    Learning Valve Adjustment

    WJB... you are correct! That is my old '95 ST1100 that I owned for about 5 yrs and sold back in '14 when I got my '05 FJR13. It was a great bike and served me well for about 30K miles. I checked valves, changed the T-belt, water pump and also did the 40amp alternator upgrade which was...

    Hello from San Jose, CA

    Hello, Thought I’d finally post my intro message because I’m back looking at the Super Ten again… I actually joined this forum back in July of ’16, did some reading and then moved on. My current ride is an ’05 FJR1300 which I‘ve had for 6+ yrs and it’s my year-‘round daily driver for the...
