    Shocks

    This is my experience with BMW shocks.

    First they are not shocks, they are struts. The stock ones on your bike have one BMW stock number on them. If you check out one of the BMW dealers parts...

    Rt

    I'd test ride the GS and your RT on the same dirt and gravel roads. See how they handle. Your RT carries its weight lower than the GS so it is more controllable than the GS. Standing on the pegs...

    Clc

    Lowering

    You can lower your 1150 very inexpensively by changing out the shocks with an 1150RT front and rear. Then you sell the 1150 GS shocks.

    The 1150 GS kickstand is inherently too short, so no need to...

    bars

    A&SBMW has Z-Technique bars. Touratech makes head protectors. Stanton's are nice, but you'll have to find them used as they are no longer in business. Jon

    crash bars

    Might want to consider a set of Touratech head guards for your RT. You have to goggle R1150GS Touratech to find them. They fit the 1100's 1150's single and dual spark. Jon

    oil

    Certainly you check the oil containers to insure it is all of the same batch. That would be the same difference as using a partial container would it not?

    "Harleying" or using the back brake exclusively to do all the stopping will quickly wear out the pads.

    Another thing that will cause fast wear on rotors is using a brake pad that is too hard for...
