heli_madken and the cure?
OK, second message here, now that I've finished 18 pages (while at work, no less!)
quick clarifier heli_madken if I may, looking at your second picture of the left side of the bike, and that you state that you turned the actuator anti- (or counter-) clockwise, does that mean that you effectively turned it towards or into the midline of the bike, is that right? am I interpreting your perfectly adequate phrasing correctly?
Just want to be sure, as I will pay attention now for the next few 1000 km and see if I hear the now well-described sound,
It's really fantastic that such a real-world problem could possibly have such a straightforward resolution,
on another note, but related to engine rpm etc., can you guys and anyone else with 1250 gsa experience, comment for me on cruising rpm's in 6th typical for you around 100 km/h or so? i.e., my 2001 Yamaha FZ1 (awesome engine, still going on Motul 300V at 150 000 km!) would sound perfectly smooth and happy, almost as if by design, to be at about 4000 rpm (1000cc inline 4) in 6th at usual highway speeds of about 100 km/h,
so as this, my first boxer and first BMW, is so new to me I have no idea of where that, sort of, sweet spot, is. What rpm are people settling out near to, at about 100 km/h?
cheers, you guys have been fantastic to read this afternoon, at work, . . . definitely a good board to belong to now . . .
