Who was it that did their 1100 in Ferrari red and put Ferrari decals on it? I thought that looked smart and a right ice breaker.

Hi Mauricio! I was wondering the other day how you might be getting on with the ST.

Hi Mauricio. Hope the VRR I sent you is still working.

Whit Brown of Golden, CO, put Ferrari badges and stickers on two or three ST1100s.

Regards, John

Yeah Whit had 3 STs all '93s and all with Ferrari decals on the top shelter. I think it was Fred Ziglar however, that first did it, calling his ST "Special Testarosa".

Gosh, I'm not sure if I can bump a thread this old but I might as well give it a try. I see there are a bunch of replies which I never commented and that might sound rude on my part. I still own my temperamental ST. At this rate I think my relationship with this bike will outlast my wife, specially now that it seems the old my-mc posts made it to this forum (or at least in part). Also, and believe it or not, my ST is less "high maintenance" than wifey...

John's VRR worked perfectly well until a couple of months ago. Nowadays I'm getting what I think are overcharging issues. Charging voltage was always in the mid 14's while cruising. Now I'm getting mid 15's. Never been to 16 although I have seen 15.9 once or twice. No ill effects yet. Battery is running fine and no blown bulbs or fuses. Fingers crossed.

I have been struggling in the past year with engine issues. In the beginning on rare ocasions the bike wouldn't start when hot. It became more and more frequent and I finally discovered fuel boiling in carbs. In the meantime, the bike was fouling plugs, specially #3. I now have the carbs off and am trying to cut out a new rubber mat using a stencil I found on the web. The old mat is in dire conditions.

Current plan is to replace the OEM mat with a thicker rubber mat (hope it fits). While carbs are out I will close pilot screws to 1 and 3/4 turns out except #3 which will go to 1.5 turns. Had them at 2 and 1/4 out and plugs were definitely fouled. I may also lower floats to around 8mm instead of the 7mm default. Mind you, I'm still running this thing at 8400 ft above sea level.

Will keep you posted.

Cheers and Merry Chrsitmas to all.

You may want to occasionally look at the "Battery Voltage" thread in our ST1100 forum. One of our members is determined to beat the same problem you described, and we are looking for techniques that are a bit more scientific than crossing ones fingers.

Both the adhesive "decals" and the rubber engine mat should be available through Honda although the decals will have to be matched to a colour such as "pure red - pearl".
One person, Norm Keller of Canada, who helped you with your voltage regulator (or VRR) seems regrettably to have chosen not to post here any more. (He owns a 1994 ABS model that is just like your 1993.)
The term "Key-in-Pocket" or KiP voltage which you introduced has been reinstated in one of my ST1100 threads here.

Hey David.

I appreciate your reply to my last post almost a year old. Charging system is still running strong and voltage readings have come down a bit as I ride the bike more often. Still see over 15V from time to time.

I traced the no start issue to a clamped carb venting hose that was re routed at the carbs some six years ago upon removal of the PAIR system. It was badly pinched between the air filter base and the frame. I disconnected the tube and left the carbs venting to the atmosphere under the filter. Bike has started fine ever since, hot or cold.

Thanks for the credit for the KiP acronym. I'm amazed at your ability to trace the thing to me. I had totally forgotten this.

Cheers!

Correction: I think Norm actually signed off when this was still Steinar Fremme's last my-mc site; that happened well after Mauricio's ST1100A had been discussed.

We are trying to not lose anything related to a Pan/ST1100 that anyone posted on any Steinar Fremme site. For example, Norm posted lots of useful info for Steinar's sites; some of it has not been re-posted here.
