Beautiful catch! Amazing how easy it is to manipulate a group.
Cudos to you, Chris. Job well done.
Welcome! Please post your early thoughts about your new ride. And maybe a bit about yourself.
I really appreciate your detailed posts and the excellent pictures. Than you for sharing your trip.
Bienvenue sur notre site. Profitez de votre entraînement et de votre nouvelle moto.
SKF Green for certain. Widely available.
BMW doesn't have any special tricks when it comes to the fork seals (or bearings.)
This is probably one of those projects where each solution leads to another impediment. Eventually, you wonder if it's worth it. I don't know if there's a lot of satisfaction solving this the hard...
Maybe this gives you some ideas.
The irregular shape of the tank requires the sensor float to be about halfway.
What you are hearing is, most likely, the timing chain. There are various areas subject to wear and this allows the chain to move a bit more. It's not an issue requiring replacement but rather an...
• FLASHING GREEN ABOVE - 15.2V
• STEADY GREEN 12.9V - 15.1V
• STEADY AMBER 12.7V - 12.8V
• STEADY RED 12.1V -...
Yes! In my case it was one day to the next. I have a multi-coloured LED voltage monitor that went from green (good) to red (bad). Pretty much skipped right past yellow. I was about 50km from home and...
There's some serious effort in there! Metal work, wood work, painting and the fabric covering. Nevermind fitting it around the existing equipment. A+ for effort.
It should help keep heat in the pipe and send it out the exhaust. Whether that's measurable to the rider is likely very subjective. Forum users have demonstrated in the past a wide range of personal...
OEM stator lasted to 66,000 km. The regulator/rectifier was fine but I upgraded from the shunt style to Mosfet technology.
New parts are from RMStator, a Canadian company that offers a 2 year...
I've used spareto.com in the past. Shipping with DHL and tax was €120.68 (about USD$135). Received in 5 days.
Google translate. [:)]
The posts seem to be about lotteries. I'd respond but I'm busy with a Nigerian prince whose money is stuck at Customs.
Welcome back. I have read a number of posts where people have been asking about you. You have obviously made a lasting impact here.
I look forward to reading your posts, once again.
Welcome! The bike looks well cared for.
Did it come with rain tires? [:)]
Normally, I'd suggest a leaking fuel injector. With the modification to fueling (AF-Xied), this could also potentially be a cause : over fueling.
Also, the gas will reduce the oil's viscosity....
I took a different direction this time. Rather than an OEM replacement, I measured the dimensions of the battery compartment and purchased the largest battery I could find. This gave me more cold...
The BMW annual service lists coolant change every 4 years.
Like all previous posts, I concur that at 30,000 there is no issue.
Use it as a negotiating point and pick up a well maintained bike.
Neither are molybdenum, so these do not fall under the BMW warning.
I think you are probably asking "why" as the BMW statement you have quoted states that molybdenum will attack coated components.
Coatings can be used to improve the thermal properties, the ability...
