Re: where to buy bmw spares?

My 'go to' place is Motorworks, I pickup the drain washer kits with sump plug, gearbox plugs and final plug washers: -

But they do sell them individually too.

Re: Bike "Dash Cam"

I have used a Drift Stealth 2 camera on my helmet for a couple of years, unfortunately water got in following on of the storms we had in October and it stopped working. I have however just purchased a cheap Chinese GoPro knock off to replace it:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Campark-ACT76-4K-Sport-Cam...

Re: Front brake shudder !!

Re: NEC Motorcycle Live Bike Park theft warning

They said they would look at the CCTV footage and see if they could identify the culprit and then see if they could get the registration of his/her bike and pass on to the police! - I am not holding my breathe!

Re: K&N Oil Filters Failing

I have used them on my R1150R for the last couple of years - on the R1150R the filter is recessed up into the motor so doesn't stick out of the bottom to get caught - as regard to the nut coming off - oil filters should only be tightened gently and not 'swung on', which I suspect is the issue with t...
