    2010. I spun the rear tire on the centerstand and it felt fine.

    bike has been off road since Octber 2016. Been up on center stand since Feb 2017 when I last worked on it. Today got the coolant changed, replaced the oil in the rear adjuster, fitted new left side engine guard and went to bleed the clutch. Checked the free play and I had an inch of free play before there was any resistance, oops! Removed the clutch lever and bushing or more correctly what was left of the bushing. Very badly worn, looked like it had never been checked in the bikes 67K miles. Ordered new lever, bushing, rod, boot, clutch screw and bolt from partzilla.

    I am installing an audiovox cruise control. Not in the way you would think, using the instructions but coming up with my own way and it's going very well. Should know by tomorrow if it's going to work, have electrical connections to go.

    Pulled the rear wheel and checked/lubed splines, cleaned/lubed rear caliper pins Seems all good and ready for another season.

    Changed the headstock bearings for tapered on the 1100 a few weeks ago - and the steering is much better. Today I've fitted Hagon fork springs with fresh fork oil. Static sag is now 32mm (was 54mm). Can't wait to do a decent test ride....

    Hi Roger. Can you elaborate on this? What do you mean by 'better'? Were the old bearings shot?

    Too much white... must fill in

    Paulch,
    I expected the old bearings to have a few dimples, but that wasn't the case. All I had were marks for about a third of the circumference on the uppermost race and some damaged balls. Once I seated and adjusted the tapered bearings properly (don't ask), the 'bars swing side to side really smoothly. Rolling into bends, I have confidence that the bike is going where I want. It doesn't follow joints and white lines like it used to as well, but that may be down to a slight difference in pre-load......

    I didn't do anything with my STeed, but wished it was on the other side of the garage door with the broken spring.
    1 drop in reverse, so is that a minus 1? 205/50-17 Goodyear TripleTred, 130/70-18 Bridgestone BT-45 (rear)
