Thanks for the replies!! I connected the fuel pump up to the supply and return hoses and dropped the pump into an open container of gas and she fired up after about four attempts!! It took a while before she would idle and after running for about 10 minutes I noticed that the left pipe and cylinder ...

R850R rebuild thread

As I am a new member I'm not sure if these types of threads are frowned upon but in case its not I will document my refurbishment of a retired ex St. Lucia Police R850R. First off, maybe someone can sort this out for me. The bike was made in December 2004, does that make it a 2004 or a 2005 model?? ...

Re: 2005 r1150rt-p oil cooler relocation

Damn that is the exact same bike!! Where the hell did you find that picture?? Here is the VIN#: WB10428A95ZF08578 The way I interpreted it is that it is a 2005 model R1150RT-P. Maybe you can enlighten me!! As far as I can tell it only has one oil cooler and it is on the right side. I will put up som...

Re: 2005 r1150rt-p oil cooler relocation

Thanks for the replies so far. I just got notice that the bike will be mine. It went up for Tender by the police and I just got the call that they accepted my tender of $2,890.00 US or the equivalent in EC dollars. I wasn't really sure what to offer but as there was already some interest in the bike...

Re: 2005 r1150rt-p oil cooler relocation

Thanks Peels, now that you mention removing the fan, I think that would be the first thing I would do because I certainly don't intend to be sitting or crawling along at idle for any extended period of time regardless of whatever type of bike I might have!!

2005 r1150rt-p oil cooler relocation

I am hoping to purchase a non running police bike that has been collecting dust for at least 5 years. Apparently it has no spark so there is work to be done if I get it. A bit of a long story a...
