Question about 2002 kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic

1 Answer

Jump started then nothing

I jump started my 750 Vulcan with my Jeep. The bike jumped right off then it ran weak for a few seconds and died. I hooked my car back up and when I treid to jump it again there was a fuse blowing snap that sounded. After that there is nothing happening, no tree lights or nothing? I checked the fuses and they are all good. Do you think that was the starter solenoid?

No power too bike


If you jump started from a car you have fried the battery. Also possible cooked the rectifier/regulator unit. I suggest get a new battery and charge it at no more than 1 amp for a few hours. Fit the battery and see if the bike starts. If it does check the charge rate to the battery with a muti-imeter. You should be looking at just over 14 volts with about 5K RPM. Good luck and please remember never jump start from a car, van, lorry etc in fact don't jump start at all from anything.

I have a 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit, and won't start up when cold and the battery dies/no mo juice after a couple of tryes, can I jump start it with a battery on a idleing car?


DO NOT EVER jump start with car, car battery hase too much power, you will blow your fuses and maybe even ecu if your bika hase it. Thry charging your battery when it's off the bike. But you should buy new one.
Usually battery for bikes last 3-4 year and need to be changed.

When i pull in the clutch and shift into gear my bike jumps and dies. it doesnt seem like the clutch is working


That definitely sounds like the clutch is shot,like it's not even there.Inspect both ends of your cable first before going to replace the clutch.Sometimes either end of the cable will fray and pop off the little bead stopper.It also could just need re-adjusting at the clutch end.If you are up around 70-80K miles,probably the clutch though.Good luck.

2005 kawasaki 750 vulcan,starts hard and doesn't seem to be charging,is it the stator??


i have found on these bikes that if the battery is not strong enough it does not crank the engine fast enough to start easily. Especially like it sounds like you are concerned about the charging.Maybee jump start the bike with a strong battery of a car or powerpack and see if this still happens. Beware when jump starting not to short the leads you could blow your CDI.

My 1995 vulcan 800 wont start without a jump, and as soon as i remove the cables it dies.


i am willing to bet that your battery is dead because your charging system is dead. and that would make the bike do what you saying. NEVER EVER jump your bike with a car running you have run the rest of killing your charging system, because of the amps your car puts out. chack it out let me know

Biek wont start just clicking?


I drive the bike every day or two and it always starts immediately. Does this sound like a starter or solenoid or something else? Well tried to jump start the bike and it wouldn't start just the same clicking sound. Also tried to jump over the solenoid with a screwdriver and nothing happened. Then I tried to push start the bike and again nothing. I can tell the battery is weak but even push starting, I should be able to start it without a battery right? ,,,
