Re: BMW independent, Clutch replacement cost R1100

Well I thought I would give a bit of a update, I contacted 4 different BMW independent places and not one got back to me with a quote and lead time. I guess BMW service must be a booming industry ???.. Decided to do it myself and wear a back brace as I really cannot be hunched over very long, built...

Re: Meet Up in Sort, Catalunya 23-27 September 2019

For anyone driving/riding south, planning to use the N147 between Poitiers and Limoges: it's being dug up and re-surfaced near Bussiere Poitevine - Saint Bonnet De Bellac (close to Motobreaks, if you know it). The official diversion is quite lengthy so you might want to take a different route south...

Re: BMW independent, Clutch replacement cost R1100

I faced that same scenario on my K100RT which came with 36,000 miles In the end I decided to leave all be and wait. Eventually I got a tell tale drip of a rear main seal failing. I left it until early he following year when I felt I would not want oil on the clutch plate in France in the summer. Ord...

Re: h7 headlight bulbs?

My experience of LEDs was poor and I reverted to halogen. Relay makes a great difference.

Re: Tesco's 10w-40 oil query

My Suzuki owners manual states to use; 10w-40 API SF or SG, or SH, or SJ You can use higher letters than recommended without any bother, they reflect improvements in oils after the book is written. So SN would be safe to use, BUT as said, its not for wet clutch so don't use it. Dry clutch would be o...

Re: Scottish locals.....

Bring Citronella night lights, you get small ones and also large Zip ones. Essential camping kit and never let me down. If you have a tarp and put some on the ground under it it keeps them clear and keeps them away from your feet Things like have your inner tent with a mesh door, never leave the mes...

Re: Bloody BMW prices

I just bought an almost mint 2 owner 1983 BMW K100RS 29,000 miles for less than the cost of that service..........€1,000. Its tight as a ducks ass and beautifully maintained with some nice upgrades. I do my own servicing..........they also seem easier to do than more modern machines. I seem to keep ...

Re: Trail riding in the Dordorgne. Independant JAXSHACK review

I cant comment on JaxShack as I have never been there but I did just spend yet another 3 weeks in the Dordogne not too far from you. Trails are indeed fantastic, just so much to see and enjoy words don't describe it. Cave paintings, scenic towns and villages, spectacular views. If you get a chance, ...

Re: Motion sickness

I do suffer sea sickness despite a love of sea and sailing and for me Stugeron was the way to go. My solution is to eat well, but 2 hours before so its all done its thing and leaves the body warm and comfortable. Some good advice there, focussing on things more distant seems to help but I wonder is ...

Re: Recommendations for Garage Lighting

Fluorescents deteriorate and reduce with age. They also get condensation and dust on the tube reducing light by as much as 50% They also depend on having a good reflector behind them.
