Question about 2000 BMW R 1100 RS

1 Answer

Noise Hi, Im new to this forum and thought I would try this section of the forum. I have a nicr 1100 rs Interstate with 7500 miles. Am getting an awful grinding noise and vibration form what I think is the u-joint at the front of the drive shaft. Is there an easy service/replacement procedure I can do, or should I take it to a dealer. It's at the point I'm afraid to ride the bike for fear of driveshaft failure whhile on the road.

Don't know about Wings, but on a bm,w Paralever only accepted fix is to replace driveshaft. BMW uses swedge type u-joints that cannot be replaced. There is a way to use ATV u joints but requires welding and machining. The paralever driveshafts last about 40K. and cost arround $400 (in 99)

1991 CB 250 Nighthawk: whats the top speed for a 1991 honda nighthawk 250...


I have had my 2008 Nighthawk 250 up to 70mph with some left over. I just got it so I haven't really run it full throttle yet ( 75 miles on the OD ) I weight 300 lbs. I would guess 80 on a flat road. I felt comfy at 70 but this is my 5th bike. I bought this one for the gas mileage and 1 yr. warranty. I will try actual top speed on the Interstate in about 1000 miles. Hope this helps. I like the bike. Chris

My 97 suzuki gsxr 1100. start but that is it Help.


Rebuild the top end? Run screaming from that shop. The fact that they said they couldn't sync the carbs should have been your first clue. I would have been suggesting a fuel problem anyway but take it to a shop that knows what it's doing and you should be fine but you will probably have to replace th spark plugs because of the fuel problem.
