Question about 2002 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
2002 kawasaki vn 1500 classic.
ignition lights came on whilst riding, engine stalled. now have no ignition or electrics.everything works and bike will start and run using a power pack but everything shuts down when external power is disconnected.
Check the ground wire at the battery, at the negative post at the battery you'll find a smaller (black/yellow) wire, it must be plugged into the main harness, it might have become unplugged, the connections will be right close to the battery.

This can be a faulty battery,bad battery connections,water ingress,charging coil short,rectification unit malfunction or bad block connection,
The VN series have an additional earth strap so look for bad connection or rust as rust can cause resistance (electrical resistance).
As jetskid says the yellow/black wire will need to be looked at as Kawasaki in its wisdome made this a sepperate connection and can come loose as on some bikes the wire can be quite tight.
