    Thanks KK! I kinda agree with you that pillion rail would look good on the bike with current look, but my plan is to make it a bit more in (very mild) chopper style, and I’m thinking about different more narrow and lower seat, especially on the back. So I suppose pillion rail would then look odd.

    Cheers, Marko

    After 2 years (and 10 days) my twin passed the MOT equivalent and is registered again!
    Rode the bike for good 100 km today, I am a happy man 🙂

    Here is at the front of the registration office, with fresh licence plate.

    Cheers,

  • Hello,

    first sorry for triple post above, I do not know how that happened.

    I am posting a couple of fresh picture of my twin. As you may have noticed, the handlebars are new – a bit wider and higher, feels more like a cruiser now and that was the intention. Had to change the clutch cable because of that for a longer one. Also, I had to re-chrome…[Read more]

    Hello everybody,

    I just wanted to say hi after a long time! I hope you are all well and healthy.

    My Twin is still running well, just needs some attention from time to time. In the meanwhile, I bought another twin – well kind of, it is BMW F800R. I use it mostly for daily commute to work , not a bad bike to be honest. Here is a summer photo of my…[Read more]

    Hi Michael,

    this time we passed three of those passes (Sella, Pordoi and Campolongo), and I haven’t seen any such signs. The “Sellaronda Bike day” was on Saturday, so the road was open only for cyclists on that day, and a lot of people were practicing already on Friday when we were there.

    I heard that some people are complaining about the…[Read more]

    Hi guys!
    I spent last weekend with my son in the Dolomites, not with a Twin but with a car. Nevertheless, it was great and it is definitely one of the best destinations to travel with a motorcycle (or a car), truly spectacular roads and scenery.

    Here are some photos, if you need any fresh information about the roads, just ask.
    Cheers,
    Marko

  • I will check the connections over the weekend, maybe I will find the solution. I suppose there is also a possibility that the petcock is not functioning properly anymore.

    Cheers, Marko

  • Thanks KK!

    I haven’t fix the starter clutch yet and I am not sure what has gone wrong with petcock valve, it worked fine before the “restoration”. At the moment, the fuel is not passing through when the valve is at “ON”, so when the engine is running, I have to put the valve at “PRI”. Is it possible that we connected the pipes wrongly or…[Read more]

  • Hello!

    Few photos from yesterday’s ride. I found a newly paved road with lots of turns and a lot of fun!

    Cheers, Marko

  • Hi guys!
    Finally, the bike is registered and on the road again! This weekend I was on a 250 km trip, and made it safely home. There are still a couple of issues to be addressed, first is the starter clutch: starter works fine, but the clutch is slipping. Still, I was able to start it with starter almost every time. Second issue is the petcock…[Read more]

  • A couple of progress photos – hopefully everything comes together again!

  • Thanks KK, I sent you a private message. In addtition, we decided that we’ll use standard size psitons, so I am looking for a set of those.

    Cheers, Marko

  • Hi KK,

    we will check again if oversized pistons are really necessary, in case we’ll need standard ones I’ll let you know.

    I do not understand much German, but I assumed that oversized pistons in various sizes (+0.25, +0.50,…).are available in the shop that Michael posted above (Scheuerlein).

    Cheers, Marko

  • Hi guys,

    thanks to both of you!

    I will have to speak to my mechanic first, but I think that we’ll need a bit larger pistons. Thanks Michael for the link, I will check if we can get them here first.

    KK, I am interested in the high tensile studs kit, could you please send the price and method of payment (I can pay with PayPal)?

    Cheers, Marko

  • Hello again!
    Here’s an update: the piston ring on the left cylinder was almost gone, I guess that explains the oil consumption and smell from the exhaust. It seems that we will need to change the pistons as well. The next thing on the shopping list are the engine gaskets, do you have any recommendation for the complete set?

    Cheers, Marko

     

     

  • Thanks, since they are not so expensive I’ll try one of those and see how they sound.
