Book Excerpt: 1996-2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 Classic, Drifter, Nomad Repair Manual
The troubleshooting procedures described in this chapter provide typical symptoms and logical methods for isolating the cause(s).
There may be several ways to solve a problem, but only a systematic approach will be successful in avoiding wasted time and possibly unnecessary parts replacement.
Gather as much information as possible to aid in diagnosis. Never assume anything and do not overlook the obvious. Make sure the engine stop switch is in the run position and there is fuel in the tank.
An engine needs three basics to run properly: correct air/fuel mixture, compression, and a spark at the right time. If one basic requirement is missing, the engine will not run.
Learning to recognize symptoms will make troubleshooting easier. In most cases, expensive and complicated test equipment is not needed to determine whether repairs can be performed at home.
On the other hand, be realistic and do not start procedures that are beyond your experience and equipment available.
If the motorcycle requires the attention of a professional, describe symptoms and conditions accurately and fully. The more informationa a technician has available, the easier it will be to diagnose the problem.
