    I've been failing at finding anything on this site related to ST-1100 carb sync. Can anyone point me in that direction? I found a few lousy examples out in teh internets, nothing I was happy with.

    Sadly, the old st1300us.com forum just dissolved and disappeared. There was some great technical information on there. There is still ST-Owners forum and I think STnet or something like that. The second one, if you can find it will be more helpful I think although there should be members of both on ST-Owners. If you try joining either of those forums I am sure someone can help you out.

    Great looking bike by the way.

    Thanks, I'll give it a go at one or both.

    Real knowledgeable but grouchy guys especially in winter. Not as active ST owners but helpful. You may have to join to post questions.

    Thank you! That's the one I was trying to remember. st-riders.net is going to be very useful but I am almost positive you have to join and that takes a minute.

    I'd suggest ST-Owners also. Great forum and great people. Lots of good technical info.

    BTW, beautiful bike.

    Request submitted for membership. I wait for now. The documents on this topic are not giving this dummy everything he needs to get this done.

    Here is where I'm losing my mind. Where are these "caps" or whatever, where I would hook up the gauges to check the vacuum levels? Those larger vacuum lines look like part of the PAIR system, but I'm not completely sure. That aside, I see nothing that looks like an easily accessible place to hook up a vacuum hose (or four).

    Have a look at this video, although not in English, the mystery tubes and caps are revealed.

    I'll surely give that a look. But first.......I went to start the bike this morning, after charging the battery (It sat too long), and I get a "Click" from down near the battery, and all the lights went out. After about a minute, they came back on. I pushed the starter button again, and "Click". Same thing. So, I'm thinking starter relay, but would that take out power to the entire bike, and recover after a minute?

    I definitely don't have those tubes, and I'm almost positive I don't have what I assume is the vacuum operated petcock they were fondling. I'm on a phone call now, and will go for another look after.

    Is the battery charged enough? Sometimes a weak battery will give same symptoms.
    It could be the starter relay. That happened to me a few years ago and it was exactly as you describe. Here is a similar situation. Hopefully you can open this link

    There is also another known problem with a melted connector

    The simple solution would be a bad battery. Jump start it and see if it turns over.

    Looking at the pics and scouring my foggy memory, you should be carrying enough fuel for 400ish miles? I seem to recall the STs had a fairly large tank to begin with.

    Looks like it was the starter switch on the handlebar. Must have been a bit of grit in there, or something. I gave it a few pushes, just out of curiosity, and it came back to life, and has been normal since. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. :lol3

    i'm not exactly sure how many more mile it will go carrying the extra 3 gallons but somewhere over 400 miles
