I picked up an 02 Vulcan the other day. It has 8000 miles on it. The previous owner said the bike had sat for over a year. He then brought it out of storage and started riding it. He said he rode it for a week or so and then he said he was cruising along at about 30 mph and he said something started squalling and the oil light came on. He then said that he pulled the clutch in and the engine died. I am kinda thinking that he noticed the oil light after the engine died but not sure yet. I have checked and I have good spark and seem to have good compression(however have not checked it yet). Also checked cam timing, appears to be good there. When I turn it over sometimes it will backfire through the carb and sometimes it will afterfire out the exhaust. However it only does this maybe once or twice and that's all. I even tried a little ether to see if it was fuel related and it made no difference. Any suggestions what I should look at first? I drained the oil (which was overfull) and checked the strainer and didn't find any metal or anything. Thanks to all!
