Hard Starting- Especially When Warm- Long Post
New to me '89 Vulcan with 18K miles. Driven it about 300 miles with the only issue being almost impossible to start when warm. To start when cold, I need to hit starter with "choke" off and soon as it fires, quick put on choke. Warms up OK and eventually runs fine without choke.
Took an uneventful 50 mile ride today in superb weather. Gas got low and as it sputtered, I did not get it onto reserve fast enough. Tried staring until battery wore down. Called son to bring truck and just as we went to load it started on reserve. Got home OK after stopping for gas.
Here's the question: Soon to go into the basement for winter. Don't mind pulling this apart if there is something I can address on the carbs. Any recommendations on things to chase or modify?
Great to be back in a saddle again after 4 years off. Tim
