Re: Odd noise while bike's cold

Sounds like my 1150 as well. I've had wet clutch bikes that make a little clutch noise. My Tiger Explorer and my Multistrada both make noise at idle that goes away when the clutch is pulled, especially before the bike is warmed up. I'm not a professional mechanic but my hunch is it's probably nothin...

Re: hot engine clutch noise

I'm still new to the R1150R myself and the forum but in my experience with hydraulic clutch bikes in general is they don't have any clutch adjustment. Generally if it feels out of whack it needs to be bled.

Remote preload necessary?

Just purchased a 2004 R1150R in the fast Ferro color. In great shape but with the miles on it I'm guessing it's going to need some shocks fairly soon. My question is if anyone here has installed a rear shock without remote preload and if it's possible to reach the adjuster with a c-spanner? I tend t...
