You can buy a new 4 into 1 from Mac. Several retailers have them. Otherwise, you'll have to find one on eBay, swap meet etc.

Buy a stock airbox and stick with stock jetting. I believe the aggressive needles in the Special wonít play well with altered jets. No hard data on that, just my hunch.

The answer is, YES, you can.

I get 7 to nine years out of American made AGM batteries. I rarely charge them. I've been using Deka, but I think they dropped our application. My next will be Yuasa. Cheap isn't always cheaper.

VMax spin on

Do a search. I believe the VMax spin-on has been discussed and it is not suitable for the XS1100. I'm sure I read it somewhere and it was likely here.
