Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I would like to come down if that is OK.

I need to learn as much as I can.

Would love to get in line with a Brake Flush with someone who has done it.

I have a lift, but it is in a carport so no help in the Winter.

Anyway look forward to information/directions and meeting all.

Hey Lou
that sounds like a great time, unfortunately and happily my daughter is getting married on the 21st. ( If you decide to do it again I would really like to participate.
Hey Lee, we are practically neighbors. We should hook up when things warm up. There are some real nice roads up here in perry county.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Thank you for the invite. Anytime.

I do ride all year and with my gear, I am OK in the 20's if I have an excuse.

Rode to work yesterday and today to get my cross wind certification

I am up to it anytime any temp with anyone crazy enough to ride

I may even be able to drag Tracus out on his RT, he is a sick puppy also

Yep don't take me long to find mountain twisties. Love this area.

On Topic:

I will take pics and share with anyone who wants them.

One thing I learned was a Picture truly is worth a thousand words when it comes to taking apart and putting together.

Also 3 color paint pens to mark the Tupperware holes, small/medium/large, white/green/red in my case, and green/white for a few odd ones. Makes going on a breeze. Also helps marking frame/wire locations where wire ties go to keep it close to factory so everything fits back correctly.

Just tips from here that I used, and it makes things pretty easy and neat.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Looks like we have enough interest. So I will plan on the day for some more fun. Dave can you post the list of parts that Pete will need to have for his 48000 mile service. I know of the plugs, oil, filter, air filter, gear oil. Can you post the rest. Also I only have one lift but we could work on more than one bike. My garage is heated in case it is to cold and have enough room inside for at least 2 bikes.
Thanks

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I'll put in for this as a tentative - will need to see how my schedule plays out between now and then. Will probably make it an overnight and stay up around the water gap area and do some camping, but we'll see how the weather is too....

What is your zip code? Mapquest shows 2 Easton, PA locations. One is 130 miles from my house and the other is 370. Big difference!

Lou,
I was there last time (brought some doe nutz 2).
It always helps to see it twice.

Lee,
I'm not a big fan of wind, rain and motorcycles but if it's a half way decent day, maybe we could ride out to Lou's.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

OK guys, I'm starting to get pumped up for this tech session.

It is possible that I will already have the oil change and the trans oil change completed before the session. I figure that those are pretty routine items (even I can figure out that procedure) and will give us more time to do the more intricate stuff. I may try to also tackle the FD oil change, but looking @ that procedure scares me a bit, so we might leave that one to the session.

I have 75W90 synthetic GL-5 gear oil for the FD, and 75W140 Synthetic (also GL-5) for the trans. Anyone have problems with that? It seems that lubricants are quite the religious topic here, unlike the V-Rod boys.

Thanks again, I look forward to meeting everyone in a little under a month from now.

Pete

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I welcome anyone who wishes to attend. If the day is warm and dry we can do more bikes and maybe more will get accoplished. I do not plan to work on my bike this trip but will help anyone else who needs it. Dave Holt is planning on coming and he is really great on working on the LT. All of you are invited to come. I am looking forward to a great day.

Pete,

1. Be careful not to over tighten the oil cover screws.
2. Trans drain plug is above the center stand and between them is a exhaust support bracket that needs to be removed to get access to the drain plug. Loosen the fill plug first, its behind the footpeg brake plate. You will need to have a 14mm - 1/2" drive allen socket that you have to cut the allen down to 3/8" long. A 1/2" x 18" breaker bar will be needed to break the drain plug loose. Take some tin foil and make a u shaped drain guide to the oil pan.
3. The FD is easy, remove fill plug first then the drain plug.

Have fun and I'll see you on the 21st. We can get right to the serious stuff like this;



I will need 6 buckets before I can put it back together.

now yer talkin' Dave. for some reason I thought I read a thread that required the FD to be removed from the bike (along with back wheel, etc...) in order to do the fluid change. But last night I opened up the service manual and right there it was... pull the plug, drain and refill. So the FD will be done as well.

