and what costs this Shizz Nizz? Can one add it to mineral oil or only fully synth?

Sorry Dogmatix - a bit slow on the rebound are I .......
Cera Tec be R 274.00 but if you don't tell lecap I am giving a discount you can have it for R 240.00. I would like to say you should only be running Liqui Moly oil in your baby, but you can mix it with mineral or synthetic.
The big question would be is WHY would you run your Beemer on mineral oil, it is not s Cortina GTS bud  :-\

I never actually added any oil to the boxer motor myself - only when serviced did it change. I was wondering for my other bikes....

Cool bananas, remember the Cera tec only works with the Boxer motor because it has a dry clutch, you cannot use the Cera Tec with a wet clutch bike - for those we have the MoS2 additive which does much the same thing and actually saved my race bike last year from damage!

Jupiter, what was the final result? Ek is seker nou die agter os in die kraal maar het onlangs ń 2007 adv gekoop en het nou die selfde probleem presies soos jy verduidelik het. Fiets was las week vir diens en nou wil die mechanic cylinder heads af strip om te sien wat die geraas maak.

Ek is nie baie lus daar voor nie.

TT, ek het nie die hele thread gelees nie, maar my 2007 (80 000) km en 'n vriend s'n (23 000) maak altwee so. Myne raak nou al hoe stiller hoe ouer hy raak.  ???  Ek is vas oortuig die fietse loop net te "lean". Die probleem is omtrend weg op bo 3000 rpm. 'n Power commander en professionele "tune" sal dit ook oplos as jou budget dit toelaat.

Ek dink ook oor die manier hoe die boxer sy wringkrag lewer is meeste mense geneig on op te lae revs te ry en dan labour die enjin. Sodra die revs hoog genoeg is, is sy so glad soos 'n gebotterde speenvarkie!

Het n Wunderlich controller op my bike gesit maar die nok is steeds daar al is my mengsels ryker  ::)  Kan moontlik iets met die cam chain of tensioners te doen he   ??? Myne is amper op 60K en die geraas het nie erger of beter geword nie so dit lyk my hulle kom wel so uit   :-\

Dankie vir die feedback, dink ook dit is iets met die cam of cam belt te doen.
Was onlangs Mozanbique toe en in die hitte plus minus 40 grade raak dit nogal iriteerend.

Dis die fuelling manne. Daar is oral geskryf daaroor op die internet. Julle gaan niks kry by die cam chains. Die bikes hardloop lean en die probleem raak al hoe erger hoe warmer die bike raak. Ek het my 2005 GS 1200 verkoop vir presies die rede. Myne het selfs krag verloor op warm dae.

Hy maak so... Tik Tik Tik Tik soos jy ry...

BMW het myne hoeveel maps opgelaai. Niks het gehelp.

Power command hom dis al.

Die tensioner sovr ek weet is die een wat die harde lawaai maak as jy die fiets start vir 'n paar sekondes en dan weggaan. Daar was 'n ou op ADV rider wat syne te styf gestel het, ek is nie seker wat hy gedoen het nie. Was vreeslik in sy noppies met die stil fiets vir 'n paar dae, en toe breek daai cam ketting.

Is die Wunderlich controller dieselfde as 'n power commander?

Ek het ń bmc air filter. Na ń lekker goeie skoon maak is die geraas 80% minder. Sal dit meer gereeld moet skoon maak. Ry baie in stof op site.

Daar is wel nog ń ligte geraas so kan dalk die mapping wees.
