Replaced the crown gear bearing on my 1100GS a couple days ago and just drained the gear lube tonight, after 150 miles, to check for metal shavings, looks good to go.

I think that subconsciously, I sabotaged my self on this sale. The fact that it didn't sell has given me the impetus to do a little work to it and get it running again just so that I can ride it.
