I'd be very wary of using compressed air with brake fluid in the system. DOT 3/4/5.1 is one of the best and fastest acting paint removers available. Feel free to ask me how I know. I'd also be...

Fluid can get behind them even if they are fully seated. If the lever is squishy, it's air. You'll need to bleed them while rotating the caliper to make sure the inner chambers are higher than the...

Nice. I once made an engine stand for a 2V Ducati out of 2x4's in the shape of an inverted pi symbol. Something like that with unequal 'risers' might work given the dished sump on the 675.

No worries. It's only obvious to those of us who experienced it. Could be worse; the last two times I stopped for a bike stranded on the side of the road all they needed was to have the fuel tap...

I see nobody has replied. I expect that's because no one has a clue how the immobilizer works. And I don't either. But my best guess is that there is an intermittent bad electrical connection to...

I take it you mean running on two cylinders. Maybe it was and the imbalance caused the noise. Or ingested something that got past the air filter. Or could the sound have been a pre-ignition knock?...

Somewhere, maybe on this forum, I've seen suggestions that the buttons can become frozen. Other than that, all I can suggest is a change of pads. They do age out.

I would expect that any local shop would know which cans are legal, or would slip polizei notice. I believe it's the EU that controls motor vehicle noise limits instead of Germany.

Never rule out the battery. If it fired up on the starter, you could have a broken plate in the battery that sometimes connects and sometimes doesn't. I would not have thought a bad R/R would...

First thing is check the battery terminal connections -- pull them off and clean them (my first thought with the gauges sweeping was a loose connection). Then the connections to the starter and the...

IIRC the plug for the O2 sensor on my '13 was somewhere around there. No idea whether an '06 even has such a thing. Edit: sorry, that was on the other side of the bike. Never mind.

The only thing I'd worry about is the leaking fluid. There is a coolant line behind the sprocket cover and it is easy to route it incorrectly so that it rubs against the chain and then leaks...

I can now confirm

Ditto on the pads. As to the piston, it looks ok if the pitting doesn't contact the seals -- and they will go further into the caliper with new pads. That said, now that it's apart, I'd get a new...
