Re: 1996 XV1100 metal shaving in oil

yes and thanks for afterthought. I will be adding manual shut off for fuel. I had considered fuel in oil due to trying single carb mod and all issues had with it. but didnt consider just draining due to no fuel shut off. thanks

Re: 1996 XV1100 metal shaving in oil

Re: 1996 XV1100 metal shaving in oil

Re: 1998 XV1100 HELP DESPERATELY NEEDED.

I tried 1 carb set up, it sucked in the bad way . I bought a used set for 300. or so .had to use slow jets , float / needle valve for float . anyway I have the shells of my old carbs , no jets , valves , floats ect. 50. plus shipping if that helps. just need to clean bowls and put your inerds into.
