Hey, I have a vt1100c3. Just bought it and it doesn't have full power. It tops out at around 55mph and after fires alot when revving or letting off gas.
Was told this was all new stuff
*Ignition packs
*Water pump
*Plug wires
*Plugs
*Tires
*Battery
*Carbs rebuilt and synched by shop

Now it will start right up and idle alright. But after going down the road your only able to get it up to about 55mph flooring it. It just has no power at all. Only thing I have noticed as that the battery will not charge. It will stay charged enough to keep lights on as in it won't ever fully die that I am aware of right now. But will not charge up on its own enough to turn the bike over more then a single stroke of the piston.
Any ideas? Thanks in advanced.

So I have narrowed it down to the carburetors. It is running very rich. I played with the air fuel mixture and got it from 55 mph to about 70. Any ideas on other adjustments I could make?
