Expensive?   I used to think so, then I got a little jaded.  I just spent the weekend in an MSF class held at a Harley dealership.  I think they had T-shirts that cost more.

It is unbelievably comforting to know that I'm not the only one making dumb mistakes and overlooking obvious stuff.

And the winner is... (drum roll, please)... bizarro!

Of course it was the bolt at end of the fork slider (part no. 27)!  Upon re-reading my Clymers Manual (and after correctly doing this process last year) I'm embarrassed at my mistake!  With bolt out, a few quick pulls on fork tube/slider and the fork tube popped right out.

The good news is that she'll be back up and running by tomorrow night or Wednesday night at the latest!

Thanks for the assist(s).

I bought a 6mm Allen bolt 80mm long 30mm of thread from a bolt supply place...

Thanx Martin, I'll give that a try

Johnny, bike will not start with o2 sensor disconnected.  Will start with it connected then dies when you unscrew the connector.  Any more ideas?

The Motobrick Workshop / 87 K100 Steering head bearings

Hello,
Curious if anyone could help me out with installation of steering head bearings. The clymer manual is a bit vague and I would like to make sure I get it right. What I need to know is whether the races that press into the frame sit flush with the frame or if they need to bottom out.

If the hardware store doesn't have the 6mm screw you could always get a square nut and a 12-24 machine screw in stainless with a Phillips head.  That will be pretty close to the 6mm that was there originally.
