I gutted mine (on the GS) and replaced the lines with braided SS ones salvaged off a crashed GSA.

Easy to service, 100 times better feel and they will last for ever.

(Then promptly sold the bike ... so now the next owner is enjoying them.  ::)  )

My 'new-to-me' smart tv has turned your YouTube videos into real spectacles. I spend far too many hours traversing mountains in my living room.

Thank you and keep it up!  :thumleft:

Hi guys,

I want to know the condition of the R56 between Middelburg and Elliot.

Roadworks, anything.

Thanks.

Flux capacitors are best  :thumleft:


They are, but they raise the CoG.

I replaced the "O" ring on an OEM coupler on the crossover, Stealer price R 57.00 for an "O" ring. ::)

I forked over R450 and replaced all on both bikes ... with a spare for each toolkit.

Once every 15 years ain't that bad ... considering they tend to be show stoppers when the let go.

Howdee guys

One of the quick release units on my R1150GS has started to leak recently, the one with the female unit on the tank side of the coupling.

Not sure what they price for at the dealers but I was wondering do you have one lying around you want to get rid of?

Regards
Tom

A leak is usually just the o-ring that's shot. (They become brittle over time.) Much cheaper than a new coupler.

They deserve our total support,


Why?

Surely you EARN support.

Maybe they should have a look along the N14 around Diepsloot and ask the shacks next to the Highway for their plans?

Two totally different sets of rules for the hÍvs and the hÍvnots.

They build whatever where ever ... then receive water, sanitation, electricity and eventually houses ... which the muni supplies with your taxes.

Taxes which include the money you had to pay to have your building plans approved ...   :biggrin:

Flying Brick had a selection last I was there.

If you can't find anything and HAVE to use a large connector ... take the alternator belt off and lift the alternator to max height.

That should give a few extra mm.

Twin spark R1150GS. Everything you'll ever want in a tar tourer.

Interessant is dat my 1100s baie geriefliker is op die ooppad as my 1150

Neewat, my nek en skouers is lam teen die tyd dat ek by die dorp uit is .. die GS sit darem baie gemakliker.

If you take the bike: it's a bike starter.

If you take just the starter: it's the starter from an old car ....

Huge difference in pricing ...  8)

Ons, dis die pad beruikers, moet 'n mind shift maak, of aanhou bloei.  Dis maar hoe dit is.

100% Dis in jou of nie. Geen toets of opleiding gaan jou hiermee help nie.

'n PÍllie van my het op 'n kol gesÍ: "Bike ry is gevaarlik, maar jy kan jou risiko bestuur."

Die probleem is dat Saffers maar bitter min 'risiko bestuur' en bewustheid in ons het.

Vraag is: hoe toets jy dit?

Hoe toets jy of iemand soos 'n vark gaan ry sodra hy sy papiere gekry het?

Jy kan nie.

En sad to say is daar 'n geweldige hoeveelheid ryers wat elkgeval nie worry oor dinge soos lisensies nie.

Exactly. Maak nie saak hoe moeilik die toets is nie, die kandidaad sal sÍ, skryf en perform presies wat hy moet om sy lisensie te kry.
Dan gaan hy huis toe en val homself te ptetter met sy sussie se 50cc scooter of sy splinter nuwe S1000RR. Dis onmoontlik om te toets.

Ons kort baie meer fokus op cause and effect van padveiligheid asook common decency.

Die manne in die video sou enige toets op aarde kon slaag. Maar die ou wat so ge-"Jaco, Jaco nee, Jaco" het, het nou sommer eerstehandse ondervinding van cause and effect opgedoen. Die feit dat hulle dit nie voor die tyd kon uitfigure nie is my issue.
