The shorai battery Impressed me as it is a lithium and is not supposed to drop a charge over time of storage. Which is really not an issue here because I can ride every week anyway. But it is very very light and a drop in install.
Also started the bike ('11 GSA) well at 35 with 20/50 oil.

It was 35 there today? Ooooof, what am I getting myself into... I'll be there in a week to pick up my bike. I need to make sure I pack my long undies and my heated gear for this trip...

Cut in half 3 times my R1100GS '95

My bike has a M94 gearbox , and had the conical bearings in the imput shaft, so I found a recall from bmw that recomend to replace all bearings with clean or sealed ball bearings, so I look up for the and cut the bike in 2 halves open the gearbox and replace the bearings, but (there is always a "BUT")I made A mistake in the roller bearings from the intermediated shaft and had to split the bike again and change the wrong roller bearings, so the gearbox was like new and silent, but (again) after a month using it on the weekends , start to developing a problem with the clutch, so I consult JVB and explaind what was happening to the cluth and he answer me "no lubrication on the shaft splines" so I remove the starter to check the shaft and was rusty and also check the thickness of the clutch plate and was 4.8mm , apractically wrong out!! so I split the bike again!! and replace the clutch with a complet set that I bought at Beemerboneyard that works great, so in the las 2 and half months I have split the bike 3 times, so I have an almost new '95 R1100GS

PS thanks a lot to JVB and Mike from Beemerboneyard for all the help and atentions!!!

So That's what I have beem doing to my GS latelly !!!!!!

manuel...

sorry for my english in case of any mistake!!

^ it is the emergency pull-strap that activates an inflatable device in the event of a deep-water crossing.

100k mile rework.

Head gaskets, valve seals, rear main and transmission input, spline lube (splines are near perfect, BTW), driveshaft and final drive seal.

Big doings this week.

Yes, there will be.

I haven't run into any expensive surprises yet, but the job is just begun and there is plenty of time to bust a transmission case or score a piston. The transmission input/output splines are in excellent condition. They need to be cleaned, but there aren't any signs of wear that I can see. The driveshaft universals are well and truly thrashed, the rear is notchy in both planes and the front is floppy to the extreme. I knew the rear joint was bad in October when my final drive seal started weeping, so I bought a good one from the flea market. I'll send the old out to be reworked sometime next year.

My busted bolt count is 2.
One is in the left head, it seized and twisted off when I was removing my head guard. The other secures the alternator belt cover, that bolt rounded out and I had to drill the head off.
