evulcannibal My initial guess would be an electrical issue.
Check grounding wires. Might also be the ignition switch.

Nitrospaz9 Why were you riding with the choke on?

Vulcan 2007 500ltd stopped working following these cirumstances:

Hello, I bought a used vn500 '07 with 11k miles 6 months ago, fixed up everything two detailed inspections discovered, changed the battery and an hour ago i drove to the diner with choke on, as i turned off the bike and left with the keys after 5 yards, a huge explosion was heard, i'd say louder than a backfire which I never had on this bike before. I went into the diner, 30 mins later I go out, start the bike, since it was still warm, i put choke off after 20 yards, it goes smoothly, i go toa friends place for half an hour, as I leave there and attempt to start the bike: a) ignition lights and everything goes on fine, as I click the starter it CLICKS and everything goes off, I try the key back and forward again, lights go fully on, not low, not blinking, butstarter turns everything off, after that I kept moving the key back and forward, it turned on the lights only occasionally, but eventually stopped fully, again, without them dieing, so questions: a) could whatever happened be linked to choke on driving an hour before? b) could the explosion an hour before made a mess somewhere? c) battery or contact suddenly messed up after 6 months of use?

Regards, Alex