Next, since I have no idea at all what buckets are in there, what should I plan for in terms of buckets? Are there common sizes I should have on hand for this?

Now still no one is commenting on the fluid weight choices? Am I treading on dangerous ground here?

I agree, I've been using the NKG the last 24k miles and clean them at the 12k service and reuse them.

Now still no one is commenting on the fluid weight choices? Am I treading on dangerous ground here?
Here is a list of what I had in my 2003 at a 60k service, the dealer changed one at the 12k service:
Intake- 3-3.00mm
2-2.95mm
3-2.90mm
Exhaust- 3-2.85mm
5-2.80mm
After doing the valve check I found 3 out of spec and 9 at the tightest side of the spec. So after rearranging the buckets I had, I only needed to purchase 2-2.95's and 4-2.75's.

I'll be bringing these with me on the 21st:
3-3.00
2-2.90
2-2.85
3-2.80
1-2.75
If after doing the valve check and a adjustment is needed we can pull the cam/cams and check what sizes will be needed. To increase our chance of having what you will need I would get 2-2.95's and 3-2.75's. With what I'll be bring we should have what is needed.

I've been using the 75w 140 GL5 synthetic since the 12k service for both the trans and FD without any problems. The dealer recommended it then, knock on wood.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Yes I am using the NGK IRD also.

So this does look like a pretty deep procedure and the next thing that needs done on my bike.

I would never ask to do mine on the same day as it looks like 1 guy is going to be pretty busy.

However is anyone attending that knows the brake/clutch flush procedure enough to get me through it?

I have a mighty vac that is way big but given to me brand new, with the brake line attachment, I have I think 5 speed bleeders, 2 different sizes which I do not recall right now and Dot 4.

Also is there anything to bring to help out? I have a little electric screw driver with clutch setting I used for Tupperware removal I can bring for someone to use if they need it.

Or anything else? Food, Drink? Whole NY Strips are on sale for 3.99 up here.

Hell, for a valve check/adjust I would feed 12 guys 1" NY strips no problem and throw in a good case of dark beer

Looking forward to meeting everyone and exited about the event also.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

It seems that we will have a house full on the 21st. I am getting excited to meet so many new friends. Just to let you know I have a few buckets here and will share to anyone who may need them.

1- 2.95
3-2.90
3-2.80
2-2.75

If anyone can use them on that day you may have them.

I can help someone while Dave helps another. If two of you would like to do the valve adjustment. If we get it done early enough I believe Hermy's is open until 4 or 5 pm. He is a 50 min. ride from my house.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I wold love to have mine checked. What would I need to bring if it can be done? Do I need a new gasket? I assume it can be a "short" Tupperware removal? I can bring a digital torque wrench also.

I would think with 14,000 it would be good but I need to find out for sure. The dealer had said they rarely need any adjusting to 24,000 and he said that was not too often either.

No worries I will leave it up to you guys. If two can be done then I would love to do it with some help.

I guess we need to wait and see what the weather is going to do that weekend and then you guys can decide.

How long does it take to cool the bike enough to do the valve check?

I can help someone while Dave helps another. If two of you would like to do the valve adjustment. If we get it done early enough I believe Hermy's is open until 4 or 5 pm. He is a 50 min. ride from my house.

I have all the tools needed to do the service, including the valve check. You can use what you need.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I got my engine oil and FD lube changes completed this morning, piece of cake. Then I looked @ the transmission service. Do you really have to remove the engine fairing? (if you do, it looks like all the body work comes off...). If you do, and from my vantage point it does, I think I will hold off and do it @ the tech session when the bodywork is coming off anyway.

On the buckets, I am going to try to have a few on hand, so between what Lou has, Dave has and I will bring, I'm thinking we'll have plenty to do two bikes.

