In remarkably good visual shape....a big red, 1996 ST1100 with all of 6600 miles has now taken residence in my garage. Get running ...the usual stuff.... new battery, carbs/fuel system service, brake/clutch system bleeds, fluids, oil/filter.....to be followed by new tires. Get road worthy and able to pass NY State inspection the goal. Owner reports sitting about 2 years.

This morning saddlebags, seat, tank cover, battery, some access panels all removed, determining a coherent strategy of "attack" while building a list of service parts needed, coordinating with owner to get stuff on order ASAP. In the meantime, carburetor removal will be a priority. Deliberate, step by step progress. A miracle....NO stripped, overtightened hardware encountered to this point.
Adding coolant flush to the "to-do" service list. Meanwhile...too fiddy carb parts "in the drink". Busy on many fronts.

Finally some warmth here, breaking in to the nitty gritty on the ST....hopefully carb assembly in hand by end of day. As expected....very tight working conditions. Just 2 of 4 shown in the pic.
