Welcome to the Vulcan madness.
The idle adjust screw is down on the left side and has a black knob for finger adjustment.
Idle speed should be set at 1100 rpm +/- 50 rpm.
The stator/alternator does not charge at idle speed, so the headlight will dim until rpm increases to 2K or more.
Here is the MF-AGM battery you want when you need to replace your`s:
If you have a K&N filter on your car, and have a re-oiling kit for it, I suggest using their spray oil on the Vulcan filter. It is very easy to over oil the foam filter by pouring on engine oil. This will restrict the air flow, and cause a rich fuel mixture. When cleaning the foam filters, dry them by pressing between layers of a towel. Do not twist or wring them out. IIRC, there are instructions in the service manuals, and I`m sure there is a thread here too.
Here is what is in the Vulcan verses:

|slimvulcanrider||the foam air cleaner should be able to be cleaned with mild dish soap, wrung out and air dried. then wet the foam with 30wt engine oil. and yes the breather cover is better known as the ear or air box.|

Thanks for the replies guys. So this breather cover, is that where the air filter is? Speaking of, the foam stuff with the air filter is pretty dirty, should I replace that stuff?
Yeah, I think the idle is around 800 or so right now so I should find the idle screw and adjust it in right? Sorry if these questions are dumb, I have the service manual, just havn't had time to look at it due to 2 family reunions this weekend (ugh). Thanks

Welcome to the forum, Freedom.
There are lots of places to get gear... it's worth looking at New Enough, especially their closeout section. There can be good deals to be had.

|slimvulcanrider||is K-100G a fuel stabilizer as well as a fuel system cleaner?|

Correct Old Dog. The idle should be between 1000 and 1100k.
I forgot to add the other alternative to seafoam and IMO a better one. K-100 mg It is excellent stuff and formulated specifically for the new ethynol mixed fuels. I have been using this stuff over the seafoam and I do see a big difference. Some may say "Blasphemy!" but I have done extensive testing and found K-100 mg to be the better choice.

I agree with the above ^, but would also like to add, I think the idle speed is around 1,100 rpm (think that is right), and if you are lower that would cause the headlight to dim also...
Just make sure your idle speed is adjusted up to Spec. ... Others correct me on the 1,100 rpm if that is wrong...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
