Hi

It usually turns out that a choke is not closing properly, Spray with WD40, exercise and it's Ok for a few months

Hope yours is as simple

Hi Phil is right but they feel worlds apart. The RS has a forward leaning riding position even with the handlebar risers so I always found myself peering up and got a bad neck (& a wet right boot) which I don't get with RTs Picky point I know but I think they have different cables and brake hoses Ge...

Hi
mine is back from the menders today. It turned out to be a cable that had become tight in use after only a few thousand miles. It still becomes tight when hot, if you can get it hot in this weather but is now easier than it was, we will wait for summer and see how it goes

Hi you seem right about it working at a smaller size. I was concerned that the slots on the front of the fairing would be too thick to reproduce on a small scale eg on an enameleded badge. I understand Martins point but with 1, 2, 3 or 4 cylinders, Faired and unfaired, R, RT, RS & C, Boxers & Bricks...

Hi
I won't bite, after all I'm interested in free advice.

The cable was replaced 2000 miles ago

How is the trust bearing replaced? What do they cost?

Gearbox problem, paralever

Hi When I set off the clutch is heavy but everythig else is normal. After 10 miles or so I can not select neutral when stopped and when going gear selection is not a sweet as normal. I also get the feeling that the cluch is not quite disengauging even the lever is back to the bars. I have been told ...

Hi bought the bike last spring, never a problem until after I had the cable changes (but I think that is coincidence) because the place that did it for me has never had a job go wrong in 10 years of spannering for me. It always had a VERY heavy cluch action (not as bad as a GUZZI) until the cable wa...

Hi
had the single disk 80 and the double disk 100, no difference the way I ride

Even the single disk is a good stopper, maybe I just don't ride hard enough. The 100GS only has 1 brembo disk as I remember and that's not a 4 pot caliper


What disk(s) have you got Boxerman?

Hi I don't have quite the two bikes you do but a near approximation. I have R100R and R100RT, twin shock. The older bike has a better engine, more go but it takes longer to get to the revs. The RT can be used any weather but you get warm if the if temp is high. The R100R just needs "thinking" to cha...
