    wondering if the float is adjusted properly. if its not shutting off the fuel when filled, then it could drain towards the filter. have the carbs been cleaned lately?

    definately coming from the airbox or from the carb overflow tubes?

Vulcan 1993 750 backfire issue everytime i let off


This is often caused by an air leak , inlet manifolds, exhaust gaskets into the head or the gaskets between the headers and muffler.
This is assuming all the rest of the bike is set correctly, valve clearances,airfilter, clean carbs

1999 Vulcan 800 overheating


it sounds like a head gasket has blowen out on you or its running very week on fule that would cause it to run hot but to boile up like you sead it did that bothers me a bit?
did you fit a new thermostat as soon as you found out it was over heating? if you have cooked the engine you may have damaged the pistom rings as well,, get a compreshion test done on it to find out,
dont ride the bike till you have sorted it out
