Re: Noise from Michelin Road 5

The Dunlop guy also said they were going to have a sale on them sometime in February.

Re: Noise from Michelin Road 5

I think the Pilot Road 4's are all GT tires (for the heaver bikes). There might be some regular ones left out there but they would be older tires and i don't need them on my bike. I made the mistake of getting a GT tire once, it was a bear to get on the rim as the side walls are a lot stiffer than t...

Re: Noise from Michelin Road 5

Ok I'm kind of done with the Michleins, funny wear pattern even though everything is the same as when I ran PR-III and PR-IV. In the spring I'll need new tires, thinking of Dunlop Roadsmart III. Comments, thoughts or hopefully a review from someone that ran Dunlops.

Re: thoughts on 2011 Classic with $38K miles

If you have a letter from BMW saying they will cover the fuel gauge for the 'life' of the bike I really would like a copy of it. I just went over the 12 year limit on my 07 and the strip went. The dealer tells me it will cost $400+ to replace (even though the one in the bike is less than two years o...

Re: Cager hit me. 2009 R12R seems to be totaled

If the forks or frame suffered any damage it's almost a sure thing that they will total it. It will be interesting to see what they want for it. . Also consider contacting a lawyer that handles motorcycle accidents, even if you don't have personal damage they might be able to make the path to a new ...

Directional Signal cancellation.

Recently the wire to the rear wheel speed sensor was cut. Came loose from the clip and rubbed on the rear rotor. Break Failure light, easily diagnosed with GS911 and had a spare on hand. Afterward noticed my turn signals no longer canceled. I noticed one other person had the same problem but didn't ...

Re: Battery Test

???? I don't know about disconnecting anything on start up. With all the electronic stuff going on your taking the risk that the bike might take it for a major problem and turn stuff off. Not a technical answer by any means, but your question shows you also have concerns. Can't you take the battery ...

Re: Noise from Michelin Road 5

Yes those wheel bearings came with the 2007 R1200R, 140,000 miles later when I removed them they were just as tight as the new ones going in.

Noise from Michelin Road 5

Just throwing this out to see if I'm the only one. I noticed a whining noise that seemed to be coming from front end and decided at 140,000 miles it might be the wheel bearings. I installed a set of premium (not internet specials) SKF bearings and the noise was still there. The sound is almost non- ...

Look up the RT tires - same size very often a higher load rating.

Re: Front wheel bearing

went to a local business that deals only with bearings - asked for best he had and ended up with SKF bearings. After replacing both bearings (that seemed OK when I took them out) the noise was still there. Started thing about what was new on the bike and the answer was the Michelin Road 5 tires. I w...

Re: Engine Running Hot Post Oil Change.

Basic stuff but have to start somewhere. Is oil at proper level ? If filter was changed is it an OEM filter ?? Was anything else done during the service ?? Is oil pressure lamp on, or flickering?? Everything was OK before service?? If anything synthetic should possibly make it run cooler. These bike...

Re: Old Fourm members

It seems like a few of you guys the years are catching up on me. Rapidly approaching four score years and 1,000 mile days are getting on the iffy side, I fell asleep on the bike in Kansas last year. My R1200R is still running great at 140,000 miles but it's getting heavier and the ground seems to be...

Re: Lighting Upgrade Question

I've wondered the same about auxiliary lighting in the rear. I've ridden behind people that if they hit the brakes while making a turn the display of winking and blinking lights didn't exactly scream 'I'm stopping'. My initial reaction was more like ' Wow - look at that'.

Re: Misfire/rough running

Seeing as it sat a while maybe (just maybe) this could be relevant. Posted by Don Eilenberger a while back it's about cleaning the grease in the stepper motor.
