It's been fun. 4 screws left over with one that I expected so 3 fairing related screws that I couldn't see where to put.

Definitely need to replace RH upper and lower fairing pieces in the future due to broken locations where they join at the front. Used a zip tie to hold them together instead of gluing like I did when the timing belt got done. Item 12 and Item 3 here http://www.st-1100.com/st1100-parts-fic ... 100ax.html Item 6 and Item 3

When I changed the coolant over I removed the lower grey panel and as I was putting it back on I noticed that oil had somehow got on it. Turns out the filter was weeping through the seal so I tightened that up again. I don't have issues with the OEM filters so I might go back to them - can buy in packs of three from the UK which I used to do.

Noticed the fuel hose retaining clip rearward of the fuel filter was off - did I even put it back on when I replaced the filter at timing belt change over.

Might have to take the LH switch block off and clean the Hi/Lo switch contacts as they are a bit slow when going to high beam.

New plug on the LH globe

Not the easiest place to get into with a soldering gun and solder with only two hands - had to make sure the wires were correct - just as well the OEM plug was there for reference.

Success - wonder how long my soldering efforts will last - soldered the wire to activate the driving light relay into the high beam circuit as well.

The dash shelf had to be mounted twice as it was to far to the left and interfered with screen. Just needed to swap the rear brackets around as both sides aren't quite identical.

Before I could ride the bike back home I got a little go juice. Not often I get past 400 never mind 445 Km before fuelling up.
