Newby, hot start problem
I inherited an 86 vulcan from an uncle that never got it on the highway. Soon after he bought it, he got really sick and died from his illness. When I got the bike, I knew nothing of it's history or repairs. It really has been a journey fixing it up. I really want to make it a memorial for my favorite uncle. But It seems that every time I take the bike out for a ride, it won't restart. I have to let it cool for a really long time. I have a clymer repair book, but it doesn't mention anything about it. I do have a missing vac hose just infront of the seat above the rear coil. It has a nipple sticking up, but I can't find any diagrams that help. I don't have a California model. Please help if you can. I have a nervouse wife that doesn't like the idea of me riding that old of a bike, with mechanical probs. Nor do I. Thanks in advance.
