The End

tjs' trick worked. Ragged and zip-tied it to the bar for a couple days, and clutch action is fine now, no pulling with the clutch lever in. Engine sounds fine. I'll have to take it for a shakedown run, spin it the eff up and see if anything in the driveline detonates.

So, thoughts after doing this for the first time:

- Previously I've changed fluids and the odd sensor or two, mounted system cases, stuff like that, but never dug in this deep into a bike.

- I found that I really enjoyed working with the torque wrenches. The Home Depot Husky brand inch-pound unit was great for the small stuff, and the 20-110 ft.-lb. unit good for the rest. For many of the fasteners, the manual's torque settings were in fact lighter than what I would have guessed, had I been doing it by hand feel. So I guess I learned something about fasteners and threads, and that my natural instinct is to overtorque.

- Hoses: meh. Not much fun.

- What was the total spend? From the 4/15/17 tow truck to the 6/2/18 parts run to Montgomeryville Cycle: just under $3,100.00 in parts, supplies and necessary tools. A couple of jobs I postponed, to do in the upcoming winter off-season: fuel line quick disconnects; replacement brake hoses.

- I no longer trust the bike, of course. It'll have to earn back my trust, on progressively longer rides.

- Thanks again to everyone here for advice and support. See you on the road.

Took me about a week or two to trust the bike, first time I tore it down to the studs. Second time, only took me a few days to lose the anxiety. Donít worry, youíll stop tiptoeing around her in no time.

Congratulations! Job super well done!

ETA: Cush drive
I'm a new R1100S owner, and got curious about this (since I've seen the cush bumpers in various chain bikes in my past). I don't see anything obvious in the Clymer manual pictures, but the driveshaft (#28 at page 523) does have a two-concentric-shafts thing going on. Is the damper in the larger shell, and set to let the thinner part of the shaft rotate a little bit? Is it a disassemble-able part, or you have to replace the whole thing? (I don't need one yet, just wondering.)

The smaller piece fits into the larger piece and they're glued together with rubber. The rubber and / or glue occasionally shear and the big piece will spin but the small piece won't. It's a stupid design.

Well, at least I don't hear about that failing as much as the splines! Anyway, thanks for the info!
