My Dakar all of a sudden makes a loud noise while idling, could it be the decompression unit on the exhaust cam? Checked the motor, runs fine.

General Technical / BMW C1 - How to remove speed limiter?
« on: July 10, 2017, 02:36:27 pm »
Does anybody know where the speed sensor sits, and how can it be bypassed. Some blokes are cruising 120km/h with theirs but mine only 90km/h due to the limiter.
I did manage more but that was on the back of a trailer, not really the way I want to. :imaposer:

As per topic, Cape Union, sportsman's warehouse and Outdoor Centre are useless in our area. :eek7:

As the topic any feedback, recommendations regarding this GPS. I want something which can take a SD card, uses normal batteries, robust easy to operate and not break the bank,
Any 2nd units available?

Always wonders how limited and is it an investment

Garage, Projects & Restorations / Piggy sports - done for now
« on: September 03, 2014, 08:23:54 am »
Time for a change, instead of replacing one of my bikes I would like to custom/modify my 1150. Std to custom.

With technology and everything improving I was wondering how these two bikes compare in the power department. I personally likes the HP2 purely for its uniqueness and will buy it in a heartbeat, but I do pillion a lot and this is where the LC tips the scale. I have not driven one of the mentioned bikes as I still have my 1150,but are very tempting for a change or to ad a HP2 to my collection.
