    The only worthwhile replacement would be an upgrade to HID lighting.
  2. I would be doubtful that 2 injectors failed at...

    I would be doubtful that 2 injectors failed at the same time. It's more likely something upstream to both injectors has failed. I would suspect the hall effect canister which triggers the injectors.
  3. I guess I should add that I did not use loctite...

    I guess I should add that I did not use loctite on assembly. Without loctite on the pin, I assumed it would easily move when torquing the bolt to 160NM.
  4. I am finishing up my first oilhead spline lube,...

    I am finishing up my first oilhead spline lube, which included a clutch replacement and both rear main seals. I had lots of experience with my R80 with spline lubes and head work. Non the less...

    Yes, the "wooden brake pads" are necessary. They are needed to ensure the pistons are fully retracted. If not, old fluid will remain in the cylinder behind the pistons and will not be flushed out.

    The 1150's don't have the ABS flashing lights as a low battery warning. Instead they have the digital clock reset. It was one of those undocumented improvements that came out of BMW engineering!

    This is great information, thanks. Interestingly, I do not measure a gap in the relief area of .025. The interference make sense though.

    I am in the middle of a spline lube. My plan is to replace the clutch disk, plate and cover, but keep the existing clutch housing. The housing seems to be flat, not perfect, but close. The housing...

    Thanks a lot Paul, this is a great explanation. Needless to say, I decided to pick up dial gauge and stand to have a closer look at the clutch housing. I guess I am wrong, but I tend to assume...

    The iABS units are not like other ABS units. The unit resets and does a power on test every time power is applied. The fault you have is not a fault that is stored in the computer. It's a fault the...

    Paul, thanks for the update.

    Very interesting. Linear wear along the shaft. Perhaps it has been mentioned before, but this seems to be solid evidence that the Non fully engaged clutch hub of...

    Paul, your bike has considerable mileage. Quite likely more then most of us will ever obtain. I am very curious if your seeing even wear along the length of the spline? Or like many of us, more wear...
  13. The new glass didn't go in as far as the old one,...

    The new glass didn't go in as far as the old one, and didn't seat exactly flush with the surrounding engine case, as the old one did. I put this off to it being a new part number. ...

    Caught me handed! The seal wasn't leaking. I am one of those, while I am in there, I might as well ..... ! The bike is a 2004 with 75k. It was simply too hard to resist replacing it.

    I haven't...
  15. I am in the same situation. Spline lube in...

    I am in the same situation. Spline lube in process. Except I am replacing failed rear drive bushings with the stock bearings. I have no idea what BMW's current recommendation is concerning loctite. ...
  16. Is this main seal defective?

    Folks,

    I am in the process of a spline lube and decided to replace the crankshaft main seals on my R1150RS at the same time. The seals were purchased from an online vendor. The inner seal which...
  17. IMHO I think the problem is due to the lack of a...

    IMHO I think the problem is due to the lack of a flywheel. When the clutch is pulled and the throttle closed, the engine rpm's drop like a stone very quickly. It's easier to get a nice shift at...

    I believe Anton stated that he has replaced entire clutch assemblies on bike's with badly worn splines. He also stated those same bike's have not been coming back for rework. Other then a few cases...
  19. I don't think you have anything to worry about. ...

    I don't think you have anything to worry about. With 72k miles, I measured 6mm of play. Your measuring a mere 1.5 in 30k. It seems to me you got one of the good bikes! The black dust is from the...

    I reread the original post, and I think I now understand where my confusion lies. I ran to the basement to measure the spline length of the shaft.

    shaft splines 24mm
    hub splines 22mm
    hub...

    I called my local BMW car dealer for a parts quote the other day. Me thinks BMW makes him sell bikes as well! Perhaps you guys on the west coast get a better deal? I rounded down so I may be off a...
  22. I believe we are not measuring the same parts! ...

    I believe we are not measuring the same parts! My measurement was of the spline collar of the clutch plate, not the shaft. The usable spline in the collar is about 22mm. I also measured the unworn...

    As I have the part available, I decided to verify the measurements of the splines, and the unworn portion. Total spline width appears to be 22mm, but the unworn section is 4mm, not 6. Adding a 6mm...

    [QUOTE=R100RTurbo;912237]Just when it seems the BMW clutch design has taken about as many hits possible, perhaps add this to the collection of factors - weakness of the plates adjacent to the clutch...

    I would suspect the hydraulic clutch, like the iABS power brakes looked like a great idea from a marketing perspective! Reliability and longevity certainly wasn't a consideration.
