    The filter is intimidating because it's in the tank, but it's not hard. Next time you're low on fuel (so you won't have to stick your hands into a bunch of gas) it takes 10 minutes. Remove the 4...

    Your suggestion of a pinched or obstructed vent hose under the tank leading to vacuum lock is intriguing.

    I don't think you're supposed to lube BMW clutch cables... They have a lining (teflon?) that doesn't play well with lube. Just grease the ball ends.

    I broke the "5" off the K75 badge this morning. What would be the best adhesive product to use to re-attach it? Or should I remove the whole thing and order a new one?

  21. Yeah

    That's definitely part of it. I commute in Chicago, so there's a lot of stop-and-go. When you're creeping along at 5 mph it's hard to brake w/ vigor, especially if you're 2-up and trying to ride...
