Proof that some people should not touch bikes (GS LC)
« on: June 18, 2014, 08:09:25 am »
I get really pissed  off when people post clever comments to show how stupid they are
1. The 40mm bar risers work, if installed it and when I turn to full lock the revs stay the same... It's is drive by wire.... No cable to pull on
2.  The dry clutch spline issues is starting again like on my older GS.... wtf...

If the LC's clutch is dry, one can only surmise that the spline issue, will shortly be the least of his problems!   :imaposer:

Only the really uninformed will say a GS does not have a Diff.   The Canbus Flux Capasitor will not operate in correct timing sequence without the Differentiating Internal Flux Formatter.

You're all wrong:

Here is the BMW with the diff! It's even a lockable diff :cheers:

And they went all the long way over to Stalingrad with grandpa's Wehrmacht although with no can bus but rather Opel Blitz and Sd.Kfz.251's

Indeed and as a technical slash mechanical boffin such as you are, you should now realize that a hug enumber of complaints about BMW's are because the owner is stoooopit.
