I neglected to include the border router info

Before (BW equal)

A1(config-subif)#do sh ip ospf border-routers
OSPF Process 1 internal Routing Table
Codes: i - Intra-area route, I - Inter-area route

i 10.1.0.7 [65] via 10.43.1.73, Serial1/0.2, ABR/ASBR, Area 11, SPF 66
i 10.1.0.8 [65] via 10.43.1.61, Serial1/0.1, ABR/ASBR, Area 11, SPF 66

*******************************

After (s1/0.1 BW set to 512)

A1(config-subif)#do sh ip ospf border-routers
OSPF Process 1 internal Routing Table
Codes: i - Intra-area route, I - Inter-area route

i 10.1.0.7 [65] via 10.43.1.73, Serial1/0.2, ABR/ASBR, Area 11, SPF 67
i 10.1.0.8 [195] via 10.43.1.61, Serial1/0.1, ABR/ASBR, Area 11, SPF 67
