Great accomplishment. I'm curious what issues with the bike did you have in the 250,000 Km.
Also I wish you a safe 250,000 Km more.
Hi Scott, from a warm, err hot Sydney Oz,
Yes I have kept a running log of all issues with Beryl Beemer from day 1, (as you would),
hmmmmmm let me see off the top of my head:
3 x rear drive bearings replaced, but early on in the peace, - warranty,
1 x rear brake disc replaced - warranty, HOPELESS rear brake, never use it,
1 x pinion rear drive seal replaced - part warranty,
burnt a hole in an exhaust valve at around 120,000kms, one or two valve shims replaced, cylinder head refurbished
replaced brake lines with Spiegler units
replaced front brake discs (worn to 1/2 thickness),
Keeps wearing out tyres after 20-22,000kms
Engine oil change at around 10,000km, with filter ever other oil change
have changed the air filter a couple of times,
change spark plugs about every 30,000kms or so
Top case one latch failed, removed that failed latch, other is still good,
Radio failed of course
ABS lights have been flashing the last 3 tyre changes ago
rear drive sensor speedo signal cable too tight at cable tie, replaced signal cable joint
have had an oil drip (probably from engine main seal) for the last 10-12 years,
hand grips wearing out, bought "puppies" from LT member, via Chris S.
batteries, changed a couple of them, but buy the $50 version, lasts a couple of years. the one I have in Beryl now I thought would not last the Winter of 2014 (woulda been 2 years old then probably), let alone Winter of 2015, but keep chucking it on the battery tender once a week or so an away it goes.. (Winter time it was each night).
That seems about it.... she keeps on keeping on.
