    Over on the other side of the case, where the front sprocket resides & is usually covered/hidden with chain lube, might be a metal plate with 2 bolts.

    There's a rubber plug seal behind the plate....

    It protested a bit on initial start up, not...

    I have a 1990 GSXR 1100 Yosh Duplex header a friend convinced me to buy.

    The spigots seem to line up, but the angle relative to where the exhaust manifold gaskets reside, seemed like an issue.

    So does that mean it's a WC Bandit based head or?

    What 2 valve drag head were they using prior to 98?

    I rode the bike today to top off the gas tank, since it's just mostly hibernating in the garage.

    Well,

    I looked at the wiring diagram & it appears the Orange wire only goes from the ignition switch to the fuse panel.

    I peeled back the electrical tape near the fuse box & apparently a Y on...

    It is a stock orange wire, no mods.

    Will report back if it's live with ignition on tomorrow.

    The bike would have been able to start w/o key with this wire connected to the + leg of battery , at...

    They'll fit, but the dual K&N's will be needed I believe, as the back of carbs are sort of oval shaped, so I don't think "cone" K&N's will work.

    Float height can be fussy, I had to lean mine out a...

    There was some talk awhile back (10 years ago?) about using a Ducati Monster 900 shock on a 1150.

    Since both those bikes have a similar frame construction, it might be a feasible swap.

    What about wood shims wedged under the intake/exhaust area between fins along with penetrating oil?

    Maybe 1 on the outside of cylinder 1-4 & 2 more on each side crossways on 2-3.

    Are you sure they're not BST 36mm sling-shots?

    Thought I've seen Kat carbs from the 90's on Ebay in this configuration, but with metal caps or various different choke knob set ups.

    I had an Ivan's TRE (Timing Retard Eliminator) on my old TL 1000S.

    Imagine someone locally could reflash the ECU or some shop with a dyno could clean up the mapping.

    You mentioned the starter clutch was tight, but doesn't mean 1-2 bolts aren't broken or loose. It's about $40 for the rotor puller & if planning on owning a 1100 for any length of time is a...

    Afterdarkmark,

    That's a fine looking machine!

    The colors remind me of 2BRacing's faired bike in South Africa.
