Re: Surge shows up

If you ever suspect a air leak causing a lean surge spray WD-40 around the intake boot seams while running. You will see white smoke out the exhaust if the WD is being burned in the combustion chamber. Old racer trick...

Re: Hand guards R1150R

Alternative with some tip over protection and additional lighting... The 2002 R1150R had Bark Busters on it. I traded the plastic part out for Acerbis guards with LED lights in them to be more visible. Connected them to the useless running light curcuit in the Headlight shell with no relay. Bark Bus...

Re: Toot...toot.

When Driving in multi-lane heavy traffic I keep my left thumb on the horn button and my right index and middle finger on the front brake lever. I make it a point to try to stay out of blind spots. I can't count the number of times I'll see someone glance at their mirror and start to merge on top of ...

"The thought to do so was triggered by a particularly generous act by a member of another forum I frequent."

Fantastic sentiment! I have done similar in the past. Pass it on as they say. =D>

Re: Power commander

Doebeck also makes a controller for the 1150/1200. I have one on my 2002 with a Y pipe and slip on Muffler. Runs perfectly. I’ve had power commanders on two previous Motorcycles and have two Doebecks on current ones. They come preset with the proper inputs. You can call them up and discuss your set-...

Re: Braided stainless brake hoses...Yes

I was fortunate to find a full set of OEM braided lines for a 2004.
Removed the ABS system and installed EBC HH Pads all around.
What a transformation, MUCH more feedback, linear and powerful braking....what a concept ;)

Saddle Bag Ejection

Getting the R1150R ready for some two up riding. Sargent two pc. seat, Alaskan Sheep Skin pads. Testing out the Luggage that came with the R. Coocase Trunk has been fine. Put the Chinese knock off BMW Saddle bags on for a cycle meet at Brewery in Minneapolis. Made one stop then into the City. I arri...

Re: Trying to post image 2 Lube check image

Not to stir the proverbial oil pot............
Wasn't the general consensus if you run the oil level at the top of the glass it will burn more oil?
1/2 to 3/4 up the glass was better?

Re: My new 2002 BMW R1150R

Congrats! Same year and model here. A adjustable windshield is a nice add on for long rides/touring. Consider some bar backs for added comfort. I also removed the much maligned Servo brake system. Mine came with a Y pipe and GTR Muffler. You lose the center stand, an improvement? I put it back on wh...

Nice work!
I am in agreement with preferring the analog Clock, Battery drain and all.
It seems the older I get the more I enjoy retro objects.

Have you considered a solar panel? I have a couple smaller rectangular, about 4” x 12” on my shed to maintain my ATV and Riding lawn mower batteries. They work great and do not need direct sunlight to charge.

It appears the over engineered flasher will not function with the lower resistance. I wouldn't mind if they ...
