  1. in order...not the pic...bolt ,washer, hardbag, washer,, nut, washer wingnut, pin ( though hole drilled in end of bolt)
  2. it all depends on what you are willing to do.. straps ?suction cups ? or do what serious touring guys do.. drill and put bolts from the inside out. harley and bmw guys drill mounting points for soft bags by locking the bolt down on the out side and often using wing nuts and pins to mount the extra bag and allows for quick removal.
  3. very good chance your R?R is fried. several times in the shop bike have come in, i swap the fuse and it blows right away. i replaced the r/r and presto problem gone.
  4. iu like mr bungles Slowly Growing Deaf too!!
  5.

LOVE IT!!
  6. this may help a little... https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocial/reviews/bikes/bmw/bmw-f900r-2020-review-spec-price https://www.revzilla.com/common-tread/2020-bmw-f900r-first-ride-motorcycle-review?utm_source=CJ&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=6146887&PublisherName=VigLink&cjevent=2c15f29278ed11ea802c00e40a240610 f900r = another bmw with a hard seat and snatchy throttle. "One result of the wet weather is that I am able to tell you with great confidence that the F 900 R’s rain mode is pointless. As standard, the bike comes with two riding modes — Rain and Road — and you can pay more to get Dynamic and Dynamic Pro. You will never want to use Rain. BMW should rename it “Sadness.” Choose this mode only if your life is full of too much joy, or if you’re lending the bike to a friend and you want him to give up motorcycling"

  9. a little update about the vfrDEAFNESS thread.... I AM NOW A CYBORG!! Got my head drilled and skull ground shaved and implant installed.. now..... holy crap! 30 years of music to catch up on... so.. anyone close to hagerstown who can teach me the guitar or bass in exchange for work done o their bike/ bikes ?
  10. my cut and paste brake/ clutch help..before you start.. get your drink of choice.. bleeding the clutch and brake lines.. its so damned easy a cave man can do it.take a clear tube.works best if the tube has about 8 inches going UP from the nipple then curving down.. use a zip tie or tape to hold it up..that way you have a good clear view of whats coming out before it dumps . and place on brake/slave nipple. it should be snug or tight..angle bars so the brake MC is level.. take the top off...loosen nipple at the brake/slave.. sit back and have a beer..or your fav drink...GRAVITY will do its job.. no squeezen , no pumpin , no bitchen , no yellin , no screaming , no fuzz, no muss. look as fluid enters tube.. any bubble? or just fluid? nasty colored ? or clear ? add new fluid to the mc as it gets LOW...tighten nipple when you feel enough fluid has gone through.. normally about 2/3 cup for me.. repeat with other side.place cap on MC. squeeze lever. does the brake firm up? wheel stop? good!if not. remove MC FROM BAR.. angle so the hose is at the lowest spot aka end of lever pointed at the sky... tap hose and mc with a screwdriver handle to move any bubbles trapped in the banjo bolt area.repeat on clutch..place in 1st gear and give a squeeze.. it will not be anywhere close to the firmness of a brake.. does the bike roll? presto youre done. the rear is almost the same.. you just need to slowly pump the foot lever and watch the fluid rise in the clear tube until its nice and clear. then tighten nipple.
  11. first check for loose engine mounting bolts . motor shakes harder with the clutch engaged.. i have never encountered loose springs on the BACK of the clutch... and honda doesnt even show them on the parts finch.
  12. i used the Meguiars kit on my 2000 civic.. worked great comes with multi grit pads and a pack of liquid to hard clear coat the final finish.
