Re: 2002 R1150R Bumble Bee?

I would check with your dealer. At one point I asked my dealer about Rockster stripes and they said they could get them.

Re: Getting better every time I ride it

I'm not positive, but I think the wind was designed to be directed to the oil coolers.

Re: Getting better every time I ride it

I bet the tank was a lot of $$$. Did you buy it new or used?

Re: R1150R tires again!

I have been very happy with any of the Pilot Road series tire from Michelin. Long lasting and good grip even in the rain. I have the Roadsmart II with a little over 1000 miles and they have been good so far although I have not been in the rain with them yet. They were less than the PR but I'll have ...

Re: True or false ?

You may not have to but, to really have the bike run at it's best it is recommended that the TB's be synched after valve adjustment. I think a lot of the bikes that did have a surge issue really did benefit from an accurate adjustment of both and are both part of the "regular" service inte...

Re: Surge shows up

I'm wondering if 1 or both of the TB butterflies are not bad. I would at this point take it to BMW in Chesapeake and let them sort it out.

The Teflon coating does not attract dirt, dust, or debris. Any lube will over time.

Re: Hand guards R1150R

I also have the guards on with the TM. I used a rubber hose washer on the end between the guards and the TM so the guards would stay in place better.

Re: Subframe - What are these tabs and mount point for?

I think this has come up before....at least the curved tab. No one at the time had any real knowledge on what it could have been for and we do know it is useless to open a beer bottle!

Re: Toot...toot.

I also use gear that is more visible. But I still ride like I am invisible.....defensively. I do not want to be lulled that my gear will somehow make my presence to be known. I have wanted to change my horn for years but never have. I am glad you brought this topic back up!

Re: Tire Repair Kit

I have the string type but unless you need to plug to get where you are going, I would replace the tire.

Me too. I was looking at a used Rockster without the stripes at my dealer in 2006 and I didn't like the look at all. I priced the decals back then and thought the price was reasonable......I'm sure those decals will get harder to find as the years go by. :-k

Re: Surge shows up

I guess I should have been more specific when I said coils. The spark plug coils/wires are what I replaced to fix my problem.

That's exactly what mine was doing. I would change the coils. I think I got them from BBY.

Re: Surge shows up

I would check for air leaks too. I had an issue a few years back. At idle, the RPM's would drop for a second and then come back up to normal. If it rained, it would cut out completely at idle. It ended up being one of the coils was bad or going bad. I replaced both and has been fine since. I also ha...
