    Thanks for all the responses.

    Much appreciated, but to get back to my original question, has anyone experience with the Progressive Suspension units?

    Hi, all.
    My '02 R1150R needs new shocks after only 82,000 km.
    I'm looking at options varying from having the stockers rebuilt to new aftermarket units. Ohlins are off the table, but I might just...

    Hi, Mike,
    Give it your whole mind and buy him the AF-XiED, then he can give it to me when he sells the bike. :)
    Got to get over there and take a look. I've found with my 1150R that careful tuning...

    R1150R auxilliary lights

    Hi, all.
    I've ordered a couple of LED auxiliary lights off Ebay, to add a little conspicuity to the '02 'R. The lights draw about 9w each.
    I would like to have them switched on and off through the...

    I guess the butterfly shaft isn't lubed at all, just depends on the qualities of the two metals, shaft and body, to keep from seizing?

    Complex question

    Many factors influence resale value both in the short and long terms.
    Right now, the economy is soft (euphemism for "in the crapper") for many, so demand is lower. That's a short term influence...

    Thanks, Kantuckid.

    Grease the hand lever pivots on my '02 R1150R?
    It's supposed to be done as part of routine maintenance, but the pivots seem to be buried under the master cylinder castings.

    Thanks.
    I have done a throttle-body synch in pursuit of the elimination of surging, with some success, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it again.
