Maintenance Day

Performed a valve adjustment, throttle body sync and paralever bearing adjustment on my Y2K 1150GS according to procedures found here on ADVrider.

Also changed the oil & filter.

Cheers

Picked up a '97 1100GS a couple weeks ago.

Here's a picture arriving home back in Maine after the 280-mile ride back from NY the day I bought it.



And here's what I've done to it so far . . . not all today.
  • adjusted valves
  • adjusted rocker arm axial play
  • replaced spark plugs
  • replaced air filter element
  • replaced fuel filter
  • replaced alternator belt
  • adjusted choke & throttle cables
  • cleaned big brass screws
  • synched throttle bodies
  • changed engine oil & filter
  • changed final drive oil
  • lubed lower front shock mount
  • lubed side stand & center stand
  • checked / tightened all nuts, bolts & screws
  • hardwired GPS
  • added rider and passenger heated gear harnesses
  • added SW-Motech crashbars
  • added Touratech hard parts
  • added Touratech oil cooler protection
  • added Aeroflow Headlight Protector
  • added Hepco & Becker side bags and top case
Still got a few more things to do . . .

. . . right now I'm in need of a couple short rear turn signal stems if anyone knows where to buy them.

Changed the spark plugs on the dual spark 1150GSA. I bought the bike last summer with 54k miles (now over 60k miles). Looks like the secondary spark plugs were original (fouled). Primaries looked okay. Runs better with new plugs, or perhaps I just think it does.

Tow truck picked her up and hauled her away. Insurance write-off. Awaiting for a sensible company to come out with a sensibly priced 400lb. shaft drive Adv bike. Sold my 01 Jeep TJ 2 weeks ago. I feel a new JK is in my future waiting for that dream bike. At least I still have my 01 DRZ400S. See yah.

I bought a bigger bag to hold my sleeping bag, pad, tent, and hammock in the same container. May have went over board on size, but what the hell.

I also bought a dromedary bag for desert camping. Eliminating my cheaper water containers.

Replaced the stock skid plate with the larger TT variety. Also installed a flux capacitor. Can't wait to get this baby to 88.

Looks great! One word of caution. If you plan to take it offroad, remove the possum scraper. The knobbies will eventually rip it off. My extenda fender was ripped off, too from my TKC's.
