So then, barring a loose hose clamp or hose itself, (not likely) if it's antifreeze, I should order the pump, o-ring and gasket, correct? Oil pump is ok? Not too bad for 101k miles, I can get an...

Thanks for that, lots of good stuff like I didn't know the NEW oil has to be drained. To be clear, it is antifreeze puddling, not oil. Does this make a difference as to the weep hole? I'm going to go...

Have E4's on my wing. They have about 5k on them now so I can comment on them. They are considerably better than the E3's. They have better grip, quieter, and, though this isn't published, they are a...

It took me about 3 hours as well. The best part about it was the education received on how this bike is put together. Quite different than the 1200's. Found some interesting things from the PO's as...

Safe to assume that they haven't been changed, it's a lot of work for a $3 filter that most people will just blow off. But it makes the bike happy, so why not?

When I had my 86, I had to change out the stator. The regulator lasted about a week after that. It took 3 attempts to get a working regulator-I only looked for OEM, not after market. That was enough...

Just looked, go to DennisKirk.com. They still show a pair of E3's on sale, about $240 for the pair. Don't wait too long, there aren't many E3's left and ask about the date codes before ordering. Not...

E4's defininitely better, and I think E3's are discontinued. However, you're biggest issue is going to be size. I don't know if they make a matched pair for an 1100. And that's going to be typical...

Got a pair of em. Unfortunately, I don't know the exact mileage on them as they were on when I bought the bike. The PO estimated 3k or less when I bought it. If so, then they have 5k on them now....
