Oil filter change

OK so this is my first time at doing my own oil change on my Z(2.3). The oil filter kit I got doesn't have the two small o-rings that go on the shaft going thru the filter. There are also no...

Ordered a zipper slide off ebay from someone who also sells replacement windows, so that made me feel a little more confident that it would work. It was still quite a hassle getting it back in, but...

Rear window zipper

Well, I was starting to get water coming thru the separated zipper when it rained, so I decided to bite the bullet and take the window out and try to re-zip it. I was surprised to find there was no...

Zipper pull

I saved a couple of "pulls" off a BMW tank bag that I forgot to send with my K1200LT when I sold it. They say BMW on them and the zipper looks to be, from what I can tell, exactly the same size as...

Rear window zipper

Well I guess it's time to actually do something. I had decided to just leave the window alone since it wasn't getting any worse and wasn't leaking. That is no longer the case. Now I have to try...

Speedometer reads faster than actual speed

My BMW K1200LT bike ( it's common on the bikes too ) had the same trouble. I remember there was a fix that involved soldering a small jumper on the back of the instrument cluster. Has anyone heard...

Water Pump replacement

Wish I had seen the posts recommending water pump replacement at 60,000 before I was stranded on the side of the road in Montana 560 miles from home. Oh, by the way, my odometer at that unscheduled...

Just a thought. I've been trying to zip from the end of the zipper that is exposed. Does it make a difference which direction the zipper is zipped. Are there tabs on both ends of the zipper? Maybe...

Fuel economy is running right around 25 mpg. Seems to be running good. Started running very rough about a month ago, but changing coils took care of that problem.

Zipper tab

Ok, I've tried a couple of zipper slides from the fabric store. I can get the slide on and wiggle it forward but the zipper doesn't want to close behind it. Any suggestions as to where I can get...

Rear window zipper

Actually the top is light tan, must be just the lighting that makes it look lighter. From the center of the zipper it is only separated about 3 inches. Somewhere I think I read something about...

Rear window zipper

The window says BMW on it, I just purchased the car a little over 2 years ago, so I'm not sure if it's original. Seems to be in pretty good shape though. I think the zipper may have opened when I...

Rear window zipper

It looks to me like the zipper is still firmly attached to the window and the top, it is just the two halfs of the zipper itself that are parting. Is there a possibility of getting a zipper tab...
