    Impeach the Motherf _ _ _ _ _

    Wrong, not left out of article conveniently. I felt like that article was but one example handy to insert at the moment. Didn't want this to become a trucking industry thread, but when called out this is my response. I do find the comment about not the Presidents fault nor a sign of the economy to be downplayed to support the President and policies. Especially since Trumps trade policies are a direct influence. Time will prove one of us correct. Now for those that don't believe my first post about the trucking industry... https://www.wsj.com/articles/trucking-company-shutdowns-grow-as-shipping-market-cools-11567104495 If business does better playing by the rules, then so will this country when the President follows the laws. "About 640 trucking companies went bankrupt in the first half of the year, according to industry data from Broughton Capital LLC. That's more than triple the roughly 175 bankruptcies from the same period last year. ACT Research has said America's $800 billion trucking market entered a recession early this year"

    Easy way to get top dead center 1100RT BMW

    Morning WOLF Yes, see instructions. Rotate engine until the (OT) mark is lined up with center of timing hole. (see #3 below). You don't need to lock there just make sure that it stays centered during the setting procedure. Operating Instructions: Unplug the Hall Trigger Sensor from the wiring harness Ensure that the piston is locked at Top Dead Center. Insert the Hall Tester in line between the hall sensor and the factory harness Power is supplied by the vehicles electrical system. Rotate the hall sensor plate to the point where the LED turns on - indicating the point of ignition. Note that if the light stays on a little whilst rotating the hall sensor plate then the precise point of ignition is at the very point where it turns off again - slightly more curate. Be advised that working on the ignition requires special precautions due to very high voltages - always see a professional if you encounter problems If you need further advise hopefully someone else will follow up as I don't know when I will be back on this site.

    Celadon’s woes couldn’t possibly have been the result of the securities fraud allegations filed against them. Two former company officials charged in the fraud scheme. They paid $42.2 million earlier this year for falsely reporting profits and assets. Conveniently left out of your linked article. Hardly the President’s fault nor a sign of where the economy is headed. Business does a lot better when it plays by the rules.

  14. BMW has been teasing its massive new 1,802cc Big Boxer engine for some time, showcasing the mill in customs from Zon and Revival Cycles, and within concepts like the R 18. Earlier this year we also got a glimpse at the production version of the bike to be powered by this unmistakable powerplant. That’s all to say that BMW’s made no secret of the new cruiser platform on the horizon, but details on the specifics of the engine have been sparse until now. The design of the Big Boxer blends old tech with new tech. (BMW/)From the outside it’s clear that the design of the engine is rooted in BMW’s history, and so too are many of its technical features. It’s got separate engine and transmission housings and an OHV valve drive design similar to some of the earliest boxer engines produced by the brand. BMW looked specifically to the R 5/R 51 and R 51/2 for inspiration with the valve drive, mimicking the dual camshaft configuration in the Big Boxer. The latest engine has two camshafts positioned to the right and left above the crankshaft, allowing pushrods to be shorter and thereby reducing moving mass within the engine. This also serves to make the valve drive more stiff, allowing for better precision and stability. Meet the 1,802cc Big Boxer. (BMW/)The modern amenities of the four valve per cylinder system include dual ignition, intake manifold injection, and the BMS-O engine management system, all geared to provide peak torque and power while optimizing consumption and keeping emissions down. The aluminum engine housing is vertically split. (BMW/)When fuel is served up though the 41.2mm inlet valves, it fires within piston chambers that have 107.1mm bore and 100mm stroke, with spent gases exiting 35mm outlet valves. The cast aluminum pistons inside are driven by a tempered steel crankshaft that features an additional main bearing at the center to reduce bending vibration. They live within cylinders coated with Nikasil and are lubricated and cooled by a wet-sump lubrication system with two-stage oil pump that operates by way of a sleeve-type chain driven by the crankshaft. Cast aluminum pistons are driven by a tempered steel crankshaft within Nikasil-coated cylinders. (BMW/)Each of the steel valves is adjusted by an adjusting screw, similar to many of BMW’s classic air-cooled engines of the past, allowing valve clearances to be adjusted easily. Big Boxer deconstructed. (BMW/)The aluminum engine housing is split vertically and utilizes air-cooling in addition to oil-cooling thanks to large ribbed cylinder housings. In total, the engine weighs 244.3 pounds. As for output, there’s 91 hp available at 4,750 rpm and 116.6 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm. Revs top out at 5,750 rpm and engine idle is set at 950 rpm. The six-speed transmission is housed in a separate aluminum housing at the rear of the main engine housing. (BMW/)All that power is transmitted to the rear wheel by way of a universal shaft drive and dry single-disc, anti-hopping clutch. The six-speed transmission is housed inside the second aluminum housing directly behind the primary engine housing. It utilizes a four-shaft design with helical gear pairs, with an input shaft with lug dampers driving two gearbox shafts and an output shaft that reverses the direction of rotation. Riders will also be able to add reverse gear functionality to the engine as an accessory, which is driven by an intermediate gear and electric motor. BMW has achieved the largest two-cylinder boxer engine of all time with the Big Boxer, and the uniquely nostalgic/modern mill promises to be quite a treat for cruiser riders. Elegantly designed.

    When you come to use that torch, be VERY careful. It can very easily destroy the paintwork. The Swing arm is painted / powder coated silver. You need to get a lot of heat into it, but not in such a way as to burn the paint. Remember you are trying to get the loctite (which in on the pivot pin) to break down. So keep the focus of the heat on the pivot pin mot so much the whole housing. As DR mentioned earlier, a heat gun is much more useful than a butane torch. Just be careful.

    GPS or Phone Mount, R1150RS

    I bought a USB connector at Cycle Gear and attached directly to the battery and ran the end up to the handle bar area and secured with plastic tie wraps. Works great. You may want to get a dual USB as then you don't have to disconnect to work the other gear, if you have multiple devises. I have a Ram mount for my GPS and the same mount works for my iPhone 6.

    I did not catch that part of the video... I'm still hunting down the tools here...that is the biggest challenge... Got lucky and found the 30mm socket but have to get the 12mm hex create which is crazy lol... Torch I can get today Straps as well... Here they believe in man power over exspensive lifts... But I'm pricing a ton lift in the industrial area... To be honest I'm more concerned about getting the parts stolen from customs... and them holding the package for ransom... and take more money to get them released...

    Those look like they’ll work! Thank. Ram Mount seems to have a lot of options for mounting systems. Any idea on the best way to get a USB port up to the bars? Craig

    You have got to be kidding me,........

    The (con)artist used a knock off brand of tape, it isn't not genuine branded duct tape. No way would I pay $120K for counterfeit D-tape!

    Not sure if you can use the bolts just inside the forks but I have a couple of these: Ram Mount Motorcycle Base with 9mm Hole and 1-Inch Ball https://www.amazon.com/Mount-Motorcycle-Base-Hole-1-Inch/dp/B0012TRIY4/ref=sr_1_11?keywords=ram+nut+ball+mount&qid=1575947418&sr=8-11
