    Question Tech info on 1100 GS

    Just bought a '95 1100 GS w/793 mi! Denver dealer had it on consignment and had sold it new. I had given up bikes and gone to used Porsches for several years but lost my garage space and sold the last one this summer. I have a good collection of tools and did much of the mechanical work on the Porsches myself. I'm wondering if there are any good references (shop manuals, books, etc.) for the GS. Or maybe it'll never need work? Or maybe best left to the BMW mechanics? The manuals show the basics (wheel removal, etc.)

    I have a Haynes manual that's pretty good. I use it in conjunction with a factory BMW manual and a bunch of information available at in their tech pages.

    Also, if you go to, you can find a copy of OVAD, Oilhead Valve adjustment for Dummies. If you've worked on screw and locknut adjusters on your Porsches, this will be a snap for you. You won't need to pull the tires off and lay on your side while you're doing the adjustment.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
