    RT extended front fender

    I put the LT rear section of the front fender on my RT and it worked out very well. There is a very good description of how to do this on the BMWSportTouring.com forum.

    R1150RT rear wheel bolts

    I've been thinking about this ever since it was posted and wonder if a stainless steel bolt would rust in the hub? I
    know a good grade of stainless steel does not rust, but
    was not sure what...

    R1150RT rear wheel

    I just installed my wheelcaps this past week. Too soon to
    see how well they keep the water out, but as tight as they fit I don't see how any water can get past them.

    Buy 04 or 05 RT

    KC makes a good point. I recently ordered a luggage rack for my W650 and had to do so from England since they no longer furnish the part in the USA.

    It took me a couple of days to get all the...

    Buy 04 or 05 RT

    I have an '04RT and from what I have seen so far I would
    rather have my '04. I am not a good enough rider to ever need any more power than the '04 has.

    I think the '05 is supposed to be lighter,...

    catalytic convertor

    Yeah, all of the neigborhood cats are using my flowerbeds.
    I just installed a Staintune on my RT so maybe that will cure
    my problem.

    noise

    Mikea,

    I think we probably agree on the sound from a BMW. I just want
    a slightly louder and much deeper exhaust note. I do not like
    loud either and I don't think that loud pipes save lives...

    Mikea,

    I would disagree with you on no boxer sounds good with an aftermarket exhaust. I have heard a couple with the Two Brothers and they have a nice deep sound to them. The only

    I recently installed a Staintune system on my RT because I wanted a deeper, slightly louder exhaust note.

    I immediately took it for a trip to the local gas pumps to fill up.

    extra large lids

    Matthew517,

    I stand corrected, it does fit. However, it does have pressure
    when I try to close the lid. Since the face shield mounting re-
    lease is under pressure will this cause any issues...

    '04 1150 RTL question

    My '04 RTL came with and still has the black screws. I thought
    they were aluminum since a magnet is not attracted to them,
    but a long time RT rider told me they are stainless under the
    black.

    uneven grip heat

    Both grips on my '04RT have about the same amount of heat
    coming through them. If there is a difference I can't feel it.

    uneven grip heat

    I have not had this problem on my RT, but it seems to me that
    this should be a BMW problem if it is cropping up with this many
    owners.

    The Luz,

    My RT goes in for the 600 check monday and I was told that it
    is close to $300. I am having some extra work done on it at
    the same time so it will run me over $300 to get out the door.
