Hello to all. Right now, I am struggling with getting my 87 ZL1000 started. Plugs/petcock/fuel filter are new and carbs are cleaned and adjusted. Bike cranks hard but doesn't fire. I"ve gotten it started in the past (with extreme difficulty) but not anymore. Anyone deal with a similar problem?
Also, I am thinking of getting a mint 1994 Vulcan 88, but will use the bike to tour with a few times a year. It has only a 4 speed and I am wondering if I will find it suitable for that, given that the transmission was developed during the 55 mph era. Travelling at 55-60 mph on today's interstates seems to put you somewhat at risk. Thanks to any who can address these issues.
