    I had mine replaced as a preventative measure during an extended warranty teardown of the tranny. It had 113,000 mostly cross country miles on it at the time. Normal wear and tear with plenty of...

    Have you considered that you may be experiencing an intermittent or incipient driveshaft u-joint failure? Here's a reference to that issue that I experienced some time ago....
  3. Tranny Whine or Tonal

    Repairs are complete. Paul had it right. The warranty covered most of the cost of repairs despite the high mileage. Extra cost was incurred because I replaced the clutch plate and some ancillary...
  4. Interim Update

    The shop drained and inspected the tranny lube and found metal. So, they did it again to verify their findings, and it did. Next week they will begin the disassembly process to determine the extent...

    On a 200 mile club ride last weekend that was fairly benign I did not notice any whine to the same intensity of that in the original post. The environment of the day could have made a difference in...

    Thanks for the additional comments. I neglected to mention that the driveshaft rear U-joint failed at 85,000 miles and a new shaft was installed. The final drive was carefully checked at that time,...

    Ayres Tours

    A few years ago my wife and I did a three week Ayres tour of both the North and South Islands of New Zealand. We had booked first class reservations (using FF miles) nearly a year in advance, so we...

    I've had some tire whines over the years with this bike too. But, this time the frequency of the sound does not vary appreciably with changes in speed and, unloading the gears by de-clutching the...
  9. 2005 R1200RT with 112K miles; Prominent Tranny Whine

    Over the weekend I put 850 miles on the old steed. As the ride progressed I became aware of a consistent loud whine which seemed to be coming from the tranny. Understand that I couldn't point to the...

    No problems on my 2005RT fuel strip. 110K miles. I've never run the tank dry and use ethanol free gas when possible.

    North from the Spacecoast

    There's one more lighthouse along the East Coast of Florida and it's a beauty. The St. Johns river light started out in 1829 and was soon replaced due to erosion, then later replaced again in 1857 by...

    North from the Spacecoast

    In 1954 this lighthouse replaced a Lightship that had been anchored 7 miles off shore since 1929. It lacks the beauty and style of many other Florida lighthouses. Its location on the Naval Station...

    North from the Spacecoast

    I've bypasses the Cape Canaveral Light because it may not be visible without access to the AF Station. So, the next one to the north is south of Dayton Beach on A1A. It's a fair trek down to it, but...
  15. Scotland

    You'll love the land and the people. I haven't been there for over 30 years, but did spend a lot of time there in the 70's. Getting from island to island can be difficult. There aren't many ferrys,...

    That 276 is actually a 376 with XM, and I think it's about the finest unit out there. In fact, I couldn't find one on EBAY so I bought 378 to replace the 376 which no longer has a functioning power...

    Another Central West Coast (FL) Light

    Not your typical lighthouse structure, the Tierra Verde Lighthouse looks more like a house than a lighthouse. It is a private aid to navigation marking the headquarters to Tampa Bay Watch, a...

    The pictures are merely an incentive to ride Florida, and, as such, I guess one could say that the subject was BOTH the bike and the lighthouse. I love the one posted by Gene T of Jupiter Light, but...

    Keep it fun and find the light

    I like it! There are no winners in this contest, except those who participate; and no losers, except those who who don't. Its about touring the state and having a goal, or reason, for the ride.
