Legend tells of a two-wheeled monster that burns gas, goes fast, and preys on the weak and the uninformed. It lures its prey with promises of good times, thrills and excitement but rips their head off if it as much as smells complacence. We set off on a spooky quest in search of these mechanical monsters…

  • ***BMW FAULTY SPOKE WHEELS FEB2018-JUNE2018 - NO RECALL?*** I tell you what could potentially kill motorcyclists: motorbike manufacturers do not seem to have the same obligations as their 4 wheel counterparts. I take one recent example which you may have heard about at FortNine since your main protagonist rides a BMW. In Australia the front spokes wheel of a 2016 BMW R1200 GS proved faulty and one particular rider faceplanted in the outback resulting in months of operations and reeducation of his valuable limbs... The front wheel literally collapsed at reasonable low speed (50/60kph if I recall) under his own weight on a bumpy road. The rider was still extremely lucky to make it alive. Now that was in Australia and I live in New Zealand and I owned a BMW R9T Scrambler... with spoke wheels, similar design. There has not been a single recall from BMW, not a call, not an email "you may have heard about that guy in Australia...", nothing from BMW. In fact the only way I found about it was by searching spoke wheels for R9T on the web. Judging by the article (link below) which dates from December 2018, there was a "probe". Even the local "licensed" BMW mechanic I go to for my services has not contacted me. I have contacted BMW in Germany 3 months ago and I am yet to receive any feedback. Have you guys heard anything from BMW wherever you live Canada, Europe or even Australia? I have not. I have contacted the local authorities, their answer: take it to the manufacturer... which begs the question: how do recall work in the World of Motorcycling then? It just does not seem to apply. Meanwhile, I pay every year 7 times the cost of a car registration renewal because I quote "bikers are more likely to cost the taxpayers for hospital expenses of long duration". No kidding, how cynical is that. Have you guys heard from it in North America? Any recall from BMW Motorrad? Any communication on the subject of faulty spoke wheels? That's pretty serious stuff especially when many riders have their partner or a passenger at the back. And yet, I have heard nothing from BMW. The design of the spoke wheels has not changed from what I see and it is being used across several models of BMW GS, R9T and so on. So, what's going on at BMW and is it an industry trend?

  • I had just bought a brand new 250F dirt bike. (I had an 80 when I was a kid) The first time I open it up down a long straight road I hit a cross rut that slaps the bars out of my hands and I'm steering with my chest with my feet in the air. I get a close look at the ground flying by under my front wheel as the whole process of how I ended up in the position flashed before my eyes. Talking to a dealer, financing, buying a ramp, brand new gear, boots, helmet, new pipe, triple clamps, bars, not a scratch on anything and it's about to all go bad, and I think this might have been a terrible idea..... Then somehow I miraculously recover. I think I still might have one more dirt bike in me if I just putt around on it. 😉

  • Shrink fitting a wheel bearing isn't somthing I'd recommend myself. It pays to know the bearing is tight enough in the hub and not loose, due to a previous bearing spinning in the hub. Especially on dirtbikes! A loose bearing in the hub can be solved by getting an oversize bearing (6203, 6204 etc do indeed have options for slightly o/s O/D, also available with extra clearance like in 125 2 stroke main bearings) or a little bit of loctite carefully applied. Use loctite primer for best results. ;-)

  • Nice video. I live in Bangkok and can attest to the headlight problem - a lot of the motorbikes (aka scooters and they are everywhere) have headlights that are out. I rented a Honda Grom for a month from a well-regarded motorbike rental company and while the headlight worked it looked like the chain had never been lubed since the chain was new - rusty and a mess. Having said all this, as far as the "big bikes" are concerned, the Thai's ride them with little regard for safety. I rarely see them being ridden calmly, sanely by Thai's.

  • Quick note on side stands. They can kill. I was once riding a rented Harley, pulling out of a parking lot when a guy pulled up next to me and kept pointing at my bike. Good thing I paid attention to him, he probably saved my life. The bike had gone into gear with the side stand down and I had managed to pull away without noticing. Next left turn would have gone badly...

  • If you have a bike with a shaft drive don't think that they're maintenance free. If a bearing goes in those things or you forget to change the oil you're screwed. I had a bearing go in my final drive once and it nearly locked up the rear.

  • Hey everyone! talking about maintenance. I constantly got flat tires after making my CG 125 Honda to go either, under heavy rain, or as Two days ago, after traveling for about 150 miles (around 240 kilometers), in a day, it happened again. My motorcycle has the same type of wheel as Ryan's; spoked wheel. Why am I having this annoying situation every time? Tire doesn't get flat immediately but after over night, then any of the two tires, is flat next day in the morning. I don't have an idea why is happening constantly this to me. Hope you could help me with it. I'm desperate because this has happened more than 6 times in less than a year. Thank you so much! Kudos to all from Mexico.

  • Brake fluid should be changed when it starts to darken regardless of time or miles. Heat brakes down brake fluid and starts turning it darker. If you have a bike that has a hydraulic clutch it most often uses DOT4 just like the brake system and almost always turns dark or black long before the brake side because the clutch slave cyl is exposed to constant heat from the motor and the brakes mostly build heat when being used.

  • Working as a repair tech in a machine shop I saw bearings from Thailand fail at an alarming rate. About 3% fail immediately and another 5% before I'm done testing my repairs. I'm sure bearings purchased through a motorcycle parts distributor will be held to a higher standard, but with most affordable bikes from Japanese brands being made in Thailand it is cause for concern. If you're changing your wheel bearings, buy extras, test for a couple miles, then check it again. If it lasts that long it's good. For what it's worth, bearings from China were slightly better. I don't have enough experience with bearings from Germany, Vietnam, Japan, or Indonesia to judge them. I never had any problems with bearings from Singapore or America.

Pulling in the clutch didn’t even stop it from grinding a flat spot in the tire as I was somehow able to keep it vertical until it stopped. Luckily for me I was on a straightaway!

  • My bike especially wants to kill me. every month or so something breaks and I have to take it in to the garage to repair it. I've had my rear wheel lock up at 30 mph, the front wheel loose a bolt such that if I hit a solid bump the wheel would have 100% fallen off of one side, I've had brake cables fail and cause me to loose breaking, tire failures, and all kinds of dangerous problems. As a result I'm now very very good at feeling mechanical issues before they occur and staying calm when they happen suddenly and acting accordingly. None of those problems ever threw me off because I knew just what to do. When my rear wheel locked up I stood up on the bike and gently guided it to a stop keeping the wheels in line. The bike is a 66cc 2 stroke motorized bicycle with a top speed of 40 mph. Every component in it, is shit. Hence the high failure rate.
