Re: Michelin pilot 4 tires

I found a screw in my front PR3, so I'll need a new tire. Rear is also a PR3 with plenty of life left. I didn't really like the PR3. It seemed the tire pressure fluctuated more than with my old metzelers. I don't like the feel of them either. I'm thinking of getting a Metzeler Z6 for the front or a ...

Where did the oil go?

My oil (idiot) light is on. I see there is no oil in the sight glass. I put more oil in, and i eventually get a full oil change. The next day, the oil is not in the sight glass again, and the oil light is on again. Mechanic put in a new switch - i believe for sending the oil - and it worked that day...

Re: Bike not turning over - mechanic in/near brooklyn?

Thank you, Towerworker and CycleRob.
I just got back from my trip. The bike was great. I think I fell back in love with it.

I did put the new battery in and had charged it first.

I did not reset the TPS range data points. Should I do it now, or is it too late?

Thanks a lot.

George

Re: Bike not turning over - mechanic in/near brooklyn?

The battery connections were tight and did not show corrosion. I think it was just in need of a charge. I did charge it overnight, and it started this morning. Is there a portable voltmeter i could buy to check the battery occasionally? I have a lead from the battery now on the bike to make charging...

Re: Bike not turning over - mechanic in/near brooklyn?

Thanks. I'll try that out. I guess I'll remove the tank. The battery gave me trouble over the winter, but it's been fine lately.
I went out and bought another one a few months ago but didn't install it since the present one had been ok. We'll see.
Thanks for the advice, sstein.

Bike not turning over - mechanic in/near brooklyn?

I was all set to go on a short ride. I had the bike running, got a phone call, and then cut the engine after realizing this call would take a few minutes. I go to start it again, and it sounds like my battery's about dead. It tries turning over, and then I just get a clicking noise. I doubt this is ...

see everything on this page besides the Givi, the Parabellum, and the Flyscreen.

Re: MRA Vario screen on R1150R

I am using the MRA Vario Touring Screen (VTNB), and i'm very happy with it. I'm 5'6". I believe there are two versions of this screen - One fits for the speedster brackets, and other requires MRA brackets that attach to your handlebars. The hole placements are different. The one made for speeds...
