OK,



1. Locate starter solenoid (relay). Remove heavy cable that goes to starter.

2. On connector on top, push red meter lead down beside yellow/red wire , at connector, to contact pin.
3. Black meter lead to battery ground.
4. Key on, push start button take reading.




Post back with reading.

Don’t think I’m following but I will know more when I’m sitting there looking at it, are you wanting me test voltage where the screw would have been where starter wire connects?

On the starter solenoid, there are 2 screws with heavy cables going to them.
Remove the cable that goes to the starter.


Also, on the solenoid, you will see a connector with 3 wires. That is where the yellow/red wire is. When you see it, you will understand.


Please ask any questions or if something is not crystal clear. No problem.

Oh, not so good.


1. Locate junction (fuse ) box.
2. Locate, at connector, black/red wire.
3. Red meter lead down beside wire to contact pin.
4. Leave starter cable off.
5. Key on, push start button and take reading.

I know this is off topic, but I am considering buying a VN2000 and was searching this forum for reliability issues. I have to say I am so impressed with people like sfair for putting the effort in to support other owners. This really makes me more confident about my purchase.

Was poking around, tan and black had 12v, most were hard to get a reading on just because of the positioning

???? I am not sure what you are saying. Kawasaki does not use the color "tan" anywhere.

Maybe I’d say it is brown then? I will send picture tomorrow
