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: 11S fuel filter challenge

Have to agree, removing the fuel filter could not possible any harder. Why why why is the opening to get the pump/filter assembly in/out so frigging SMALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its also by a million miles the hardest ever tank to remove from the bike FFS

Re: Oil filler cap

Had that on my old R11S and fixed it by changing the entire oil filler plastic insert with cap. That is, bottom O-ring, plastic insert, cap with O-ring, four parts in all, takes 5 min although the bottom part is tricky to get seated properly but some persuation with a correctly sized socket and rub...

I had the same same on my GS I replaced the Oring on the actual cap but no joy (used a BMW one because of the thickness) and so had to get the plastic insert part that goes in to the valve cover. Problem solved you need parts 5 and 6 from this IPC Picture https://shop.maxbmw.com/fiche/DiagramsMain....

Oil filler cap

As bike not sold yet, I'm prepping it for annual pilgrimage to Assen next month. I had a very minor weep from filler cap when motorway cruising. As it doesnt happen any other time I guess it's because of constant pressure from within the engine at 5000 rpm or there abouts. It doesnt do it if no moto...
