Re: Front brake shudder !!

Gerry I have had my 11S since new and I tried a couple of aftermarket sets of pads when I was doing trackdays with the bike. I got awful shudder with one set and serious fade with another set - sorry can't remember what make they were as they went straight in the bin. Once I refitted genuine BMW pad...

Re: Forum issue

Strange how that comes to exactly the same amount as my actors' fee for appearing in this year's Welsh Weekend Boxertrix short video of yours.
Nice doing business with you, I do so like nice endings - don't you?

Re: Forum issue

Thanks Chris
Nice to know I am ahead of you...... Oh but you already knew that!

Did the mark as read thing and that seems to have fixed it - otherwise I have no idea how to flush the cashe.
The only flushing I know how to do is - pulling the chain.

Anyone else got this same problem with the forum? Since it was posted in "Days Out" I see the orange light on the left, indicating a new post, titled "Fri 30th Yorkshire" by Stoney. But there is only the one post by Stoney done on Nov 26th and no replies. All other orange indicat...

Re: I'm Riding Backwards for Christmas

Funny you should say that Al. Went in for a tendon operation 30 years ago and they started shaving the back of the wrong hand. It took a bit of an argument with the nurse before she believed me that she was wrong! Had a similar argument with the surgeon about 3 years ago in an op, when he said he wa...

Re: I'm Riding Backwards for Christmas

Chris Re hireing a dog and barking myself. I do it so I can check the tyres are fitted the correct way round and then that the right torque is used to re-fit the wheels. With conventional forks there is also a correct order to tighten up clamp bolts and spindle nuts etc. so the legs aren't pulled ou...

Re: I'm Riding Backwards for Christmas

I always take the wheels off to give to the tyre fitter and also put two large marker pen arrows on the rim for rotation direction .
Even so I had to tell one guy to go back and do it again to get the direction correct before I left.

Re: I bought a bike from an auction!

Phil

Just as a matter of interest, have you (or Karen) made any mods to the suspension at either end of the F800R to improve it?
I reckon that mine is ok dribbling about, but it is way underdamped and bouncy when I start pushing it along.

Re: I bought a bike from an auction!

You're right Chris, the ST was £300, but I had to spend just over £400 to get it fixed. But it does go well doesn't it? Actually it now gives me a problem, because I like riding it more than my R11S now that I have fitted higher bars. Mainly a weight thing though - as I advance into the fringes of o...

Don't have wraparound glasses, but wear conventional ones with 3 different lids.

Re: Youtube downloads

Blackal

I've often wondered is there a way of saving a video clip to my computer and then I have it for posterity even if it gets taken down.

Is what you are doing (and paying a licence fee for) the only way?
