Did you mean that you change the oil in FD when you replace the tire?
You can't be possibly changing the FD every 5K mi...
You were 2/3 there so it would've been a good opportunity to do it as you were changing FD oil...
Oh well, your labor is free so you'll do it some other time...
It was serviced by PO prior to its hibernation so it should be fine until i hange tires
No worries - not that many owners do lube the splines and, since splines are prone to rust, it's good to inspect/lube splines sooner rather than later...
Should have said the prior owner had the dealer service it.
Lubing splines isn't part of regular maintenance intervals so one extra reason to get to them sooner rather than later - ymmv...
I'm not sure if this is of interest to anyone but I have had to replace one of the fuel quick disconnects on my R1150r. I have looked into replacing them with metal connectors but couldn't justify the price. Anyway I found LPG connectors on fleabay for less than €8 a pair. They seem to work fine and the plastic cover fits over them.
I have also worked out if you need to replace a brake light switch, and the ABS on(off) isn't an issue. You can fit a hydraulic switch meant for a Suzuki 10mm X 1. This one was about 5mm too long so I cut it and dressed up the end with a grinder and a thread file. It cost around €6 or €7 on fleabay but I have seen them on amazonn
After reading some of the debate about yellow vs. other spring suspension, I’m ready to dive in to the yellow kool aide.
Where are you getting Ohlins for a 2009 R1200r?
Debate? There's no debate about it - yellow springs (and shocks) FTW...
You could've read actual testimonials even from those demoing 2 otherwise identical bikes, back-to-back, one w yellow Ohlins and one w KLR silver springs - difference was night-and-day...
One of the sources for Ohlins: Ohlins, Pro Pilot Ohlins Suspension, Ohlins Wholesale and Retail Supplier, Service and parts, WP, MX, Gncc, Showa , KYB Pro Pilot Suspension, Ohlins , Suspension, WP, KYB, Showa, Ktech, Elka, Fox , Shocks, Parts, Service WP, MX, Gncc, Showa , KYB
Suggest you reverse one of your connectors (end to end) to avoid misconnection the next time you remove and install your tank.
Thanks! I’ll look into Pro Pilot…Ohlins USA no longer lists my ‘old’ steed.
2002 R1150R input shaft question.
I picked up a '02 R1150R a couple months ago with 36k on the clock. After reading about all the input shaft problems . my question is. Does anybody know what % of the 1150r have this problem?
Looks like some do , some [most???] don't .
I had a 2000 R1100RT which has the same transmission as the 1150
At 100,000 miles the input shaft was looking good. @ 136,000 there were almost no splines left, as in paper thin,
I have pictures of both.
SO since my bike was purchased used, the first 100,000 miles were easy on the splines.
If you want to spend at least 8 hours working on your bike, go for it.
I figured that out too. I was going to put a little paint on one line to avoid confusion but I fitted the lower clamps with the screw under the clamp and the upper one with the screw over. Only the female connector has a cutoff so they have to be that way round.
any link to those?
