Hey guys, I have been doing a little maintenance on the old 1100, and after installing new timing belts (original belts were still on the bike!:shock:) and adjusting the valves, I checked the carb synch. Everything is good, and I have no complaints with the way the bike runs. Idles nicely at 1000 rpm. I have been into the carbs when I first got the bike, but never messed with the idle jets. I have read that adjustment is supposed to start at 3 turns out on the 82 model. My question is 2-part. 1, should I worry with checking them? I'm averaging 42-43mpg after the neon coil upgrade. and 2, how do you adjust the darn things with the carbs on the bike? I'm sure I am just missing something, but it looks like they are pretty tough to get to, especially the two front cylinders.
Thanks for all the great advice!

You don't have any driveability issues, you get 44 mpg, and it idles nicely.
Why screw with a good thing? (See what I did there? Screw...)

That was kinda my way of thinking too... then again, I felt that way about the timing belts until I started reading up on it! I think I will leave these alone though.
Thanks for the input!
