i just go a 1985 vulcan 700 from my friend. got a sweet deal for it (traded my ipod touch) his uncle said it ran fine then let it sit over the winter. he tried to start it up when summer came around and it wouldn't do anything. i put a new battery in it and it now turns on but wont try to turn over. please help me out! what do i need to check and or do. thank you
check handle bar switck, make sure its in the run position.
Oh man!! Happens though!!
Sold a 1997 Transam to a young kid a few years ago.
He calls me the next day and says "I thought you told me this car runs good and you didn't have any problems"??
I said I didn't......he said it wouldn't start now.........just on a whim I asked him if he checked the gas......there was silence for a few moments.........he was OUT OF GAS!!
kickstand switch? My bike turns on with the kickstand down... is it not supposed to? Mine's an 85 VN700 as well
It will if the bike is in Neutral, but shouldn't with it in gear and the clutch engaged. It's a safety feature that some folks disable.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
