    Book rate is often pretty unrelated to how much time it actually takes to do a job. Few service departments will tell you the hours involved simply because their profit and the income of their...

    I used it once this year. It took a while (and two calls) to get a person on the line. She was professional and booked a tow truck immediately. The following morning I was towed 1/2 way across Utah -...

    TB sync is easy! (2010 RT)

    Hi all,

    After paying $$$ for my 12K service at a dealer a few months ago (during a long road trip, so not many options), I've been doing my 24K service myself. Generally I do all of my own work on...

    True, but the contest ends this Sunday, so you have to have it signed by the witnesses by then I assume.

    I love my Medium Aeroflow on my '10 RT. Best windshield I've ever owned. I bought it on the recommendation of a fellow long-distance rider. We both ran them in the '11 Iron Butt Rally.

    I had a...

    Anyone know where I can find the "ending" form to send in? A...

    I bought one of these kits last fall. Nearly 20,000 miles later and it's still working great.

    You should check your headlight aim after installation. You don't want to blind oncoming drivers.

    I've had two seals fail and leak on my 2010 RT (at 20K and 21K). As long as there is still fluid in there you should be fine.

    It's a relatively minor repair (takes under and hour). Ask you dealer...

    Just to muddy the waters, I absolutely LOVE my Aeroflow. Nothing wrong with CalSci and CeeBailey windshields either (I've owned them on other bikes and was 100% satisfied).

    Lots of good options...

    Ouch! That looks bad. Glad to hear they're covering you and that it didn't cause you to crash.

    It's a bummer that BMW can't seem to get these things right. I contemplated selling my RT after my...

    For once (!) I disagree with Steve. Maybe they're cheaper in New Mexico, but I think $17,000 for "buy it now" is pretty fair for your bike. As others have said, most of the "options" on these bikes...

    I have an Aeroflow on my 2010 R1200RT.

    It's FANTASTIC. Easily the best windscreen I've had on any bike I've owned. While the stock screen wasn't bad, it was just a touch too low for me, and...

    I've blown TWO seals on my 2010 RT. Both went at the end of long days in the saddle. I (think) I caught both just in time before something very bad happened. I...

    Good news!

    I recently visited a Triumph/BMW dealership in Utah and it was a nice combo of bikes and gear. Triumph is attracting a lot of young buyers these days (hell, the S1000RR is doing it too...

    This is starting to sound like an oil thread.

    We're lucky that there are many good options for tires out there. Pilot Road 3s are the best I've ridden on, but YMMV. PR2s would be a solid second in...

    Yup. I think you nailed it. No need to dump the bike - just a little bad luck and a sign that I need to tweak things a little with my electrical accessories.

    I have this combo on my 2010 RT. I bought the clamp-ons from Ilium - horizontal mount. I recall that they mention in the description that they fit the Ztechnik engine guards.

    They fit well.
