    2000 R1100RT Spline Lube

    A buddy (Jeff448) and I are planning to do a clutch spline lube on my 2000 R1100RT sometime in the next month.

    I'm looking for specific, step-by-step instructions for an R1100RT. I've found instructions for an R1150RT, but not an 1100.

    Thanks, Rich

    The 1100RT is the same as the 1150RT except it has a mechanical clutch. There is a very detailed video of the entire procedure done on an 1100RT. Search for it. PM me if you can't find it. ( It's too large to post or email. It's on a DVD, but very, very detailed and a must if this is your first spline lube. )

    Thanks, I'll look around for the video. This is my first oilhead spline lube, but Jeff's second - he did his R1150RT a couple of years ago. Last winter we did a spline lube on my K75S, but the oilhead is a little different.

    +1 on Awagnon's check list.

    A thoroughly useful gift to the MOA community. I hope to make use of it later this winter.

    Do a search for ......... pictorial.......... and you will find a thread I posted walking through the process, plus I included a bunch of other threads posted concerning the same procedure.
