I havent properly taken care of the beast, well i've done my best
I've checked da book; and is says to inspect everything you can, i already off the top of my head know whats up.. check
Im looking into having an experienced friend take care of replacing my fork oil and showing me how.
Im going to replace my clutch tomorrow with the energy-one clutch. Which at first sight of the kit i already really like because they use 8friction plates by replacing the one narrow friction plate with a normal. Good Idea WTF do i need a narrow plate for in the first place? G-Wiz
my question is to the steering head:
I want to remove the forks from the triple tree, remove the tree, inspect the bearings and seats, and put it back together.
When I was at MMI this was standard stuff, but there is a twist with buells..
Buell's have hollow frames; so this would lead me to suspect that once removing the tree from the frame, my gas tank would be exposed?
or is this a sealed system, ie its a sealed system and i dont have to worry about gas leakage once removing the tree's shaft?

The steering head and frame hollows are a separate section on the XB ,1125 and 1190 frames
It,s also some kind of safety design

All is good with the service; steering head bearings are good, front wheel play is nil, turning left to right is good, check. tightened it up and my clicking went away. put the clutch in, works great.
My neutral sensor is loose, and i cannot find a socket for it..
the problem is that the outter diameter of my socket is hitting the the inner walls of the recesss that the neutral sensor is placed in, so i cannot torque it
has anyone got a tool for this that I can FIND somewhere?

Don't need to worry about gas leakage.
