    They (my friends) checked the Iron Horse; afraid it's a bit, uh, steep. We're trying to keep the cost down; we're staying 3 nights, and want to use the cash for cruising the area, food, etc.

    Sounds more like a gas problem to me. I've got an 04 1150GS and my 'surging' isn't nearly that pronounced, but it's there and I've learned to live with it. Basically in my case it's noticeable in...

    My two cents;

    Hendrix, solo in 'All Along the Watchtower'. The man and guitar were one in the same. He wasn't playing guitar, he was the guitar.

    Maybe I should ask this slightly different. I'm quite sure, as with anything, assuring lubrication is there and clean is foremost. What I was questioning however is more about the actual mechanical...

    Guess that holding it steady at 3500, 4500, 5500, or 6500, was my issue. Maybe I should try holding it steady at Redline. Bet that's what I've been doing wrong.

    Sorry; but it's the bike. No doubt...

    Torque wrench for the wheel bolts ain't a bad idea either. Awfully easy to go either too loose or overtighten.

    Hmmm, Maybe MJM is onto something. I do indeed run synthetic in it. Use the Redline brand. Maybe it'd be worth switching back to dino to see what if any difference it'd make.

    Fuel filter; Is it really necessary?

    Open question. I finally got around today to changing out my 1150GS fuel filter at 33000; past the recommended mileage. Not to much fun I might say, but I got it done nonetheless.
