Re: Can't get neutral when hot

BMW may have revised their end float clearances due to the fact that there is no such thing as 'absolute zero' on which to base measurements. The variables of cover warp, pocket depth variation within the one pocket, shim plate to bearing depth variables on the same bearing, and shim thickness varia...

Re: Can't get neutral when hot

As already mentioned, try clutch adjustment first. Half a turn on the handle bar adjuster might be all it needs. Any time I have difficulty selecting neutral, which is not very often, I know my adjuster has moved (because I didn't tighten the lock nut) and I give the adjuster a tweak. Never had an i...

Re: switched circuit

Isn't there a spot in the loom for heated grips? ME109 will know. My Oxford grips are wired straight to the battery. The Oxford system relies on a charging signal from the battery, so if the bike is not running there is no 'signal' and the grips will turn themselves off after two minutes. I can't r...

Re: pin lock face sheilds

I made an ant farm out of my pinloc and they keep it quite clean.
Although they make me go cross eyed watching them when it's going to rain :mrgreen:

Re: switched circuit

84 R100 Is there a switched accessory circuit in the headlight shell where I can hook up some non OEM grip heaters? Do I need a relay? Things are a bit tight inside the headlight shell, as I have an LED H4 replacement. OR, does anybody know of an available OEM heated grip set up for sale? Thanx! :g...

Re: Wheel Recall ( Snowflake ) - The Definitive Truth

I still can't tell from the pics and it doesn't matter because a precise report of the failure would be out there somewhere so I can only guess. Was it a single event that took out four spokes? Just fatigue cracks that were not through? What do the intact spokes look like at the same point? What doe...

Re: Wheel Recall ( Snowflake ) - The Definitive Truth

That wheel cracked but didn't break into two pieces. The wheel was cut into two pieces to reveal information about why it cracked. I'd like to see a clear close up of the cracks.

Re: Nikasil

ZM's bike hasn't had a hard time or too many miles, iirc. Assuming this is just to fix an oil weep at the cylinder base? Or is it a matter of fix it as well, while doing the pr rubbers? I pull the cylinder with the head, piston inside. My wrist pins are easy to get out, and just require basic circli...
