    I did my last ST at around 50K miles, and i'll do this one the same. On my last valve adjustment the difference was minor/didn't even need doing. I would prefer a slightly 'looser' valve clearance...

    a washer is only a penny . . . . cheaper than any part!

    Motorworks are open and functioning mostly as normal, just no collection; deliveries only.

    If you put the parts in to realoem.com it tells you what other bikes use that part;

    LH Case

    what from the GS are you trying to bring over to the ST platform?

    You will struggle to make it look 'natural' as the GS bikes sit very differently compared to the S/ST/GT bikes, and share very...

    So much easier to do with the rear wheel removed. You don't need to remove the exhaust entirely - remove the hanging strap bolt, and then loosen the collar where it connects to the main system and...

    Are you applying any throttle when pressing the starter? Just having another battery hooked up is enough.

    when the engine is turning over, does it sound like it is sparking and fuelling, but not catching? Or only that the engine is turning over with none of the combustion cycle happening?

    I wouldn't take any tools to remove wheels on the bike. Any puncture repair kit can be done with the wheel in place. Worst case you're calling roadside recovery anyway.

    Which part is on the suspension Diagram? use this link to help us see what it is.

    Most sizes are T25 for the fairings and most of the bits underneath it.

    TBH there's not much you can repair on the side of the road with the ST as it is all controlled by modules.
