    Hi Jerry,

    I have a Cee Bailey on my Rt1100. The previous owner installed it so I don't know what model it is. I like it, but since it came with the bike, I don't have anything to compare it to.

    My 97 rt1100 usually starts on the first or second try. Sometimes, when I shift into neutral, the green neutral indicator doesn't immediately light, but if I blip the throttle it comes on.
