Question about 1997 kawasaki VN 1500 Vulcan Classic
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? @
Hi, Dan you have a dead spot in the starter armature commutator for this scenario you will need your service manual, 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.

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.

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.
