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.

It can be the Heat Sensor or there is not enough Water in the cooling System and the sensor Gives Signal to cool down with switching on the Fan .

Sounds like u have a open cell in your battery , replace it , you said you had issues charging not lighting or running so this answer is based on the assumption there's voltage coming from stator is this accurate?

I wrote a Fixya tip for car but it can apply to motorcycle engine also.

DO the hydrocarbon HC dye test ASAP.

Bulbs, power or ground.
Power to most of those bulbs is controlled by a fuse.
Usually the various signals are just ground switches.

Ignore all these idiots. The engine does not need to be remove. He must own a dealership. Simply remove the large air tubes to the right carb and move the left up out of the way. The bracket is on the left side, then feed the cable to the right between the carbs, a bit tricky. You'll see the choke lever on the back right of the carbs. insert in the cable holder. You have to bend the cable up to slip into the holder, the back down to lock it in. Before all of this, attach to the hand lever first.

The stator comes off with the right front side cover If I recall correctly. All you need is a set of metric wrenches.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

or water in the carb bowls drain them

other is ignition issues or bad plug

1996 kawasaki VN... | Answered on Aug 23, 2009


Two possibilities........you didn't drain all the old oil out, or you didn't hold the bike in a straight upright position while checking the new oil. That is assuming you correctly interpreted the manual, and that you ran the bike for a few minutes before checking the oil level.

Hi Todd:
Sounds suspiciously like it would be brake fluid.
Check to see if it is connected to the rear brake master cylinder. (that's the thing that has a shaft that is connected to the brake pedal)
Motorcycles like Grade 4.
