Question about 1998 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
Not sure if I can solve the problem, but I can tell you what happened to me.My rear plugs were sooting up constantly indicating a rich mixture - I replaced the air filters, and even fitted a crankcase breather (somebody told me it might help). I found that Iridium plugs worked better for a while, but they sooted up to eventually causing it to stutter.Turned out to be the carbs - there is a vacuum diaphragm in them which has a kind of rubber coating (silly thing to put near petrol really) anyway mine broke down leaving a sort of mesh diaphragm - so it was basically pulling more fuel through than it should when idling - if you take off the botom chamber of the carbs and you have litle bits in it then thats your problem too.

Make sure you have new plugs and verify battery is good.
