sputtering at cruseing speed .

1993 Vulcan 750 , having problem at cruseing speed no problem going thru the gears , great power. As set speed to cruse start getting a acts like running out of gas , as soon as advance throttle it goes away . Just had carbs rebuilt and new diaframs installed . Could it be electrical ?


SOLVED , fuel vent on gas cap plugged

check the carb vent hose(s). should be in 'dead' air.

stock config they (1 each carb) go to a 'T' fitting, then from there to the right ear. Make sure the end of the hose is cut at 45 degrees to allow proper venting.

if ear shaved, place end of same hose someplace in dead air (under tank, top of frame rail works well, as does the extra fitting on the cover for the gas gauge)

Excellent first post and introduction but happy holidays just the same. x2 on the POOGS. More information can be found on this subject by doing a search of that particular subject.

All kidding aside, please do an introduction under the Newbie Check-In heading soon so we know a little more about you and can give you more specific information geared to your particular mechanical experience.

going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
