    '01 R1100S Front Frame

    I need to replace the Front Frame on an '01 R 1100 S. My Clymer manual doesn't cover that particular item. Before starting I'd like to have some idea of what is ahead. Does anyone have experience and can anyone aim me to a pdf or an article describing same? tia jack in burien

    Can you be a bit more specific? Front frame as where the upper triple clamp is? Front frame as in the telelever A-arm?

    Front Frame that holds the top of the front shock. Sorry I wasn't more specific. j

    Be aware that you are swapping the part which carries the VIN #.

    I haven't done this on an S, but here are some pointers based on my dealing with my RS:

    Gas tank will need to be removed, probably the fairing as well

    Remove the top triple clamp which is really more of a double clamp with a ball joint mount in the center.

    Unbolt / unclip everything that is attached to the frame. i.e. brake lines, wire harness

    You may be able to leave the front subframe for the fairing & gauges in place and work around it or it may need to be removed - not sure.

    This could be a good time to remove the ball joint from the frame if you are reusing it.

    unbolt the shock from the frame

    unbolt the frame from the engine

    remove the frame
