    New boots have always required an adjustment period for me. If the toe area was higher than normal I've adjusted the lever up a bit. You did not say what year RT you have.

    Since applying the front brake also applies the rear brake do you have to bleed rear caliper while applying front brake? My bike is an 08 - no power brakes.

    It replaces the service notice on the display with the grip heater icon. Great fix (work around)... if it's cold outside. :D

    Dealer or GS-911.

    I just posted a short review in my blog and closed by saying that for me it's worth it just to reset the service light on my bikes.

    Got a link for that part? How much was it? My bike also has K&N air filters and Remus muffler which probably makes a difference. Anybody else with that combination of parts?

    I just purchased this bike last week. It's keeping my RT and Super Hawk company. It's a very slightly used 2008 K1200S. I'm really liking it.

    I changed the front to Pilot 3. I had to replace the rear Z8 at 14,000 miles with a BS BT016 because that is all I could find in remote west Texas.
