Welcome aboard. I'm sure someone here should be able to help you out. Sparkyd you gona chime in and help? His 1100 runs like a raped ape.
I'm always happy to try to help. Skline said he's going to post in another area...???
We forgot to let Skline know you got to post a few times before you can start a new thread.
If you don't have a carb-sync set-up here is what you can do to get by until you get some vaccuum gauges, you have to pull the carbs off. If they are very far out of sync then it's worth the trouble.
1)Remove the carbs, leave them bolted together.
2)Hold them up to the light as you try to see light past the butterfly (looking thru the carb without using your hand to open the butterfly). You should see light coming through the crack at the bottom of the butterfly.
3)Keeping the carbs horizontal, turn them 180 degrees so you can look thru the other carb for light thru the same place.
4)The 'crack' between the butterfly and the venturi should be the same on both carbs. Use the 'sync andjustment screw' to adjust until the crack in both carbs looks to be the same.
5)Once you've accomplished that, use the idle adjustment screw to set both cracks about 1/16" to 1/8". This should get you running. Once the carbs are back in the bike and running you can adjust your idle better.
This will get you riding until you get some vaccuum gauges to sync the carbs the rest of the way.
Flatulence is natures way of reminding us to laugh at ourselves.
