Re: R1200ST

It's a relatively straight forward job with plenty of info on t'internet. One part needed ( a section of brake pipe with unions at each end) which can be obtained from parts people like Motorworks or Motobins. Give them a call to talk it over if you are considering doing the job.

Re: Alternator Upgrade

As Rob says, unless you are planning on adding stuff which will make significant demands on the charging system, then I'd go for sh oem stuff. On my old GS with original system, I can run it with headlight AND heated jacket and no sign of any stress on the system.

Re: Rant alert

Tried the site that caused the rant Rob. Apparently no surcharge for this part of Scotia? Metzeler Z8 interact for £104 seems pretty good. Thanks!

Re: R1200ST

What do you know about the service history? Unless you know it's been done recently then replace the brake fluid in the system asap. Like all BMs of that era, the power braking system can fail and especially if the fluid changes are not done as poer the manual. It may have happened already of course...

Don't have a problem with tech on a bike. It can save lives.The problem is the extra weight it adds. Granted, not such an issue on a HD!

Re: Covid-19 Important Information

Self isolating by bike ride seems eminently sensible to me. Even if it involves a small group, provided the individuals stand several feet apart during breaks in the ride. I can see tartan vacuum flasks coming back into fashion too! If HMG needs to further tighten up then that's fine too, if Parliam...

Re: Northern Meets 2020

Of course, pending any lockdown ordered by UKG/SG, if riders wish to self isolate via a ride to a remote-ish place which is likely to be deserted anyway ... :cool:

A pal is touring Scotia in his camper, so I'm heading north tomorrow for a meet up. Given the population density up by, it's as close to self isolation as I can manage!

Re: Another clutch - 97 r1100r

You can have a look at wear on the clutch friction plate by removing the starter. You should also be able to check for any evidence of oil leaks. If you need to replace the clutch, it's a relatively straight forward job and you could get away with simply replacing the friction plate. However, I'd ch...

Re: ABS 2 R1100RT

So, to re-cap ...

1. Check the battery and replace it if it's showing evidence of old age / poor performance.
2. If that doesn't fix the problem (it almost certainly will) then pull the starter motor and give the throw out mechanism and cyclic gears a good clean before replacing it.
