    Vulcan SE help

    Recently I received a Vulcan SE from a friend down the street and I started it up but when I give it full throttle it seems to only run at about 5 mph or so.
    I don't think it is fully broken in because when I got it, it was still in the box but even so should it be running so slowly?
    It seems like something is loose or isn't there.
    Also.. could this be a tuning problem? What are good base settings for the carburetor?

    RE: Vulcan SE help

    i doubt it is a tuning prob. it should still go faster than that. check to see if you clutch is sliping mabe. or do you have a stripped gear? sorry thats all i got.

    RE: Vulcan SE help

    I had a similar problem.

    In my case they put so much threadlock on the clutch nut that it could not be fully tightened. So after a few tanks my flywheel was loose. The end result is that the crankshaft is spinning fast but the flywheel is slipping. Add the clutch to that and you now have a dual clutch system = no power transfer.

    To cure this I had to remove the clutch nut, clean the threads and add just a dab of thread lock. Now tighten and your flywheel should be secure.
