Re: Tank bag for R1100S wanted please?

Hello Also, any information about different attachment methods for said tank bags would’ve appreciated? 2Twins The original BMw egg type bag hooks on directly at the front and rear of the tank . The Famsa bag has a base which hooks on to the tank and the bag then zips on to the base . I've found th...

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

I ) ! I think the colder denser air thing really works on Carburettor fed engines rather than injected - ) Feel free to explain to my pea sized brain :wink: I'm familiar with iat sensors on injected engines but surely unless the carbed engine is running too rich or too hot or both, cold denser air ...

Re: Classic Motorcycle Mechanics R1100S Article

I did buy a couple of magazines to read over christmas one of which is CMM , and was surprised to see the 11S article in the January edition I bought . I haven't read the magazine yet and while it might be helpful there is probably better advice on here if you dig deep or youtube.

Re: R1100S Master Cylinder (Front Brake and Clutch) Refurb Parts

I don't know exactly what the diameter of the BMC is, 16mm or 20mm? If you can confirm the size and then do a search I guess . Venhill list some kits but they're still £ 50 odd stg...

Re: R1100S Master Cylinder (Front Brake and Clutch) Refurb Parts

Anyone else done some refurbing of the master cylinders ? Not yet , but as mine is 20yrs old I've got it on my to do list... £60 odd stg seems to be the price generally for the repair kit and with brakes I don't usually begrudge spending money within reason balanced against brake failure !!

Re: R1100S- It just cut out

I have read your other post too , and in that one you mention the bike has low miles which should eliminate corroded connectors and the like but it's a difficult one to diagnose .. When the bike cut out did you happen to notice if the speedo / rev counter stopped working ? ( Hall sensor failure) war...

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

I've regularly fallen in and out of love with my 11s over the years ( or is it decades :shock: ) . But this time of year I always tend to put up a lot of miles on it , it must be the lower temperatures , it just seems to run so much better and smoother. In recent years I've fitted a lennies and the ...

Re: Battery for early R1100S

If the 896 is doing the job I'd just cover it ( the terminals ) with a piece of old inner tube to insulate it.... Other than that does your bike have Abs ? If so you'll need a 19 or 20A/h battery. I've used a locally purchased Platinum ctm19lbs AGM battery which I laid on its side after modifying th...

Re: Oil light and Speedometer problems.

Finally got this back together but other than the above mentioned corrosion on the blue connector block nothing found . The rear brake light connector in the same area as the speedo connector was corroded badly so I repaired this , but the speedo connector was ok . Charging rate on re checking was o...

Sounds like you have Bmw comfort bars , I've the same , I tend to swop between above and below the yoke , haven't had problems so far .... since '04 Photo in this thread shows the location peg for when they're above the top yoke http://www.boxertrix.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=22685&hilit...
