Re: Strange handling

Front ball-joint wear or tyres squaring off (can be rear tyre only, as well as front squaring off - giving odd steering sensation)

Re: 5 countries in 4 day

Chris Just fit a wind deflecting screen for the longer journeys, rather than change the bike again as you like it so much. Then on the shorter jaunts take it off if you like the looks of it better. Otherwise follow my lead and get a £300 scrap yard F800 and do whatever to it for touring :D It'll sti...

Re: Ilmberger hugger flew off :(

My Pyramid one has been on since I bought the bike which I've had since new. Only issues were slightly soft hex head cap screws to fit it which I replaced with SS after about 5 years. And I have hammered that bike on trackdays at Oulton, Mallory, Cadwell and Anglesey as well hundreds of laps of the ...

Re: Track Day

If you take the cyl head protectors off and unscrew the early warning screws from the footpegs you can get another couple of degrees of lean angle and ride around the outside of people on long sweepers too! R1100S's can out-brake many other sportsbikes, not only because the telelever front end inspi...

Re: What is this..

Is that an EB Bugatti logo on the front quarter?
Their cars are built by Germans (VW), so maybe this is a concept bike with German engine too?

I think you'll find that most if not all of those technologies are a lot older than 20 years - i.e. sodium filled valves on the 1930's RR Merlin V12 & post war Manx Norton.

Re: How long is a modern Beemer designed to last ?

Seem to recall an European law which says that manufacturers have to be able to provide a product and all the spare parts for it for a minimum of 10 years. But that may be a figment of my imagination, or not...............

Re: R12S THROTTLE ECCENTRIC REMOVAL

I got used to it in about 50 miles and then it didn't bother me at all, even though it was odd to start with.
Just one of the characteristics to get used to and then remember, when you swap bikes on a regular basis,
Just call it "character" :D .

Re: Vintage bikes.

Have a chat with Steve then Chris, they sell Harleys downstairs from his BMW showroom if you really want the Dark Side.
Old Brit iron is just the oily side - usually on the outside, instead of where it is rumoured it does more good on the inside!

Re: New Avon Storm 3DXM tyre set

James

Nope - some are smaller. The 5" rim has 170 section tyre on.
You have the wider rim and thus the larger 180 tyre.

Re: R1100s top end rattle

James Does it rattle worse on cold start up on the LH cylinder? If so, it is likely to be the LH cam chain tensioner. These are a regular known issue and Motorworks / Moto - bins do a replacement upgraded tensioner to fix the problem. The RH cylinder doesn't need it because the tensioner is fitted t...

Ah, that'll be at the cafe behind the Crossgates garage then - a regular stopping off point.
