    If the instruments are cutting out, I doubt it’s the solenoid.

    As mentioned earlier, they cut out when the voltage drops due to the battery not being able to provide sufficient voltage once the...

    It’s a dead ringer for the S1000XR for sure.

    I think BMW has deliberately moved away from the styling of the relatively low selling GT and aligned it more with the XR and 850GS to gain a sharper...

    Diesel is quite oily in feel and won’t evaporate in a short time (see the slippery residue around diesel pumps). It smells different to petrol - like kerosene/paraffin.

    It seems odd that it ran...

    Could be a sluggish idle valve, needing a good clean. Check the Hall of Wisdom thread on this.

    These engines are notoriously difficult to bump start - any time I’ve tried from a mobile stall (my fault) it just drags the back wheel.

    If it clicks, then the ECU is doing its job in allowing the...

    Doesn’t anyone ever check the Hall of Wisdom on this forum?

    There’s a thread on replacing the steering head bearings. No grinding, cutting or Dremel work is required for the lower inner race. BMW...

    The average fuel consumption figure could be kilometres per litre, although I don’t recall seeing that as an option (not that I recall looking, either).

    21 km/litre is about 4.8 litres per hundred...

    Hey Cameron

    As Chris mentioned, you could wire it direct to the battery with an inline fuse. My Garmin power lead has a 2A fuse, so that rating would be appropriate. With this arrangement I...

    I've checked the electronic repair manual, for the baseline build F800S - once the circular clip is removed from the front of the thermostat housing, you should then be able to loosen the cap by...

    Whilst ‘heavy duty’ I’d by no means call the gearbox in my 2015 R1200R-LC a box of rocks. It does require precision timing with changes, but at over 70,000 km, my changes are ‘slick as’ whether using...

    Are you sure the 750/850 have metal tanks? From my experience, current model BMW’s use plastic tanks with cover panels.

    Any prospect of using a fine rotary brass wire brush to abrade off the powder coat?

    The clamp bolts are std M8. If you don’t have a tap you could fabricate one from a long M8 bolt. File a taper...

    Just wondering, Pat, if you have ever replaced the cam chain and/or guides in all the distance you’ve ridden the bike.

    This article gives a pretty good description of BMW’s ABS, noting that the F800 doesn’t have the front-rear integration.

    Your R has different front suspension to the S/ST/GT, Mariner. You could easily check the parts fiche to see whether the sidestand part numbers are the same. (Most likely)

    My LC used to sit pretty upright, and I still take care how I park it, but like their seats I think BMW designed the side stnd for the long term. At 3+ years and 70,000+ km the angle of mine on the...

    I'd suggest for track riding you're unlikely to initiate the front brake's ABS as the surface will be predicably...

    The only time I was alarmed by the ABS kicking in was over a series of corrugations at an intersection, leading to a longer than expected stopping distance. A non-ABS bike would probably have simply...

    BMW did that with the F800S - a great bike for real world scratching, but most of the buying public in the market for clip-ons would buy serious track performance for less money (600 supersport). The...
