I never expected my post to generate such interesting banter. After some searching (16x20 doesn't appear to be a common size) I found a pack of 50 from GWR Fasteners on EBay for the princely sum of £2.90 delivered. I'll be dead by the time they run out, if I don't loose them first.

Drain Plug Sealing Washer Size

Anyone know the size of the Engine Oil drain plug sealing washer (2000 R1100S)? Though I have done loads of oil changes on bikes and cars without ever changing the sealing washer suddenly I have the urge to do it properly next time and would like to be prepared rather than scury down to the local bi...

That's the one. Needs a little work but it's inviting Certainly looks the business and as you say the best aestetic Buell by far. One of the guys in UKBeg has a stunning shiney example of which I will be eternally jealous! After being gutted that it didn't come up a few days earlier I reasoned I wa...

I know, it looks lovely! At least one bit of X1 on it though!

S1W is my ideal buell but just bought a 2001 X1, as a 'reliable' alternative. It has just been thoroughly Maz'd too before I bought it and effectively sealed the bargain. Though a grumpy b'stard Maz knows the machines inside out and his fettling certainly made my previous XB9R a better machine. As f...

My '10 RC8 was a flipping missile. Lumpy at low revs but definately not short of midrange. Lumpiness was tamed with a different map.
A very fast machine, in fact a little too fast really. It never liked going slowly.

Upgraded Cam Chain Tensioner? Mine rattles on start up too. What do I need to fix it?

Jez have you still got the Buell? What is/was it like, i,ve always admired them but have only ridden the XB models which sure were a bundle of fun. Just bought the X1 (had an XB9R for years then a 1125R for a while before). Always fancied a 'tuber' and found the right one that had been fettled prop...

1100S Centre Stand Bolt Failure

I am sure that others may know this already but while a friend and I were working on his kit car, in our drive, this afternoon he noted that there was a broken pivot bolt on my R1100S that was parked up alongside where we were working. I had not noticed the problem when operating the stand. Seems, f...

Mmm, I am jealous and don't want to appear like its 'sour grapes', but £15 :?: That reeks of a rogues bargain to me, Is some poor bastard missing his R1100S and/or exhaust.......... Having chatted to the bloke, seen the photo of his R1100S on his phone and heard him talk about it fondly, I am compl...
