    Wetheads Accessories, Mods and DIY's

    Welcome to the Wethead accessories and mod index thread. With the well received introduction of the Wethead, we at the forum find ourselves in a position where we can start making a list of accessories and modifications from the beginning of a model introduction. We at the Moderator Team hope this will be of benefit to the current and future owners of the water cooled BMW.

    There are some real nice threads to start off with and will continue to add and adjust categories as the members present their work to the forum.

    First is number 1 of 4 parts of the actual 1250 Left side Cam Alignment Check followed by 2 of 4 which is the Left side Valve Clearance check.
    After that 3 of 4 is the Right side Cam Alignment Check and finally 4 of 4 is the Right side Valve Clearance check.

    We will endeavor to keep this updated but remember, these are ideas from our members!! If you have an idea, don't be shy - take a few pictures, add a few words and help give a boost to the owners of this fine new bike.

    If you see a thread that should be added or need a little help with your posting, just contact a Moderator and we will take a look. Thanks to all that made this part of the forum a "go to" spot for the Wethead.
