most recently, okay in the last month on my 95 1100gs. Replaced the bearings in my gearbox (thanks Murkidi), replaced input and output shaft seals. Replaced throttle cable (found it was frayed when I started pulling the gear box), replaced the air filter, replaced the fuel pump and filter, lubed the splines just need to replace the weepy final drive pinion seal sync the carbs and I can close her up and ride her.

Sorry. The rubber inserts as are JVB described:

This makes the mod reversable.

BMW plug cap puller

BMW r1200gs 2012

At 7346 miles I checked the valve clearance (all in spec), ran the GS911 diagnostics (no issues) and cleared the "service" warning.

Purchased the BMW plastic spark plug cap puller. we wrested with it fruitlesly for sometime then reverted to a shoe lace to remove the caps.

What a piece of shit.

Added some cargo nets to the Vario.

A nicer one to the right one to keep small things from roaming around the pannier.



And another one on the left case to keep things inside when I open it..

What I have done today is...

Missed it... it's in the shop in Asheville NC getting the transmission fixed that BMW of Denver couldn't fix. Then I watched a couple of episodes of Long Way Down on Hulu and missed it even more. However as soon as I get it back I will put the Adventure shocks and center stand on it and ride the hell out of it!

both are from eBay, the red one was a cheap one but didn't really keep things together, the second one cost perhaps 10 times more but it is way more effective..

I've got it from this guy: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=330956208839

I found out the bike was allergic to being ran with low oil. Today I got everything swapped to the new(er) engine and have it installed in the bike. I still have to put about a third of the bike back together

Pissed Crap!!!

Today I changed the final drive fluid and greased the driveshaft splines as part of my 48K maintenance, and decided to replace the semi-bunged up rear tire bolts (the last tire shop guy was less than good with a Torx wrench) with some I picked up last month just for this purpose.

Everything went well until I put the bolts in and torqued the first one. I thought they looked a little short (they were MORE than a little short), and they didn't go in very far before bottoming against the wheel.. That's when trouble happened in the way of a stripped hub when I began the torque process. It seems that grabbing only 3 threads in the hub won't hold the torque...

So, I will now be pulling the hub and chasing the thread from the backside with a nice new tap. A 1/2 hour job is now going to get rather difficult if I understand the separation process correctly... Good thing I have a machine shop and can build my own puller and fittings.

The moral of the story? NEVER trust a part guy, even one at a BMW shop!
