I've compiled the pictures I took while doing work on my bike last weekend. I've got three more to write, perhaps tonight if I get some time.

i am sure that this will help some of the members here who would like to get into maintaining their bike but maybe not quite sure what to do. There are so many people that give thier time to help others on here, its part of what makes this website so good, well done.

Good right up. One thing i prefer to do I might add iswhen removing the bearing retainer is to use a real small drill bit 1/8 3/16 or so and drill the factory stake punchs out not much just a little and that makes the retainer come offf easier. JB

That's a good idea. Mine hadn't been punched very deep, and it came off fairly easily.

Thanks for sharing your talent and experience. I know I will be able to use some of these articles for my 1200.

That's one thing that has me wondering a bit about the layout I've got - although what I'm doing is obviously for the 1100 because that's what I have, a lot of it is applicable to other bikes as well - but it doesn't show up that way now.

Does anyone know how I can get a 4way switch.
I've tried all the sprays. Didn't work. I just need a switch so I can soldier it into my current system.
Link, price or advise is welcomed.
Thanks

What's a 4way switch? Do I have one? If you are trying to clean the innards of a switch by spraying the outside, the odds are against you. disassemble, spray, scrub, clean, reassemble, test.

Bringing up old threads and adding unrelated info or questions is ........many things to many people, not good things.
