I just bought an 05’ vulcan 500. She’s having some issues. I know the jetting is very off, the idle screws are almost falling out of the carbs. it breaks up around 45-50mph or with more than half throttle unless the choke is all the way out, but subsequently idles way high with the choke all the way out and just fine in or half out.

Just make sure to pull those pilot jets out of the float chamber and use a guitar string or similar to ensure that the main orifice and cross-drilled holes are all clear. Blast the passageways out with carb & choke cleaner and air pressure - both ways.
