    The engine rotates clockwise as viewed from the front. The counter rotating output shaft/clutch assembly is what rotates CCW as viewed from the front. This distinction may prove important when...

    Correct on the valve check intervals and throttle body sync. Also there is no belt drive for the alternator to replace. The spark plugs call for 12000 mile intervals but there are only two to replace...

    I had the Metal Mule Balanced system on my F800GS. They were the best panniers I have ever found. Anodized finish, 2mm aluminum with rivet and adhesive seam construction, and the best top seal in the...

    My owner's manual for the 2013 GSW states 5W40 for the WC boxer. I have heard the same thing about the name change in the recommended Castrol oil. Legal issues with Mobil 1 forced the change in the...

    Cam Timing Good Result

    Glad to hear you had a positive experience with your dealer. I mentioned this problem to my dealer and the service manager had a glazed look when cam timing was mentioned. I used to train technicians...

    My 2013 GSW build date 1/3/13 had the surging issue at low speeds and light throttle. I obtained the required special tools to check and adjust cam timing. At 9000 miles I checked and sure enough the...

    This is true, AMS oil, Silkolene, and Molylube are a few oils that met the spec. I simply buy the Castrol Racing RS from Amazon in 6 liter cases. That works out to be $7.25 per quart delivered to my...

    This oil does not meet the spec published. For the GSW the manual calls for 5W-40 API SJ / JASO MA2

    I don't think Shell Rotella meets that spec. BTW, BMW isn't the only manuafacturer calling for...

    It is true the clutch master cylinder level will increase as the clutch wears, just the opposite of brakes. My clutch was overfilled and I removed several ounces to bring the clutch reservoir to half...

    The tank bag I ordered when I bought the new GS in April showed up at the dealer this past weekend while I was at the rally. Upon getting home I was pleased to see it was worth the wait. The fit and...

    Congratulations Jerry.

    By that time frame I might see my tank bag on a month. I was hoping to have it in time for the Salem Rally. Kind of gave up on that notion.

    Picked up my GSW on 4-30-13. Ordered and paid for the BMW small tank bag at the same time. Still no word on the tank bag. 2 months back ordered, really? Glad I ordered the panniers, top box, engine...
