Remove #1, fluid will drain from motor.


Remove expansion tank lid and then tank. #2,#3


Remove hose off bottom of rad #4.

If you see this you have gone to far.

The bolt that is slightly obstructed (in the picture only) is one of the bolts to remove the left crank case cover. I think that is the one you are asking about.

The bolt at the right end of the "U" shape is to insert the crank TDC position lock pin. Whick leads to the last photo...

The bolt next to the "K15" in the pic is the oil drain. The one right next to it on the bottom of the motor.

Hi,

Has anyone had problems with the standard LED tail light? Mine seems to be dead! When the bike is switched on, voltage to the plug that connects to the tail light is 0.3v, when applying the brake, it jumps to 11,5 v, but the light never comes on? So I don't know if this is a bad LED tail light, or something in the wiring.

All fuses are fine.

BMW wants more than an arm and a leg for a new tail light! Has any one fitted any other brands?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks for all the advise! Seems like one wire is bad, got volts to read correctly now, but the light is still dead. Will search ebay for alternatives.

Not sure where you are but I sourced all the parts to replace my swingarm bearings from simplybearings.co.UK using dimensions taken from the BMW parts fiches on the maxbmw website.

Thanks Jester, I've used simply bearings, but I fancied trying a plain bush instead of the needle rollers, the left hand had collapsed, BSL got me one, just fitted it, put a grease nipple in, I'll see how it performs when I get it back on it's wheels.....

Pull the locator pins from the controls.

When you're done, make sure everthing is OK when the bars go from lock to lock.
it might be a dumb questions but how do I remove the brass locator pins from the switches on the handlebars? I was going to just give a hard tug with pliers but dont want to end up wrecking the kill/abs or the other multi switch
New black bars look sharp, but cant be used yet

If they don't come out easily, heat them for a few seconds with a soldering iron and they will just drop out.
