    Hi all,

    As per the last shipment and from now on, I will also put in the kits the small screws that hold the plate, along with the nuts.

    After you screw them in and tighten the nuts, please punch the end of the screws with a chisel or something close to it, in a "+" pattern, just for safety so the nuts would not fall inside the TB.

    It's very important that you put something to hold resistance on the other end of the screw when you punch it, otherwise the shaft might bend!

    And I would really appreciate some reviews from the riders I have already sent them to.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    Any chance you could post a picture showing the plate etc that you're referring to? Being an amateur I don't want to make any mistakes....

    Thanks Dan

    Hi Ron,

    It's the throttle plate I am talking about

    After you insert it in the shaft and move the pulley a couple of times until it is centered, put the screws in the kit inside the shaft and tighten them. Then secure them with the nuts and then you punch the end of the screws in the "+" pattern, to make sure the nuts would not come off because of the vibration or anything. They should not come off anyway, but just as a safety measure...

    Halo Dan. I'm Olivier from Athens Greece

    I have a 850 GS in the need for a kit for the left side. Could you please sent me an email with pricing in euros for the kit and shipping and payment instructions.

    My mail is lorensolivie@hotmail.com

    I think this throttle body o the bike was changed with one fro a 1100 GS, but they are the same right? So it's the same kit from you.?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would not use that because it might wash away from gas or maybe it could harm the O2 sensor. That's why I thought the nut and the punch in the screw would work best.

    Is it ugly getting the throttle bodies totally removed to do this "procedure"?

    Again, I am not receiving email notifications from this topic :|

    Don't know what you mean by ugly, actually I enjoy rebuilding them :) It's mot that hard, no need for expensive tools, just a little time consuming if you do it for the first time.

    I guess the hardest part is to take off the old bushings out, but as I have found, it's very easy if you use a screw tap or a extractor bit from the kit of broken screws extractors, or anything else conical that has a thread on it.

    I have been asked by a number of BMW boxer owners now, what about the TB's that have the pulley pressed onto the shaft. So, some of them, for later years, the pulleys get on the shaft and then they have a hole in the middle, which is punched so that the pulley stays fixed on the spindles.

    The spindles that I supply for such TB's have a hole and inside thread, screw and washer that are used to hold everything in place. So you can just punch out the old shaft with something round and hard, having the OD =< 5 mm and you can easily break those apart and use my spindles. Just use the force, nothing else :)

    And once again, remember to punch the small M3 screws after putting the plate inside, in a "+" pattern, as a safety measure.

    Hi all,

    Two nights ago, I was having some maintenance done on a friend's r1100gs, a '95. After adding paralever bushings, changing oils and adjusting the valves, it was time for sync. As soon as I started the bike to warm it up, I could hear the clatter on the R/H side, coming from the intake. As I put finger pressure on that side's pulley, the ticking sound stopped.

    Since it was late and we had no time to fix the TB, I just tried to sync the bike with the intake as it was. For idle speed, all was fine, but when it came to syncing it @ 2500 rpm, it would just fluctuate. I was using the Harmonizer that I got from an inmate here - it's a very nice tool and easy to use.

    So as I was setting the cable right, if I came back at idle speed and then back to 2500rpm or above, the bike was every time out of sync, indicating values for about 40 50 mbar on one side. Adjusting it again, dropping at idle and then revved again, the Harmonizer would again indicate that the bike was out of sync every time.

    The point is that until now, I knew that a clattering intake would make sync close to impossible, but now, I know that for sure.

    Hi Dan. I am after one of the throttle body repair kits for the RH side on my 1996 R1100GS that has developed the dreaded rattle at idle. Can you let me know the cost to supply and send to Wellington, New Zealand please. I have recently bought the bike and it has only done 25,000kms (I have the full service history) so should it be developing this problem after so few kms?

    You can emal me on m_osborne@xtra.co.nz


    Thanks

    I wanted to give a shout out to Dan and thank him publicly for this kit and the web instructions. It didn't go smoothly, but the kit was good and now the bike sounds like a beemer should. :clap
