  1. What engine oil are you using?

    Servicing and Maintenance
    Oil and weather, lower viscosity means if you intend riding in cold weather then you want an oil with a low viscosity, easier to start, not thick as syrap, save you're battery crank capacity, warm up fast and lubricate effeciently. Remember the chill factor, its an air cooled engine, 5-10...
  2. What engine oil are you using?

    Servicing and Maintenance
    Snake oil's This is one of the major advantages with this engine, it's a dry sump engine, the clutch is dry and doesn't need any specific motorcycle oil to lubricate the clutch, regular engine oil depending on you're weather conditions, seldom you'll be red lining so just read between the lines...

    Njoy the ride man... I do a long one every year but as yet not on the R Nine, done it on an R 1100 S, K1200 and my trusted Super 10 but don't know if I want to do 7000km on an R Nine, I'm not as young as I was ;)

    I've posted this before somewhere in this forum, I found SW Motech custom seat site to be good fun creating you're own seat, not used it yet but will probably do it this spring as I have two seats to play with. https://sw-motech.com/seat+modifications /Dave wearing a turban.

    Then got home and an ate a fat Wurre (sausage for those that don't know what a Wurre is) with some strong kraut mustard and then I knew what heaven was, its on earth after a good brain flush on good old swedish autumn backroads, gravel n tarmac.

  12. Can’t shift into neutral

    BMW NineT General Discussion Forum
    Nothin unusual, its a boxer, worked this out a long time ago, just role it back n forward till it clicks, or keep it in gear at the lights. Although the R Nine has an usually smooth gearbox for boxers it still has the old traits.
  13. Bike died in traffic, won’t start

    BMW NineT General Discussion Forum
    My old man always said he'd never buy us any toys that used batteries ;), fickle things batteries. Ok, did you stall it? Did it even click or even try a pathetic crank? From experience I would say it's the battery voltage being too low, first indication of a week battery is the ABS light...
  14. What about this 2017? I am a buyer prospect.

    BMW NineT General Discussion Forum
    I got mildly infected about a year ago, the infection just got worse and in the end I couldn't sleep at night, finally the fever broke and I received a revelation, my eyes woke wide open, the mist cleared and I understood, the great and merciful blue n white Bavarian god had spoken to me in the...
  15. Oil fill cap sweating

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I've just ordered the replacement cap so I'll keep an eye on it, did notice how tight the stock plastic cap was when I opened it the other day. I've had an aftermarket cap on my R1100S for years and no seepage there, it doesn't sit as tight as this one, actually the way it's constructed I can't...

    Thanks all for making me feel welcome, feels like I've come home again after being out in the cold for years, very cozy, like a warm blanket and a cup of oxo on a cold winters night. Not been in one of these forums for years as I got sick of bickering and besserwissers in previous ones, with...
  17. Stands for Lifting BMW R Nine T

    Accessories and Gear
    I find those front and back lifters get in the way when working on a bike, so I've used one of these center stand lifters from Hornig, does the job and doesn't take up a load of space in the garage. Then one or two of these are a must in any garage, place one under the front forks when you...

    Hi out there all you sensible people. Finally couldn't resist the temptation anymore and succumbed to the allure of the Urban GS. It took months to get round to it but in the end I couldn't resist my reptile instincts anymore, going to bed and waking up in the morning with the same nagging...
