  3. VT1100C Fast Jets - re-use old ones?

    Technical Discussion
    I am rebuilding the carbs on my 1997 VT1100C. The stock fast jets are both 178. I am using a kit from ALLBALLS Racing. It came with everything except only 3 jets - a 175, a 178, and a 180. No new matching pair. I am anxious to get this job done ... reuse the old ones? They are clean. I am...
  4. Any options for taller final drives for VT110?

    Technical Discussion
    Hey yall, I do 75% of my riding on Texan highways, around 75mph. I've got the VT1100 Spirit. This bike, not having a sixth gear, really protests going those speeds. No pulling power, and smack dab in the no-mans-land of the powerband, where peak torque happened 20mph ago and peak power isn't for...

    My name is David and I live in East Texas, I ride a 2000 VT1100C, have had her for about 4-5 years now. Pretty much bone stock, just ordered parts to start the bobber conversion. At one time I did have bags and a windshield on her but took those off late last year.

It was in some type of way. Busted off footpeg, useless edgy mirrors, and the mufflers seem to have been cut in half and...

    General Bike Discussion
    Hi I'm looking for a Bagster tank cover for my '88 Vt1100. Q: Is the '88-'94 models the only 1100's with the gas cap placed at to right side of the tank? I have found this Cover, but i'm not able to figure out if it fits my '88. Tia. Carsten

    Technical Discussion
    Wanted to start a thread for this model. Interested in hearing from other owners, and learning more about its history, it’s quirks, and it’s technical resources. Didn’t see a thread come up for this here. (I know this has a business logo, but it’s the nicest photo I’ve seen anywhere of this...
