Gregory Fraizer (google him) has done multiple solo RTW trips (6 I think). The only bike that did not break at all on his trips was a KLR 650. However, I think he took an old CX 500 a couple of times.

Keep it. You probably have another 100-200K coming without issues. Besides, what's a 110K 1150 worth anyway? You won't get much.

All the way to the top in a traffic jam in Acapulco in June 2 years ago. The engine was really making some noise about it. Stopped and cooled down. All good after.

I would say to just fill the tank with fuel and go. A 4000 mile trip is nothing for that bike. I did very little to my 01 before heading to Honduras two years ago, (7500 miles), and a 10K trip around...

It's not really a choke since all the lever does is open up the throttle a little. It doesn't richen the mixture or anything like that. It's just a throttle.
