    I have these tyres on my F800GT, but not the GT version of the tyres, just the standard sizes and standard version. I've had them on the bike for approx 2000-3000 miles now. I generally only ride...

    If you wanted to check the oil-air gap, but still didn't want to remove the forks, you could take the front wheel out, after taking the spring out, and then push the fork up to at least try and get a...

    Hi, I just fitted new progressive springs (Wilbers), and although there is enough info posted here how to do it, I still found "steps missing". Here is what I did, which may help others. Most of the...

    You can see the pools of epoxy. Actually, it looks like I've used a lot in the photo, but it was really only a small amount I've mixed.
    The socket is now very stable, and the...

    I've gone for the epoxy route ... Operation seems to have gone well so far. As the pads on the board had lifted, but were still soldered on, I'm not sure if a repair shop could of done anything else....

    I played around with my GPS ... connecting it to a USB charger using a different cable showed the same symptoms.
    Fault is not with the can bus switched supply

    I'm starting to think the problem is the USB connection on the GPS unit. I wobbled it around a little, when it was stuck in. I'm seeing power disconnection in the GPS display. These are occurring way...

    I don't think I'm getting close to 5A, but I might be! If the GPS battery is not charged, then the can bus lead must provide power for the GPS, which includes charging the battery, and likely the...

    Hi,

    Has anyone else seen similar symptoms when using the can-bus controlled switch ?
    Does it turn off if it gets overloaded ?
    The power always comes back on again after a minute or two. The...

    I've just had the switch appart. The 4 tabs holding the top part (plunger) just need carefully lifting a little, to get the top off. Except one of the tabs is so close to the casing, that I couldn't...

    Thanks very much for the part numbers. I just looked at Max BMW's website, and they even have a photo of the pin. With the description what to do, and photo, its clear how I can swap the switch out....

    The rear brake microswitch is "stuck" off (brake light off) on my bike. I've now taken the right footrest bracket off twice in a bid to repair it, but both times after I got it working again, it gets...

    Thanks for that tip, I'll try that next time I'm working on the left side again. A friend has an old WW2 Jeep, and plenty of imperial size tools too. I'll see if he has a 5/8" I can borrow.

    Hi,
    The rear brake light switch on my GT was gummed up, and to get at it, I had to take the right side footrest plate off, which means the right center stand bolt too. No problem really, easy to do....
