Hi there, i have a 1995 vulcan and has been running just fine up until this morning
She wouldn't start in standing position (kickstand (ing))....when i sat on her propped upright she kicked over just fine
Kicked (standed) again and she stalled out
Sat upright runs, lean over stall...and so on
Any ideas what the issue is?
Much appreciated

Check electrical connections in the head stock and maybe the key. Doesn't quite sound like a fuel issue, but it could be the fuel bowls flooding as well. I would assume the electrical route first, though, given it's a on/off problem

Sorry, i don't know what you're asking here
With some recommendations posted, should i be going to a mechanic for these?...perhaps if i need to ask, then the answer is yes?
lol

Sorry, should have said introduction instead of intro and my phone autocorrected it to into.lol. just a little introduction as to how long you've been riding, wrenching experience, location (local members may be willing to stop by) thank you

this is my second season of riding, i purchased a 1995 Vulcan 800, the previous owner converted it into a solo seat (shes friggin beautiful!)
I live in Ontario Canada and thought i would try out one of these forum things
I am far from a mechanic, but not scared to try anything out....been working 'tools' for well over 25 years (just can't 'trouble shoot' anything auto)....i'm a home builder, not a mechanic lol

The bike starts and rides fine, had her out at lunch for a rip....she conks out when i lean to put on the stand or simply lean her to the kick side (if that makes sense)
This is the first of it happening, she had typically started while on the stand, but not this morning

Anything else?

Thanks

So you have an 800... sorry this forum is dedicated to the 700/750,which are two completely different bikes. You might not find a lot of answers for the 800 here.

Do you have a 750 or an 800? Sorry but I am being serious.they are too completely different motorcycles and most on here are not familiar with the 800.
