If you modified the exhaust or intake you will have to re jet the carburetors.

I have a 1996 1500 vulcan and it's not firing on the left side, I can smell raw fuel and there is no power, any suggestions please


I've got the same Vulcan. It has 2 coils. If one side is not firing then check the coil that supplies it with power. Easy to check - use a "light" tester and see if it lights up. The coils are underneath the tank / seat.

I have a 1996 Vulcan Classic 1500. It has two air cleaners, one on each side. However, the guiy I bought it from said it only needs a filter in the one on the right?? Does anyone know about this?


This is correct. The left side is just for looks. There is only one carburator. make sure your jetted properly if you change exhaust.
keep baffels in for back pressure or you could burn valves.
This bike handles great, but you need to remember that it is a heavy bike and will not stop as quickly as most. You'll find it's purrrrrfect at 50.

Poor a/c performance, not cold enough and right side seems almost warm (hemi V-8)


If the a/c works but not as well as you like, then it's likely that the charge of r134a is low due to a slow leak.

Get an r134a recharge kit with 1 can included to see if bumping up the pressure of r134a solves your problem.

Also, sometimes there are zoned left and right a/c and heater controls that can be set so that the passenger side (right side) is warmer or colder than the driver's side (left side).

Try the above and I wish you luck on this repair.
