About to do this myself. Any tips on the best, least likely to break a bolt, method of removing the original Cat box? Do I do it after a run when everything is warm or cold following liberal coats of penetrating fluid? I assume that removal of the lambda probe on an original installation can also be...

The plug, under the RHS of the seat, on my 1100S is nothing like a hella plug, but the DVM shows it as always live.

I have ended up fitting a standard optimate flying lead direct the to battery however as these are cheap as chips on ebay

Thanks for all the suggestions.

My R1100S is 12 years old which reduces the options somewhat. But sorted for £58 with Green Flag this evening. Hopefully there will be no need to use it but cover looks good.

Breakdown Cover/Insurance in Spain

Having bought the R1100S to do some touring and persuaded 'madam' that it is a good idea, the ferry is booked. Today I thought I'd better check what the cost of breakdown cover was in Spain. The AA quoted £140 or £105 depending on level of cover. For a 11 day trip this seems a little rich. Apart fro...

Brembo Bleed Nipple Thread (MY 2000 R1100S)

During the recent service at RGM Roy was unable to change the brake fluid on the RH caliper as the BMW Filling Valve (in place of a standard bleed nipple) had failed. Unfortunately he didn't have a spare so I figured it'd be a quick job to change. After a call with Steve at Southport a bleed nipple ...

1125R and later CR were 'troubled' bikes with a few interesting characteristics (fuelling was never brilliant, water cooled engine meant fuel boiled in the frame on hot days, poor clutch slave cylinder was never really sorted, problems with the alternator stator). The potential cost of ownership (wi...

the Akra LE was just that, a limited edition fitted with an akra pipe as standard. The RC8 (non R) was built between 2008-2010. In Orange, Whtie and Black. Early ones were stiff as hell and had some recalls. The RC8R (Orange not Black frame) was I think 2009 onwards. The 2009 model is the one to hav...

RC8 is a great bike....I would say that I have one. One of the reasons I just bought the 1100S was to do some touring 2 up as the RC8 is certainly not built for that! £8K for a new 2010 model so in some ways I'll be surprised if he gets £6.5 for it. He'd be better taking the aftermarket kit off, ret...
