They probably has a point!!

Went out yestardyay, only lasted an hour.

Kickstart wouldnt stay in place after having it welded after cracking,
Kinked fuel line, bike kept cutting out
Battery then died, trie kicking a Berg over time and time again in nasty gnarly trails.
Over heated..
Side stand spring snapped...

Rider proper broken, went home sulking, oh blow half the engine out through one of the breather pipes on the rocker cover...in fairness, some of my issues where not really the fault of the bike, but we were not Friends yesterday.

watch with caution, foul language. lol...

where were you Bjorn?

I know the lad at the beginning I think with the 125KTM, wafe of a lad and I think his "da" might ride too?

met him last year and he helped me at bastard hill (bonkers hill) near Sarn Helen.

it sounds like the air filter is over oiled? might be just the microphone though?

check how many turns out your PS is? has the PS fallen out?

check your tappets. one may be tight.

Sounds like you are in need of a new more qualified mechanic

Another kiwi stopping in to say it's not a kiwi thing it's the Starbuck BMW riders... Sorry for you experience. There a many berg lovers here in NZ. BUT BMW owners are like KTM owner they believe the price tag of their bike buys the superiority over other riders, but all it it is a badge the rest of us can identify them by. The only BMW I would ever consider would be the X Challenge But then it would need all the suspension up graded so not a real option then are they. Especially when you can have all that and much more in blue and yellow weighing in at 109kg...
