No need to open up the filter -- just blow through it. You'll probably know right away if there's too much restriction.

FWIW, there were 2 R1100S paralever arms. The standard R11S arm is 385mm. The Replika's, Prep's, and limiteds (like the yellow striped 99-00 and carbon-soaked Light models) came with the 365mm's. ...

Yeah, but stators do fry, regulator rectifiers go bad, and alternators do wear out. I was on three rides this year where someone's stator went bad. DRZ, FJR, and Speed Triple. WTH? Been riding 10...

Welcome to the club, T! The fur stuck in the hidden fairing cracks is a nice touch. Don't think I've ever seen cracks end up like that in the side fairings!

Rockster swingarm swap?

Looks to me like the Rockster swingarm is pretty much the same as the 11S aside from the lower shock mount being a rod-end bearing rather than a clevis.

Anyone know if these swap?
