    Rider Info Display

    Thank You. When I added more fuel and no bars, I figured I might as well go back into the tank, as that's where the problem would be. Thanks for the input.

    Over Winter I performed a good baseline service on my 2003 R1150RT. This included complete brake bleed, which required removing the fuel tank. While the tank was off, I replaced the fuel filter and...
  8. Spline backlash

    I just performed the above test when I removed the starter on my 03' R1150RT. I observed maybe one mm of backlash at the most, with the clutch pulled. No visible dust, red, grey or other. Bike has...

    03' RT Rear Wheel Removal

    Valve adj/TB sync

    I didn't believe what I was seeing. So, I did the whole Twin Max routine three times. I still think it's wierd.

    Valve adj/TB sync

    I just completed a valve adjustment and TB sync on my 2003 R1150RT. The valves were mostly on the loose side of things. I found it to be a 'fiddely' operation. (I cut my teeth doing valve adjustments...

    I use Obenauf's. It's the stuff that Smoke Jumpers and other Wildland Firefighters use on their boots. The above technique works well. Work it in with a toothbrush, preferably not your own.
