1-get an AGM battery
2-check to see if it is flooding on either cylinder,and if so,try the Wolfie blowback method. it's a sticky in the carb section.
3-can you please give us an introduction in the newbie section?

Did this problem just start, or exist for the whole "riding season" this year?

Are you running stock air filter setup, if so are they in good condition?

Everything doc said is a good start regardless. Have you ever serviced the carb? Did\Do you drain fuel from bowls during 'off season'? use stabilizer?

Have you check spark color? or done a plug read?

Thanks for the replies guys and sorry about the picture I am new to forums in general. I am going to head over to the carb section and check out the sticky mentioned above and try out this blowback method. I never checked the spark plug because the Vulcan was starting without any issues but now you mentioned it I will be pulling that out and making sure it's nice and clean.

A few of the other things mentioned i'm not sure what they are so affter a little googling I will be back guys. I will also drop an introduction post.
Thanks
