    I'm not sure if the OP has verified his ball joints are worn for sure or not. It is easy to do; just jack the front end to get the weight off the tire, then see if there is any play in the...

    I did the work myself to change my ball joint, but you do need some tools for the job that would not be typically found in many home shops. Specifically you need two very large sockets or wrenches to...

    Had to replace the ball joints on my 08 GT this year as well at only 35000 kms. The bike was always very twitchy feeling and unstable in corners. I was ready to trade it in on a new RT when I read...

    I'm still having issues with my ESA and I am seriously thinking about going with the Wilbers. They look like pretty good value for a custom set up.

    Too tight or too loose will accelerate the wear of a chain. Regular attention to cleaning, lubing and adjusting are part of chain maintenance routines. The F800GS does require a bit more slack than...

    I think there is more to it than just the numbers. The 800 carries it's weight lower, at least the fuel weight. It also has more suspension travel and a 21" front wheel which makes it a bit better in...

    We finished out trip a couple days earlier than the time we had allotted. Not because of the pending weather downturn, but fortunate in light of it. We just rode a few more miles each day than...

    I was on my F800GS commuting to work for a night shift and was stopped in a line of traffic waiting for a light. From the car beside me, a couple young guys are leaning out the windows and praising...

    That assumes they have the capability to use modern technology. More likely boasting over beers in some dingy bar.

    The mounting bracket for the BMW navigator should be available separately and mounts in the center of the bars replacing the plastic cover for the adjusting bolts. I looked at getting one for my GT,...

    On my K1200GT, I find the comfort setting too soft most of the time. I typically use the Normal setting. I have just done some ergonomic modifications to it; I installed Wunderlich Bar risers and...

    Rode to work today in the rain. Would have even if it wasn't RTW day.

    Scooter Canonball Run: Hyder-New Orleans

    So yesterday on my way home from a nice overnighter trip out into the West Kootenay region of BC, I was headed up highway 95 from Kimberly to Radium and met a scooter heading south. Nothing too...

    I decided against the Klim Goretex suits because I don't want to swelter inside it when riding off road. Yes they have venting, but that only works if you have good airflow, which I often do not...

    Nope, I rode a demo bike on the weekend and it had the low seat on it when I got there and they switched it for the high seat for me. It was just the front portion that was different.

    I definitely tried the Dynamic mode on the RT I rode in the morning, you should have given it a go. There was a distinct difference in the engine response and sound. I was pretty impressed with the...

    Yesterday I had my opportunity to try out the new RT. Gotta say I'm left with a serious dilemma. I was very impressed with the RT, good manners with low speed handling and stable at speed. We didn't...

    I'm riding the RT in the morning. We'll see if I need to talk to my banker afterwards. ;-) (not really, she has no illusion of control over my spending habits).

    That's how I'd treat it if I bought it new, so no big deal really. It has full warranty and likely has had a full round of servicing. I'll be giving a new RT a good hard ride next weekend on a demo...

    The later K1200GTs and the K1300GTs do not have the servo brakes and are very straight forward to do a fluid flush on. There's nothing really different about it than any other ABS equipped bike. The...
