Hi guys,I've got a 2001 vulcan nomad 1500fi and after sitting for a few days in the garage, when I go start it, it runs rought and stalls. Can it be an injector that leaks because it seems flooded. When I give her gas, black smoke come out of exhaust.

Black smoke is unburned fuel. Could be worn engine components, spark plugs, or other items. Does the smoke stop after the bike starts and runs for a bit? Here is a link to download the factory service manual. Go to the troubleshooting section for help in what to check.
