First, introduce yourself in the newbie section. Second, is fuel getting to the carbs? Have you opened the bowl drains to check?

Yes and ? Give us a little information on the condition of the bike plus give us an introduction of yourself under the Newbie Check-In if you will. You haven't told us anything such as the condition of the battery, how long since the bike ran last, any modifications from stock, etc. We are good but you are making things very difficult by holding back any information on the bike. Be sure to read the Vulcan Verses.

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.
