Looks good.You ride a lot so not relevant to you, but some service jobs like brake fluid changes are done on a time basis rather than miles - maybe the fork oil change as well?I do a similar thing with my bikes but because I do a lot less miles I also do a 1000 mile check of things like nuts and bolts and tyre pressures (or monthly).andyB
Thanks Huzo... Cut and pasted. Searching for fluids and parts now. Staying with the previous original owners Redline 10-68 since Hi-Ho SIlver already has 48,000+ miles of smile on her.
Fork oil change.Balance TB’s and check for DTC’sAlternator belt check/replace..(easy when the forks are out for changing fluid)Fuel filterHeadstem bearings grease adjust.Drive splines clean/grease.
Huzo, are you into making videos/taking pictures while you do the above tasks?I am stressing out about removing the tank, I can't imagine removing the forks.
Huzo, greatly enjoy and appreciate your write ups on the Norge. I have a '09 2v that I just finished servicing ( alt. belt, inner plugs, throttle body cleaning fluids ect). My charging voltage has always been a bit low for my liking ( around 13.6 to 13.7 at the battery). With the air box out, I checked and cleaned the ring connector on the out put wire on the alternator ( it was clean and tight). I then paralleled an additional conductor directly to the battery (through a fuse block). The results are I now have 14.2v at the battery. The original circuit from the alternator to the battery has several connections (as you well know) that adds resistance to the circuit. This turned into a worth while experiment. Anyway, thanks again for your posts and looking forward to your 300k report.
I probably need to remove my dash and clean the connectors. My on board voltmeter reads about .6v lower than my multimeter at the battery. What do you think?
To get the forks out..
Now, the tank…
I cannot see how anything relevant can be missed if this schedule is adhered to, but let’s know if y’all have spotted something.
Thanks for your patience, Huzo.I am not used to working on newer bikes, so I don't go for the service manual right away.After reading your posts it dawned on me that this might be documented.Lo and behold, with the Norge we have pictures... in color!!!So, I studied the pictures in the manual and compared to your instructions.One thing I am not clear on is how the forks are aligned. Here are some questions:I see they insert the wheel pin, but how do I know the two stems are exactly the same length from the top? Does the pin really enforce that?Next, what sets the length of the two stems from the top?Do I need to mark with tape before removing, or is there a stop washer at the top? I don't see it in the parts manual, nor a mention in the service manual.The tank removal is a bit vague in the manual. I appreciate your instructions for the fuel connector. Hopefully I will not break it.I found a replacement from MGCycle, but it is now sold out (MG410 Fuel Line Connection Elbow).
Are you intentionally skipping cleaning throttle bodies?
