Hey all hopefully Im not posting similar issues here but I couldnt quite find what I need searching....
Sooo 96' Vulcan w/ Vance and Hines my carb timing is all messed up. The bike used to run OK but it always seemed like it needed carb work. So I got the manometer and did the syncronization after checking the fuel level according to the Clymer manual. I definitely made it worse. Now I cant go more than 20 mph ha.
According to the previous owner the bike was rejetted bc of the increase of alcohol in gas to 10 % or whatever -- rednecked. this is ridic. its been that way for a while here in DC.
Anyway upon inspection looks here ive got a #132 Main Jet and a #38 Pilot. IS this stock??? Also there are no shims under the jet needle ( that long one with the spring and diaphragm under the top cover)
I feel like to get the bike running correctly it would be easiest to just go back to stock... but I really like this earshave procedure
after taking the damn airbox and carb boots on and off and on and off . those k&n's look sick on the side and seem so much easier to work with. My dilemna is just if I can get it working under normal conditions how can i do the earshave!! If I did follow this procedure can I use all the parts he lists??
Thanks in advance for any advice.. Here are all the Jets listed from Carb Parts on the part diagrams.
13091-1384, Needle Jet Holder ( threaded piece that holds Main Jet )
O and there was really no fuel gummed up in there, understanding it can be the smallest of things , it doesnt look like anything is wrong with these carbs.
