Actually, there's hope for commercial 1800 Telelever model - if Revival's engineering and coordination with BMW was valid.

Re: Getting better every time I ride it

One seldom recognized attribute of R1150R: the GVWR allows lots of capacity for 2-up touring, or attaching lots of extra crap if so desired. Looks like you've made the bike your own.

Re: Centre stand installation

Did the same center stand install for my 1st Rockster, an Edn80. Install is simple. Attach right side mount plate. Attach center stand at hinge castings via center bolt, spacer cylinders, and external screws. (These were already installed in my bike, but I purchased new parts along with stand.) Atta...

Re: heated handgrip wire routing

OK my Rockster is on the lift, stripped down for project work. OE heated grips: 1. brown 2-pin connectors for each grip side, as you have already learned; 2. heated grip selector switch is integrated into right hand switch module, and all wires for the module attach to bike harness via white connect...

Re: How is your day?

Yes winter is still here - had planned 1st NorCal trip this year for last weekend, but series of storms dumped snow on favorite mountain roads. This week's forecast calls for more cold/rain/snow in NorCal and Oregon.

But locally, it's cool rain for next 2 weeks. Cool + rain = heated grips + Gore-Tex.

Re: How is your day?

Riding to the coast today, sunny inland but expecting typical ocean overcast. Riding 1x per day all week. Rain starts tomorrow, so unplanned pandemic free time to be used for garage Rockster projects.

Sorry I missed the opportunity, Phil.
Was out riding, early spring sun - rare for us. And savoring the freedom before we are under house arrest.

Back way out to http://r1150r.org, where you'll see two menu frames. You want the outer frame and "User Rides".

Re: Good Time to Ride

Riding next weekend, cold wet storm will preclude mountain routes, so I'm riding the Pacific coast for a while. Time to do our part as motorcyclist, enjoy reduced traffic, fresh air, and support small businesses that remain open during and despite the pan-hysteria.

BYOTP.

You can get around that with a VPN. (Which is exactly what I used occasionally to watch BBC iPlayer whilst sojourning in France last year). James you're a genius. Recently subscribed to VPN since I connect to public WiFi while traveling. But I did not consider the location-based power. Just confirm...

Re: Parasitic Drain

This topic prompted a quick look at the SLP wiring schematic... I'm away from bike right now, but doesn't the flasher switch have backlight? Just a subtle reddish glow? The R28 wiring diagram shows no specific means of backlighting, so I assume (if I'm correct about the glow) that the switch has bui...

Re: heated handgrip wire routing

Saw your post at FB group. Enthusiastic but not always enlightened folks there. The OE handlebars have two holes, outboard of clamp, that allow each side's heated grip wire to pass from inside to outside. Remove bar end weight(s) to see the wire path from heated grip into handlebar interior. Note th...

Good tip. My current Rockster has the telltale rubber boot stain, and the bike is still low miles. Will check the vent.

Re: Ohlins

Congratulations. It's the old adage about suspension being the best upgrade, and the R1150** family really responds well to the change. Shocks and good tires. Shocks and good tires and comfortable seat. Oh, and shorter Paralever strut rod.
