What’s next?

I have a 82 1100I with 72k mikes on it, that I have been tuning up. So far I’ve rebuilt all 3 brakes, both cylinders, replaced the water pump, changed out the fuel filter, adjusted the valves, synced the carbs, tightened up the loose stator bolt. My next project is replace the timing belts, and update the dogbone fuse along with the fuse block. Any other suggestions on what to do next? I’m having a blast working and then riding the bike after each tweak. Bike is running smoother and goes faster than when I first got the bike.

Thanks in advance!

fork oil, check the gas tank for crud?, rear shocks good?, replace dog bone fuse with blade fuse,

Front forks have progressive springs (I think), ran a few treatments of Seafoam through the tank, when I looked inside, there was no rust that I could see. Rear air shocks seem to be holding air. Might just have to put down the tools and go for a long ride to enjoy the beast!

Check the date of each tire. If over 5 yrs think about changing them out.

Santa is bringing me two new tires. Just ran Seafoam into the carbs via the fuel filter. Going too let it set for a few days, then run a few treatments of Seafoam through the tank.

My two questions are:
1. Is the choke linked to all 4 carbs, or is it only linked to one bank of carbs?

2. When I pull out the choke the rpm's only go up by 300-500 rmp's. Max I've ever seen out with the choke pulled out is 1500 rpm's. Any ideas on what's going on?

Thanks fellow Wingers!
