I joined in 2013, the same year that I bought my hold over 2011 R1200R. Just passed 52,500 miles coming back from the MOA National Rally Monday. The bike is running better now than ever. I've had a couple issues which though disappointing were easily fixed. Transmission input seal and counter balan...

Unfortunately, sweatmark is correct. Tank removal will be required. without a doubt, the most annoying thing about this bike is the battery, and it's location. After a lifetime of Honda's, I could not get my head around BMW's design decision to hide the battery like this. I have a jump start battery...

The factory seat can be a real jewel breaker on hard braking, and long hours in the saddle. The Sargent seat is wider, but not all that much taller. The wideness of the seat makes planting the feet farther way from the pavement. Also creates a lot more comfort. The Stock seat is a 150 mile seat, i.e...
Disclaimer: I am not a mechanic! So I don't have those eyes! I took the bike to Roland and The Spare Parts Company in Philly, and it turns out, the front top gear oil filler plug lost it's torque, and was weeping at high RPM.
