no im not on any messengers but thanks for the help offer i may very well need it but for the time i think everything is worked out. previous owner took bike to a retard to have it jetted and piped. i didnt find out i had a real problem until a trip to mexico. great time to find out your bike is messed up.

you need to get a 1100 Shadow Spirit, all of your troubles will go away!

and not a little SS750, thats a toy!

i had a 99 ace and loved it but my big ass needed more engine so the 1100 sabre was much like my old bike so i went with it. the guy across the street from me has an ss but ive never seen one run nor do i know anything about them. with any luck my bike is fixed and im happy. on the other hand if its still screwed i will see what kind of air it can get off the nearest bridge close to my insurance company

My '02 is also piped and jetted with a K&N filter. I also had some issues with hot pipes and some rapping on deceleration. I believe the previous owner had the larger ( 70 & 73 mm ) jets installed. It seemed to be a bit too much and was fouling the two plugs in front of the intake runners. I was able to asjust the needles and lower the idle a touch and it runs like a charm now.
