  1. Next step??

    Ken F. - I think that I may end up parting it out. A fair assortment of new or lightly used stuff including Wilbers shocks, a rebuilt ABS pump (with more than 4 years left on transferable...

    Hi Jerry,
    As Darryl said, there are lots of Beemers flying around here. I live in Scotts Valley which is just a hop, skip and jump over Highway 9 (or 17) from where you're at.

    Why not premium?

    Just curious - is it the added cost that is the underlying issue? In my area of CA, the cost differential is about $0.20 / gallon which equates to about $1.25 per fill-up for my RT.

    I don't...

    Contacts, then switch to LED bulb

    I'll second the suggestion about the contact "receding" over time. I've found that not only on my BMW motorcycle but also on my two German cars. Stuff happens.

    Whathape is the housing in??

    I'm curious- how crunched is the housing? You may be able to repair it with Plasti-fix instead of having to pop for a new housing.
    Plasti-fix kit is around $36.

    +1 for Ted Porter's BeemerShop in Scotts Valley, CA (95066).
    If you're going to remove the tranny, send it there.

    FWIW, I wouldn't put USED OEM shocks back on my bike. What does that accomplish? You get another year or two of riding on adequate shocks and then you start the process again.

    Looks like you found a really nice deal. I am guessing that when you say "theft recovery" the bike has a "salvage" title. If you are comfortable with the facts of the matter, then you're set to go....

    Why do you ask?

    I have a 2000 RT so I am curious - why do you ask? My 2000 R1100RT is the first BMW I've owned (but not likely to be the last) and I ride it a fair amount (more than 10K/year on the average).
