1150 GS FD bearing removal questions

I'm pretty sure my '02 1150 GS Adv needs a new FD big bearing. Vibes and rough spinning rear wheel. 12 years and 60K miles will do that. Just glad it didn't grenade in the middle of no where!...

I'd go for the lighter and slimmer '09. I rarely fill up my ADV tank all the way, too much weight. But if you really do commute 120 miles each day then the big tank would be useful.

It all depends on your driving history, age etc. but the best I've been able to find is with State Farm. Last time I shopped around was 2 years ago. BTW that is the only policy I have with them.
