Question about 2002 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Meanstreak
Mean streak surge during throttle acceleration slow speed @
Hi, Jaddsac1 and the usual suspects are:
1. Extremely lean fuel mixture.
2. Dirt, rust, water, or ethanol sludge in the fuel system.
3. Sticky throttle cables.
4. Multiple carburetors not in synchronization.
5. TPS sensor out of adjustment or faulty.
6. Wrong spark plugs for the type of service.
7. Throttle bodies not in synchronization (FI)
8. Faulty O2 sensor.
9. Clogged, stuck, or faulty IAC valve.
10. Aftermarket components not compatible with ECM.

Could be running too lean, check the color of your plugs to know for sure, black and dry is rich white and blistered is lean.,

Check the ground wire at the battery, at the negative post at the battery you'll find a smaller (black/yellow) wire, it must be plugged into the main harness, it might have become unplugged, the connections will be right close to the battery.

Hi can you just try something for me leave the fuel filler cap off and then start the bike and see if it will run properly if it does then this means your breather is blocked now this could be the cap itself or you may have seperate breather but well discuss more when we narrow it down a bit, if it makes no difference then the chances are you have a blocked fuel filter.
let me know what happens ok
