Then you have the torque settings and tools shown on the DVD on top of that - great stuff. I think the "professionalism" of the DVD production has been played down too much - it's absolutely fine Jim

I think the only bit I wasn't 100% clear on was when you need to adjust the rocker arm vs. just the valve adjusters but maybe that's obvious when you actually do it.

Thanks again Jim,

Thanks Ian,

The DVD is in NTSC format, so some of Europe might have trouble playing it. The fix seems to be owning a very cheap Chinese made DVD player which allows all formats becuase that way they can sell them worldwide without changes. Silly but true.

As for the rocker arm end-play adjustment, do you mean HOW to adjust it, or WHEN?

For when it will be when the spec is not met. .05mm to .40mm. I tend to want it closer to .05, and if it is above .35 I will adjust it as well. This keeps them quieter.

The how part was demonstrated, but since the bike I used did no require adjustment I didn't actually turn the bolts because I am of the opinion that you shouldn't loosen the head bolt unless it is necessary to do an adjustment.

Thanks for the positive feedback, and feel free to e-mail me, or post, any questions you might have!

Jim

Just put my order in on Adventure Workshops site. Look forward to getting this great product. Based on feedback looks to be a "no brainer" and will pay for itself the first time you use it.

Thanks Jim.

Thumb Congrats to Jim Bade's DVD, it made MCN

Yes I know it's supposed to be Jim Von Baden but the genius at Motorcycle Consumer News seemed to mess up his name.

At least it was a great review and hopefully the contact info is close enough.

Doh!!! I never realized his name really is Jim Bade.

It's on page 34 for those who want to read it. And it even made mention on the front page.

Thanks Guys!

I go by both Jim Bade, legal name, and Jim Von Baden, family legal name.

None the less, it was very cool to get it in MCN, and now they want a copy of the R1100/1150 DVD as well!

I just hope they are as kind!

Jim

Look for an informational website coming soon, that will include updates to the DVDs, a suggestions section, and an FAQ section!

thanks Jim!

Jim, I just finished my 10,000km (6000mile) service. just want to hand out a big thank you for doing the DVD . it was the best tool I used today. took the little mini DVD player out to the garage with me and away we went. I thought when I bought this bike it would be beyond my amateur mechanic abilities and would therefore have to fork out mucho mulla to the BMW gods for their services. it is actually quite easy to work on. you saved me some coin for sure and I have a better understanding of how things work on it. thinking next summer I am going to have to ride to your town one weekend and spend some of that saved money on a couple of pints and some food with you. Deal?
