That's a definite danger when you start working on a bike that you aquire to revive. That's why I have three "projects" currently that do not show any progress.
You have to clearly define for...
RT vs GTL? Strange comparison. It's like deciding between a Ford Taurus and a Ford Explorer.
What made you decide to buy an RT vs an LT?
I also love my RT. I bought a GT and kept the RT. I know ,...
Same here and...
Nothing to say about what oil to use and how much of it to consume.
Enjoy reading the thread, though:thumb

I wouldn't ask for more
And there's no one I'd rather be..
Why are you leaving the wheel in the fork when changing the oil?
That's like telling the guy who has a constant light loss of air in a tire not to worry.....

Are there still hotels available????
Some of the R1150RTs offer an easier way to make them faster. There is a certain amount of bikes that were produced (check Phil Hawksley's listing of VIN numbers) which have a couple of horsepower...
