Help Help Help....just reentered riding arena..last bike was a Vulcan 750 and loved it...just bought 2006 Vulcan 500...15500 miles started right up at seller's garage... ok, Road it onto my trailer and took it home...(200 miles) rolled it off trailer and haven't been able to start it...seller said it would need a battery (noticed charger lying in background of his garage) he hasn't ridden it in a year. He owned it for 2 years and put a grand total of 246 miles on it I have checked a number of posts and seems lots of little idiosyncrosies with this bike for starting..Bought a new battery today and nothing...just turns over Not even a hint of firing 1) filled tank 2) made sure petcock is right position 3) kill switch not on 4) in neutral w/clutch in 5) in neutral clutch out 6) kickstand on ground 7) kick stand up and me straddling on both legs 8) choke out all the way 9) choke in half way 10) no choke at all 11) no feathering while cranking 12) little feathering while cranking...Getting the Picture...Why would it start and run and get it home and ???? Is there anything anyone can suggest?
