    Mike -

    I did this job last winter. A bit time-consuming but otherwise no big deal. Seal puller (used carefully) was helpful. Glad to loan you mine if you don't have one.

    Those caps also help keep water away from the threads on top of the fork tubes. I recently replaced fork seals and all the plastic bits on my forks ('02 r1150r).

    And I've also had the same problem...

    sneak it out

    I have an r1150r (2002) but I suspect they're pretty much the same in this dept.

    After unbolting the plate, you have to sneak the whole mess out - pump, wires, filter. On my bike it is pretty...

    I did the fork seals on my bike (02 R1150R) last year and was surprised to see a similar thing happen. I don't think it was just from being on centerstand; I just noticed a few drops from one fork...

    I wouldn't call it a big deal, but it took me a few hours on my R1150R. Removed handlebars to get at top nuts, removed brakes and wheel, pulled lower fork legs off, drained oil, cleaned, replaced...

    sargent seat

    I'm quite happy with the sargent seat. I was very uncomfortable with the stock seat. At first the new seat didn't seem like it would be all that much different, but it is a lot more comfortable. And...

    Correct fuel hose (inside tank)

    I bought some BMW fuel hose when ordering some car parts a while back - figuring I'll replace the lines inside the tank on my R1150R when I next do fuel filter.

    I know I need submersible fuel...

    I guess the answer depends on when brakes were last bled and condition of pads at that time. Pushing pads back will push fluid into the modulator where it could overflow if it was previously topped...

    wiring

    I read through a description of how to remove the ABS and it is not as simple as just replacing brake lines. There's some rewiring involved, too, and if I remember correctly, the brake switches have...

    batt?

    Still sounds like a low voltage issue, on startup. I'm not sure if low voltage gets stored as a code, but other brake-related issues (switch, wheel sensor) do. But if it only happens on cold startup,...

    I have the same bike. Sounds weird - I thought only the abs bikes (like mine) have the servos, and I've practiced panic stops w/o ever having anything like you described happen. Does your bike have...

    brake switch

    No; right bar end got scratched in tipover, but not brake lever. But I can't think of any good reason for brake light to be flashing on and off (and servos with it) other than a flaky brake switch or...

    Another update for those interested.

    I took bike to the nearest dealer, which pretty well killed an entire day (glad I can do my own wrenching). After two weeks they finally told me they plugged...

    Thanks for the input, guys. An update:
    my bike is a 2002 R1150RA. It has the iABS system (partially linked) and the servos. When working properly, I am quite happy with the brakes. Of course my...

    Mystery Part

    Huge thunderstorm today; my half-cover on my '02 R1150R turned into a sail and I found the bike lying on its side at the end of the day. Kind of a bummer since I've never dropped it, but it only...

    I'm always amazed by the number of people who think that putting a very small extra amount of nitrogen in their tires (i.e. to get from ~80 to ~100%) will result in some detectable difference. I'll...

    When cold, my belt chirps the first time I accelerate after startup. After which it is silent. Has been this way for thousands of miles now. Not worried, at this point.
