Re: spark plugs

Of all the things that fail on a modern vehicle ...... is a spark plug one of them? They rarely fail but maybe if you hook the bike up to a gas analyser you'll find it isn't performing as well as it should in the emissions dept or maybe it really is just a way of getting owners to part with their h...

Re: spark plugs

How much!! Replacement plugs for my 1200r lc should be changed at about 12k miles, They want about £13 each. Needless to say as the plugs looked great i will not be taking that advice. Chris. I think you'll find that replacing plugs at 12 k is called preventive maintenance, as opposed to replacing ...

Re: cam chain tensioner

There are three tensioners on the 1100 . You can purchase from , Main dealers , Motorworks, Motobins or James Sherlock, and I'm sure there are other sellers also.

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

I ) ! I think the colder denser air thing really works on Carburettor fed engines rather than injected - ) Feel free to explain to my pea sized brain :wink: I'm familiar with iat sensors on injected engines but surely unless the carbed engine is running too rich or too hot or both, cold denser air ...

Re: Classic Motorcycle Mechanics R1100S Article

I did buy a couple of magazines to read over christmas one of which is CMM , and was surprised to see the 11S article in the January edition I bought . I haven't read the magazine yet and while it might be helpful there is probably better advice on here if you dig deep or youtube.

Re: R1100S Master Cylinder (Front Brake and Clutch) Refurb Parts

Re: R1100S Master Cylinder (Front Brake and Clutch) Refurb Parts

Anyone else done some refurbing of the master cylinders ? Not yet , but as mine is 20yrs old I've got it on my to do list... £60 odd stg seems to be the price generally for the repair kit and with brakes I don't usually begrudge spending money within reason balanced against brake failure !!

Re: R1100S- It just cut out

I have read your other post too , and in that one you mention the bike has low miles which should eliminate corroded connectors and the like but it's a difficult one to diagnose .. When the bike cut out did you happen to notice if the speedo / rev counter stopped working ? ( Hall sensor failure) war...

Re: Pleasant Surprises on my recent R1100S purchase

I've regularly fallen in and out of love with my 11s over the years ( or is it decades :shock: ) . But this time of year I always tend to put up a lot of miles on it , it must be the lower temperatures , it just seems to run so much better and smoother. In recent years I've fitted a lennies and the ...
