came off a running bike until a young lady wanted a triumph parked in her drivers door. Bike was running fine, i can temp swap with mine on the AT's to show output figures. I'd have it myself, but both twins are mosfeted & i have a cheap chinese copy for emergencies, though i've only heard of 1...
Hi everyone,I have a G650GS, i was away touring round Europe with my husband on our bikes, after a few days i noticed that my BMW badge from the front side panel was missing, I have looked on the internet for one but no luck, does anyone have one for sale , the size is 58mm.
Good afternoon gents.
Here's my question:
For a few days now I'm noticing my AT RD04 a bit unstable while cornering on tarmac, at speeds around 100 to 120 kms/h.
At first I thought it was due to the rear wheel bearings. In fact they were already a bit "slack". However, I have replaced them by...
Hi to all,
I understand this will not solve my problems but some "philosophy" would be appreciated.
So, sinally i got some time to ride "where eyes can see" type of trip with a friend. 25.7 km away from hope (im glad that not 125.7km away) my engine started to make loud metal ticking noise so i...

So I tried to fit my US-spec 1986 XL600R with the dual headlights, seat and large tank of the Paris Dakar Euro-spec XL600LM in time for a west American trip. It was a bigger job that I have the tools or time for, so I'm selling the parts I imported from a German PD04 XL600LM.
This was my Twin when I first bought it. I knew it wasn't pretty as the previous (and only) owner had decided to paint it black and put gold dragons on the tank. Go figure....lol
Well, it didn't take long to get the bike stripped, and after a few 'surprises' I had the frame powder coated, the...
I set off this morning with nowhere in mind, just drove up the A7 to have a think. Then I crossed over to the A68 to Pathead and down to Haddington.
Pretty quiet at 10AM, still, the Coffee Pot cafe was open so a large coffee and a (huge) bacon roll was consumed. Breakfast taken care of it...
Recently picked up a 650v4.
It runs well but looks to have been an all year round bike for the previous owner.
Plan is to fit this lot over the next week or so.
Exhaust was definately on its last legs.
Panniers frames are a bugger to fit
I've been round the...

I took a run to the Biggar vintage rally today. Knowing what the traffic would be like I went along the back roads to miss it all and parked the bike in the centre of Biggar so I could walk to the show which is only 1/2 a mile away. I also had the luggage on the bike so that I could change out...

The BMW has had 3 previous owners,

There is some surface corrosion in the usual places- lower engine bars, rear sub frame and fork leg alloy,
After a successful final drive bearing replacement and a cursory check of all bearings etc, engine back in frame, fired up and off we go! Then the rumbling started, when the oil warmed up. Nothing I'd heard before the surgery, so WTF? Ride for a while hoping it will clear...stupid I know, I've...
