My 2009 Kawa Vulan 500 LTD fires on one cylinder

My 2009 Kawa Vulcan 500 ltd only has 900 km (about 550 miles) on the clock. It has started misfiring on one cylinder. Upon start with the choke both cylinders run well. Without the choke it runs on one cylinder. If I ride and accelerate the second cylinder eventually comes on with much throttle. The bike goes boom and it is pretty dangerous. Because the two cylinders can fire (with the choke or at high throttle) I don't think it's the sparkplug or any serious valve issue (and the bike is almost new). Is that a dual-carb synch problem? I tend to doubt it because the problem just came up and did not occur gradually. I drained the tank and put fresh gas but that did not help. Any thoughts?

With the bike being new you wouldn't think it's the spark plugs, but you must remember that those are the first plugs that motor has had in it. the plugs are always supposed to be changed at the first service. try changing them and see what happens.

take a look at you plug wires and cap if they are worn it could cause the spark to short, and yes a sync never hurts.

Hi, Anthonyri303 after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

2008 kawasaki Vulcan 500 LTD will not turn over


Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.
