Winter Tire Test

Not really a scientific test just my impression. In the first test I had a Heidenau K60 and they already had about 12000 miles on them. They still got really good traction in loose snow about 8"-12"...

Chain tension

These are just my opinions and are not backed by any documentation. BMW recommends adjusting the chain on the F800GS to 35-45 mm while the bike is on the side stand. Due to the pivot point of the...

Hey

Probably doesn't matter now, but when you were trying to charge the battery were you connecting direct to the battery or going through the power plug with a BMW charger?

When I have you do my F800 18" conversion would it be better to just send you the hub? I'm thinking because I'll be doing the jumbo SS spokes and nipples all you would need is the hub right?

I used to cut lots of plexi at one of my old jobs. We always used a plywood blade (lots of teeth) turn it backwards and it will make a smooth cut without chipping.
