Vulcan 800, carb setting for straigt pipes???
So I rebuild my '96 vulcan 800 into a bobber-style.
Tank has been replaced with a Harley sportster tank, intake is the stock housing and filter with the back inlet part taken off, and I made my own straightpipes out of the stock ones with db-killers inside.
It fires up and idles with no problem, but trying to drive is a whole other thing.
between about 1/8 trottle and 3/4 trottle it completely bogs down. You can get going woth a little gas, and pulling full trottle will make it go, but anything in between is nothing.
I pulled of the carb and cleaned it, but there was no dirt or gunk in it to begin with, all jets where clear.
Now I have been messing with the adjustment screw (it was out 5 turns when I took the carb apart) and set it around 2-1/2 for starters and then went to 3-1/2 now but I can't seem to get any improvement.
