    Keep in mind that there is a little confusion out there around seat height for the R1150R/Rockster seats. Between the two bikes, there were three seat heights available and all are interchangeable...

    Cherohala on Labor Day Weekend?

    So how bad would the Cherohala be on Labor Day Weekend (Saturday)? Looking for a good route over the mountains from somewhere south of Cherokee, NC towards the Chatanooga area. Looks like it's...

    I lowered my muffler all the way to the ground and left it there. Seriously. Most of the sound muffling is done by the catalytic converter. Without the muffler, the bike is only a little louder,...

    Yes, ECE represents a Euro-market machine. I have no idea what that means for the value. My guess for that era is that it has no effect.

    Yes, I really like the flyscreen (I am 5' 10").

    Mine came with the sport screen and it was horrible. I had a nasty buffeting at anything over than 65-70 mph. I also tried the bike without anything...

    I had mine rebuilt at 78,000 and had the circlip added. Even though several bearings were replaced, it was a LONG way from a catastrophic failure.

    If you're nervous, just change your transmission...

    I have barbacks on my 1988 R100RS (no steering damper). They work great, except they put you up higher in the airflow, but that's the tadeoff for having a more comfortable riding position. There is...

    Everything looks normal to me. There is no cap, the bottom of the rail is nearly flush. When you put the case on, make sure that the top tabs are fully seated in the rail AND make sure that the...

    Check it at the battery with a good voltmeter. Most likely, the BMW meter is bad. At best, they are inaccurate. You didn't leave a turn signal on, did ya? (I know, but always check the supid stuff...

    Nahh, getting the new one on isn't too bad, even though it is an interference fit. I think I put the steering stem assembly in the freezer (can't remember for sure, it was a few years ago), and then...

    Not sure about the whole "moaning" thing.
