Saving my bacon
This site has saved me quite a bit of time and trouble with my Vulcan. The other day it was cutting off randomly. I did some research here and checked the harness connections under the tank. The ignition switch harness was loose and a couple other wires had nicks. It was still cutting off afterwards and checked back on here and figured out to clean the ignition puck. Which I promptly put the three dot copper deal back in backwards. So, I had to take it back apart and then it was fine. No more trouble with that.
Though this morning on the way to work the "pull" throttle cable snapped. I took the push one and moved it over to pull duty. Probably 5 minutes on the side of the road. An older gent on a newer wing stopped to see if he could offer a hand.
Nothing major has gone wrong with it so far, all these little maintenance things will get cycled through. New throttle cable is supposed to be here on Wednesday, can't wait. I definitely like the feel of the throttle a little better with both cables.
