I went and picked the bike up today. for all of you who said Hall sensor was the problem, give yourselfs a GOLD star. for those of you who don't have a clue what I'm talking about, here's an update... last friday my 99R1100RT wouldn't start. took it to the shop Tuesday and got it back today. FYI it cost $ 510.20 they charged me 2 1/2 Hrs labor. it would have taken me 2 1/2 days
