Greetings all: Recently acquired an `07 1100 (16Kmiles) and will be trying to establish a maintenance baseline and stock some spare "bits"
Will be removing valve covers for lash check, appears I will only need gasket #976139 I don`t see any o-rings or secret seals. Is this correct ?
Like to have parts in stock I have filters , wheel bearings , spark plugs , alternator belt, brake pads and other consumables OTW
Anything I`m missing ?
Any little hard to get, failure prone "flurbitz" that I should have on hand ?
At least here in US , many items are not on the vendors shelves
Thanks all for the comments. I just got my '07 1100 a few weeks ago (with only 9k miles), and will be establishing a "baseline" of maintenance for it. If there is a sticky that has this listed out please let me know if i missed it. So far, I believe there are the following (and the fork seals were already replaced):
oil and filter change CARC gear oil change Tranny gear oil change Check valve clearances Change both outer and inner spark plugs on both sides grease swingarm and shock linkage bearings Possible: Head Race bearings lowers may be low on grease (uppers not so much)

Any chance we could see a pic of the Saddleman installed, and your thoughts on it?
No pic ability at this time
Thoughts: Saddlemen products seem well made for the price point ( I have a different model on my other bike) and have multiple attachment options.
Keep in mind, my bike has the O.E. luggage rack which allows the use of larger (longer) bag I tied the front D rings to the passenger peg mounts and the rear rings to the rack using the straps provided May change the rears to mondo size cable ties later
It`s stable ( tunnel design hugs the seat) and is low enough that no gymnastics are required for getting on /off Exterior pockets for the small stuff are easily accessible (phone /glasses /wallet ) Main compartment is large enough for my mesh jacket/ gloves/ jeans etc. but my leather jacket will have to be a roll on top of bag Have yet to arrive at and fit a tool pouch
