    Hard to say what the failure might be - but a scan of active inputs to the instrument cluster computer with a GS-911 might be revealing. I believe there is a calibration function for the...

    I'm at 82,000 miles and have never used Seafoam. Used Techron once or twice. Just because I had it. Used StarTron once when I went away for 6 weeks. What I'm not doing seems to be working about as...

    The crankcase breather from the port side cylinder (at least on the early hexheads) leads directly to the airbox. If there is a lot of oil vapor floating around in the engine, or any blowby on the...

    Bet it didn't include replacing the big bearing.. :) That's actually a real issue considering how hot some of the drives are reported to get (probably caused by dragging rear brake pads/caliper.) ...

    Can't speak to "normal degradation" but I rather doubt it. Has anyone used Loctite on the windshield mounting screws? It does have the bad habit of outgassing and causing these sort of problems -...

    You may want to check some aftermarket vendors - one or more may make a more adjustable clutch lever with a bigger dog-leg in it (making it effectively just what you're looking for..)

    If the failure was in the large bearing on the crown-gear, your oil changes did nothing to lessen the chance of failure since that bearing is external (as discussed above) to the drive and is NOT...

    As Larry pointed out (and I think I briefly mentioned earlier) - the pins ARE greased from the factory, with a very small smear of grease. Too much grease is probably worse than too little.

    I'd...

    Given the difference in price between EBC and BMW factory pads, and since many BMW riders have ridden EBC pads some long distances without issues - EBC seems a winner to me.

    I think the warm rear drive is more a symptom of brake drag - not the other way around. If the rotor gets hot - the only heat conduction path it has is through the rear-drive center "crown" gear (the...

    Interesting temp comparison. Wonder if this was the temperature after some set operating conditions? Even in real life :) the rear brakes on the R1200x bikes tends to run warm, even if not used. The...

    If your GS display is like my Roadster display (I believe they're pretty much identical) there are two larger hash marks on the scale. The bottom one is where the oil cooler thermostat opens, the top...

    12 years from "In-Service Date" (date the bike left the showroom..) Yes - this has been discussed quite a bit. You might want to add your data to the sticky about fuel-strip failures, and read on...

    wyman, actually - thanks to the blessing of modern engine electronics - it is very unlikely that it will cause a lean mixture. The dual O2 sensors on the R1200 engine are active almost full time (not...

    Your early failures sound like luck of the draw.. not fuel additives. As far as your third strip - sounds like it was replaced after BMW pulled all the in-stock strips from dealers and replaced them...

    I'd suggest then that you look into some good ear plugs. Makes it a pleasure to ride with a boxer..

    What was used for an ambient light sensor was probably an LED - they actually put out voltage when light falls on them. Kisan uses LED's for the light sensor on their headlight modulator.

    Are you certain this is abby-normal? If the bike is new to you - BMWs do have some driveline lash that exhibits itself as a knock when you roll on or let off the throttle, especially at low speeds. ...

    This is one where using a GS-911 might be helpful. It sounds like a short circuit somewhere that is causing the ZFE to turn off the headlight circuits. The GS-911 should tell you this. As with any...

    That will work - it will likely cause the engine to run rougher if the coil is good - or stall. The steppers should try to maintain the idle speed. The one that doesn't cause a change in the engine...
