CRAP DANG IT ALL TO HADES!! Had an flipping air leak on the right carb holder and had to dial the air mix screws out to 6 turns and now its fixed,I think anyway lol. I swear sometimes you just need to walk away from a frustrating problem for a little bit and come back with a clear head and plenty of good vulcan forum advice.

Thanks everyone, if it weren't for you I would have had to put my pride aside and take it to a shop.

I had this feeling many times when dealing with my old Suzuki GS450. While frustrating, it really taught me some patience and how to think about the machine analytically. Also when to just walk away from it and revisit it later.

The world of technology (like having Bike Forums) has helped a lot of us. In the old days, you either took the bike to a mechanic or did a bunch of poke and hope to fix problems. Very nice to be able to ask and get the help of others knowledge quickly.
