Re: Unbalanced & drippy

Leaning a fuel injection bike should make no difference as the fuel is held in a pressurised system (pump - regulator - injector) - there's literally nowhere for it to run to or from. It's most likely that your problem lies with the injector. Swap the over to see if the fault moves. Take care with t...

Sadly I didn't until after it was sold.

Exhaust repair

A couple of weeks ago my bike got suddenly very noisy and here's the reason why. The joint where the stub goes into the silencer had rotted through. Odd that this one bit should rot away yet the rest is in such good condition. Here's I've cleaned up one side and ready to do the same on the stub. bmw...

Re: Unbalanced & drippy

It's possible that the injector needs servicing, it might not be shutting off properly. It's not super expensive to get them serviced, someone with an ASNU machine will give you a flow and spray pattern report before and after for comparison.

Re: ABS-ectomy

If I did remove the ABS I wouldn't declare it as a modification. They come standard with ABS or NON-ABS but the distinction is not made on the V5C and I wasn't asked if it was ABS or NON-ABS when I took the policy so to my thinking either way is 'standard'. My first bike was ABS (which the previous ...

Re: London Emission Zone

The ULEZ system will automatically make any pre-2007 non-compliant until they get evidence that it isn't then the database is updated on a per-bike basis, so it's not surprising that the ones you checked were not. BTW from what I can gather that place that nab301 linked to manage to get most of the ...

Re: Curing my rattling throttle bodies

Post away AL, if I didn't want people to know it I would not have put it here.

BTW take great care when staking those screws. I put them in with high-strength threadlock and staked them, you do not want those coming loose and getting sucked into the cylinders.

Re: London Emission Zone

Starting new job in the city, and my 11S is not compliant, so unless I buy another newer bike I'm stuck on the sweaty betty trains and tube. Could take bike and park outside zone and walk a mile in all my gear I suppose? Don't fancy that Your 11s will be compliant, because mine is. All you need is ...

Re: Clutch slipping- help R1100S

I just checked back on my posts here and when I had this problem it wasn't the slave seal it was the gearbox input shaft seal. I ended up stripping the gearbox and fitting a new seal but I also drilled a weep hole in the cavity to make sure any further leaks got drained away instead of migrating thr...

Re: Key problem

The ignition barrel is fitted with two security bolts. To remove it you have to either drill the bolt heads off or put a 1mm grinder cutting disc in the join and cut them. This will damage both the top yoke and the barrel but you can later space them out with a flat washer each side. I had to do thi...

Re: ULEZ - 1150GS - anyone passed the requirements?

I got a letter from BMW confirming the NOx emissions based on the info in the European Type Approval documentation. That is a third route. You can ask for this by using the same email as for the Certificate of Conformity - eccoc@bmw.co.uk Mind you, TFL/CClondon still haven't managed to add my bike t...
