Hi, Stepone your bike is a cruiser with a long stroke designed more for torque rather than high-speed most stock VN1500's are lucky if they hit the 100 mark and bad things can and will happen when you get into the 3 digit atmosphere, if you want to go fast it should be done on a proper race track with the appropriate safety gear and emergency personnel, if you ride long enough you will crash, it's up to you to decide how fast you want to be going when this event occurs.

Need radator for kawasaki vn 1500 classic tourer 2001 is the driffter the same radator as the vn 1500 classic plz hellllllllllllp


TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

Vn800 meter


Have you checked that the cable is tight? These bikes have a rep for them coming loose. Just take out the bottom bolt of the dash, and lift up; give it an extra 1/2 turn with pliers past finger tight.
