    Marc

    The bike was moving around more than what is even normal for him so believe he was on the limit for that setup. The immediate very serious debriefing after the race showed he had something to...

    The opposition and lobbying would be huge as indicated by the helmet law controversy. How did they ever get the seat belt laws thru? Funny thing no one squawks about those laws and you are being...

    I saw that on my twitter update recently and I was thinking "how strange". I was wondering if it was based on the previous report dated in June and nobody at cycle world was informed of the...

    Good Luck getting home. It weighs on me when I suspect something maybe wrong which causes me more mental fatigue.

    I will give a little brake grease a try. I never used it on the bike considering it will collect dirt. The caliper feels free to float when I wiggle it around some but will see if I can get it...

    Thank you. I am going to look into this. Stuck in AZ traffic once where I pulled off and shutdown to let everything cool before it got too hot. Probably being conservative but that is my nature with...

    Wyman, those temps look very good. I am out of town now until September but I will be checking on this further when I get home. If I remember correctly the rear is a floating caliper.

    Interesting, both my R1200GSA and K13GT get pretty hot. Not as hot as when I first put the EBC pads on but still pretty hot to the touch. Have not measured it like the LA police eval did but I do...

    Regarding airflow over rear brakes.... would a chain or belt drive give that much extra cooling from airflow compared to a shaft? That FD gets pretty warm and the heat may conduct thru the metal...

    I am going with Wymans opinion to replace pads early to keep the heat dissipating capacity. I replaced my rear pads with 2.5mm left. Plus it is a chance to clean the caliper pucks etc. My rear EBC...
  17. Fan

    Never knew a fan was an option available as an add on. I assume that would work on my 2011 R12GSA. How much labour is involved? Is it the same fan as installed on the RT-P bikes. If not too onerous...

    I ended up using the Fender mount and very secure and can be mounted at just the right height. I am away from home so no pictures but I think the fender mount is easiest and look best.
