In my defense - how was I supposed to interpret this as "bike related":   ::)

15 Days.

360 long and sleepless hours. Oh the pain of seperation, which relentlessly sears my torn soul.

I have deperately tried to claw my way through each interminable minute, knowing that my strength will eventually fail me.

I have stared at the ceiling night after night with dead eyes, my skin crawling with a thousand spiders in my addicts curse.

It will end soon. It must.


try not to think too much  ;D

Dis hoe Hentie voel as hy vir so lank nie n knippie kry nie......

....wat seker gereeld gebeur
Gewoontlik n@@i ek reguit aan op fyndraai.

15 days to diagnose a faulty thermostat on an overheating bike?

 ::)





Not too bad...BMW have had Smithey's bike for over 4 months and still can't find the problem.... :peepwall: :biggrin:
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Seems like it was running hot all this time and eventually packed up. Quick solution is remove the plug off the thermostat wire it up with a manual switch which you can switch on when it starts getting a bit too warm if KTM don't come to the party on time. also maybe bosch can match it up I'm not sure?
