Have a good look at the clutch i bet its slipping like mad you need some free play on the clutch or when the engine gets hot it slips,,,,and then it burns out and then it costs you a lot to fix it up again,, that,s were your "get up and go " went,, it "got up and left" along with your cash to fix it,,,

My 2005 1500 Vulcan classic speedometer wont go past 120mph , why ?

Hi, Stepone your bike is a cruiser with a long stroke designed more for torque rather than high-speed most stock VN1500's are lucky if they hit the 100 mark and bad things can and will happen when you get into the 3 digit atmosphere, if you want to go fast it should be done on a proper race track with the appropriate safety gear and emergency personnel, if you ride long enough you will crash, it's up to you to decide how fast you want to be going when this event occurs.

If the bike has been laid up for a while without the carb's being drained, they lacquer up and need sonic cleaning to get them 100 per cent. The ringing sound from sounds like broken piston rings, the low compression reading on 4 confirm this, Sorry, it looks like major surgery required.

Not getting any power unless choke is on

Only running good with the choke on is an indicator that the bike is normally running too lean. The fact that it runs good with the choke on at least tells me it is getting fuel to the carb(s). Therefore it seems probable that there is clogging in the carburetor jets or there is a big air leak between the engine and carb(s).

I have a 1993 Grand Marquis LS at high speeds the transission will down shift and then shift back to fourth with out provocation it has done this several times on a level highway.

Sounds like the transmission is slipping. You may have to replace soon. May just need fluid though , check your fluid level and make sure it is not a dark brown color. Should be reddish. If dark color have the fluid change, any of these can contribute to it.

Cracking noise while turning-is it supposed to be in 4h during normal highway driving

You can use fifth anytime you are going better than 45. Don't use it on steep hills or when you feel the engine laboring. If automatic, generally fourth gear shift is at about 2000 rpm and will stay engaged at 45. Cracking noise generally is dry ball joints (no fittings either) Lube the remainder of the front end components and if it continues that's likely where to look.
