    I'm an on-road rider only located in Dracut MA. I ride western Mass, NH and VT quite a bit. When I can, I try to break free for a ride on a Saturday or Sunday. There should be some good Fall riding coming up, if anybody interested in meeting let me know in advance.

    Looking toward March rides

    Getting sick of the winter so I'm checking maps looking for good day long rides out of Boston. Anyone ridden to the summits of either Mt Graylock or Mt Tom in western Mass? Look good but I'd rather avoid riding the brake the whole ride down if that's what it is. Thanks

    All on road and another black sheep (non-BMW owner). Live near Burlington, MA. I ride fairly regularly with some BMW owners, which is how I found out about this group. Nice to expand connections.

    I'm located in Laconia, NH. Being new to NH I'm up for any exploration of NE, just as soon as I can get these TB's synched after an Dan Cana rebuild kit.

    Something you might consider is a one-day on-road course with Ken Condon. See: https://www.ridinginthezone.com I had a great day a couple of years ago with Ken and two other BMW riders in a course in which he taught us all kinds of useful things. Part of the course took us up to the top of Mt. Greylock north of Pittsfield. His lessons on lane placement really stuck with me and those lessons have become a habit.

    Knowledge needed...in NE

    Hi all. I posted this in the garage, but wanted to post it here as well, in the off chance that someone near the NH area has the time and experience to help me out.

    Within the last two weeks, I installed the Dan Cana TB kit on my '99 RT w/65K. Being a first time doing this procedure myself, I had to move a few of the screws to reseat the butterfly's. I have the bike back together and she's running pretty well at warm idle, a bit high (~13-1500rpm). I took the BBS's out and cleaned them before reseting them to the 1 1/2 turns out, I have both throttle cables back to where they were visually (yes, I failed to mark them).

    I have hooked my homemade manometer up only to find that the right cylinder (as your sitting on the bike) is pulling pretty hard, so hard that I can't make any adjustments before the ATF fluid is sucked into the TB. I understand that the ATF won't hurt anything, correct me if I'm wrong please.

    I have synched the TB's in the past, but not when I've had to move the TB's screws.

    I'm looking for suggestions and assistance in getting my girl back on the road feeling better, lord knows I need to be back out there as well.

    *Addition*

    (Warm engine) right side BBS is closed completely, throttle cable all the way down. Still pulling (on the manometer) very hard to the right. Could this be an idle screw issue? Do I need to focus on the left TB to counter the pull?

    When at idle, if I manually open the right side TB, the engine bogs down, as if it's not getting spark. Pulled the plug and verified that there is spark with the spark plug.

    I'm at a loss on what to do. Any help/advice would be appreciated.



    Thanks
    Derek
