2000 1100 Classic Carbs!

Hey all! I am new to this forum. I inherited a 2000 1100 Classic. The beast has sat since 2005-08. Regardless it's sat for many years. I will be tearing the carbs apart (which I dread). What do you recommend for a rebuild kit and Jet kit? I will be modifying the exhaust and air box during my venture into getting this thing running.

It only has 2300 miles on it.

You shouldn't need a "rebuild kit". Give 'em a good cleaning and make sure all the passages are clear and you should be good to go.

Jetting changes will be based on what you want to do. If you're just drilling holes in the air box as well as the exhaust, no real change is needed as it makes a negligible difference.

Now if you're adding pods and a full system that is a different story.

So slight mods to exhaust and air intake will not likely require re-jetting. So far the carb looks good and untarnished. Once I get my daily bike on the road again, I will tear into this carb and see what's what.

I have to say for an 18 year old carbed MC, it sure looks complicated underneath the tank.

I rarely have to put any new parts in a carb. Usually a good cleaning will suffice just fine. You just have to be careful with gaskets and rubber parts when taking it apart as well as cleaning.

I use carb cleaner in a spray can and also use compressed air to clean out the carb and jets.

you can download or print an image of the, carb breakdown so you'll know what your looking at , it's not as complicated as you think. just make sure you use tools that fit well so you won't strip the brass parts

What model of carbs are in the 1100? I've had no luck in locating a printout.
My google skills suck

I should note that I have extremely minimal experience with carbs. I've managed my way through a couple many years ago. Just not a lot of carb exposure during my time as a mechanic.
