Check the clutch as well?
There has been a lot of discussion about greasing the tranny input splines, all the way back to my first dry clutch thumper. What I haven't seen is a lot of discussion about popping the clutch apart and having a look to make sure you have good clutch friction material left or you haven't heat checked the mating surfaces.
I have to rip my tranny down, since I'm there, I will tear the clutch apart and have a boo. If I see my rear engine seal has seen better days, I will horse it out as well.
If it's a matter that you need the tools, I will send them to you if you pay the postage. I make my own tools and if you have them and share with others that need them and they don't get returned, I will make more. Mine are specific to R1100's but I can make them to fit yours if R1150's are different sizes.
Should just add that "rip, tear, horse, pop and boo" are my terms and do not reflect the "gentlemen/gentlewoman" that some perceive Beemer owners are. I also don't have a spreadsheet to show you how ripping, tearing, popping or horsing the clutch out to have a good look will increase your fuel economy or make your bike start a half second better.
Very well written and truly an opinion greatly appreciated.
[QUOTE=rdhudson;906379]So..oo.. does that mean Dieselyoda is the yang to Roger 04 RT's yin? I gotta say we appreciate you both.
Weather the winter well, wrench lots, tip a Molson by the fire for us all.
It does take all kinds to make a community doesn't it? Life would kinda suck if we all rode RT's and we couldn't make fun of those that ride Bricklets.
Some pretty damn good comments rdhudson. Winter starts in a few hours with two inches of snow already and another six expected by afternoon. I got 6 bikes to pretend I know what I'm doing with this winter and see if I can make them run again, 2 are mine. I have 4 cords of firewood ready for the shop and friends that know my interest only lasts as long as my beer.
