Re: Ice Blue Rockster

Rockster looks great in gloss finish!

The original flat black versions weather to an "hurriedly applied primer" look. Even the white Edition 80 paint was excessively EU-friendly and lost its gloss quickly.

Re: Rockster Headlights

Disassemble the front end: Remove Rockster "cap", pull straight up at each of 3 corners. Remove top and bottom headlight shell, just a couple of fasteners. Detach headlight - remove the 2 screws mentioned above... you can leave wires connected. Inspect the 2 flexible inserts that the headl...

Re: New Suspension

Pretty rare to see new stuff for the 1150R Bikes. Most of use don't feel like putting big dollars into the old bikes that really aren't worth a whole lot except to us in the know. We decided these bikes are going to be in our inventory for awhile (lifetime) so we don't mind spending the cash for th...

Re: Will R1100R exhaust bolt onto R1150R?

R1150R exhaust: 1.75"

If R1100 has aftermarket muffler, then single-piece catalyst/muffler was replaced by intermediate pipe and can. If these are 2 distinct sections, then possible application of the can for R1150, but too many variables to know for sure.

Aha! You painted successfully. Glad the new fuel pump has met expectations. Are fork gaiters split or whole (thusly installed over disconnected fork slider)? You remain the "R1150 Brake Master" (sic) in my estimation. Need to start my own topic for Rockster2 happenings. Thanks for update J...

Re: Speed Bleeder/Bottoms Up

Isn't the whole idea, a valve that allows the fluid to exit but does not permit air to enter? Cam brake fluid enter but not air? If speed...

Re: Accessory plug on 1150 Rockstar

Ditto. Heated grips, center stand, and accessory socket were Rockster factory options. Edition 80 version lacked only the center stand... My 80 edition (japanese spec) has a centre stand... Interesting. North American version Edition 80s didn't have a center stand, but were otherwise fully equipped...

Re: Noise from Michelin Road 5

Just throwing this out to see if I'm the only one. I noticed a whining noise that seemed to be coming from front end and decided at 140,000 miles it might be the wheel bearings. I installed a set of premium (not internet specials) SKF bearings and the noise was still there. The sound is almost non-...

Congrats on messy job completion. I've got a filter change in my immediate future - as much as I enjoy pulling the tank off, pulling the innards out is not fun.

Re: Not Starting

One of the fuel injector electrical connectors is not fully seated, or otherwise disconnected. Edit 6/2/19 : Wrong - not if you are starting and riding the bike as described below.

2nd guessing - battery as suggested by James, or wiring fault at forward subframe.

Re: Black engines

I believe the R1150R only ever came with the 385mm Paralever arm (same as the Rockster). I'm hoping that there's a black 365mm Paralever arm somewhere in the inventory! Agreed re: 385mm for all R1150R Roadster and Rockster. And the reason I painted the 365mm GS strut for Rockster1 was as you have a...
