You removed all the CA emissions and air box? If it is legal in your home state then it would be fine otherwise you are not going to be happy if the Government found out your illegal modifictions unless it is for off-road purposes.
Did you reinstall the air box again and use an air filter?
If you didnot then install it back and see a difference.

More than likely it is your reserve lighting device, located on the right side of the battery box. also test battery voltage at rest, then start and recheck with a volt rest should be at 12 or a bit over, cranked should be at around 13 or 14, rev engine, you should be at 14 or more, had same issue on a 92' ended up being stator was going bad, and rectifier was replaced.

2002 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan hard to start when cold

Hi, Gd2bbahun I would take it back to the dealer and have them fix it properly or ask for a refund and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Vacuum line from the petcock to intake manifold cracked.
5. Float needle and seat sticking.
6. Float level too low.
7. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
8. Idle adjusting screw set too low.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw set too lean.
10. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
11. Slow fuel jet clogged.
12. Faulty fuel pump.

1983 suzuki gs 750 New airpods and jets. Bike not running right

You are dealing with Suzuki vacuum carbs, you cannot just replace the air box and re-jet. What you are running into is there is no pressure to raise the diaphragm because there is no restriction to create such vacuum. Either put the stock box back on or go to the biggest main jets you can buy. Sometime even when you get stage 3 jets you still have issues. Vacuum carbs are not made to run with no restrictions.....putting aftermarket exhaust on it will make things much worse.

1995 kaw jet ski 750st push start button and it just clicks it was running great new battery and new plugs

Open the electronics box and jump the solenoid . If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter, and the starter works , you need starter brushes. If the starter has burnt coils, has a shorted armature , or is wet inside, you need a new starter.

Looking for information on removing the california emission system on a 97 vulcan 750 motorcycle

The best advice I can give you is DON'T DO IT. Alteration of original equipment emission control devices is prohibited under Federal law Title II, 40CFR, better know as the Clean Air Act. Since the engine was designed with the emission controls as an integral part of the engine, instead of the power and performance robbing junk slapped on to vehicles in the late 70's and the early 80's, alteration will not give you any significant performance improvements.
