Hey my name is Chris and I just got on this site. I have an '06 1100 cc that seems to be running really hot to me, it has some bluing on the exhaust which was there when I bought it 2 months ago. I called the local shop to find out about having the carburetors sinked and adjusting the fuel air mix and he said it would be right around $500. So it looks like this is going to be a do-it-yourself job haha does anyone have any recommendations

Hi Chris and welcome. 

As Mick said, the KB is a real great resource. Save $$, the pride of DIY. As for synching the carbs, my go to was the Snapple bottles, corks, tubing and brake lines. Easy, reliable method that basically uses fluid dynamics and pressure differentials. I left the tubings attached to the intake manifold nipples to make the annual synching an easy job. Cheers
