2002 Kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan dies when put into gear


Hi, Kdompe357 and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty wiring to any safety switch.
2. Safety switches loose at the mounting point.
3. Faulty kickstand safety switch.
4. Failed kickstand safety switch circuit diode.
5. Stretched side stand spring.
6. Side stand not coming up far enough to disengage switch.
7. Faulty clutch lever safety switch.
8. Faulty neutral safety switch.
9. Clutch not properly adjusted.
10. Clutch plates sticking, forward lurch

Starts & runs & idles great until I put it in gear & release the clutch then it stalls


Sounds like the kickstand switch is shorting out. It only dies when put in gear. If you have had your switch removed, check out the wires, if the switch is still there and working, check out the switch, it might need a shot of wd40. Check it out.

I have a rattle coming from my 2001 vulcan 1500.


You need to be really careful-it sounds like a bad bearing-bring it to an independent repair guy who has experience-doing bottom ends you need pro's theres a guy named zimmerman he writes mc books find him in a bookstore or web. it may also be a clutch problem

Something is rattling in tranny or engine?


Its worth openning again the side cover and re-inspect that nut, not bad too if you can remove the clutch basket taking care of the plates as how they are fitted so that you don't get confused on assembling.
Check for the wear on the basket where the clutch plates go in and are thn driven especially those notches, check too the gear that mashes with the clutch system for any wear and not bad to check the springs too in the clutch basket.

Hope this helps .

Starting and once started won't run


The problem seem to involve a number of circuits, I would suspect the Key switch as it supplies power to all affected systems. The dieing on release of the clutch is usually the kickstand safety switch. If the kick stand is not up, and the bike in gear, then when the clutch switch detects release is kills the engine so you don't kill your self.
Check or replace these switches.

Hope this is of some help.
