Re: glove suggestions

I like the BMW "allround" glove.. similar to my old ones. but not much on reviews.. I'm glad you said that, because that's exactly what I would recommend, they even match your criteria to a 'T'. I have a pair, it's at least my 3rd pair* and I love them. Reminds me - I must buy a couple of pairs and...

Mine were a cheap ebay leather pair. had them for 8 yrs, loved them too, but they were pretty beat up... lol Looking for similar but nicer. I like some of the BMW ones but I think 100 bucks is ...

Re: Stinky Drippy Smoky

A bit of excitement for you diehard board members: slow motion video of my best crash ever! I gave myself a thumbs up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpFrolho3yg GoPro was attached to Rockster instrument cover. Yes, the bike landed on me... right side valve cover and handlebar were on asphalt surf...

Re: Stinky Drippy Smoky

... and without peels' peer pressure to urge my needed final drive leak repair, I did the next best thing: crashed Rockster2. The bike and I each did a forward flip, with bike landing on me. Such affection and closeness. There's oil oozing on one side near cylinder now. WOW that was NOT the type of...

Re: Anyone still here?

My K was equipped with Shorai battery installed by original owner. I installed sealed lead acid later, Yuasa or equivalent. Like you, I'm thinking of selling the mighty K. Excellent road trip bike, but the Rockster can serve that function admirably (though less swiftly), and I'm getting my performa...

Re: Stinky Drippy Smoky

re-re-re-RE visiting. :) 4 yrs on, bike still drips gear oil. lol man am I on top of things!! my only thought is its leaking from the neutral switch. no oil from the output. no oil from the input. I replaced all those seals though....so my concern is a buggered up the area around the neutral seal. b...

Re: True or false ?

I do it.

changing a valve gap will change the intake timing/pressure slightly. keep all things equal.

way overdue for both.

Re: HELP! 2002 R1150r Problem

carknut, Surprising that nobody mentioned the TB synch hose vacuum caps on the intake manifold bottoms, especially on a 16 year old bike. They can still be in place but severely cracked, which also could happen "all-at-once" during a heat cycle. If there are hoses instead of cap-offs, rem...

Re: Colder Temps

30 last weekend, so I poured some right into the oil filler, and few teaspoons in the gearbox too. just in case!

Re: Snap crackle and POP!

mine does this a sometimes during summer if its hot, and only turned off briefly. Immediately obvious to me it was a pre ignition issue. I always imagined it just has to do with where in the revolution the engine stopped.... dont consider it harmful.
