Exhaust

Your 1981 XS1100 uses the Special exhaust. Try to find those. Some of the aftermarket 4 into 1 exhaust are more trouble than they are worth - have to lose center stand, can't get to oil filter.

Mikuni

Smart move on getting the correct Mikuni jets. You will be glad you did when you start seeing 40+ MPG.

Venturer Tank

Mike, great job on that tank. Yamaha would be proud. Another one of us just refurbished an E tank and it turned out great. Keep up the good work.

So, I went by IH that day. They have enlarged some existing areas. They put more outdoor furniture on the back porch and fire pit area. There are more covered wagons. The original owner's house...

Stuck

Warm the bike up. Keep rocking it until it frees up. Not uncommon for this to occur.

H Tank Emblems

Mike, I did actually find a company that had the correct (stick on) tank emblems for the H (no screw holes). They were a little difficult to conform to the side of the tank, but doable. I will have...

Yes, the Barney Fife - Wyatt Earl syndrome is rampant. I'm thinking that this whole deal might be UNTRUE!

Damn

Why can't you go shopping on your 2 wheeler without being run over by some dumb ass?!! Glad you are ok. Maybe they were mad that they didn't get a check?

The Right Stuff

Mike, That is the sealer I was referring to. Another brand is K&W. I have used this more many years on many applications - even head gaskets.

Permatex also offers an RTV sealant with Copper. You...

Good idea

To put a 2x4 under the front tire when bike is parked for a lengthy period of time. Doing this will prevent fuel from entering the cylinders. If there is a leak, fuel will come out of the air box...

Oil pan leak

Mike, if you end up pulling the pan again to replace the gasket, buy some Copper Coat in a spray can and coat both sides of the gasket prior to install. Works very well. Use it on valve cover and...

Crankcase

Mike, 3 quarts is definitely short of capacity. Spinning engine with starter has already primed the pump, but running will send oil to everything else quickly. I would put a 4th quart in and then...

Gas Prices

News reports that oil barrel prices are less than a case of Pepsi? Gas here in Georgia is 1.39/gallon and steadily headed further down. Predictions say under $1.00 eventually.
