    Ricor Suspension has returned

    I installed Ricor's Intiminator fork valves into the forks of my 2009 F650GS about 10 years ago and found that they provided a big improvement to my fork damping at minimal cost and installation...

    Those are my feelings, exactly. After buying a new motorcycle you need to then visit the aftermarket to purchase a fender extender and a rear wheel cover to keep the gorp off of the front of the...

    Well, Castrol did sell castor (bean) oil that was used in racing vehicles. While I have no idea why, it did smell good as the motorcycles went buy.

    I hadn't heard about that. But it is certainly possible on some engines. However, it didn't happen on my Honda 550 - fortunately. And by the time I replaced it with one of the new (crappy) 750's,...

    Wow! That sounds like a toilet made by BMW purchased with all of the factory options. If it had a TV you might not want to get off the throne. [:D]

    Just to illustrate how the rules for social distancing are anything but uniform around here, while I am apparently legally constrained to a 5-mile radius, I have a friend who usually joins me at...

    Well crap. It looks like my comments about riding have now become somewhat theoretical. My county has just ordered that travel to "nonessential" services, such as hiking areas and going for a joy...

    The end of the cable, above the clutch, is where you make the cable slack adjustment. Loosen both nuts, rotate one of them to adjust the cable slack and then tighten the lock nut.

    Most motorcycle manufacturers, including BMW recommend changing the brake fluid every two years and do not provide a mileage figure. So that is what I do. But I think that a visual inspection of...

    You guys are not true BMW motorcycle riders. A real BMW enthusiast wouldn't spend all that money for a throttle lock when he could make one out of coat hanger wire. What you do is to bend a length...

    Sorry, You are correct. I thought a Brillo pad was one of those plastic-wool scrapers. I think I got the brand mixed up with the 3M pad. I stand corrected. It has been a while since I bought a pad...

    I should have added to my response a week ago that I also switched to an EBC rotor and HH pad and have not experienced the pulsing problem since then. [:)]

    My 2009 F650GS has never shifted very well, feeling notchy and not nearly as smooth as other BMWs that I have owned. However, it does shift positively and I have never missed a shift.

    I don't completely get the "stay at home" concept. I can see that idea during the 1970's gas crisis when fuel was really hard to get. In my case, I live by myself, when I go out riding I don't stop...

    I seem to have this problem every 10K miles or so on my F650GS. The rotor was not warped. I believe the pulsing is the result of friction pad material building up on the brake disc. Try cleaning the...
