My Vulcan couldn't beat a groundhog in the low end. When I hit the gas, there's nothing there at any speed, especially from a standing start. It seems to hesitate when accelerating normally, as though the revs level off for a fraction of a second before continuing to rise. It also seems to guzzle petrol; I drove to work this morning (for the first time!) and although it's only a 30 min drive across town, the fuel guage just kept dropping. I've done 130km since the last fill-up and I'm already sitting just over half-full. Oh and the engine light came on during my drive to work.
