Re: Solar Panel on top box

Hi Mike
Solar PV on camper van yes, motorbike topbox No. Just not worth the weight and minimal power gain.

Re: BMW R1200GSA rear Brake disc overheating after pads replacement

Hi Kazz Might be silly questions, but have you checked: The brake pads are correctly seated, the caliper slides ok and disc is not warped? I always use a bit of copper grease on the reassembly of a caliper. I also think a common mistake some technicians make is they forget to open the reservoir when...

F800GSA front sprocket change 17T

Hi Fellas I finally decided to swop my OEM 16T front sprocket for a 17T recently when I did a chain and sprocket replacement. I thought some of you might find some feedback useful. The OEM chain (Regina) was shagged at ~9000miles and the sprockets started showing signs of wear. I bought a DID VX rin...

Re: xt660z tyres

Obviously these ones you want to sell aren't dead. But I feel your pain about loads of tyres in your shed. I have loads of dead ones up the side of my garage now, and the local tip won't take them, pain in the arse! Don't know what to do with them. Tempted to wait until my neighbours have pissed me...

Re: Bmw 800 gs adventure colour swap wanted

Have you considered a colour change with stickers?

This can make your bike custom/unique and protect the plastics.

Or you can also try the BMW GS Europe Facebook group.
