Hey Everyone, love this site!!!

Hey All....
Been lurking here for a bit, and finally signed up!!
I have found so much useful info here...Thanks!!
Bought an 02 1100 Classic a few months ago.
Came pretty much stock, V&H slip ons, Mustang seats, windshield, bags.

So today I finally finished installing jet kit & pods, syncd the carbs.
Wow.... what a difference!!! Its like a new bike again!
Before I couldn't go down the freeway for more than 10 min before the shaking really got to me.....now, super smooth!! Found myself at 150KMS most of the way tonight! Love it. Was way out of sync I believe.
Also it used to pop and fart all the time, but today barley a complaint.

Thanks to everyone for their posts and input on this site. I now have a renewed faith in this machine.

So my next query is, should I remove the AIS ? Will this make it run any better? Any other performance mods suggested?

Cheers from "The Wack" BC

Welcome to the forum from nearly the other side of the country, Ontario. Lots of good info here, just ask.
As far as the AIS, the recommendations I got were to remove it. One because it looks ugly, second, to eliminate backfiring on deceleration. Not that hard to do, and it really does clean up the looks of the engine.
