I HAVE used, and will always use B&H. Covers look stock, fit well, and are a good price for the quality.

The GL1000 should fit. All the header companies made just two or three different sizes to fit almost all the Japanese bikes. Heck, a 750 set may do the job! biggest thing is pipe diameter, as there...

Carb bodies are a "pot metal", or alloy of metals. Jets ARE brass.
The problems are the new "gas" and the water it attracts because of the alcohol that is now in it. Gas from the late '70's was just...

As a HAM radio operator, I've been using Deoxit for years. You DO need to be careful, as it IS conductive! On the bike, I use it for all ground connections and the dielectric in small amounts for...

If you are bogging at one speed, I would take a second look at the carb sync. Classic sign of one carb being "off" a little, and bringing down the bike. A set of gauges for vacuum and 20 minutes is...

I do not have the contact info for JP. This is one of the reasons I can't do much. The other is my background is in hardware and not software/firmware. I just don't have the skills needed to try and...

The mount on an XS11 SPECIAL should be close or the same. I would look for a 1980 or newer.

The Pacifico is a MUCH better fairing, IMHO! If you've never ridden with one, you will notice the better top end and fuel economy over the Vetter "barn door".

Easy, tell here it's $150 to have the local shop do it once, or $75 and you can do it as much as you need to.

IT DOES NOT MATTER IF YOU DIDN'T TAKE THEM APART, ONLY THAT YOU TOOK THEM OFF!!

Yes, they are almost the same. I believe they have the "YICS" system, a balance tube between all 4 carbs. They DO have the bigger valves, though. It should be easy to block the ports between the...

The first stock HD faster than the XS1100 was the V-Rod! With a little work, you can outrun most Harley's in a "normal" race. I like to race one way, put both bikes in high gear at 30MPH, then roll...

The '80 and up are "big valve" heads. The only thing is the chamber is larger, so compression is down a bit. I think the Wiesco drops to about 9.75:1. You will want the early TCI and advance...
