Help! Bike won't start
Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and new to motorcycling. I have owned my 2001 vulcan 750 for about a month now. I've put close to 500 miles on her, changed her oil, washed and waxed her, made room in the garage, tried to do everything right.
Then, last night I was going to go on my first ride in the dark to my buddy's house. Started off fine, but, heading up a hill in 4th gear I noticed that the engine seemed to stop responding to any throttle that I was giving. I slowed down and stalled out.
After that, I could not get her started again. At first I thought that it might be something as stupid as having the petcock off, but no, that wasn't it. I had to push about a mile home (thank god for the 4-ways and not being too far when the problem arose). I let it sit overnight and the engine still won't turn over.
I am looking for any suggestions from you guys for a possible cause.
Thank you guys in advance, I've seen you help others in the past and hope that I can benefit from the community as well.
