    I have just serviced my bike and found the air filter was def seen better days. Oil filter and plug. After the service it has developed a flat spot not all the time but winding it on at around 2500 - 3000 rev's the bike just cuts out then picks up which is not such a problem until you hit the...

    Hello All, I have a flat back tyre :-(. I've replaced the valve core but it's leaking from the base of the valve housing (i.e. the threaded part that goes into the wheel). It's a tubeless tyre. How do I go about fixing that? Can I fix it or does it require a new tyre? Thanks in advance, Matt

    Hi All Time to pick your collective brains, my 650gs was off the road between june and this week. I put a new battery on it about a month ago as I was getting it ready for winter duties, it started first touch of the button. a week later I went to start it and the battery was completely flat...

    Hello, Just before Christmas I got my battery replaced under warranty (F650GS Dakar - brand new September 2006) as it went completely flat after I hadn't used the bike for 2 weeks. Yesterday I went out to use the bike and the replacement battery was flat, again I hadn't used the bike for 2...

    Decided on Saturday to give my battery a charge up as it was pretty weak. Gave it a slow charge for about 24 hrs. tried to start up the bike this morning and the starter made that flicking/grunting noise. Battery was exhausted. Worse than before I charged it. I suspect the charger was faulty so...

    I've not been using my bike much recently, and went out to it the other day to find that the battery was completely flat. :doh: I've charged it back up again but seem to have lost the electrics. The bike still starts and the lights still work etc.. but the speedo, rev counter, clock, and...

    Put key in late one morning and straightway realized after 23 years of BM ownnership had finally done it - locked ignition in "P". Cursed this never used facility, but made no difference - 18 hours and battery was totally parrot. On-site electrician understands sign language (we're in Italy) and...

    Hi All, Have been having problems with my battery running flat and when I replaced it after charging today I noticed what may be damage to a thin red wire that runs from the batery positive to the loom, adjacent with the main red battery wire. Does anyone know what this wire is running to? Or...

    Got a flat yesterday, 9,800 miles on the rear tyre (D207) which is a good milage. The likely hood of a flat increases with wear so I should probably have replaced it earlier. Which brings me to SPC motorcycles, according to the BMW web site my nearest BMW bike dealer. Not only didn't they have...

    I woke up this morning and noticed that my front tyre is completely flat. I could not see any damage, and I don't think that it's been let down by someone, as the valve cap is still there. As I am generally not confident about this sort of thing - the next maintenance DIY meet-up that is run...

    Whilst doing a 6k service on my 1994 Funduro, something really bizzare happened. I let the engine idle for a few minutes, then rode the bike into my garage (o.k., it's an old barn) and turned the engine off. Tried to start it again and there was nothing. The ignition light was still coming...
