    Hey Sfair, I posted about an electrical problem in the 1500 forum about my 2007 1500 classic that wont crank. I've read a bunch of your trouble shooting posts and they are awesome. Any way I could enlist your help to walk through to find my problem? Bike has power, brand new battery, charged and holds power when I draw on it. I can get the starter to fire by jumping the starter solonoid but cant figure out what the heck I'm missing on power through the switches. I'm no mechanic, but I'm able to follow direction of somebody who knows where to look. Thanks

    sfair, I wanted to say hello again. You helped me a few years back with my first vulcan 1500 and I wanted to thank you for your help. I find your replies to myself and others very precise and helpful. You told me back when I was working on my 02 carbed classic that I should have got a FI model. Well last week I picked me up a FI. Now I have the best of both worlds. See you around. thanks again.

    sfair,

    Would you care to give me advice again, please? You did once before some time back and it was 100% - I'd like to get your take on another issue on another, almost identical bike. The 2008 Nomad 1600 I've ridden for the past ~8k miles spit out almost, if not all coolant through the overflow hose while idling the other day. I read up on how to refill and bleed the system and then did just that tonight. The fan does come on for short periods while it idled in my shop but nothing like I remember it running before. It also dribbled and would have emptied the system through the overflow hose again had I let it. No over-temp light comes on except during key-on and starting, etc. My reading up on the symptoms have now left me wondering where to start spending money and turning wrenches. Any thoughts you would like to share will be much appreciated.

    I will post as a new thread in the 1600 Forum.


    Thank you,

    Warren

    Hello sir,

    I've noticed by reading on here you are "The MAN". I'm hoping I can get some expertise from you on my Vulcan. I too agree throwing parts at something will usually leave you broke before the problem is solved. Anyhow, I have a 2005 Vulcan 1500 classic. 7000 miles. Having fuel pump issues. No longer humming for 3 seconds when I turn the key on. Any input you might have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    -John

    Hi, John here and I am new. NO IDEA how to start a thread?!?!? I am hoping you can help me fig it out??? I have a 2005 Vulcan 1500 fi and the positive battery cable rubbed against the frame on my 1st ride (got it used) it WAS running great then on my way home started flickering (electronics) and cutting out (engine) then died and no restarting SO I found the pos cable touching the frame under the seat (ugg) and the 15 amp fuse under the seat was blown.... Replaced the fuse and it blows right away when I try to restart.....
    checked all other fuses and none are blown. ANY ideas????
    I want to start a thread but no idea how to either
    Thanks and I look forward to your help
