    Most in-duty RT-Ps I see have stock seats.
    I find the stock seat lacking and will probably have it upgraded to something (Corbin is not far from me).

    They are the best and only outfit I'd rent from out here. I've seen their bikes and they are well maintained, and they run a quality, personable business.

    Make sure your throttle bodies are synced up. If they are not, you'll be amazed at the difference when you have it done.

    I'll answer my own question - yes, it is. The seat itself has no adjustment, the rod that holds the seat in place has at least two positions.
    I raised it up and my legs are more comfortable, though...

    2007 R1200RT-P - is the seat adjustable?

    I'm unclear as to whether my seat should be adjustable. When I had it apart recently, I saw no obvious way to change seat height.
    But I suspect a big part of the reason I find the RT so...

    Anyone think it will work?

    Can't comment on the year but if you are concerned, change the oil and send it out for particle analysis.
  11. 07 R1200RT (and others) front brake bleeding question

    Yes, I've read the tech writeup, and know that you should have a GS911 to activate the ABS servo and bleed that properly. That's not my question.

    I'm puzzled why there's a need to remove the...

    That's what I figured. Yeah, the aux battery only charges when the bike is moving over a certain speed apparently. They did indeed remove the lights and the wiring is cut, but if I decide to use...

    And as I was unpacking the newly delivered battery, I wondered why the heck I would stick so much weight up high, and how I don't have any high power accessories to drive.
    So, I taped up the cables...

    I'm pretty sure printing out pages is allowed under the copyright - I certainly don't plan on stealing it, and in fact just ordered a copy at the dealer this morning.
    I totally understand what...

    Ah yes, similar to the headlight monitoring system used in many Audis back in the day.
    Thanks racer7, will definitely keep that in mind.

    Coming from the VW/Audi world, I'm used to the Bentley online manuals, Reprom seems pretty similar if not better.

    An unnamed helpful person was able to send me a PDF of the relevant section. I'm...

    Unfortunately, no, I don't have a shop manual yet.
    Yeah, I already put out a couple of feelers for help.
    Wondering when I will ever get to ride this thing.
    Searching for reprom now...

    With picture. I need to replace the bolts on the right side valve adjusters (intake side I believe).

    Me either. I don't need to get all of it off, just the right side. Still, marking sounds like a good idea, and I'm getting more and more anxious about doing this.
  20. 2007 R1200RT-P: rocker arm removal, help please

    I screwed up. I misread something about torquing the valve adjusters post-adjustment, and realized I had overtorqued 1-2 of the nut/bolts.
    I was fortunate that my local dealer had a pair of each in...

    I did check the manual - perhaps the year was wrong, but what they described (removing the mirror) was for the turn signal bulb.

    I'll answer my own question.

    The mirror assembly (plastic and glass panel) pop off easily, which is why they sell tethers to hold them in place.
