1997 Kawasaki VN1500 Vulcan Classic how to rebuild the starter

I have a 1997 Kawasaki Vulcan Classic (1500cc's) that will occasionally refuse to start. When I push the start button, nothing happens. I have discovered that, if I put it in gear and rock it a little, it solves the problem and the bike starts. Any ideas as to what may be happening? @

SOURCE: Motor shuts off as soon as I start to accelerate.

Might be a fault in the side stand sensor, you cant go far with the side stand out, or if the sensor has not sensed the stand is up.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I adjust the shifter lever up or down on a Kawaisake vulcan 1500cc 1997 model


At the end of the gear lever ( the part that attaches to the pivot ) there is a ( usually ) size 10 (metric) bolt, unscrew it and you will have released the lever pull it out gently and adjust to your foot's delight !! After that just screw the bolt back on.
