Hey Hyde, I have had it on the road 6 times so far this way. I took it apart at the start of the week though to check the carbs out. The bike doesn't start good at all if at all after its been running. So the carbs are all stripped apart and I ordered some filters to do the diy pod kit. The intake boots were all cracked and a few other small things I have found.Hey Nick!
There is a few us in the Barrie area here.
Nice 1100, have you got it on the road yet?
Hi Lesblank,Welcome from Houston Texas. Nice color combination.
A must read for all new 1100 Owners:

My wife saw the shirt and asked what the age span was of our forum. So here's a quick survey, participate if you wish. I'm not trying to be noisy, just curious. Of course my wife says age and maturity have nothing in common, she says I'm a 2 year old in an old man's body. ��www.starbikeforums.com

This is an idea I have seen on another forum, and it seemed like a lot of fun if enough people participate. This forum has more than enough activity that it should take off. The basic idea is this; while riding find certain objects or signs or whatever to take a pic of your bike in front of...www.starbikeforums.com
If installing pods here's link for jetting, about half was down article. Don't forget to sync.
Ride often and safe.
On my 1100 with pods, full Cobra Slash Cut exhaust, IAS delete I ran 150 mains and the the stock 17.5 pilots and fine tuned with PSM screws. I would suggest that combo as a good starting point.I have read the wiki article on jetting multiple times. With vance and hines slip ons with no baffles, pods and hypercharger. Looks like I need 150s and 20s
Perfect, that is the combo I will start with for sure. Thank you very much!
How come its suggested to buy new screws? Can you not run anti-seize on the screws after you clean them up good. Never strip the heads if they don't seize in the carb. Hopefully that's not a stupid question!!For jets, you can go to Harley dealer, they used same jets on their carbed bikes for years. Just get jets, bowl gasket and new bowl screws. That's all you will need.
The hyper charger will not increase power enough to offset the issues they cause. Search our forum for the issues they cause. They are great looking to look at. Just stick to pods for time tested performance and reliability.I am hoping to run the hypercharger to pull in even more air if I can figure a way. I will definitely have the vacuum line hooked up.
I read some issues with them, thought maybe it was worth trying. Just having vacuum hooked up works for me. They look so bada$$ I think with the butterflies lol..my personal opinion anyway!The hyper charger will not increase power enough to offset the issues they cause.
