I had a problem with the bike cutting to 1 cylinder occasionally but only when the engine was hot. Turned out to be a bad connection at the igniter.

I'm ear shaved with stock exhaust and at 1st I ran 142 42 but it was running a bit rich so I then tried 140 42 before finally settling on 142 40 as the best fit for my bike.

I got a 1300 VTX and it is a great bike for the open road but boring compared to the Vulcan 750. Keep the Vulcan, you'll be glad you did.
