Bike Stalls - Stuck in denver on cross country trip
i could you use help asap. i'm on a cross country trip from san diego to boston and i am stuck in denver.
i left san diego a week ago and the bike was running great until last night. my ride is a 2003 vulcan 750 with 15,000 miles.
the engine stalled a half dozen times in the last 20 miles i've ridden it. the first time, it was lightly raining outside and i was going about 55mph and suddenly the RPM's went from 3500 to 0. the bike restarted without a problem but once i was on the road again the same issue occurred. it also happened at slower speeds.
i immediately went to the closest kawasaki center but it was a half before they closed yesterday so there wasn't much time to troubleshoot. the mechanic thought the problem sounded like an electrical issue with the ignition. they made one change but it didn't fix it. they disconnected an aftermarket 12-volt car charger (for GPS etc) that the previous owner installed. by the way, all the spark plugs looked good too.
any suggestions? anybody know a mechanic in denver? i have a friend of a friend here that might be able to help but that's it for my resources.
