Re: On the 'Cup again

Having seen several lights with holes in or cracked in work I'm a bit paranoid about it now :D Headlamps are expensive covers are cheaper. If your lamp has a hole in the glass it will fail the MOT. So fix the hole with Araldite and then fit a cover to stop it happening again. :D -- Voice of experie...

Tip - Only loosen one side at a time and you can even leave the wheel in. Done this mod three time once on an 1100s and twice on R1200ST's

Re: battery booster/ starter

I keep waiting for my car battery to Die.

Its now 9 years old - 1.6 Diesel Citroen C5 - As I understand it what tends to happen with batteries nowadays is that they will be fine one day and dead the next is this what everyone else has experienced lately? or do they still go downhill gradually?

Re: The dreaded ABS/EVO .... rear brake

Just because the switch clicks don't mean is actually working - No Pump noise from the rear brake - so I'd say I'd say switch is the culprit - I'd check that the switch was actually getting power to and from it first before worrying about fault codes etc.

Re: London Emission Zone

My 2009 R1200RT on which I pay £90 p.a. duty is exempt but my Car which is registered in 2010 and on which I I pay £30 p.a. duty is not exempt - go figure. At least I don't live in the Zone - my friend does he has a 2013 Audi A4 and he must either sell it and buy a new car or pay £4,562.50 a yer - U...

Re: Clutch slipping- help R1100S

"Not a trivial job but definitely do-able if you have a little mechanical acumen."

Is that a metric or imperial "Acumen" and is it 1/2 inch drive or 3/8th

Re: My 2004 R1100S Diary

At 6'1" I'd lower the pegs to get the benefit from the raised bars. It lessens the amount of knee and ankle bend required. Oh yes and before someone ticks you off. Air head is the old Boxer twin with push rod valves. The 1100 S and others of that Ilk (R1150) are Oil Heads as they are AIr / Oil ...
