    Paul,

    Thanks for the data!

    I think you're correct - and I'll extrapolate that all the 1150 single sparks are the same. The one thing I don't really know yet is whether or not the Dual Sparks...

    On the bottom "spline" of the throttle body casting is a Bing part number that should start 75/45/???. The third number group should be in the low 100-110's. If...

    "Take" it off the center stand? About 1 in 15-20 times I'll ride it off the center stand. :nyah (Probably not good for the longevity of the stand, engine case, etc.)

    Sorry about that - my mistake in not keying on the R1100 specific nature of the question. But yes, you are correct in that the 1100 manuals do only specify SAE 90 weight oil.
