A local to me franchise conglomerate which has BMW also has Can-Am. Talked with the Service Manager who oversees a few of their facilities one of which is Can-Am. He told me tried very hard to like...
I gave up when my F800ST had unresolvable stalling issues and traded it in on the '08 RT I have now. Oh, yeah, the dealer which sold it to me couldn't fix it, screwed me on the trade-in and now has...
He was from a bygone era in Hollywood. One which will never be seen again what with all of the Political Correctness.
I have had Mapquest bookmarked in my browser for years but my default has always been Google Maps. But they have made a lot of what I feel are poor designing changes. Plus they have lost some...

It's a modern BMW so it'll probably have warranty problems like a good percentage of their bikes these days.
Thanks as usual. Right now I need help getting to the lock cylinder. Not sure if the handle assembly comes off and if so how. I haven't gotten the inner liner of the lower assembly off yet. That...
I have in my possession a 28L Top Case with a lock cylinder and no key. The top is unlocked. I am trying to remove the lock cylinder so I can re-key it to my ignition.

We often get Oilhead models in for service with very noisy valve gear. The on-line video technician training from BMW...
It's not rattling on startup. It starts to rattle when warmed up. But this is the kind of information I'm looking for.
I've noticed the same thing. An ad will show up but says it's expired.
It was there before the service as well. I wouldn't guess it as a vacuum leak as it has a very mechanical sound. Plus my guess is it would be heard when starting cold as well as when at operating...
... to steal a quote from comedian Henry Cho.
On my newly purchased '08 RT with 26,000 miles I am noticing a clicking noise that sounds like valve tapping or that noise and engine makes when low...
I've never done anymore then a day trip with a pillion or another bike. I like it that way. Don't have to ride down to someone else's bladder and butt tolerances. If ya know what I mean :-)
