    Almost forgot another tip, similar to longer travel dual sports and dirt bikes, put your weight on the saddle to make the bike sag and the kickstand will actually help push the bike up as you weight...

    $155 for an FH020AA MOSFET R&R from Roadstercycle.com. You're going to have to start somewhere and right now the consensus is that this is the best starting point.

    I do it with my legs more than my arms, push it up with your left leg against the saddle. Use your arms on the bars too, but most people have legs that are significantly stronger than any part of...

    13.7 at the battery with the engine running sounds too low to me. If it were me I'd start with the R&R as mentioned above and then move on to the stator if that didn't resolve this issue. After you...

    Easier to reset the learned adaptations and start from scratch then relearn from a bad map. Both gs911 sand motoscan can do this.

    Torque is harder on drive systems than power. I know the RR makes more torque too, but it doesn't rely on low rpm torque to move the bike like the T7. It's also worth mentioning that the product...

    Just gonna throw this out there, have you tried visiting a dealer? It's going to cost the same online as it will from a dealer and there you'll have the advantage of letting them look up the part...

    The key is almost always found in context, bots still seem to be pretty bad when it comes to the continuity of context. Occasionally a non-native speaker may make a post that is questionable, but a...

    When I don't have the right size guide I use wax paper, the kind you'd use for baking. A light smear of fork oil will 'glue' it in place and the seal will slide over the tube nicely.

    Test an incandescent bulb, look up the resistance of the led and throw a little math at it.

    They probably just need a resistor to correct the load seen by bike, probably.. That said, is yours not working because the bulb is burned out or is it not getting power. One of those is easy to...

    Was thinking about this again today, for the few years I had my 800gs, my ave was 46mpg. Considering it's virtually the same engine as the 800r I'd say it's def down to the rider and riding style.

    You nailed it when you said that your mileage drops into the 40's at 75mph. My round trip commute is right around 75-80 mph, Bay Area freeways can be intense. Take expressways at 50mph and the...

    2008 was before Euro3 right? We're on Euro 5 now, Euro 4 was 2016/2017 I think. Each implementation gets more and more strict.
    And yes I know we aren't following the same rules, but BMW tends to...

    Mine got much better with an update last fall. A light touch on the shifter makes it worse, kick the gear firmly without hesitation and it does better. 3/4/5/6 up are fine regardless of rpm. 3/4...

    No help with the cold starts, but that's across multiple BMW models from what I've seen online. The quick shifter has improved over time with software updates, it's still not perfect but I've heard...

    They did with the 900 platform to make the price look attractive against the competition. What I don't get is why so many media outlets did their reviews on base models and more than a few were...

    Can't speak to the capacity, but to only get 41mpg makes me think they had a teenager on the throttle. I have the slightly heavier XR and have never seen worse than 45mpg, my ave when not even...
