kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals - Page 9


Possibly the lever's locking bolt thread has stripped or the thread on the bolt is worn. Another aspect is the splines in the lever are shot and/or the splines on the gear change shaft are badly worn. Remove lever and check the splines on both shaft and lever also check around the lever fixing section for any cracks. Check the threaded section of the lever with a brand new bolt the bolt should be easy to turn in and out by finger and should have no side to side play. When refitting the existing lever or a new one make sure the lever is a good fit on the gearbox shaft splines before you tighten the bolt.

Hi, Anonymous for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Kawasaki, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Wrong coil for service application.
2. Damaged or worn out spark plugs.
3. Spark plug gap too wide.
4. Damaged, leaking, worn out spark plug wires, boots, or center cap connectors check for spark leakage in the dark.
5. Excessive vibration due to the loose mounting bracket.
6. Faulty ground check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.

you can use a brake bleeder on caliber.
leave cover of slave cyl. to keep it full.

I would replace it with an eBay guaranteed working unit with similar mileage reading, and replace the speedo cable for good measure.
All the best!

Sounds like the seals for the disc caliper pistons are shot, and need replacing.

HOWEVER, you didn't say if it was the Front or Rear brake!

So, rear brake:

Front brake:

Items Items # 43049 & 43049A for both.

Shop it around on Ebay

undo the bleed nipple slightly on the slave cylinder , remove cover on clutch lever and make sure to keep it topped up as you bleed ! pull lever and hold as you nip up the nipple then release lever ! do this several times , be careful not to get fluid on paint work as it will melt it ! once done top up fluid and fit cover and try !

One of several reasons...
1. You are not getting the transmission into neutral correctly
2. The neutral detent spring/plunger is weak/broken
3. The shift drum locator is worn or broken
4. The shift shaft arm that moves the shift drum is worn or broken
5. You have extremely worn shift forks.
Its time to have a professional look at it... this jumping into gear will eventually cause serious damage to your transmission.

Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

you may have an air lock try opening your rad cap when cold and running your bike @ idle to circulate out air and ?or you may have an overheating problem caused by your fan not coming on and worse case scenario your engine has lean issues or lack of oil causing the engine to overheat
