    My son's K bike does this as a routine - but usually only visible when in cooler temps in the morning. White smoke for about 5 minutes or so then it goes away. I doubt that it is moisture in pipes...

    I had my oil light come on - only after trailering the bike down from Ohio - mostly in rain. Though the bike has been ridden in the rain, with no problems, my oil light came on the first time I...

    Two ideas to add here.

    A standard screw extractor as shown by Paul above do often enlarge a screw so that it actually gets tighter in the hole rather than looser, BUT if you can when drilling the...

    That was the case with my old R500/2. When adjusted to factory specs, would not idle well, and would stall, and then not re-start when hot, especially on very hot 80 Deg.+ days!

    I disagree with your above assessment. There were quite a few others who had problems - all when there was a software issue on YOUR end! I think those managing the forum software had some sort of...

    I kind of liked the 1st & 2nd sets shown in pics. But I like the set shown in the first posting best. I'm hoping someone will recognize and let us all know what they are!

    I never used the hammer directly on or to the rim. I always "spread" out the impact with a carefully placed wood block or 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 stick (1/2 of a 2 x 4). Worked very well. I also remember...

    I have the BMW factory grips on mine, and I do like them as they provide several diameter (OD) choices as I am riding which helps me avoid fatigue at one diameter. However, the ones shown in the pic...

    Ditto.

    I can't remember when I locked the gas cap last. Besides, I have heard horror stories where the cap (acting like in locking position) just "spun" but would not unscrew the threaded...
