How much mineral oil will go into the clutch system considering its totally dry? I'll be ordering online and don't want to fall short later.

It is highly recommended to use magura blood, which believe it or not, is the same fluid they use in there mtb brake levers.
Clutch doesnt hold alot of fluid, youll waste more in the purging process(dont reuse obv)
If for some reason you go through a whole bottle, chances are you could source some from your local mtb shop.

Btw, clutch bleed is quite retardedly easy..enjoi

PANIC STATIONS!

Had the bike up and running yesterday and today after a new dash and battery its displaying the dreaded EWS warning and no low beam.

Will a new ring antenna solve the problem? The bike also comes with a BMW on-board alarm system but guess that has been deactivated from the day I bought it because it never went off and the key fob is broken.

Can the alarm system display the EWS warning or its only the ring antenna?

Help please! Dont have a dealer in my city to take the bike to

Left the kill switch on last night and it started in the morning

This has got to be the most stupid system on the bike!!

Bodywork to go on in a couple of days and its done





The scrawny one is me and the bald one is my friend who owns the bike.

I gotta say it........You saw what the pavement did to the cylinder cover........Wear a helmet, or you head could get a similar rework. Enjoy.

A ride around the driveway just after you put everything together is too tempting!

Nice, looks like you have a great bike on your hands, or your friend does!

That was a pretty easy fix, just a matter of replacing parts. The valve timing was a new one for me as never seen cam sprockets with no positive lock on the cams before. My friends the one with the account sheet so no clue about the rebuild cost
