Unhappy 2008 Vulcan 500 rough running

Hi everyone. I just got 2008 Vulcan 500 from the first owner. It has 1000 km on it. the previous owner said that the carb has been cleaned. But it's running like miss fire here and there. Not smooth ( all speed ). When running, the bike kind of having vibration through the whole bike that I feel it from the engine.
Start a few time when first cold. when it's warn up. start is much easier. but it's running rough at idling. Any suggestion on this issue ? Thanks

Hello from Indiana. After 24hrs you can post your question in the 500 section. You will get better help there as not all read the new member section.
