Question about 1999 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
Drove bike to florida from jersey. Bike shut down at 60mph. got it restarted then shut down again after 15 more mmiles. Kaw dealer in south carolina said oil gear exploded and seized engine after they had it for 2 weeks. Is this possible? Are there any reported problems similar to this?
Yes, it is possible. This has happened to others through the years and the problem is usually caused by a lack of oil and oil filter changes. Dirty oil can plug up the oil system and cause the bike to seize.

Yes because factory oil gear is plastic/nylon **** which melts.
