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.

I have an 02 vulcan nomad 1500 fi w/ 28k miles and just recently changed the clutch spring due to gear slipping, worked great. After riding about a week and putting on at least 350 miles, on my way home...

Sure, cables always start stretching just before they snap, as one strand at time breaks and unravels.
But is could also be a lack of oil in the transmission, friction material coming loose from previous slippage and binding, etc.
You say the adjustment is ok, but how much freeplay does it have?

My vulcan 1500 1997 back fire somme time wy

lean gas mixture. or the valve timing is off, but probably both. A lean mix will run really hot and allow for secondary combustion in the pipes (backfire) when the valves let even a bit of uncombusted gas through. My guess is that the bike hasn't had the carbs cleaned out thoroughly in a while. Run a half can of Sea Foam with your full tank of gas to help clean out the carbs, but really you should take them apart and dip them to clean everything out. Also you could adjust your pilot screw settings to make it run a bit more rich, but then you are just compensating for the dirty carbs. That's just my guess.

Hi i have a kawasaki kx 125 1991 motocross bike,my problem is when running it will not go out of gear i have just fitted a clutch cable but its still the same,could it be i need new sprigs/plats or just...

it feel like the actuation of you're clutch lever does not disengage you're clutch plate ...i will think that you're clutch actuation arm ( the one the clutch cable get in... is not engage at the right place or the arm is not on the right spline)...spring and plate only is an issue when the clutch is sliping....

1500 Kawasaki Vulcan bottom end bearing failure.

The bearings are not shown in the parts list for the motorcycle. In the U.S. they are avalible under the part number 92028-1477. They are semi-finished and need to be alined honed after installation in the cases.

If the bearing has spun and damaged the cases a salvage se of cases may be the best bet.
