Get yourself a set of Torx sockets (Male & Female), as all (the majority) the bolts use Torx.
IIRC they're a 30, but not 100% confident on that.
The torque setting for al bolts are at the beginning of Chapters. Simply look for a chapter which would entail loosening the main frame bolts, and they'll be there.
My guess would be the rear...
do you not have a copy of the Maintenance DVD, or a Haynes Manual? They should show you the Bolts location and required torque settings.
Hi, afraid i won't post internationally. Far too much headache to try and deal with.
If the lower mileage bike was closer, for the small difference of $500 i'd say go for it. But to be 30% over the cost of the one with more miles i wouldn't say it's worth it, and spending 20% of the...
In 3-4 years the bikes will be knocking on 10 years old, mileage is pretty irrelevant at that age really as anyone looking is only after a cheap hack to ride. Not a machine in pristine condition.
lower mileage bike is $1200 higher if i am reading that right? Depending on the cost of the higher mileage is it a large percentage of difference.
In what way is the higher mileage bike no so...
If you've had a few go in succession check the charging output of the RR/Stator. When the system overcharges it'll take out the headlight bulbs (had this happen in a car due to the same reason).
You know they are motorcycles, and not a car. Right?
Personally, i would not go for those. The single bolt fitment will transmit all impact into the frame. So the bodywork might be ok, but the frame might be damaged.
Look for a set up that uses...
Which part of the fairing in particular? Does it feel like loose body work, or simply engine vibrations being transmitted through the frame?
You can add hand guards which do the same job too.
whats your location?
i'm not interested in buying but is useful to know as this is a Global site.
*snipped it down to the issue
FYI (without this meaning to sound preachy) It will help adding some line spaces in big text volumes to make it easier to read, break the story up and for people to...
See if you can hire one, or get an extended test ride, that should help you decide if its right for you.
If you're 90% sure buy one (as a 2nd bike, if funds allow) and see how it goes - if it...
IIRC synthetic is what should be used regardless of the oil weight.
Check what the BMW dealership recommend as they do update the oil recommendation as time goes on.
Check eBay & Autotrader (if you haven't done so yet)
2nd hand prices are currently high due to the current global situation, and lack of new stuff. For the money of those ST's you'll get a 14...
Better off buying a GT at those prices!
it's a spam bot . . . . (check out the other forum messages its posted)
There's a few posts and they're all generic responses based on key words in the post.
Haynes manual - available as a hard copy or online.
Can you take a video/sound recording of the noise? Where does it sound loudest? The Camchain is on the left hand side of the bike, so if it is an issue it should be prevalent there.
What size tank bag do you want? And do you want/need it to be water/rain proof?
There are lots of generic options out there from Kriega, SW Motec and others. whether they are the quick release...
I'm now about 3K miles into these tyres and thought it's a good time for an update.
Tread depth is between 4-5mm across the (rear) tyre, wearing pretty evenly. I didn't measure them when new but...
It's true. With the overall CO2 output of the fleet the offset of BEV & PHEV allow them to continue making high power/polluting vehicles. But this only applies to certain production levels/size of...
