So its been hot lately and i started noticing my bike felt like it was out of gas, backfiring, loss of power but still running. and yesterday i noticed my turn signal was on but not blinking(i think this is due to a bad front bulb) but as i was trying to start my bike everything lost power, all the lights went out. nothing. i let it sit for a while and it turned on. what is going on. 1994 kawaski vulcan 1500

I have a 1997 Vulcan , mine would spit , sputter and back fire, maybe 1 to 2 miles when first heading out, you would think it was running out of gas and needed to be switched to reserve, I was miffed for a long time, if you warmed up the bike with choke for a long time before leaving it would help. finally I replaced the diaphrams " air cut off valve " they are easy , on side of carb. with out removing carbs, got them from JC Witney in a couple days $ 40.00 each. it fxedi my problem, much mor





e power too, I'm sure on a 95 they are rotted and need replacing , good luck.
