Yes, it's a nice idea but isn't even worth the $5 for what it does....

I just purchased a 2018 G310GS. I'm 250 lbs. plus I have a top 30 liter top case. I'm curious: 1) What do heavier riders or heavier loaded bikers set their preload at: stage 5 or stage 10 or higher? 2) What front suspension are heavier loaders using? The current front end is ve...

If you're going to replace the fuel filter consider replacing the in-tank fuel hoses as well. Beemer boneyard has a kit with the necessary hose pieces and proper screw type clamps (as opposed to regular hose clamps which are not recommended or the OEM oetiker style clamps which a...

Thanks for the replies I will definitely look into that mc rebuild kit and system bleed. Don't have the $$ for SS brake lines at the moment, but will be considered. Haven't really looked for the peg yet, but will try Ebay and online. Going to replace fuel filter and plugs an...

Tracy- I have a 96 R1100RT as well and just last weekend did new SS brake lines, new MC rebuild and brake system bleed. Took a while but not very difficult. I'd do all 3 if I were you, maybe add new pads too. Clean and lubricate the pins. Foot peg- is it possible to patch it up ...

That's a very comprehensive kit! I'm pretty sure the one I used was just the piston and o-rings...and was maybe as much money....

Nice to finally see some new players in the street legal 400ish CC spot. I've been hunting the ever elusive, reasonably priced, street legal WR450 for quite a while. Hard to justify spending more on a dirt bike with turn signals than I did on my 1200GS. Still happy to see the ...

Just read on bmwlt.com that it could be because of the locking mechanism needing to be lubed. I have recently been having some difficulty with opening it on occasions (along with the ignition) and the dealer suggested some wd-40 in it. But isn't the locking mechanism not open to ...

I just rebuilt the front master on my '96 R850R. Here's the kit, got it off eBay. It says clutch kit on the box, but the instructions (good quality) are for a brake master. https://www.ebay.com/itm/192504518231...

Good evening everyone, Went to Morton's for an 18k service last weekend (2014 R1200RTW). On the way back fueled up and for the next 20-30 miles or so the smell was pretty strong (especially in the city, then disappeared). Today, a week later, I filled it up again (at the gas s...

I would definitely start with new plugs, valve adjustment and throttle synch before chasing anything else - it's pretty easy to do all of that. Sorry about the out of stock. Did you get on their list? eBay next unless you want to pay retail (I had to replace the left side on th...

Beemer Boneyard for the foot peg. They also used to have rebuild kits for the master cylinder - not sure if hey do still or not. Probably a good idea to do new steel brake lines if yours are 22 year old rubber lines. Common failure for the headlight is the switch gear - gets fu...

My 1996 is being a pain in the butt this week. 1) Developed a front master cylinder leak over winter, stock lines I believe, every time I pull the lever I notice brake fluid on the bottom of the assembly. 2) A stutter or sputter at idle and at mid range RPM. Caused it to stall t...
