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

T.I.A.

you'll need the correct size/type oil filter wrench - the cap style
a long struggle will ensue without one

I was hoping to find a K&N with the nut on the end, but not available it seems

The rocker cover bolts chew up easy, originals are cheap, some tasty stainless items are out there.

Get Valpolini rocker cover gaskets. MG Cycles sells them. The original factory gaskets fail with depressing regularity.

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. Laughing 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)



Anything else?

Head Race bearings lowers are usually low on grease uppers not so much.

I once found such a filter in a Guzzi - the nut broke off, the fillter was still in place. Forget it.

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

Certainly large enough for a "day trip bike"
