hello i just purchased a 1988 vulcan 750 about a month ago and i figured i would join this forum for some good advice. i love the bike! its comfortable and has some good looks!
i got the bike with only 8400 miles on it. it had sat for 3 years though without running so it needed some work to get goin'.
fortunately, 3 years ago before the owner put it up he had $1600 in maintenance done on it. new forks seals, oil, coolant, carb rebuild, ngk plugs and wires, etc. and it just so happens the guy that worked on it 3 years ago helps me with my 72' honda.
i have got the bike running after a thorough carb cleaning and an oil change and new plugs. (btw those carbs were very difficult to put back on lol) it runs but still not perfect. on occasion it wants to die when i give it gas after it has warmed up and a little bit of white smoke comes from the exhaust on the front cylinder. i am guessing the carbs need to be synced together? the adjustments were not tampered with and im not sure if they will need to be re done or not. i read the forum thread about syncing them and i got some good info but i was just wondering if there is anything else i should look at?
any help will be appreciated! id like to get this bike on the road asap! thanks
