To bed new engine in I experienced performance iSSueS if you wana call em that...this turned out to be a seized rear brake...whilst on a dual carriageway. I stopped realised the problem, but I couldnt move the bloody in the inside lane of the carriageway I stripped down the rear brake caliper, lubed, checked movement etc, and off I went. But just to make sure, I didnt use it again in fear of it happening again. I stripped it down again at home, nothing found. But still I havnt used it since the first seizure. Today, it started to seize up, just got it home. I repeat, I had not used it. Went out 30min later to find the problem...and it was free, no problem. Just zoomed up to me folks, free haircut and PC usage, and its fine Any ideas? Happend to anyone? Before you ask, yes it has had fluid changed, did it when first got the bike home.,id just get another caliper and see what its like,,,

Need to break in a new bike, I have read it sets the rings better to give it a start duraion of quick burst in 2nd or 3rd gear to load to engine and increase the instinty over 9 cycles or so, but the book...

Most motors that are normally High rev motors need a break in period to correctly seat the rings,, which is why they run a thinner oil for break in , short trips will seat them at a better pace than a long trip which could cause over heating and warp problems, i ran Mine for 500 miles doing short trips in town, ( just remember to watch the battery charge as many starts will drop th voltage down faster than the alt can build it back up) Once I had the 500 miles logged, I changed oil and gave it hell !! enjoy but be safe!! Good Luck

It could be brake linings, ABS or anything to do with engine management. If you do not service the bike yourself, I would get it booked in for a service at your local BMW dealership. They usually lend a bike if you need one.
Hope that helps.

To begin with, I hope nobody was hurt. Having the rear wheel lock up at the wrong time could be hazardous. I hope the damage was limited to the bike. The bike can be fixed.

If the bike had 76,000 miles on it when this happened, I wouldn't classify it as a "frequent problem". Matter of fact, I've never heard of it happening but there seems to be something strange here. I don't know of many 2008 model bikes that have that many miles on them. Matter of fact, I don't know of many bikes PERIOD that have that many miles on them. My 1965 Panhead doesn't have that many miles on it.

Now, you can look for factory recalls. I looked in several places and didn't find anything. If you are still dissatisfied, you can call the customer services at the motor factory and complain. Maybe they'll do something.

Good Luck

Where is the oil plug to my honda 600 1993 shadow i want to change the oil. shoul i change the oil after riding 500 miles @ 75 miles per hour it was changed before i took te trip?

the drain plug is under the motor in left front of the crankcase it faces the out side not straight down, and it is behind the radiator hose. riding the bike at 500 miles at 70 mph will not hurt the oil you only need to change the oil every 3000 miles.

No rear brake master cyl.full

If it has been sitting on the sidestand, the cylinders on the low side occasionally become fouled - which will clear up pretty fast or after changing the plugs. There is probably gunk in the rear caliper from sitting & dealer may want to check the fronts as well. Dealers are really expensive & I would guess that they would want $250 or so just to fix the rear brake issue. When i needed all my calipers cleaned, my dealer wanted almost $1000., so I did them myselves for about $50. Rick

Sticking Rear Brake

Hi Alanmarshall,

I guess the rear brakes system of your bike must be mechanical.
Remove the rear adjusting nut on the brake rod and thn try it , the wheel should rotate freely.
If no, thn theres a problem in the drum and the linnings.. you will hve to remove the back wheel and examine.
If after removing the adjusting nut at the rear rod it moves freely thn theres a problem frm the rod to the brake pedal.
Or it may have been tht the adjustment was too tight without a free play .

Hope this helps!
