Great Vid by the way!
Good catch, thanks. Maybe i'll wrap 'em with squishy.

You were right about that rear rotor. What is the replacement that you used?

Try the rotor off the 950se. Perfect bolt up and a much better rotor.

Steven--

Thanks for your reply. I see that you also have a 2002 1150 GS. Swede7000 is a little closer than you, but maybe I'll run down to you at some point before I leave to do a little more fine tuning and chat about the ins and outs of these '02 1150 GSAs.

Thanks for your offer--and yes, clearly your wife and kids (wow...) are off limits.

It's also good to see another 11/24er...

Take care,

Mike

I don't need any work done on my stuff either, but you're welcome to my tools (including a homemade manometer), etc. Basically, only my wife is off-limits.

PM me if you're interested.

No problem. Call or PM anytime--I'm usually around and my work schedule is pretty flexible.

Also, I have some manuals and repair/maintenance videos on DVD for that bike if you're interested.

Yeah, that's very similar to my kid hauling set up. Just something a little different,
can't quite put my finger on it.

What The Fcuk is that about? I've never had a front deteriorate...make that disintegrate like that....makes you believe in shaft drives and splines...and rebuilding your rims after every ride....
