The service manual, no doubt. This is from the 1994 manual:

WA, that se picture is just plain scary. :shock: Would you happen to have a picture for a 1996? When I set my cruise on 80 mph, it falls down to 76 and then holds firmly. I'm thinking, I need to check my vacuum lines for deterioration. Also, where would be a good place to start? ;)

A good place to start would be the 90 degree elbows - they tend to deteriorate on the insides of the elbows, causing vacuum leaks.

Thank you. I'll try and put this task a little higher on the priority list. Also, can my vacuum leak be causing harder starts when the bike sits for a couple weeks? Is this a related problem , or do I need to look elsewhere?
