    You must love it to do all this work. I know you have expanded my perspective on bike cleanup, and the projects I have been whining about now seem like nothing at all. Thanks!.

    My wife likes it because I don't sit at the computer so much. I like it because it is fun to me.

    Oh I could, but it takes a bit of paint!

    Jim, I think Omega Man will "gladly" pay you $5.00 to make his wheels look that good. Great thread, I look forward to seeing updates and live the pictures. I hope the bike runs half as well as it looks. Keep up the good work.

    nice price for the brake lines. are these for an ABS equipped R1100RS? I'm not sure if they all had ABS as I'm new to these bikes. thinking of replacing my old OEM rubber lines.

    Mine is a 94 RS and I have ABS. If you are riding an old oil head I would definitely replace the brake lines.

That being said I think I'm doing a pretty good job of maintaining the bike. It would be nice to keep the bike. I am hoping to see the "easy" replacement of the front fairing pictures. That still seems like asking for trouble.
    good luck with the front fairing. I wanted to check my battery and can't get the left side panel off as the screw that goes onto the tank won't back out, the piece molded into the tank is spinning. The only choices I see are cutting a slot in the fairing or cutting the screw.I'm going to try one more thing, outward pressure on the fairing and a small impact wrench.

    Hey Jim,

    On the fairing side panels, that very rearward capscrew that screws into the side edge of the tank at the very back - does it screw into a brass insert or just the tank plastic?

    Some photos from the seal change. I did it dropping the fork leg, since I had the wheel off, and from the top, just for fun.





















    Changed the brake lines too.




    Tomorrow the rear line and flush/bleed the brakes.

    Nice set of photos for the fork seals R&R.

    Youíve probably already tightened things up, but hereís a tip. While the fork bridge is still not torqued and before the wheel goes back in, run the axle into the front forks. When the axle gets to the left fork leg it should be lined up perfectly with the opening on the left side. If itís not lined up right, loosen the screws on the fork bridge and then insert the axle through the left leg. Now carefully tighten up the fork bridge and then retest the axle. It should now go across from the right leg to the left leg and go into the left side without any twisting or force. What youíre doing is making sure that the forks and front wheel are going together without any twisting of the forks.

    Thanks, and good advice. I did exactly that.

    Not really much done. Painted the wheels, cleaned and lubed the calipers and loosely reinstalled them, and mounted the wheels.
