    Victor - your O2 plots look perfect. Is there any change in the plots when it starts running rough? My first O2 failure was intermittent (a damaged wire) and it would look perfect, until it didn't,...

    If you REALLY love your K75S - it can be converted to ABS.. BTDT, but it's expensive and a lot of work (like disassembling most of the bike sort of lot of work..) You can use the system, and wiring...

    My R1200R at 82k - valve clearances don't seem to change at all now. I check them every other oil change (12k intervals) and they're just like they were last time I checked. And like you - I've never...

    Before disassembling anything.. do the following:

    1. An anal-compulsive valve adjustment. Get them JUST right. See the DIY subforum for how.

    2. Check the throttle-body balance - although this...

    I'd only recommend it if you do NOT have the TPMS.. if you do it will be a very expensive lesson not to use it. It did stop a strange invisible leak I had with the original tire that came on my...

    As far as I know - there is still a waiting list for the R-Nine-T (at my local dealer the list has quite a few people on it.) That's about as retro as BMW is going to get IMHO.. they're not coming...

    Jeff,

    I'm confused. The "main bearing" - I must assume is the crown wheel big bearing (the one near the wheel flange), which is external to the actual drive. This had a seal fail and the grease...

    The moisture it gives off in the tire is very likely to destroy any TPMS (which has a sensor open to the interior of the tire to measure the air pressure.) When I swapped tires after using RideOn it...

    You mention a "faint clunking sound" when crawling along engaging/disengaging.. absolutely normal. There is play in the gear train, and...

    Interesting...almost identical devices were sold decades ago for automobiles, and used mercury for the active medium. Since they are touting "lead-free Durametal" as the active medium, I wonder if...

    It's rather sad that the hardest to change bulb (the RT) is the one that fails the most frequently. On the R1200R I'm still on the original bulbs at 82,000+ miles, and if I did have to change one it...

    This is an "can I eat my cake and have it too?" sort of thing.

    A brighter bulb is brighter because the filament burns hotter. A hotter filament generally doesn't last as long as one that burns...

    It also should be noted that some models (non-GS's) require the swingarm be removed to remove the driveshaft. It may be possible to move the driveshaft back far enough to get the boot in place - but...

    For the oil smoke on startup - there is a trick, especially with the early bricks (which didn't have pinned rings..) When you shut it down, stay on the bike and lean it to the right (starboard) side...

    The crankcase breather from the port side cylinder (at least on the early hexheads) leads directly to the airbox. If there is a lot of oil vapor floating around in the engine, or any blowby on the...

    You may want to check some aftermarket vendors - one or more may make a more adjustable clutch lever with a bigger dog-leg in it (making it effectively just what you're looking for..)
