Bike cuts out??????

i am looking at a 1991 vulcan 750 that is mint. only has 4,500 miles. when test driving it ran perfect, started up excellent and ran great but when you hit around 5k rpm the bike kind of cuts out a little. it feels almost like a rev limited kicked in, i know the bike dont have one but thats what it feels like. i didn't notice if the bike pulled through after giving the gas for a while because i just let off right away. what could it be?? you can also email me at [email protected]

sounds like there is sentiment in the fuel bowls on the carbs, or their could be a vacuum leak at the carb boots, also could be the petcock not working right... if this is a problem that you are worried about costing a lot of time and money to fix... i doubt it... i would buy the bike, ten come back here and we can walk you through the sets and fixing.

It also could be the vent line that goes to the right air filter. The end of the tube should be cut slanted so it will breath properly if pushed in to far. If the air is restricted it will affect the high RPM's

You are tied into a thread from 2009. There is only one member from that thread that I recognize as being still active.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
