    Pretty good, thanks! :D You are right about the splines being dry. The issue is fixed, the bike shifts fine now (for an oilhead), and for a lot less $$$ than I anticipated. And since no nasty...

    I don't have the bill here, so am not sure if the hourly labor rate was specified, but the total was in the $300-400 range, including a brake flush (non-ABS bike).

    Sorry to divert this back to the original topic :blush, but I ended up having Beemers Uber Alles (http://www.beemersuberalles.com/) in VA do the spline lube about a month ago. That worked out great,...

    Thanks norton. I for sure never cleaned the shift linkage myself (does riding in rain count?), but am sure that the clutch is well adjusted, since I replaced the clutch cable about a month ago and...

    It all depends on your perspective, true! Note that I was born and raised in the Netherlands, where 120 miles is the other side of the country (east-west you're actually one country over already, or...

    Thanks chiba, I was actually just over on bmwbmw.org to post in a thread about an upcoming Tech day, a forum which you apparently moderate... :) Thanks for the Beemers Uber Alles link, I'll ask them...

    Hmmm. Quite a good point this is. :) I've even been a bmwbmw.org member for years (probably because :bikes), and still am, but I rarely visit the site and never went to any bmwbmw function. :blush...

    Thanks, yes, good point, I did send him an email for an estimate yesterday, actually. (He did not reply yet.) He's not really close, about 120 miles from me or so, but I am considering it.

    Eight hours, I see, thanks... I try to do a fair amount of my vehicle maintenance/repairs myself, but am doing other stuff right now (=building retaining walls + 3-mo daughter :) ), and cannot get...

    I'm not sure, it probably depends on the thermal expansion rate of the various components involved... What is described here seems pretty similar to what I'm experiencing. Also, I did replace the...
  11. I'm still a bit in denial, but... R1100R spline lube cost?

    Hi,

    Lately downshifting (mainly 3->2) has become very difficult when my bike is cold (first 2-3 miles of riding). This is a 2000 R1100R with 59k miles. When the bike is warmed up shifting is fine,...

    I took the picture without flash since the light coming in through the window on the left nicely highlighted the beveled corner. It looks normal (to me) from every other angle. It might have been...

    BMW OEM brake pads asymmetric?

    I just started on what was supposed to be a quick front brake pad replacement on my R1100R. All went fine, until I noticed that the two new pads are not completely identical. These are the BMW OEM...

    Thanks for the post. :thumb That's what I found too. Problem is that the parts fiche only shows the BMW part numbers (62142306127 and 07119978279 respectively), not a generic bulb type description...

    Instrument cluster bulb types 2000 R1100R

    Hi,

    I have a 2000 R1100R on which one of the instrument cluster back lights went out a while back. Maybe the low fuel light as well, it didn't come on a few days ago even though I'm sure that the...

    Does the picture exceed the maximum file size? I seem to remember that a while back this site did not give a proper error message for that. 800x600 & 156 kb seems to be the max.

    Dang. I passed less than 25 km from your new place last week (on route 8, going to Shediac)! Glad to hear that you're OK, too bad we didn't get to see you in Niagara Falls last month! Say Hi to the...
