Kat, I have that trailer with the electric/hydraulic brake package. There is no way I would try and pull it with an XS11. I got it to pull with my Goldwing before I crashed. Never got to pull it with...

Not worth it

It is not the petcock itself that is leaking. It is the mating surface. New o-ring, new screws, new screw washers, and still leaks. Tried permatex moto gasket, and it is down to less than a drop in 8...

Running Again!

The Cruise Missle is once again running. Cleaning the carbs did the trick. Balanced them, but need me a good tach to set idle mix, as my ears aren't good enough anymore.:o Installed the stock exhaust...

Carbs

Well I know now why it wasn't running on 2&3. Got the carbs off, and I think every hole that can be plugged is.:eek: Got them all disassembled and it is going to take much time and effort to get them...

Sane?

I've been called many things, sane is not one of them!;) I'm sure hopeing that is it. Chasing wiring on these machines, is quite maddening. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

ignition

I should have checked spark before I messed with any wiring. I pulled apart the common wires going to the coils. One seemed a little loose. I tightened both female fittings and reconnected. The blue...

Air box

Yes the air box is intact. What are your suspicions on the electrical. The coils are aftermarket accel I believe. I'll have to look a little closer.

Thanks

Thanks Greg, I thought I remembered seeing somewhere that was the case. Should be pretty easy to see the wiring now that tank is removed. Thanks again.

Tearing her apart

Well the last time I started The Cruise Missle, she was not firing on #'s 2& 3. At that time, probably middle of March, I was thinking it was one of the coils not firing. I was thinking 1&3 and 2&4...

Nice!

Well done James. Although I wasn't a fan of the early wings, that is a beautiful restoration. I have a 2002 wing now, and it accelerates as hard as my '80 XS11 special. Which is pretty amazing for a...

Alcohol?

Looks to me, from the time stamps and content, alcohol might have been involved. Just sayin'.:)

Profanity?

Why the profanity?:confused: I find that more disturbing than the other responses. Of course the mod for this link likes to use that profanity as well, so I guess it is OK.
