what starter solinoid crosses with a vulcan

SO I buy this bike the other day,
I take it home and dont touch it till a week later (needed a plate) SO i get the plate on and try to go for a ride. i hear clicking. Not starting or cranking.
I charge the battery to see if thats the problem. dosnt crank....

So I jump the starter solinoid, it cranks but dosnt start.
So I jump it again )nut to nut) and hit the starter button. fires right up...

Now for some reason i have no headlight. Are they tied in together???

Also can anybody tell me what or where to find a cross reference for the solinoid. I would go to Kawi but they wanna charge $125 for this that I know can be found in an local autozone for like $20 or $30


I have a 1993 750 with nothing really done to it but part replacements. Stator and Reg rectifier..


Thanks in advance

Go to the Sell and Swap forum and inquire. Someone may have a spare for sale. Also check the ebay link to all things vn750. Might find one listed there. If that doesn`t find one quick, send a PM to Crobins - our parts lady. We need to keep you out of the stealership. LOL

your solenoid might not be the problem though... just because you can bypass it and make the bike start, doesn't mean its toast... there is also a start relay inside the Junction Box that can't be replaced... also along with the headlight issue, this leads me to believe that your Junction Box is toast.

Do a search in the threads of the VN 750. There is a lot of info on the JB box and how to check it out. Good luck. I would go with Slim that is most likely your JB box, at least check it out to see if it is good or not.

The Junction Box, JB... is the fuse box located behind the left side cover.

Check pins 6,8,11,and 13 for power with key on. all should have battery voltage, if any single one doesn't have voltage, you have a problem with a relay inside the JB.

X2 to slim and lance`s suggestions. Don`t jump to conclusions too fast, you can spend a lot of money needlessly.

You should be able to test the solinoid/relay for proper function by pulling off the connectors for the two small primary wires, and using a small jumper wire directly from each post of the battery to touch the relay contacts. Polarity should not matter. If the relay is good, you should hear a click, and current should flow through the relay and large cables to the starter.

If you do not hear a mechanical click from the relay/solinoid when you apply 12 volts to the small connectors, you can be pretty certain the relay is not functioning.

(Here is link to an electrical charging system trouble shooting tree from Elecrosport. It is not exactly what you need now, but save it for when you do. It does have some valuable advice for checking, cleaning and waterproofing wiring connectors.
