    I have had several sets of TKC80's on bikes, Karoos and Dunlop 606s and they are all good. I would say the TKC's lasted the longest on the road and had a great balance of hwy and gravel etc. the...

    That is easily done if the previous owner had little experience with dry sump bikes/engines. When I bought mine it was a quart over as the person filling checked it cold and not warm but all was...

    I had priced a couple of used units and they were a couple of hundred and then it occurred to me that those may fail too just like mine did with only 3k miles.

    I think it could be the circuit board. My 2005 worked fine and then one day the odometer display decided it would start showing dashes instead of numbers. Then it became so that the trip would work...

    An oil thread is a good way to revitalize interest in the single site again. It always stimulates a good conversation.

    I selected the Touratech and partly because at the time when the bike first came out the BMW site was not specific that there would be an upper set and the Touratech site gave full detail of the...

    When I had the side panel off I highlighted the fill level lines with a sharpie marker so that I could see the lines through the view slot. I did the same on the fF650gs too. It is just convenient.
