    1) I had a car pull over while I was speeding to work at 6AM on my 2002 R1150-RTP. I thought that was funny since the police lights are disabled. I was only going 70-80MPH on a highway posted for...

    Even though I moslty ride on the same highway roads everyday [commuting M-F ], I wave to scooters, mopeds, trikes and all motorcycles. I like it. I have fun waving. The reactions of other riders are...

    Thanks Paul the axle goes in and comes out without much effort. The wheel bearings have over 43K on them since I am the third owner. Not sure how long they last.

    Thanks I figured out how to adjust my valves after watching a few videos.

    I still think I have to use a throttle body sync thing. I got the idle down to 2000, but it is still high.

    Thank you very much Doug.

    I got the sub frame back on after hanging the bike from my 300lb werner ladder. It didn't kill me. But, I thought it would :-)

    Hopefully, the break lines go on the...

    Actually, the first two long engine mount screws were easy. But, lining up the frame for the bolts that come after this is turning out to be insanely hard.

    Your statements make me wonder where my 10mm hexnuts for the battery box are.

    I guess I will start by taping on the nuts, so I don't have to mess around too much after the motor is squeezed in...

    Well I have half the job done. I invited my brother down to visit and he helped me removed the motor in about 8 hours of work with two people.

    Thanks Paul. I have both of those books. I read there are specialty tools for the RT. Do I need these to get the motor off ?

    Also, what is a good way to secure the front end ?
  19. kind of catastrophic failure: 2002 R1150 RTP 82K

    So I read it is rare for a chain tentioner to fail, but I had mine fail. Since I rode it for 30 miles on one cylinder at 50MPH, I am assuming I have more problems than just a derailed cam chain and...
