Unhappy Carb Woes...

How goes it fellow Vulcan riders -

Havent been on here in quite some time...I had major carb problems about a month ago, the bike would idle on the center stand, but not on the kickstand...would run 3-5 seconds and die...well to make a long story short, in removing the carbs the throttle cable assy broke off(had been fixed once before by the po)...tried 3 times tonight to have it repaired to no avail...

I am unemployed and the wife is on disability...Does anyone have a spare set that they would like to part with???

For the idle drop, thats normal...since yer carbs been "modded", you might not have the idle adjustment knob on the left side ?
As for the full mount, Im sure someone has one...Flaco has some old N/G carbs, but you might be able to get the bracket from them.
