BMWs are a PITA to work on

Getting the R1100RTP back together again, just wrestled with the fuel pump, filter, sender module. Tomorrow I'll find out if it leaks and works, check Tbody balance, change trans/FD oil and then (oh joy) wrestle with the fairings.

H/D may be old school and two decades out of date, but they sure are easier to fix

I feel your pain Brother. I have a R1200RT and the Tupperware needs to be removed for everything. I do all the maintenance in my bikes and so far the V-ROD has been the easiest.

AARGH
Got the tank on, installed fuel disconnects, balanced throttle bodies after making manometer

gear shifter came loose-got that fixed, scared me as I thought I lost first gear

changed engine, tranny and final drive oil.

In final check before installing fairings, noticed bike revved when going to right full lock, pulled throttle cable to get some slack from ty-wrap. now the d*mn thing revs when started

Off with the tank again. !^$%!#(*^&54t903

rerouted t-cable with multiple ty-wraps. I was too lazy to trace and remove the remainder of the police wiring. 24 screws and a lot of alignment issues later.

The Shipley's Scooter lives. Need to take it out tomorrow. There is nothing like getting stranded on Xmas.

Plenty of work space after H-D removes the horsepower and handling bits.

I just bought the shims to do a valve job on my GS1150. I am really hoping it stops the ticking because the quotes I have from shops are stupid $$$.
