    My findings on the large VStream: in short, I'm keeping it.
    I've only tried it for 16 miles, at speeds up to 75, with a headwind. Much less flapping on my sleeves, no drumming on the sides of my...

    I just ordered the large V-Stream (Z2403) from A&S. I'm apprehensive about the huge size, particularly the insane 8 extra inches of width, but I didn't want to buy protection on my shoulders and...

    My pleasure; it cost more than a little money (in return shipping alone!) and time, so it would be wasteful not to share the experience.




    Please do ? I'm not near one of their Ride & Buy...

    Apologies for resurrecting a dead thread, but:



    Lots of people seem really happy with the Aeroflow shields, but it didn't work for me, and high-speed stability was one of the reasons.

    I'm...

    I called the dealer, and the non-expert on the other end felt it was worth looking at, particularly under warranty. It'll go in next week, and we'll see what they say!
  7. Yeah, that's why I'm not worried about it. The...

    Yeah, that's why I'm not worried about it. The past-upper-limit feeler gauge fits, and the next one up doesn't. I could (and might) switch to the incrementally larger semisphere shim, but only if I...
  8. The reason I attempted to balance at higher revs...

    The reason I attempted to balance at higher revs is because a balance at lower revs didn't seem to "stick" ? I got worse engine vibration at highway speeds. That seems to be evidence of a problem,...

    Thanks for the continued input, all. Before I start spraying flammable stuff around, I figured I'd inspect hoses. Can someone tell me if the left side intake should look like this? Because the right...

    Thanks for the replies!

    At idle, values are small (<8).

    With a sync to zero with revs anywhere above idle (i.e., not accounting for error under load -- a "normal" sync), there's plenty of free...
  11. 2012 R1200RT: can't get a good throttle body sync (paging JVB!)

    Hey folks,

    I've read every thread under the sun on this, followed JVB's excellent video, and I think I have a pretty good handle on the mechanisms involved.

    However, I can't get a good TBS.

    I was in a similar situation with my RT ? enough protection, but buffeting. The Wunderlich Vario windshield attachment worked for me, smoothing out the airflow on the top. I imagine the Laminar Lip...

    I swapped out my Exide for a PC680 after a year. Lost confidence in the Exide's ability to start the bike after such hard conditions as "parked for two days in a 55? garage", because it failed to,...

    Have had good success with both Rokstraps and a Kriega bag. Get enough tension and the grab rails work fine.

    Had to top off oil frequently; oil slick from seepage on the lower half of the engine; oil drip on exhaust components; heated oil smell.

    On my 2012 RT it was the rear main seal. The dealer replaced that, the balance shaft seal, and the gearbox input shaft seal under warranty in October, and I've been oil-leak-free since then.

    My 2012 RT's battery spent much of its life on a good battery tender. Still dropped enough voltage in a day or two sitting off the tender, at a year old, that it threw an immobilizer error code and...

    I was considering bar risers for my RT.

    I put on grip wraps (Beemer Buddies), and I found that the very slight additional rise at each grip (just a few millimeters), coupled with the increased...

    My 2012 RT used a quart of oil in 2,000 miles or so. I'd always heard that this was normal, so I didn't worry too much about it.

    Then I had to top her off after not riding for a week or so. So it...
