Oh wow, nice site. I'm new to the biker game so excuse my lack of biker folklore. I did crash last year if that helps any, broke my Clavi...(collar bone.) was in a sling for a week til I decided to hop back on the thing and go get my endorsment. I've had nothing but fun ever since. I drive a 99 Vulcan, 800. I'll put some pictures up when my wife shows me how to. God Bless.

I love it! I hated it at first until I tore the carb apart and figured out the previous owner, or a shop he took it to, totally messed up the jet kit. I love the bike though. It's a rare bike and you don't see many around so I'm always getting compliments on the looks and sound of it.

I'm assuming that before the carb job the bike was sluggish? Which brings me to another question. How did your 800 excellerate on the Xway after you jetted the carb. My 800 has quick excelleration up to about 75 mph. After that it becomes an ol'boot, sluggish! I bought the bike from Biker Bobs on 11-08. Plus I got a spring tune up at Dynamic Power Sports on 4-09. Carb was clean. Tips?

It did not like slow speeds. It ran really rough up until about 35 miles an hour.

I accelerates fine now. I don't do much expressway driving but I don't have trouble on the times I have.

Anything done to it like pipes or intake? There really is nothing for our 800's besides pipes, jet kit, and intakes.
