Fuel Solenoid Shut offs

So, in the process of taking the carbs off the bike, AGAIN! Both wires on both fuel shut off solenoids snapped as I was unscrewing them. Is there an alternate fix to buying new ones? Or should I just suck it up and pay for them?

Wow...I actually checked the KB first, and I scrolled right past it. Facepalm!!!

So, if I only have slip-ons for exhaust, then I'm assuming I still need the shut-offs to work since I don't have a full aftermarket exhaust.

they stop the fuel from flowing into the carbs, i think if you knocked the bike over while it was running they would shut off the fuel so then the bike would only run until the float bowls ran dry.

Ok...then I'll just order a kit from Mick to stop the check engine light from flashing and be done with them. Thanks.

Actually I don't think there is a tip over switch on an 1100. I believe they are only there to keep the cats from getting flooded with fuel.

thats what what i thought at first so i checked clymers to be sure before i posted, and i misinterpeted what i read. actually clymers says the valves shut off the fuel whenever the main switch or shut off switch is turned off. i know i read rollover and flooding cats somewhere i removed all those parts when i got rid of the fuel pump..
