1995 winter project?

now i have a question: do you think i need to change all rubber tubes/connectors that runs from carbs to air? and also solenoids?
they still the same since 1995...
bike runs fine except the idle that is a tiny bit instable despite i already sinc them.

anybody knows if theremis a way tu buy the full kit? or i must have to get all number parts for each one of them?

It is usually the rubber joints that join the tubes to the various metal plastic and metal joints that perish.

As long as there are no sharp turns or bends you can use rubber tubes from the auto parts store. Take the old ones with you to make sure you get the same size.

Still not sure what I want to be when I grow up.
I have 2 other bikes. 2001 GL1800 and 2000 HD Dyna FXDX. Can you say MBS?:

On the other hand - do they really all need changing? There are many older Wings out there still running well on the originals. But I agree it is a good winter project to help pass the time.
