    I know I've not posted a lot, however I feel these bits and bobs may be usefull to some of you. I have made a custom accessory loom for my 650GS that goes behind the clocks and provides 5 fused outputs with a rating of 4 amps each. It is attached with cable ties and provides connection for...

    A bloke at work has made a chain oiler out of a push soap dispenser bottle a length of clear tubing and a y connecter from a car window wash. He has strapped it to the frame with cable ties and presses it once about every 50 miles. the tube has a breather on it utilising the y connecter he has...

    Hey guys, As previously mentioned I've now finished making my own large panniers for my 650. Have a look at the pics, it cost me all in all about £100 and about 3 hours work. I cut sheets of ali to size, bent it then riveted the lot together I also riveted handles to the top and draw lock...

    With such an up close and personal weekend with my GS, (see all my other posts - thanks guys) I have found to my great annoyance that the front forks are very un BMW like in their condition. The main tubes are showing slight signs of pitting - ok I guess that comes from 15000 miles in 10 months...

    My ST has a centre stand so I have no problem getting the front wheel off, but some models dont have a centre stand, therefore it would be difficult to remove the front wheel for bearings / tyres / disc work. To get the front wheel in the air: You need a big lump of timber, about 1 mtr long...

    Anyone made their own ? Very much toying with the idea like the style of the Jesse's . nice shape , not boxy like all the other's. A sheet angle former isn't hard to knock up. All joints would possibly have to be riveted, which would be good if I damage them. Drill rivets out, new piece in...
