Re: Ohlins rebuild

I didn't know Ohlins offered that service directly. Will look into it next time.... How much do they charge?

No help for original question though...plenty of companies do this stateside. Has to be the case on your end too....

Re: Tire Mileage

Subjective... But some data points for your consideration. I'd give the Angel GT2 a shot. I've been through many sets of tires over the past 2-3 years. At least 2 changes per year. Consistent riding style on consistent roads.... 4-6 hours through my favorite loops most weekend mornings during the ri...

Re: Need new tires....what do you like?

I'll be ordering the Metzler RoadTec 01 at my local dealer tomorrow. Staying with the factory size rear, 170-60. This comes after obsessively searching for and reading every written tire review, video, and discussion board thread I could find. It comes down to people's impressions of quick/smooth h...

Re: oem brake lines?

I have an 04 roadster... 2 spark and braided lines were some of the changes that came in with this model year.

Your description precisely matches the stock braided lines that came with mine.

Re: Sheathing on electric wire harness from throttle grip near fork ripped open

Many references to this problem on the board.... I've used electrical tape and removed/relocated problematic zip ties. And more recently neatened it up further by wrapping it up with Techflex braided cable sleeving (from Amazon).

Want to buy or swap: R1150R high seat

Looking for a high seat... The 820mm one per the parts fiche on realoem.com.

I have a low seat to swap... Prefer this option but willing to buy if the price is right. (My low seat is in excellent condition. Barely used... Sitting in storage for 10+ years)

PM me if interested.

Re: Cracked flange on final drive

So you went for the weld? Any pictures of the housing when it came back? Looks great. What's the torque arm spec? I ended up removing the entire final drive unit and sending it into a shop that specializes in rebuilding them. The part that was cracked was just the housing cover and they actually ha...

Re: Cracked flange on final drive

Just closing the loop on this thread. Got the final drive serviced and installed without much hassle. Cleaned up a lot of wiring and cracked insulation while I had the bike apart. Finally got her out for the first ride of the season... which was pretty much a test run close to home to make sure all ...

Re: Check ALL the bolts!

I used electrical tape around the bundle of wires and then put the braided sleeving over it. (still working on it)

The braided sleeving cleans up the look and is sturdy enough to provide abrasion resistance where it's needed.

Jim- Looks like you cleaned up the wiring with Techflex sleeves?

(Mine are just as bad - And am currently working on the same)

Re: Cracked flange on final drive

Thanks all for the feedback... just a quick update on where I am with this. Looked into what it would take to disassemble the final drive and get the cracked housing fixed... well beyond my skill level and comfort zone. Sourcing a used final drive (31:11) on eBay can be had but of questionable prove...

Re: Cracked flange on final drive

I brought this on myself for sure. Before I put the bike in storage for winter last season I removed all the painted parts and the shocks. The plan was to get a paint job done and have the shocks serviced before spring this year. - Removed all the painted parts. - Got around to the shocks... pulling...

Paint job

I've been contemplating a paint job on my R1150R for years (along with repairing a ding on the tank). I'm finally getting serious about getting it done this fall when the riding season is over. Toying with the idea of a 2 tone paint job: - Tank and rear side panels in blue. - Oil cooler covers in co...

Re: Help Please! Bike cannot hold idle.

Ok. Hit the bike early this AM. Need to get this sorted out asap. Fired the bike up first thing in the garage; only to see a large puddle of reddish/brown fluid start runnning down the engine on the right side and pooling up in copious amounts below the engine. Steam rising everywhere. Killed the en...
