So, I am cursed by BMWPE & have been off the bike since Thomas river.
And why???? Decided to go under the knife for a Rotor Cuff operation.
Pain, pain & more pain since then. Suffering because of the op & suffering because
i cannot ride the bikes.
OK, enough of the bitching & complaining.
Decided both the throttle bodies need to be serviced & cleaned.
Some pics to follow.

Stripped out the K&N filter & the sock I bought from Jughead.
A little dirty I say chaps.

Cleaned both & soaked in filter oil also purchased from Guy.

That sock is a great idea! Bet it keeps the filter clean for longer.

Further assembled all & connected the GS911 & via the laptop set all relevant
parameters to to correct values. Amazed to see one software program run a scope
type window where I can select any parameters & sampling rate and view it live.

Real cool to be able to do this level of service & settings.
Running Sweet but no further pics as it does not get washed. I ride it.

All this at 133K +   Just started riding the XTZ a few days ago but still tapping into those
pain killer tablets.  
Damm, This is taking long to heal.

Country Tracks weekend ride up to Derric & Unelda was enjoyed by about 20 of
us bikers.
Some dirt & and some tar but what a great venue. Very well looked after by our host.
The GSA now at 136800Km. Replaced the battiers in both TPS (Tyre Pressure Sensor) and all well.
Fitted a Mitas E10 and very happy with the handling.
The Hiedie K60 had completed 14000Km and now developed a flat surface which made cornering a little strange. No oil used at all since service at 130K
Have developed an erratic idle when cold so looking for a second hand Throttle Position Sensor on the left throttle body to swap & test it with.
Any dogs can help with it so I can pinpoint it to confirm faulty or not.

With 137300 Km on the clock I have decide that the gearbox cush final drive needs to be replaced. It is just making too much noise now.
BMW Continental in PE will be having the privilege of installing the drive & also some other refinements that need to be done.
All will be well before the 5 X days away ride to the BM event in Goudini Spa this month.

Aaaaaaah, new is nice. That box is so slick & so quite it makes me remember the day I collected new.

Thanks Paul at Continental for a great job. I am very satisfied with the works done on the bike.Service was great & the coffee is also good.

Now busy packing for the BMW Bike Fest weekend.

2008 was the year the Cush final drive gear was replaced with a new design.
You will see the 2007 first, open spring tension & then 2008 closed spring tension.

Got the box of spares back with all the old bearings & seal with their BMW packaging.
