Question about 1998 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
I have 12.35 at the battery no blown fuses tail light comes on with ignition on but nothing else no horn no head light not making a sound when I press the start button
You may be having detonation. Switch to premium gas. Do not use gas with Ethanol. Change to a new spark plug > NGK DP8EA-9. Run through a couple of tanks of gas and see if the problem has gone away.

well i would try the switch and see and if that doesnt work then check the wiring for a loose connection or ground or maybe it could be as ez as checking the light bulb it might be loose in the socket

SOURCE: Ignition Fuse keeps blowing
From another forum,
"You've got an exposed hot wire somewhere in the power circuit that's grounding out and causing resistance in the wire. Not sure how to help on this one, electrical problems are damn near invisible, but I'd start looking for a burn mark or scorched insulation on any of the wiring leading up the relay, starter, or main fuze block in the tail."

Have 2002 Vulcan 1600 Drifter. The tail and brake lights will not work. They were working rear turn signals do. It blew the fuse twice, now it is not blowing the fuse but still no lights. Got power to the fuse and leaving it not arriving at the rear light. The plug in,before it goes inside the rear fender, what color wires are what so I can check if things are arriving there O.K.?

i use 89, my cbr recommends 91 but i cant really feel a big difference but i do feel a slight power loss when using 86..but it does run fine!
Actually a higher compressive motor should use a lower octane.. it helps it start up easier , also using thinner oils like 5 or 10w will help for easier starting in colder climates. can i get a rating on this one..thanks!
