    i had the feeling it was the carb all along but lately it hasn't been warm enough to check my theory again. thanks a lot sam

    when i start it up it has the same compression on both sides.after a minute or so the compression on the right side feels no more than 1/4 the compression. i threw a timeing light on the plug wires and it is getting spark. at least the light works.i talked to a person at work that thinks it may be the air jet not adjusted properly.i will say that it has black smoke comeing out the tail pipe

    First off you have only one carb, so there is no way to "sync" it.  When you say you lose the front cylinder, what is it doing to make you think that?

I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

I have a 2000 Vulcan Nomad FI & had a very similar problem. In fact, it's a very common problem with these bikes. I fixed it by replacing the Clutch Spring. (As Described here: http://www.gadgetjq.com/clutch_spring_replacement.htm
