Re: Parasitic Drain

The clock also drains your battery.

I use a battery tender for 48 hours (Friday 6 AM till Sunday 6 AM) every week and the Motobatt is now over 8 years old.

Re: Alternator belt and a chirp

In the video he uses one torque wrench only on the left hand side of the bike at the back of the alternator to lift and hold belt at 8 nm. Holding that in place at 8 nm he uses the other torque wrench on the left hand side of the bike on the front of the alternator to set it at 20 nm. On the right h...

Re: R1150R Starting issues/Brake light flash

Can't help with the running/noise issue, but the brake light might be the ABS system which flashes initially until it's activated by riding few miles per hour (forget how many exactly)- then it's good to go and the warning light should go out. Best of luck and welcome to the group. Ahh, fantastic. ...

Re: New 2004 R1150R

If ABS bike, then flush the breakfluid (particularly the ABS system) every year. Or remove the ABS system in advance.

Great video on the subject : always ride your motorcycle as though it has a cloaking device fitted and it is switched on (said at 4:23)

Re: Toot...toot.

Always best to ride defensively and assume the worst, it's your life, not theirs that is at stake, so take responsibility for yourself. :) Yes, that 's where it all starts. Don't ever assume that they see you. On the road with a motorbike since 1974, has taught me that and saved me many times. That...

Re: Toot...toot.

The moment you need a horn to warn somebody, is in fact almost too late. You don't want to get in that kind of situation. " I must have inadvertently put on my invisible man jacket ". Makes me wonder. High visability jacket and helmet? Or black/brown jacket, black (or dark coloured) helmet...

I have the same tender and do the same. Battery (Motobatt) is now 7 years old and absolutely fine.

Re: Flat Black Roadster

What if the exhaust pipes weren't in top shape any longer? Corroded or whatever. Wrap them. And the whole bike just looks cool. 8) 8) 8)
I like the looks, but it's not very practical. Typical Dutch reaction by the way.

Re: Denali Soundboard airhorn

I don't have any experience with the Denali horn, but instead purchased a low and high horn from a K1100LT.
I used to to ride a K1100LT and remembered it had very loud horns. Works perfect for me. Those K1100LT horns are Fiamm horns.
