False alarm
 
So tooling into the 'ol J.O.B. this morning running 60+ for about 14 miles pull in and hear "Racket" coming from engine.I was like dammitt now what??Worried I had run it out of oil maybe.Closer inspection found that breather tube/hose under right side "ear" had come off,so there you go. :doh:

ubertalldude 07-11-2018 05:20 PM

do you mean the main intake duct from the ear into the airbox?

Yup,easy fix!! :grin2:

Wait,no...not the main duct/plastic.I said rubber hose.

Wow 10 days since last "issue",new record for a Vulcan!!Going in Ol J.O.B. today brief loss of power/gas at 60mph 5th gear.Downshifted bumped throttle after few seconds "picked up" rode fine(??)Had 1/4 tank stopped filler-up,rode on 65+.Should not be "POOGS" did that Mod.'Course it does sit under some tiny cover so LOTS of wet/rain/moisture for days on end.

10 days is a record? Sounds like a lemon. I do mods to prevent things from occurring. Only issues I've had a long time ago was having to wait for the engine to cool down so it would start.

Not a lemon...a Vulcan!!
