    Hi All, Whilst fiddling around with my front end I think that I might have inadvertently adjusted the level of the scarver headlight. Does anyone know what level it should be at - I assume it's the same as doing car ones - park a certain distance from a wall and measure the beam etc? Also...

    I collected my bike from having a service at a non-BMW specialist place yesterday. They commented about how difficult oil level is to check and that they though it might be a tad low - I should check myself when I got home. I didn't have time last night, so I checked on arrival at work this...

    Been out on the new Strada/ Funduro hybrid :whistle: today. Engine was running lovely, when i got back i took the oil filler dipstick out and the oil was up to the top of the filler neck :? . before taking it for a spin the level was spot on. Almost as if the oil wasnt draining back down into...

    I think that you're supposed to be able to see the coolant level through the small slot in the 'tank cover' (not sure if this is the correct term) on the left hand side. I'm finding it very difficult to see the actual level without removing the 'tank cover'. I've tried shining a torch through...

    Hi Whilst I realise this is a pretty basic question I can't find anything on the FAQ's or anywhere else .... I have a 1997 Fundure which has the oil tank in the frame. What is the procedure for checking the oil ? Hot or Cold ? Should I screw the dipstick in or just use it to the end of the...

    What is the correct way to check the oil level ? Also, is the oil level supposed to be in the middle of the spyglass when the bike is cold?

    I have read the owners book on this subject, but in practice I cannot get a good reading on the dipstick, oil seems everywhere on it, so I just assume its got some in the tank, any tips please. Thanks Dave

    At the risk of being ridiculed for not checking it earlier, I discovered this weekend that the water level in my battery was almost non-existant :oops: . I was lucky to have spotted it when I did - touch wood the battery has done me proud (although I've probably shortened its life :think: -...

    While fitting a Givi rack today I left the bike running as it had not been started for nearly a week. When I looked across at the tank I saw a stream of water coming out from behind the cover where the water header tank is. I removed the cover and saw that the header tank was so full that it was...
