I'm confused. You are in a V-Star forum on a thread for 1100s, but you say you would avoid "anything that has carbs". Since no V-Star has FI from the factory, have you replaced your carbs with fuel injection? If so, was it a difficult or expensive changeover?

Anyway, I've put 140,000 miles on my 2 carbureted V-Stars (650, 1100) over the past 9 years, riding from North Carolina to Denver/Colorado Springs ... without a single problem ... and nearly all on ethanol mixture, I'm wondering where you get your information?? All I've ever had to do is set the idle screw a tad higher when I get in higher altitudes, and all is fine.

A lifetime of doing everything twice...
