NO NO NO! Come go with us!
We pair up and meet at the hotel each night for days re-plays and bullshit session.
Pick you out a riding pal and go with us at your pace.

No details/date yet but looking like late April thru May to avoid the rainy season.
Mini Trail said something about the best time to go a few years ago.
Gonna have to ask him again since he's done the old route and lives up that way.

BMW 1150R Help?

O.K. BMW guys, My bike wont take off from 1st gear at red lights, and revs high before accelarating in higher gears. Doesnt like any kinda hills? With my KTM this means slipping clutch, so what about the Beemer. Its at 175,000 thousand miles so mabye time for clutch redo? Any helpful tips and warm fuzzy tricks to extend life would be appreciated!!! Also leaking oil and didnt used too so any ideas? Thanks beemer studs!

Isnt that 75K and not 175K....

Sounds like clutch. If so. Is that a standard wet clutch like most bikes? Understand we are dirt bike guys are look at manual only as a last resort.... and sometime not even then...

Looks like a piece of cake to fix.



This fella fixed it in no time and took it for a spin in less than 6 minutes.

Holy Cow Phil,
Do a bit of search on the interwebs for yourself.
I'm seeing anything from $2500-$3200 on just a few results.

This CAN'T be right.


More research,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
More drinks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I got BMW buddies and I'm gonna call them.

OK,
Call Terry Ware TONIGHT @ 205- 335- one five nine seven.

John Cockrell say's with as many miles as you have, its recommended to replace/repair the slave cylinder along with this clutch job. Something about possibility of a oil leak messing up the new plates.
You may already have this situation.
Fluid level correct or low in reservoir?

Call Terry ASAP for the correct answers your looking for and let us know.

Not REALLY all that tough, but there is some shit involved that might make people skeered.

HTSrocker did his (i sawr it) and could probably give some tips (like take it someplace and pay) or one of the local beemer guys may need some side money for Christmas (or Starbucks)

Two words if you take it on yourself: FELT RING

Blackwater ride next weekend? XR650L rider @ Trot?

Good day riders,
Just wondering if a mongrel ride is happening (in the works) before hunting season kicks off Thanksgiving ? Hopefully can get a couple dueler's into a Blackwater loop either sat/17th or sun/18th, possibly camp on Hurricane or Karick lake ??
Does anyone know the rider who rode the XR650L to Speck/Trot ? Would like to yap at him concerning possible tire selection for majority road use and bastion of back-up parts I possess in case he breaks something or looks to modify/shave some weight off that beast.
