You are clearly new to the LT. This is how it goes:
1. You start a maintenance cycle on the LT, but always find that repairs are needed also.
2. You start at the bottom and work your way up as you didnít have time to wash your LT before winter suddenly set in so it isnít a clean as you would like. And dirt falls down, just like crap rolls downhill, so you want to work bottom up so you arenít dropping dirt onto places you have yet to work on.
3. You start a with the centerstand as it is not allowing clearance for the rear oil filter cover screw and you are tired of loosening the centerstand every time you change the filter. And you need the bike on the centerstand to rotate the rear tire to roll the engine over for the valve check.
4. You do the valves next as you likely will have to order parts, but you hope all is in spec still after 50,000 miles.
5. You find two valves out of spec and a few others on the borderline. So you order buckets which of course are not in stock and have to be special ordered.
6. While waiting on the buckets you decide to grease the FD pivot bushings (I had the RCRG JL bushings) as you heard some squeaking at the end of the last riding season.
7. You find the bushings are dry and worn beyond use and have spun their inner races on the aluminum pins ruining both.
8. You order new pins. They are not in stock and are special order. You also order new bearings from EME trying to save a few bucks over the $210 BMW bearings.
9. You get the buckets, bearings and pins. So you are good to go!
10. Not so fast sunshine, you find that the bearings are crap and have to remove them and send them back.
11. You think, no problem, I will just do the valves while I am waiting on the $210 gold plated BMW bearings. At least the bearings are in stock. One might think BMW sells a lot of these...
12. You start through the manual and pull the plugs so you can more easily rotate the engine into position for cam removal.
13. You then go to grab the rear wheel to roll the engine over and see the FD still laying on the lift.
So, what was that discussion about fuel lines?
