I wanted to, even after I spent last week in bed with pneumonia, but Kevin just told me all sales guys will here on Saturday. Jeremy will be there on a G450X and so will one of our customers Casey Newell. Do you need us to carry anything for you? Let me know,

R 1200 GS
1: In the rear drive of the R 1200 GS the ring gear is supported by two types of bearings:
one floating bearing and one fixed bearing without preload. Inherent in this design
is a small amount of bearing play at the rear wheel. With all components manufactured
and assembled to stated tolerances it is possible that play in these bearings can be felt
and measured at the rear wheel. This type of bearing play has no effect on motorcycle
handling or on the durability of the bearings.
2: There is a possibility of play developing between the splined wheel flange (P/N 33 17
7 668 659) and the axle tube of some motorcycles manufactured prior to 08/2004, US
VIN# ZL 76187.
1: In the event of a customer complaint, an inspection and measurement of rear wheel
bearing play is to be performed as described below. With cold components the total
play (back and forth travel) allowable at the wheel rim edge is 1mm(maximum). Refer to
the R 1200 GS Repair Manual CD for measuring procedures as well as temperature definition
of "cold components". Replace the entire rear-wheel drive assembly if the play
exceeds specifications.
2: If the complaint is "bearing play at the rear wheel" you must first check that the
splined flange is secure before performing the measurement noted in point #1. When
rocking the rear wheel back and forth, you must first make sure there is no movement
between the wheel flange, the rear wheel and the axle tube.
If play is noticeable between these components you must replace the entire rear wheel
drive assembly (complete with flange). Replacing the splined wheel flange only will not
solve the situation, because in all probability the splines on the axle tube will have suffered
some degree of wear as well. If you are in doubt, you are requested to contact your
respective Aftersales Business Consultant.
Warranty: Covered under the terms of the New Motorcycle Limited Warranty.
Important Note: Screw 1 is a drain
plug for repair-related oil changes; it is
not for checking the oil level. When filling
the rear drive assembly with oil,
pour in the defined quantity (0.25 l for
initial fill, or 0.23 l for oil changes)
through the bore for the ABS sensor.
We highly recommend using BMW
Super Synthetic Gear oil. 75W 90, P/N

Bring your 50cc and race in the fast fiddy race to be held right after the big race ends- I'd guess around 3:00 p.m. or so.

I'd love to see Infidel all geared up on a 50!!

OK, but it was NOT pretty.......

I was cleaning out the garage today and found a few 990 parts. If any utard wants them before I put them on fleamarket.

A set of crash bars used well and many times and needs to be re aligned to fit on bike . Free to someone that will use them well and often. If you take these you have to take the plastic lower tank protector I have right side and it's new in the plastic.

Come and get it.

I'm heading out to knolls in the morning on the se. Probably leaving around 8:30-9:00 if anyone is interested. Planning on hitting dirt in grantsville or delle and trying to go the rest of the way to knolls on dirt. Need to be there around 10:30 to sign up for the race so it won't be a scenic ride. six six niner two niner fiv eight.

Only a pussy would think those two things are mutually exclusive.

True. They're not exclusive, as we proved in Mesquite....or....rather, "I" proved in Mesquite. Infidel didn't even finish his flask of tequila!

Anyway, Sunday should be a good day to ride. 5 mile on big bikes?
