Greetings Folks,

I am seeking help, I bought a 2005 R1150 Adv. a while back and it is down on power that I haven't been able to fix.
I have set the tappets,sync'd the injectors, cleaned the air filter, and replaced the fuel filter. I suspect it may be the stick coils (it is a dual spark). and there is no test you can do to determine if they are faulty ( I have lain them on the cylinder with a plug and they spark but can fail under pressure) the local dealer doesn't carry any in stock as they cost $186 apiece and as is the case with any electrical component once you install it you own it and they might not be the solution.

Therefor I am asking if any of your membership that owns a dual spark 1150 would be kind enough to allow me to try their stick coils in my bike for a short test, a quick once up through the gears would prove it one way or the other.

I can be reached at 250 385 0682 or

Thank you,
Colin MacLennan

Hi folks, I am the new happy owner of a 1976 R60/6.The bike has 71,000 miles and has been meticulously serviced. After an exhaustive search I am turning to you for the skinny on the best semi-synthetic oil for my bike. I have settled on Golden Spectro 4 20W50. I would appreciate your input. I won't ever scrimp on lubricants and see paying more for the best as an investment process. Cheers, Laury

Hello all,

I visited Vancouver in 2009 and really liked the area. Would love to ride my BMW R75/5 in your part of the world. Will do that, soon.
