    Hello everybody, For my next project i chose to build an indicator that will show me when the brake and tail light bulb is burned. BEcause we have only one light for brake, if the filament is interrupted while riding, we will not know that the bulb is burned and the other people won't see when...

    Not sure if any body has encountered this before. Changing up through the gears and the head light main beam flashes doesn't do it all the time and sometimes it's fine. Only started to do it recently checked battery connections as I recently had the battery off to charge, not sure if it's just a...

    I have a 2005 twinspark and the vibes through the handlebars are a nightmare. Literally after several minutes on a straight your throttle hand is numb. I've checked the chain out which seems fine, engine runs sweet as a nut, the bikes only done 3k from new. Has anyone had this and if so how...

    A nagging electrical prob manifesting in a speedo that stops working in the rain. Been all through the FAQs etc, and I've changed the rear wheel speedo pickup (it's an '04 GS) and traced as much as I can. No other gremlins & battery connections are good and tight. Anyone had similar or have any...

    The bike sounded like a bag of nails on Saturday but as it 15 minutes to kick-off I just pressed on to the match. After the game, the bike was dead. Turns out the battery was completely dry! All is well now, but I can't for the life of me work out how a duff battery can make the engine sound...

    Ok all, There was I, riding on a great road this afternoon, following a MV Agusta which had been swapping lead with me for the last 10 miles, when my game was badly spoilt by a big cloud of smoke coming from above and below the instrument cluster on my CS. I mean a big cloud as well; had to...

    I had the misfortune of having to ride upto Earls Court in rush hour traffic this morning on my own bike. I noticed a distinct drop in the road sense of a lot of the bikers I saw, the main gripe being going the wrong side of keep left bollards. I'm sure I haven't missed any changes in the law...

    Today Rosie the Scarver went for to get her 4th birthday present, an MOT :-D No problem I thought. Bzzzt! Wrong! She failed on two counts, steering head bearing, and the front wheel bearing. I always take her to a non BMW dealer for the MOT - where I've taken my bikes for years, so I...

    In the carburated, older models, was there a "good year" and a "bad year"? I was looking at a 1997 and a 2000 and I could not determine any visual difference. Where can I find the information regarding "updates" and "improvements" on these carburated models ? What should I avoid ? Thank you.

    Would it be possible to have an addition to this excellent webiste for good, bad or indifferent services, like helpful garages or mean insurance companies etc? :shock: I saw something like this a couple of years back on a different forum where people gave their opinion or told their good/bad...

    Hi All, Went to the BMW off-road school last weekend and had an excellent time. Crashed loads, learnt loads, best of all it wasn't my bike :-D . Plucked up the courage to take my pride and joy on the local byways for a couple of hours this morning. Had a great time and didn't crash or drop...

    :not worthy: Ladies & gents I have seen suggestions that putting a 15 tooth front sprocket on my 1996 F650 instead of the 15 or 17 tooth fitted as standard . What are the benefits ? Has anyone done it ?

    36,000 miles on an F650CS. What an achievement, as they haven't been around *that* long. No not me :mrgreen: Just been reading on the Chain Gang forums on the post in the link below, by a guy apprpropriately named "DailyRider" who has clocked up that mileage...
