I replaced the starter on one and did the starter fix on another. My total experience with them.
I have grown to hate those springs!The 1100 is a special kind of stupid with its reserve tank system. Still not sure I have that working right.
Not much progress but I put the centre stand spring on today. Used the old washer trick but still managed to punch the floor and bust a knuckle. My luck with fingers isn't good.
Woohoo! Got the carbs and fuel pump sorted out finally.
Looks like by attempting to omit the low fuel light I had confused the fuel pump controller. Reconnecting the two wires for the light brought the pump back into life.
Then I had a look at the carbs. The floats weren't closing when the fuel pump was on. So off they came again and I reset the float levels.
Worked perfect and the pump now shut off when the carbs are full instead of leaking over the whole engine and dripping onto my floor.
