Thread: Metzger k block front bike tire for rig

    Metzger k block front bike tire for rig

    I have a Metzler K block as a pusher. It has raised the rear of the bike about two inches. I've added about one quart of oil to compensate,but I'm making educated guesses on this. To level everything up I want to put another K block on the front .Will this cause the steering to be hard ? It's already quite physical.

    How about some more info on your hack? Also, what did you add a quart of oil to? I can't think of anywhere on a BMW that I'd exceed the manufacturer's capacities except by adding an oil cooler or a deep oil pan. Stay well, ride easy.

    BMW motorcycles go up hills and down hills with no need to add any oil to compensate for not being level.
