I disagree with Lowndes. If you don't have ABS then it is much less work to hinge up the rear subframe on the upper mounting bolts. It saves time leaving the all the electric wiring in place.

Dana-

This might be a better pic of the stand.

BMWR502's thread is great. the "dr. splinelube" procedure also takes off the frame and swingarm as one unit:

Dr. Splinelube

GSAddict is cele0001 here. if you read about the causes of spline failure you may or may not decide his spacer is worth it to you. i expect to have to break the bike in half for something else before the splines go so i didn't add one

Darkonaut, I am surprised you found Repoe3's old thread. His bike is currently in Colorado somewhere. he sold it a year or so ago.

You can do it either way. I have only done it five time so I am not an expert. Since I work alone, having more small pieces makes it easier to put back together. Trying to get the frame-swingarm unit aligned and back on can be tough. With the frame up you already have two mounting points and just hinge it down into place.

Thanks for the thread links, guys.

Rain expected Sunday here. Good day to prepare some space in the garage, and move the bike into position for the tear down.

"I disagree with Lowndes. If you don't have ABS then it is much less work to hinge up the rear subframe on the upper mounting bolts. It saves time leaving the all the electric wiring in place."

Hey, RBMann,

I did mine the hard way, piece by piece starting at the license plate. Well, not quite. But I wouldn't recommend that way, it was a lot of bits to keep track of, lots of head scratching on re-assembly. I did want to re-do and inspect the para-lever bearings and re-torque them per Chris Harris (10-12NM??), plus I was considering replacing the pinion seal but demurred on that.

Question - in your pic, where did the swing arm go?? The "side swing" that Chris Harris showed still had the tranny-frame-swingarm-wheel together. Is the "up-swing" vs. "side-swing" dependent on the ABS piping?? Just asking in case I gotta go back in one day.

The swing arm comes off before you hinge up.

I am pretty sure you need to remove the sub-frame because the ABS hardline to the pump won't let you hinge up.

I usually remove the swing arm its just easier to put it back together and get
the splines snapped on with it apart. and synced.
and tip the frame up.

Got the operating theater set up this morning. Next step: building an RBMann-style stand.

Stand mocked up. Waiting for my partner to get back from Cape May with the drill, so I can screw it together.

Dana, if you don't have a manual then just check off these steps as you go.

Thanks twitchy. I've downloaded it.

No Clymer manual for this model, it seems, from my googling.

RBMann, re the pages you scanned:

I wasn't planning to disassemble the driveshaft and final drive, but rather, was planning to disconnect and swing the driveline (from the transmission back to the rear wheel) out to the right, a la Chris Harris' video here:

https://youtu.be/-PdVvxMwz_A

That's doable for the R1100S, correct?
