John,

Count me in, I'll plan to ride in Friday night and camp nearby. I don't need any work done but will just plan to record as much as possible.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

I'll put it on calendar and plan to be there Oct. 6.
I need to do throttle cable update on 2000 LT but afraid to tackle by myself....is this possible to get worked in.
I recently retired to south Alabama and will be easy ride up.
Looking forward to it either way.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

If it is not too late, I would like to join in as well from Lawrenceville Georgia. I have an 03 and would like to watch or perform the brake/clutch line flush & bleed if possible. I will try and order the speed bleeders etc. and fluids to have with me in case you can fit me in. If nothing else, will be fun to watch and learn.

Thanks.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

BMWTWO:

You are welcome to watch but I don't know if there will be time to do your flush. Maybe we can double up and get it in while the coolant and filers are being changed but no guarantees.

I am not real big on speed bleeders but I do recommend their bleed bag and hose ($6). With that it is a one man operation without the grief of changing out the speed bleeders.

MickS

If you can wrench OK and just want guidance I think I can accomodate that. It is pretty simple but much easier if the fuel tank is off.

I already have a DVD that you can pick up when you are here. We may even get your flush done if things go well.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

To keep it simple I will skip throttle update and plan on just meeting, watching and learning.
Thanks for offering guidance.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

OK but if I think I have time we will do it. If nothing else you will get a good look at what it will take when we pull the tank off the demo bike.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Just an update. The only fluids that will be changed is coolant and brake fluid. He has already done the engine, tranny and rear drive oils. This will still involve removal of the fuel tank for the filter change and a valve check. Possible rear tranny seal if we have time.

There will be covered bike parking during the inclement weather (if it happens) I'll be up and about getting stuff ready around 7:30 (CDT). See you all then.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Left Sacramento at 11am yesterday, flew to San Diego to catch a connector to Nashville. Got here about 6PM last night.

Just made the connector, wife and kid in tow... Gawd dam it, if Southwest didn't loose my LT! You'd think they'd keep better track of checked motorcycles now a days...

Long story short... ITS COLD THIS MORNING..

Maybe the next one....

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Dang too bad about loosing the LT. We had a good one and some pretty good BBQ for lunch. There will be more Tech Sessions Hoss and you always have a standing invite.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

***help*** img codes don't seem to be working properly; can't see what i'm doing wrong
Tried changing one from jpg to gif but that still doesn't load
Also, uploaded pictures to the BMWLT Gallery, but I've got to wait for a moderator to approve them??? don't remember having to do that before.


Another great tech session by JZ made better by Jean bringing in delicious Q. I don't know about you guys but I work up a powerful appetite watching other people work.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Thanks for the great day John. We appreciate you and Jean inviting us into your home and shop. Made it home by midnight safe and sound with no wig-wag to be found. Already digging into your video and will tackle my 03 break flush after Barber next week. Makes a lot more sense now as does the valve check and shift linkage lube. Hope to see Greg again soon to try out some of your wisdom on our own.

Thanks again,

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Glad everyone made it home safe and sound. These are better in the summer when there is more daylight available for the trip home. I enjoyed meeting all of you and sharing the shop. Next one will be Mick and his throttle cable install. Will keep everyone posted when that happens.

Re: Tech Session In Hazel Green 10/6

Almost forgot this story -

John is busy working on Danny's bike and the assembled are constantly peppering him with questions. So I pipe up and ask - Is there anyway to install the central locking feature on my 05?
John - Your bike already has it.
Me - No I'm pretty sure it doesn't
John - Let me have your key fob
He presses the ribbed button for a second and Click, the bike locks up. Now mind you I've had the bike for a year and had come to the conclusion that it just didn't have that feature.

I came back home and told Honey Bunny - Look I got this new feature installed at the tech session for FREE!

It was Randy not Danny and I had a ball but was pretty pooped by the time it was all over. Look for another one in the spring (or if we get an indian summer).
