Question about 2003 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Meanstreak

1 Answer

Kawasaki Mean Streak

I have a 2003 Kawasaki Mean Streak that I bought from a private seller about a month ago. It has been running well until today. I started it, let it warm up, and when I put it gear and released the clutch the engine cut off. Yes I had the throttle was engaged. I tried multiple times with no success. Any ideas? Thank you!
