This is a slight continuation on a previous post that I had. I started a new thread to try to get it some more exposure...
If you want some background...
My Vulcan still does not like to move after its been sitting for a while. I start her up with choke on and let her run. Ease of the choke after about a minute and let her run for another 4 to 5 minutes.
I jump on her and put her in first. I let of on the clutch and the RPM Gauge skyrockets to 4 to 5 k without me giving any gas at all. Then it just as sporadically shoots to zero and turns off. If I let off on the clutch in time the bike will continue to run. I play this game for a while before she actually starts to move forward when I let the clutch out like shes supposed to. It took at least 5 minutes to get this to happen tonight. Temp outside was 40 degrees.
After I started moving It drives fine. If I stop at a stop sign and take off I have no issues. Works great.
I stopped a friends house on the way home and KEPT HER RUNNING while I went inside. Came back out and right back to the same issue. Took me 4 minutes to get her moving finally then.
I hit 5 lights with NO ISSUE.
So it seems to me that this happens after the bike sits in one spot for an extended period of time.
Thoughts? Questions? Ill try whatever you guys throw at me.
Kevin- To answer some earlier questions you had . . . There may be some immediate hesitation but I dont feel like its anymore than me just having a good gas to clutch ratio when I start out. Im still getting a feel for it... Carbs condition is unknown other than the fact that I followed directions on this forum and put seafoam in them to clean them up. Never been in the carbs before and I've only had the bike for a month. He said he didnt drive it much this year.. Very little.. and I have new iridium plugs and wires..
RakerBill- The problem you have sounds very similar to whats going on here. Any advice on how I can investigate this issue?
Thanks ahead of time all and much apprecaited!
