    Is my bike normal???

    I know no "head" bearings, but I always try to feel play by pushing the front tire to the rear and front to detect "play".

    no more sight glass paranoia

    OK, so how does one get the old sight glass out?
    Is it plastic so I can drill a hole and tap it for a slide hammer?

    The police box was removed before I got the bike and a rear seat installed.

    Yet Another Clutch/Transmission Question

    I too bought an R1100RTP.
    The splines were completely ripped out of my clutch friction disk.
    New disk, acid brush with moly lube and good times are here.
    Its really an easy job.
