Re: No start but a lot of rattle ...

NoRRmad, thank you for the quick reply. No fuel pump whine, but a clean, very conspicuous rattle, which also seems to fade away/diminish in volume as the power dissipates. I will replace the battery, keeping my fingers crossed. Then a paint job will be next since the bike, even if garaged and kept c...

Ignition off and put the battery on re-charge (through bike's 12V power outlet) for 3 days. Battery charger led green (full charge). I...

Drive Shaft Leak

I had the bike in the 90 deg sun all day today and found a good amount of oil leaking from the drive shaft (seeping out through the breather vent in the middle of the black cap). I have pictures but do not know how to post them. How serious is it? Dealer is about 25 miles away. Can I ride it to him ...

I have just purchased from Omega two sets of connectors as follows:

FT-LCD170-05-VITON
FT-LCD220-05-VITON

Omega advises that they are specially manufactured for use as fuel line connectors. They do come with their own VITON o-rings.

If BMW are serious about the products they manufacture, they should have a decent recall regarding the leak and replace the faulty parts with some teutonic metal parts that do not fail. Seriously, someone could get badly burned if the bike catches fire on the road. Easy to happen with all the gasoli...
