I recently replaced the plugs and battery because my bike wouldnt start at all unless hooked up to a battery tender. Now the bike starts every time, but in the low RPM range, I am getting a lot of miss fire and hesitation. The carbs were just cleaned and rebuilt, but I do not think they were synced. Could the carbs not being synchronized cause this? Or is there some other problem I am over looking? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Dude, you're posting in every catagory! And yes, you should have the carbs synced, especially if you had them rebuilt and cleaned. Also, what else did you do? How's your plugs? And it sounds like your battery is bad or needs to be charged.

Im only posting it in multiple categories because Ive been having a problem with getting no help, lol and the plugs and battery are brand new, which stopped the problem of the bike not wanting to start without a battery tender, but i still have miss fire in the lower RPMs, but a sync is what i was thinking

Ignition timing could be off........ could be running lean.
Also check the plug wires, vacuum hoses, fuel line, etc......
there are a million or so things that can case a miss

If you double or triple post your problem in every forum you will just piss everybody off, and nobody will respond. My advice is go back and delete the the threads on the other forums before anyone replies to them. It is frustrating as hell to reply to a thread, then think it was lost when I run across a carbon copy on another forum.

For your benefit and any others new to this forum, you can find all posts since you last logged on by clicking on QUICK LINKS at the top of the page, then click on TODAY`S POSTS. You do not have to search each individual forum for replies to your threads. Don`t ask how long it took me to figure this out. lol

Excuse my shortness in the first paragragh, I don`t often vent like that.

BTW, welcome to the Vulcan madness.

Please don't do that. Folks here are very helpful, and usually very timely with a response. But multiple posts are annoying, and more apt to result in folks ignoring all the posts.

do you smell fuel at idle, have you removed the plugs after running for a bit to examine for flooding. yes it can even happen on newly rebuilt carbs. when i did mine I accidentally had the floats set too high. causing it to flood and stall after running on the highway.

You mention new battery and plugs. Many folks here report good results with AGM batteries and iridium plugs. Have you tried any of the suggestions yet? When you do, let folks know the results.

So i think i found the culprit, today i took the plugs out and they were already burned up and black after just two short rides. rich mixture, so im thinking a good tune and sync of the carbs should fix it
