    I guess I'm out in left field all alone! When you post a comment or picture on the internet, you can't get it back. Once it's out there you lose control of it. Someone may use it and abuse it. It's...

    Perhaps I own a small side business repairing motorcycles, and I have a website. I decide to post a picture of myself with my BMW bike and the roundel can be seen. What then? It's my picture, my...

    So now I am curious. My BMW came with at least 4 rondels. Who owns them, BMW or me? Since they sold it to me, and I think I rightfully own it, am I not free to do with it as I please?

    Right on. If someone was trying to sell a knock off car or bike with a BMW logo, that's a an entirely different ball of wax. Selling a handful of toys doesn't compete with BMW, and they likely...

    I would also agree with Rogers recommendations.
    I would also add motobins depending on what you might need. Surprisingly fast delivery considering the parts have to cross an ocean.

    BMWNA has no standing in Canada. Why the OP called them is puzzling. If they have lawyers, they can keep keep on playing solitaire because they can't practice in any Canadian court without passing...

    I would just use it. You may fly under the radar and they don't notice. If not you get some nasty and threatening letters. So what.

    Check the plastic all around the circumference of where the cover closes and seals with the case. Check for cracks or other damage, etc. Pay attention near the bottom and at the hinges. I recently...

    Years ago I replaced all the bleed screws in my 1150RS with speed bleeders. I didn't find them very effective. When bleeding, more fluid seemed to leak out the base then out the valve on top. When...

    I have one of these on my 1150RS. It works well and hasn't fallen off. Then again I did follow the instructions and used loctite. It's not made of rubber, but there is a foam pad under the stands...

    $2700 for a clutch replacement? Is this correct and not a typo?

    Well done! That make's a lot of sense. I was wondering how any single ball bearing could have possibly fallen out of any of the cage's from any of the shaft bearings!

    Maybe it?s just a matter of perspective of what BMW is today from what it was in the past? For example. Back in the 80's BMW advertised longevity and durability. I believe they even showed riders...

    BMW reported sales of approximately 75 billions Euros in 2013. That's about $100B in US currency. Do you really thing they care that much about selling a handful of Jackets and boots?

    It is my understanding that it's against Harley code to wave at non Harley riders. Those that do, likely have poor eyesight or have simply not noticed what you are riding. The cylinders on my...

    I honestly don't see much of a market in North America for a 300CC motorcycle that will likely cost $6000.

    Very interesting. I have been considering the idea of sending my shocks in for a rebuild. When I spoke with John at the bike show, he had a Elkins rep in his booth. Nice looking shock, with both...

    Hi,

    This past winter I replaced the brake lines on my R1150RS with Speiglers. The bike has iABS. Now that I have has a chance to ride the bike, I noticed that the brakes seem to have much more...

    There is a shock shop in Ontario which will service stock BMW shocks. I spoke with the owner at a bike show last year. He did not claim that he could make a stock unit perform like an aftermarket...

    The only worthwhile replacement would be an upgrade to HID lighting.

    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.

    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.

    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.
