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

Might be best since you also need that key to open the seat lock.

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?

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...

Re: Clutch slipping- help R1100S

Well, if you replaced them all there should be no problem with spring pressure, and in honesty the pressure plates you have don't look worn enough to reduce spring pressure much. If it's slipping now so soon I would suspect oil ingress contaminating the plate. I had this happen on my bike. I had to ...

Re: Clutch slipping- help R1100S

There's no adjustment. When you replaced the clutch did you fit just the driven plate or the pressure plates too? Got any photos of what was taken out? It could be an oil seal allowing contamination causing the slip.

Re: Hello all and a starter motor query for a newbie

You need a 5mm allen key to undo the screw which is tucked out of view on the back of the cover. You can see it with a mirror, no3 here.

Re: Front Brake Judder

I hope it is the caliper now you have bought one. I would have swapped the discs over first to see if the problem swaps with it.

Re: Front Brake Judder

You can so clamp a braided brake line just like you would any other. It does them no harm and they return to shape readily. I have done it many times. The bike in the pics above was fitted with them.

Re: Front Brake Judder

Well, after a new wheel, new seals and bearings and new Brembo pads, the judder remains! Discs within permissible run out, wheel straight and true. Next will need to be the callipers. Seem a bit sticky on the inside pistons and the ceramic inserts are cracked although mechanic said that cracked ins...
