Re: Spark Plugs Fouling (need help urgent)

Coil? I can't remember the coil arrangement for the RT but if you swap over the coil outputs for each cylinder and the problem moves to the other cylinder ...

Spark Plugs Fouling (need help urgent)

Evening Chaps, After finally taking my old 96 R1100RT out for a test ride after almost a year off-road after installing the new 'John Gemi Chip', she ran like an arse. Popping occasionally, terrible low rpm running, occasional cut out at idle, basically all of the symptoms of low fuel, so I put in a...

LED Ring on waterheads

Morning Chaps, As I am currently looking for an RT, I am curious about the LED ring, which if I am correct in saying is called a 'corona ring'? I know this is a factory optional extra, my question is if this can be bought and installed separately as I do quite fancy it (in case my purchased RT doesn...

Re: R1100RT 96 Mirror Pods

Thanks for the reply Jaythro, I have a used front subframe now coming from ebay, hopefully that will at the very least, elimate that as a potential issue, at £26 it hardly broke the bank lol.

Yeah the petals are a common issue that I know of, I have tightened all the spring connections.

R1100RT 96 Mirror Pods

Afternoon Chaps, I have an R1100RT and after an off last year, I am struggling to get the mirror pods to sit on quite right still, I am in the process of getting more from motorworks (waiting on a call back), we had to bend the nose cone subframe back into shape and it looks fine, however is there a...
