Question about 1998 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
Sounds like a drive shaft problem. Could be bent teeth that only mate properly when moving forward and jam up when moving backwards. Easiest thing would be to remove the rear wheel and check the condition of the drive teeth on the inside of the wheel hub and the output face of the shaft. If they look okay, try turning the shaft without the wheel attached. If this sticks in either direction it will require a strip down and may even be back at the gearbox. Sorry, but it could be a big and costly job.
