Re: R1150 Throttle Butterfly Angle using GS-911

Most of the activity on this site is geared toward airheads, even though some of us have newer Oilheads and such. I am attaching a link to a site that has free manuals to download, I have found these very good for providing information for working on my oilhead. https://www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle...

Re: Getting a grip

I was there too, looks like an information link, see the link to dealers.
Did find many hits with others lookng for old stock on these grips, I figure the bushes have been beat for any NOS items.

36k is nothing, as Kurt asked what are the symptoms that caused you to bring to a shop in first place.

Another thing that contributes to noise is the rocker side to side clearance, not sure of the spec. Loosen the ends and take up some of the excess play, keeping the rocker centered over the valve. Torque the head to specs and readjust valves.
