Kawasaki Vulcan Classic 1500

Installed new clutch. Re assembled bike and found I had pinched a wire and shorted out part of the system. Replaced blown fuses and everything works except the starter. Cannot get it to turn over nothing
Put new 30 amp fuse in starter relay but still nothing am I missing a fuse or have I blown the starter?

Was any of the wires cut through?  Just a shot in the dark, but try unplugging and re-plugging the wire connector going into the clutch lever.  If that doesn't work submit more information.

1997 vulcan unable to pull in clutch lever


If the lever was fine as you bled it then the problem lies elsewhere, either the slave cylinder is stuck or the push rod mechanism in the clutch itself is assembled wrong.

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.
