running on 1 cylinder, fuel coming out of exhaust manifold
i'm new to the site. i couldn't find a search feature to look for a solution on the site.
anyway. i took a ride about a week and a half ago on my 93 vulcan 750. it's all stock, w/ 40k miles. bike did fine.
i changed my back tire(took wheel off, took to dealer)and put it back on. only a week had gone by....i fired it up and it was only running on 1 cylinder. could hardly get it to stay running and ran really rough. i determined was on 1 cyl by feeling the plugs. my rear cylinder plugs were way warmer than the front.also, all plugs were somewhat flooded..but the front were dripping wet!
i confirmed i had fire on all 4 plugs(turned engine over w/ plugs grounded to engine).
i had noticed was getting some 'drops' of fuel on floor when cranked and ran engine. tonight i found it was coming from the front cylinder's exhaust manifold...the pipe for that cylinder has been smoking really bad too from the fuel(found this in the several times i've had the bike cranked to tinker w/ it).
anyone have idea what my problem could be?
the carbs actually havent been synched since 2000! I'm pretty sure it was needing that done.....but surely that can't be causing what it's doing now. just 2 weeks ago it was still a joy to ride...as responsive as ever.if anyone has a clue, i'm all ears!!
