1999 Vulcan Nomad 1500 cc Carburetor issues

Is it better to clean and rebuild existing carburetor or purchase new carburetor or convert to fuel injection? The bike has 27,000 miles and is used mostly for day trips. If anyone knows the cost of these options that would be great. Thanks!

Converting to FI is totally out of the question. Would be more cost effective to buy a FI bike.

Replacing your existing Carb would be a case where your's was damaged beyond repair.

The Keihin CV carb is relatively easy to rebuild. Kits are available with all replaceable parts. Your carb should have a TPS
mounted on the side. DO NOT REMOVE OR LOOSEN THE SCREWS HOLDING IT IN PLACE. Get a service manual and follow
the directions.

I'd want to take a look at replacing the plastic oil gear while I'm at it, if it hasn't been done already.
