    The brake cleaner is to help clean along with the wet and dry paper . . . . . it won't do anything on it's own except help to remove grease. Which is why i suggested it - you don't want any grease,...

    If i remember right a GS911 can do it, so can the Motoscan tool. Otherwise a dealer can do this for you, my dealer only charged 1 hours labour for this (i know it's not cheap!).

    Because you don't know the history of it, and the condition of the oil and seals on the internals . . . . For something that's really only done every 5 years, it's not a large price to pay.

    Already did! My old man got one after the GS. I love the Engine and the ride, but found it quite top heavy. I know they are a bit chunky at about 250KG, add any luggage on to it and its up there.

    The engine's are a peach on these (& the ST). A very adaptable engine to cruise, thrash and tour with. It certainly has a great balance between BHP & Torque to be such a rideable engine.
