If your not sure when last time it was adjusted best thing to do is to create a time that you do know. Just my 2cents about it.

Things to do

1100 motors need to get a valve adjustment at around 11-1500miles. Its real easy...you can do it on the bike. Just need a valve adjustment tool. Also alot of guys don't realize that the chain tensioner on the front of the motor needs to be pushed in. That will eliminate majority of the noise and increase the horsepower about 5-10 depending on how loose the chain is. You have to manually turn the motor back then push the chain tensioner in and rotate the motor at the same time...Hell of a difference in performance. :arsenal :thumbup:
