Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check the burn color of the spark plug tips to determine if it is lean or mix. If lean, then a possibility for the bogging down would be an air leak. The air leak could be from the warped / out of position coupling tubes from the air box, airbox cover, torn air filter or even installing aftermarket free breather air filters similar to K & Ns (with having done a re-jetting/tuning).

Additionally, you could drain the carb bowls individually to determine the quantity and quality of fuel from each.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

There is no need to run anything other than regular gas in the bike, the extra octane only makes the VMax engines run hotter. I would start by adding about a half a can of Sea Foam to about a half tank of gas. Run it at idle until the new mixture is in the carbs 7 or 8 minutes ought to do it. Leave the bike sit overnight, then top off the gas tank and take the bike for a hard ride, ride it like you stole it, this should clear your problem. CV carbs also need to be synced once in awhile and should have been done if you rejetted.

Possible Intake boots leaking causing a mistfire and running lean. Make sure you run the harley plugs. Is there a power commander on it ? If you do they are known to go bad and mess up runablilty.
This may be a long shot but since you have the magnelli marelli fuel injection system , you might need a hot/cold idle adjustments and clean out the inside of the throttle body.

The problem is most likely clogged idle jets. The solution would be to mix some additive, like B12 or Sea Foam, with your gasoline and go for a ride. You want to make sure you ride enough to get the gas into your carburetors. While riding, the additive will clean your carbs, but when you park the bike with the engine off is when it will start soaking into your idle jets. Depending on how clogged they are, it may take a while. The alternative is to remove the carbs, and clean the idle jets. I would try a couple of ounces of cleaner per gallon of gas and then ride it around and see how it works. It has worked for me 3 out of 4 times. Good luck!

Keeps stalling out

If it starts fine and idles fine but then stalls or doesn't have power when you juice it, it sounds like a fuel problem. It is unlikely a carb issue if it gets regular use and as long as its not sitting for long periods of time. I would first check the fuel filter. If that's fine, then I would check the vent hole on the gas cap (if you have one). If it is a gravity-fed fuel system and the vent hole on the gas cap is clogged with dirt, dust, and debris, then the gas will not flow to the carb fast enough and you'll get a very lean mixture. Sure, it will idle fine because the engine isn't demanding much fuel at idle, but when you open up the throttle it will stall because the air:fuel ratio will be too high (symptomatic of a lean mixture) Last thought: Dirty air filter Let me know if this helps

Remove the bottom bowl of the carberator and replace the needle-valve and float - cleaning this area as you do so.  Sounds like the float has a hole in it or the needle valve in the carb is sticking.  Use some fuel stabilizer prior to storing for winter next time, if not the old gas turns to shellac and makes things stick.
