Shared starter problem fix
Hi, I am new here. I just got my 86 VN750 last week and love it. I encountered my first issue with it not starting yesterday. I cranked it up in the morning and let it warm up, pulled it to the top of the driveway and cut it off put it on the side stand and went inside for a little bit. When I come back out and turned the key on, the lights lit up like usual, I put it in neutral, hit the button, and nothing. Not even the solenoid click. Long story short, after rolling it off a couple of times, and trying the button I got nothing. I cleaned everywhere that electrical is connected. Still nothing, then I read about the kickstand switch being a common problem. I went out and put up the kickstand then pushed the switch in and out a few times, pushed the button and she fired right up. So I cleaned the switch and the bike is back to amazing. Just thought I would share in case someone else has this problem.
