Running in service completed at bmw dealer 558 miles. 25 /06 /20 .Oil and filter changed ,chain Tension adjusted. plus check over and reset service light on dash. Just on 1 hour total time420 miles so far. No issues. Running in 600 mile dealer service booked at Barrie Robsons York. Bought new pair of gloves after 10 years use of Hein Gericke 2 finger mitts. Never thought they would make such a difference to the controls...whole new feel which takes some getting used to.
thanks for the welcome to all.
difficult question.....I thought I had the best bike in the world with the r ninet .. I loved it ....it was like coming home to the twins of the 1970s ...and the exhaust note ....brilliant.What? I have been looking real hard at an R nine T. Could you please explain your comparison I figured they are in totally different arenas.
For me it's the R and Brisbane, otherwise I'm exactly the sameFirst, thank you for your thoughtful response. I'm 45 and the 310gs is my first bike. I really love it has the versatility and fun go anywhere spirit. I just want to go I little faster on the highways here in California. I love the style of the R nine T scrambler. What can I say I'm a sucker for an air cooled boxer motor. I have room in my garage for one more I think the R nine t would do the trick.
I thought that it made a difference to the cold start issue initially, but the higher ron number just prevents premature ignition, it doesn't provide more power. I find that 95ron works perfectly well.still just 750 miles on the clock but running like a dream since the running in service.
Have put U.K. super performance petrol in the tank twice now and that seems to have made a huge difference to pickup power. That’s about 97 octane I think, anybody else using the good stuff? Is it just me thinks makes a difference?
