Re: K1300GT Brake failure

K13GT will be new New evolution ABS that did away with the servo Sadly what happens is the brushes for the ABS motor bounce back in and stick in their holders and there is no power circuit present for the motor and that immediately flags a failure BUT in better news there is no residual braking issu...

Re: Gearbox Issue Explained

You are right 20W50 more viscous than 10W40

Usually if its a Wet Clutch Bike You have to stick to the recommended "usually" 10 W 40 and also it has to be Suitable for a wet clutch

It makes more sense to split the cases and have a look there may be chipped teeth

Sorry for being late back to the party Are the 1100 infills only foam where the K100 was a plastic blade with a foam edge ??

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

Hi Jay,

According to the BMW manual, it should be 1.5% +/- 0.5%

Mike
Yes that seemed familiar indeed thanks Mike

We used to set them 2 to 2.25% to negate the tendency to surge with a lean mixture

If it has a Lamda probe it likely won;t have the CO pot anyway

Re: K1100RS Idle Speed

K series Brick is Via the brass screws "BUT" there's a method you have to set the throttle cable balance across all throttle bodies. The screw at the rail end that "seems" to adjust the idle speed is for set up only i.e. to bring up rpm enough to set the throttle balance It should always be set back...

Re: RT written off....

I always find that the most profitable is to not involve your insurance, deal directly with the other party's and take a payment in lieu of repairs rather than letting them write your vehicle off.
I suspect with the bang that Pete had?

Re: MOT question re KPH speedo

Try that schit here and you are screwed

MUST have Mph and Kph or be switchable between the two

an MPH only speedo is acceptable pre 86 (I think) OR if it has a DOT approval letter from Ducati Which caused a huge stir over here for a while as they only had MPH clocks

Stop topping up your Oil so often ? ;) Halfway on the dipstick down as far as 1/3 up on the dipstick is plenty These engines tend to burn oil to a level and then it stays there between services Also if you use fine oils instead of Dinosaur 20W50??
