Now THAT is a pretty bike!!
I'd just like to get called once. :). Nobody ever breaks down in central IL
Watch those metzlers close, mine went from perfect looking to showing cords in less than 75 miles. (3874 miles total)
Fwiw - blackstone labs will do an analysis of your old oil for $23 and tell you in ppm what metals are present. Very useful for detecting bearing failure, etc. they will also compare your...
I haven't but they have armrests on the newer k1600gtl's that I believe can be fit to the gt - look pretty stout the ones I've seen in dealership. Fwiw
Fwiw - my stop n go compressor came with battery alligator clips in addition to the outlet. Pretty easy to just lift the seat.
I've found the IL side is better to Galena, and then I cross over to the Iowa side up to lacrosse. From there IMHO it's somewhat of a crapshoot. The first 20 miles or so north of lacrosse suck...
Lol - parking garages exist in FL don't they? :)
We were just playing with this on my brothers bike and it's really slick. Just give a fast firm pull on the front brake when you're stopped and it'll engage and it automatically disengages when you...
Did you check snobum's pages? I think I remember reading that he was a rebuild fan but it's been a long time so don't quote me on it.
Fwiw - you can rebuild the Bosch. Interesting In that Oak doesn't like the Valeo, but I think some of the guru's on airheads@micapeak like them. (Search the archives to be 100% sure)
What he said! ;)
I do ride an airhead and my 33hp KLR all the time too. . . .each has a very distinct purpose.
Now what I would love to see is an F800ST that my height challenged wife could...
My brother just got one and I'm looking for a good thread on changing the oil and final drive oil along with torque values. Anyone seen anything like that or a link to a place to buy factory service...
If I remember right motorcycle news did same test and came to same conclusion. . .
What he said! :)
That being said I carry a Cruz toolkit for the bmw with upgraded vice grips and a better flashlight. I use it regularly but not on the K1600. :). I carry a stop-n-go plugger...
Hope you post a trip thread with pics! :). A father / son combo did this last summer on a GTL and another bike and they got a flat on way home. I think if it was me I'd look into staging a pair...
+1 on Caswell - just did a Norton tank with their "dragons blood" kit and it turned out real nice and was pretty damn easy -'prep is the key, do all the steps exactly as they state.
Large cardboard box for a big chest freezer fell off if truck going opposite direction and slid into
my lane. Didn't have time to swerve left or right so went straight on thru. Really glad there...
On the mountain above Copper Harbor MI
I just did a frame up restoration on a 74 R90/6 - looks great and I'm very proud of it, but I'll never get out of it what I've put into it. :). (Paint by Kent Holt at Athens BMW)...
I can't remember if I voted on that one or not, but mine falls on the good side of the equation. . . Although I got rid of the crap oem metzler z8's and have never looked back. (Showing cords at...
Sorry guys but I already bought the winning ticket. . . Move along.. . Nothing to see here folks.
Would LOVE to win that GS
BMW communicator mutes like that and has volume control via thumb wheel as well
