No doubt! I took these pictures while checking / adjusted the valve clearances right after I bought and got this bike home. I changed the oil over to Mobil 1 V-Twin Synthetic 20W50. This bike was sitting for several years without being ridden, and it showed. Sadly enough, I have found a correlation between all of my seven 1100 Sports, after I got them home, which is that they all were sitting for years without having been ridden. One of my bikes was sitting on display at a motorcycle museum for most of her life, three others were sitting in privately owned collections, one of my bikes was sitting in a guys man-cave for the last twenty years, one was abandoned in the woods for the last seven years, and the last bike was owned by an older gentleman who got to old to ride this bike. I guess I noticed that my bikes were not used as a means of a daily rider, but more so as an occasional weekend toy, when the weather was nice. And the average person who bought the bikes back in the days was probably in their 30's or 40's and probably well established in their lives, since the 1100 Sports were not cheap bikes when they were sold new. I believe that the 1100 Sports, when they came out, were more of a Gentleman Sports bike versus the younger squids, so those bikes took the back seat when it came to family and work, so they ended up sitting for years in their new roll as Eye Candy for their owners, until the owners for whatever reason decided to finally sell them off, to people like me, who also is way to busy with life then to really enjoy them out on the road where they belong. It's a little sad for the bikes to be sitting like this, but it will ensure on the other hand that those bikes will be around for many many years to come. Either way, talking about the oil, I am using LE "Lubrication Engineers" motor oil in my Corvette now for over 20 years, and I really like this 50:50 blend of Synthetic : Teflon. The Teflon keeps all internal engine components coated in oil, which will help reduce the engine wear during startup after a bike was sitting for weeks, or sometimes month without having been rode. So I am planning on using LE oil in my 1100 Sports after I used up all of my Mobil 1. I got my own little oil store going on in my barn! The oil pan cleaned up nicely too.
