Re: Fitting a new roundel into the top yoke. Grrr.

What could I do but agree with Dave The German viz "file it a little" ... since BMW won't share its secret. LOL

All good now.

Re: R1100S seat

Word of caution: I just had my seat re-upholstered by a fellow who came with recommendations from riders. OMG - total disaster. He had no idea on how to handle the double curvature of the curved low-high rise, so he covered the whole seat with 1/2" foam and then stretched the upholstery tight o...

Thanks Dave. Will do.

What is puzzling is the one I dug out has the same edge but BMW somehow got it into the recess.

Fitting a new roundel into the top yoke. Grrr.

Hi All.

Is there any trick to this?
New roundel sits on top of the recess but I can't push it in.
Grrrr. :x

Cheers.

John Gemi R1200GS chips?

Hey All. :D Currently riding a mate's 2010 R1200GS (following theft of my old Leadwing). From everything seen on forums it seems John's chips are the answer to the maiden's prayer ... BUT ... not for the R1200GS. Puzzled. I thought I had read not only here, but also on other forums, high praise re t...

ABS bleed problem. Control circuit 6.

Hi Everyone. Tech problem: I'm doing a fluid change on my ABS system. (Using the UKGSer procedure) All going very well until the last step - ie pumping fluid from the rear brake reservoir and out bleed nipple 6 on the ABS block. Only pumps air with each press of the rear brake lever. Rear reservoir ...

Re: '03 11S: Evo ABS, Integral ABS --- SOLVED. :-D

Thanks Steve and Neil. Mystery solved !!! :D Build date for my bike is April '03. Is when Tokico calipers were fitted. Pad Dimensions are 81.5mm x 45mm x 9mm. OEM manufacturer pn: Toyo C93F HH. Earlier Brembo pads are 78mm x 52mm x 8.5mm. Quite an obvious difference in physical appearance. Cheers. J...

'03 11S: Evo ABS, Integral ABS, ABS1, ABS2 ... Arrrgggh!

Hi Everyone. :-) What began as a simple front pad change has turned into a major theatrical drama production. Well - sort of. I recently purchased a set of pads - ostensibly for an R11S with ABS. Remove existing (worn) pads - OA thickness 8.4mm, only to find the OA thickness of the new pads is 8mm. ...

Re: tank removing R1100S.. seriously????

When I were lad you removed the petrol tank by removing seat, undoing 1 bolt and pulling off 1 or 2 fuel pipes. Ducking hell, this bloody bike, you need remove fairing(both sides), remove air intake tube thingywotsit, then faced with what seems like 50 million differnt pipes coming off the tank, wh...

Re: Lennies carbon air tube fitting question.

Wasn't the air filter modified as well, remember several threads on here and Pelican, "val singleton" mod if I remember correctly, I ran a K&N with mine. Al. Nope. I use the stock air filter with my InDuct. Various US places try to flog monster filter arrangements with all sorts of sn...

Re: Lennies carbon air tube fitting question.

Some places are selling only the back half of what they claim to be a "Lennies InDuct". Is a knock-off copy (after Lennie did all the work). Grrrr. You'll need the front half for full benefit. The aerodynamics of the nose of the original snorkel look less than inspiring, IMHO. Cheers. John...

Re: Oil in air box

Had the same problem in my "S". Disappeared when I fitted longer GS intake tubes. ($35 from wrecker). I have Lennies InDuct and stock everything else. As well, I gained A LOT of bottom - mid-range torque, with more low rpm flexibility. No loss of top end, with a broader power spread. 15-20...
