Worked on the K1100RS last night and got the forks rebuilt (new seals, bushings and oil) and the fuel pump installed!

Rode it to work this morning! First ride on that bike in about two months. Felt pretty good.

The fork seals were a pain in the ass. It’s a bitch to get the clip-ring out. The first one was really hard until I figured out a way to do it. Then the second one was much faster.

The new seals went in really easily. I was pleased. (Hope they don’t leak.)

I downloaded a manual from Ohlins for the rear shock and I might tweak it a little and see if I can improve the handling without having to get it rebuilt. Hope so.

Overall I’m pretty happy that the K Bike is back on the road.