Nahh just the right passenger foot peg plate and you can hang it with a bungee cord. Behind it is the fill. It is that exhaust bracket that needs removed that gives me fits. Then you need your allen wrench for the drain, and some kind of cardboard or even a plastic jug cut to catch the draining, as that can get messy. Not that bad really.

OK good, then it will be done as well, so we can get to the good stuff.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Here this should help you out a bit.

http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/articles...rticle&artid=4

No Tupperware or stand removal, just the exhaust bracket, and the passenger peg plate.

Scroll down and look it over and compare yours to it and it will make sense I think.

As it says make sure you can open the fill before you open the drain.

Hi Dan, I figure to start about 9 am. to give Dave a chance to get here from Md. But anyone who wants coffee and doughnuts can come as early as they want.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I may try to bring some valve buckets with me as well, and I have some torque wrenches that are good for doing the valve cover, etc. that I'll bring. Probably bring some torx wrenches and a ratchet/sockets too...
Is there anyone doing an overnight on this? I'm not sure about camping yet, it's still a little nippy out

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

So living here within minuets of routes 283/83/81/22/PA Turnpike, anyone want to meet up to ride down?

I have not really map quested it, or tried to set it in the GPS yet (Lou you got those coordinates) so have no clue. I am a procrastinator for sure though.

So anyway, anyone wanna meet up?

I am an early riser and would love to get there, from here 17112, about 8:30ish so if that hits anyone else's schedule I would enjoy the company.

Man, I am really ready for this

Directions from Route 22 coming east are: Exit off the 13th St. Exit in Easton. Go straight to the traffic light and turn left. Go straight to the next traffic light, this is 13th and Bushkill Drive. If you go across the light and bear right the road turns into Lafayette St. Go about half a mile and you will see George St on the left. It is a hard left and goes uphill. Come up the hill and crest going down to the stop sign. Turn right onto Ridge trail. My home is the last house on the left in the block. 1346 Ridge Trail number is on the mailbox.
Hope to see all of you there.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Can't wait to meet all of you, this sure looks like it's going to end up being very informative for sure. Of course now that I see the directions to Lou's, I am wishing I had a GPS Even though it's only about 20 mins away, I'm very Easton naive. I am going to try to get there around 8-ish, so we can get the engine cooling down for the valve check.

Sounds like a plan Pete. Lou said if you were there before me he will help get the Tupperware off. And, if Lee wants to check his I can guide both at the same time. Just remember, you guys are turning the wrenches. That way if we have a good size group everyone will be able to see. See ya Saturday.

I for sure want to do mine and I have no fear on the wrenches.

Again, I am told no need to bring any tools so I wont. I will bring some spare screws in all size/flavors for Tupperware. I bought a kit and will share if any are needed

It is the guidance and knowledge I need and value. So it can be done in a speedy manor. Of course, a guy on the other side is pretty cool also

I have done the 12,000 except for the valves so I did have her pretty nekid. Of course I was under no time restraints and could make references when needed.

I will review the Gunsmoke and various Tupperware instructions I have accumulated later in the week. Old mind, don't want to read it too soon, I may forget it

Looks like the weather is going to be very good to us, at least in the ten day

Learned something today. Map Quest, type your addresses, get your map, load it right into the GPS. Still will print the paper directions from Lou, some habits are best not broken

Pete did it work out for you on the transmission oil change? First time is a pain but after you've done it once or twice it is no issue, other then wondering why they made it that hard

Again really looking forward to meeting so many people.

That is why I want to have guidance on this so I can pass it on. Either in a Full Fledged Tech Call Out, our just another guy that is due and calls out for it and I can help.

To me that is what it is all about, passing it on. The value of these bikes is in the riders. The passion, even with the crazy design features these things have

We could be a bunch of "Bastard" LT owners in the near future, and in this economy we better be able to sustain our community, by as many of us as possible being able to maintain our own, and others LT's.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

I had no issues with the trans oil change, once I figured out where that second screw was on the exhaust hangar It wasn't bad at all to do.

