Remove the spark plug caps and dry them out. That is the usual problem point.

Why head light not won't turn on?


Two things to try, first check your fuse in your main fuse box. Make sure it isn't blown, even though it may look good, test it with one that is known to be good and of the same rating. Second thing is to check the actual bulb itself.

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp


TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

I GOT A 01 DRIFTER 1500 WOULDNT START THE HOT WIRE GOING TO STARTER GETS REAL HOT INSTALLED NEW BATTERY PRESS THE START BUTTON IT JUST CLICKS BUT WHEN I JUMP IT AT THE STARTER RELAY ITS TURNS OVER BUT...


The starter could be drawing too many amps, if thats the case it will need to be replaced. Also the solenoid. When you say there is "no spark" you mean the spark plugs are not firing? When the bike cranks it will not start?

The oil light come on and off all the time I now oil in I chang it Kawasaki 2003 805cc drifter


Check the oil pressure switch, make sure the wire is securely attached, i am not sure where it is located on your bike but if your oil is full and your engine has oil pressure than your oil switch on the motor is more than likely your problem

Does anyone know if a Drifter 1500 tank will fit a Drifter 800? Thanks!


I am not positive, but I know the bikes have different frames. As a rule of thumb, Kaw will make slight changes so the parts will not interchange. You can go to ronayers.com and look up the microfiche on both bikes to see if the tank part numbers are the same.
