Re: Brand new starter...only works intermittently

Re: Idle problems

Not likely..off belts = poor running but not idle issues..things to check, bell housing spring binding?, vacuum leaks in intakes or carb shafts, throttle cables sticking/routing..but slides sticking number one..because of the creeping back up..

Re: Top Speed

everything perfect..tires, tune, light rider..etc. and running a naked 1100, straight flat road with the wind direction behind you(the faster the better..) you could hit 130..but 125 is more likely..

Re: Reproduction saddlebag liners

Easy to make if you have a sewing machine..sew handles on fabric ends, sew zipper sides on each end and then fold up and sew the side together leaving lots of baggy-ness to fit the bags..to make really nice cut end flaps "square" and sew square ends.
