    The braking on a /6 will never be nearly as strong as on a modern bike with multiple pucks. Each caliper squeezes just one side, with one brake pad.

    That pop does sound like the sensor. That's good, they're cheaper than an ICU. However, the sensor, while a standard part, used to be available from Honeywell (via third parties like Newark...

    What can I say? I bought an R1200ST; I actually pre-ordered it!
