Re: Battery for early R1100S

If the 896 is doing the job I'd just cover it ( the terminals ) with a piece of old inner tube to insulate it.... Other than that does your bike have Abs ? If so you'll need a 19 or 20A/h battery. I've used a locally purchased Platinum ctm19lbs AGM battery which I laid on its side after modifying th...

Re: Oil light and Speedometer problems.

Finally got this back together but other than the above mentioned corrosion on the blue connector block nothing found . The rear brake light connector in the same area as the speedo connector was corroded badly so I repaired this , but the speedo connector was ok . Charging rate on re checking was o...

Re: Unbalanced & drippy

There's three cables , primary to the junction box under the tank and then one to each throttle body . If one of the secondary cables is frayed / sticking it could cause the lumpy running you describe . It's a panels and tank off job and while you're in there as already mentioned check out the plug ...

Re: Unbalanced & drippy

Bike leans over to left on side stand. any fuel/ condense may collect as it will act as a sump. Just a thought. chris Cheers Chris, only just seen your reply. Yes, that does make sense - my R1100S is always on its side stand. Tick over has suddenly got lumpy again which is quite odd...... I thought...

Re: Exhaust differences BCR

and a general feeling of reluctance to pull unless you wrenched open the throttle, when it actually felt surprisingly quick. . What set up did you have before you returned to standard?

Re: R1100S engine number

You got me thinking , so I've just had a look and although it was visible years ago the paint on most of the engine has departed (including the vertical strip below the middle of the R/H cylinder) and oxidisation has made the numbers less visible . I tried chalk but that didn't help , brake cleaner ...

Re: Oil light and Speedometer problems.