I'm definitely not afraid of turning wrenches, and I'm planning on bringing a set of tools myself so we don't have to steal from each other.

One question, I see we have to drain the gas tank to change the fuel filter - should I plan to bring along a gas can? (I may have to empty one)

Also, I'm going to be bringing a box of Joe and some donuts along. I figure we'll all need the carbs

Pete,

The tank doesn't need to be drained and I have a couple of hose pinch champs we can use if you like. It's best to not have the tank full when removing it and replacing the fuel filter. The less fuel in the tank the lighter it is to lift off.

OK the teach session is all set. The coffee will be on by 8 am. Doughnuts for those who would like them. Room inside for two bikes to be worked on and if the weather is good room in the driveway for a lot more.
See all of you on Saturday.

Re: Tech Session in Easton, Pa. on March 21

Ditto on the thanks and looking forward to seeing and meeting all.

Really ready to get this mystifying maintenance procedure done and over with. For some reason this intimidates me the most out of anything about this bikes maintenance. It will be nice not to be held hostage by a dealer to do it.

Also I see the Gun Smoke article says:
" Clean the cylinder head and valve cover with solvent, swab a little Three Bond 1209 onto the half moon holes and where the cylinder head, cam chain cover, and valve cover come together, and position the new valve cover gasket."

Do we have Three Bond 1209 or the substitute? I have read somewhere on here about leaks when this has not been done.

Anyway whooooooooHooooooooooooo I am ready.

I hope I can sleep tonight, may need a beer or two

I am bringing a tube of High Temp RTV with me so the Three Bond is covered.

Also, there's a good chance that my buddy with a brand spankin new '09 LT (picked it up yesterday) will come along as well.

Great you have some, I always keep it on hand also. I just did not know what they were talking about for sure.

Bruce (1635SMR) and I are going to ride down together from up here. He is about 25 miles West of me, and it looks like I am 1.5 hours out from Lou.

Gonna be a time for sure.

Pics Of Tech Session in Easton, Pa.

It was 22 when I left for the 90 mile scoot at 6:30 AM. Gerbings earned their keep today for sure.

As my posts show in this thread I was very excited about learning how to do this. On the other side I was also a bit anxious too, as it seemed pretty mysterious to me no matter how many times I read the Gun Smoke article. And also meeting new people who you have no clue about other then reading their posts. No worries on that one, what a really cool gathering and group of guys.

We also got a lesson on a broken seat latch release. After all was done, getting ready to move the bike, I pull my seat release and hear a little clink, and cable goes slack with no tension. Lou and Dave hooked me up with a rigging job that may just stay there for the hell of it. Lou and Dave and all who were looking it over, when I got home and looked at it more it looks like it may have been a roll pin. There is a lower area that also has a span with a roll pin in it. Maybe for it to give rather then the latch?

BIG shout of thanks to Lou for hosting. Great garage and he and his wife made me feel very welcome. The dogs are great too!

Dave for sharing your knowledge so freely. You are amazing to say the least. You drove 3 hours each way to help strangers out. It was amazing the amount of information you imparted on us in a clear and concise conversations and demonstrations. You so demystified this procedure for many of us, or at least for me.

Pete for requesting and calling out for the Tech Session.

And the gathering of guys was really cool. Great meeting you guys and really had some fun for sure. Next time we need to get it together for a ride instead of work.

OK enough, here is some pics:

We had to make sure we were cooled down enough so note the temp in Pete's cams.

There were 5 LT's at the curb, and two on the hook. Lou is in the driveway checking them out. Also note the person in the foreground, he got some notes on all this. Every time I looked around he was writing something, I thought I heard him ask Lou for another pencil



And last but not least Dave. Notice he is holding a coffee cup. I almost had him flinch and reach for a tool, but it was a barley perceived movement so i cant count it. He was serious, we had to turn the wrenches, and I would not have wanted it any other way.
