Question about 1992 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan
When idling the bike runs great after warmed up. When i goto ride it, it starts to chug and **** and eventually dies after just a couple blocks. The bike sat in a garage for almost 5 yrs. before i bought it. I've checked and gapped all the plugs. Drained what little gas there was in and put fresh mid grade gas in. Plug wires are good. New battery installed. Ran Sea Foam additive in with the gas hoping that would help but it hasn't. I have a 92' vulcan 750 it starts, it runs, it idles ok. When i take it out it runs strong then after a short period of time it starts to bog and eventually stall. It will not restart unless i let it sit for about an hour. When it restarts it no longer has power. it stalls in a shorter time fram and will not restart again. I let it sit a week and it seemed ok for about 1/2 hour then it started again
Check the intake manifold/s, even a small leak will make it run poor. Being stored for five years then putting it into use, you may have a blocked main jet. Sea-foam is a great product and I would have used that product to store the bike but not to get it running. It is slow acting so it doesnt work like carb cleaner.

Sounds like what you realy need to do is remove the carb jets and give them a good clean , this if I am right is the twin V 8 valve engine with twin Klhein carbs , make sure also your air filter is not dirty and check tank fuel filter ,, other than that you may be intrested in the manuel obtainable from this site
hope this helps good luck .. and Live long and prosper lol .. Regards Vortash
