Welp, time to part ways with the bike
With school I have been riding the tu250 (really awesome bike) and ignoring the issues the vulcan has (and going to follow the gf to wherever her residency takes her in March) so I am going to sell the bike.
It is a 1994 with 30,800 miles on the od. It has new forks/seals, progressive rear suspension, new air filters, carbs are all cleaned up, led brake light, and the tires are under 2k miles. Here is the skinny- water was leaking into the gas cap which caused problems. Replaced the seals, but the tank looks a bit rusty. It has been sitting since June. It would run on both cylinders for a few seconds and then settle on only the front. It has a good spark on all plugs but the coil resistance is a touch out of spec. Cleaned the carbs but it still has the same issues.
It has some dings on the tank and isn't going to win a beauty contest, but before the water-in-gas issue it took me on week long trips all around the east coast.
If you are interested- make me an offer. Would have to be picked up since it doesn't run (last start was in June). I really, really don't feel like parting it out due to school taking up all my time (but I am an ME major so taking it apart would feel cool...) and living in a city puts a damper on most big projects.
As a first bike I will not be forgetting it soon.
