I got the bike about a year ago and can not fix the idle/air/fuel ratio or at least i think that's the problem...it takes forever to start 1st time everyday and doesn't run like it should...ive been told replace wiring harness and would fix but idkany suggestions?

The usual problem with the gen1's is the recetifier/regulator runs super-hot and damages the connector and nearby wiring- that may be the harness issue mentioned. The fix is either relocate the rectifier more into the airstream or replace it with a unit that runs cooler. Mounting a fan to blow on it has been mentioned- that might work too. Hard start and bad running sounds like plugged jet or sticky bits in the carbs, vacuum leak maybe also...

Theres a black knob for idle adjustment on side of bike. Sticks out below tank behind mid fairing. If idle is a problem I might get bike started, warm and try adjusting the idle speed.
