On a new-to-you heavy ST bike, you're either being intentionally funny and unserious or someone I don't want to ride behind...
you bought a new set of engines! You ARE cautious!

Youíll soon learn that I am VERY funny, hilarious even, and only serious when absolutely necessary.

See, that's one of the first signs. Sad!

One safety item: check the fuel line connectors between the tank and the bike.
Stock come as straight through barbed plastic bits that become brittle over time.

Some have reported them breaking while riding and spraying raw fuel down the side of the engine.

The boneyard offers metal quick disconnects that are significantly more robust.
When I replaced mine, one of the plastic units broke while I was trying to get the barbs out of the line.
I try not to be ham fisted and don't think that was the case this time.

Thanks, good tip. I notice I still have original oil sight glass and have that on order from BBY. I am procrastinating the tank removal (fuel filter, throttle cables, etc)... so much plastique! Will do that at the same time.

the 1100 doesnít come with quick connect(s)
one can upgrade and add 1 since there is only one feed line . itís a different set up than the 1150 or the k bikes .
you can add if you choose but use banded hose clamps or the FI pinch type if you have access to the install tool . most donít so banded is fine .

you donít have throttle cables .and the junction box.
you have 1 mega long cable .
if you feel you have to replace this then wait until the tank is off , yes .
youíll wish you hadnít .

Contact these guys and ask which product is best for fuel.

CPC was the supplier for the original plastic fittings .
the male end lasted a decent amount of time , then the male end became brittle .
bmw changed to a CPC stainless male . the females in plastic are still in use with no issues .

the aftermarket fittings are sold as a pair, M-F chrome plated brass.
unknown maker.

Over time Triumph and Ducati both have had issues with quick connects . Tri went with alu replacements for the plastics.

I donít recall what Duc supplied to give to the techs to replace the Ducati OE.
