    Got ABS? Don't lose that ring on the rear wheel that sits between the hub and the drive. Not much else to do except grease up the front axle before you install it.

    Cool. I have about 60 miles on my Pilot Roads, so I have not had a chance to really get a feel for them. One reason I bought them was because of their wet weather performance.

    My guess is that you have a slight leak at the junction of maybe the header to the cylinder or at the other end of the header and whatever collector or muffler is at that end. It may not be visible....

    You're referring to the center hole in the rear wheel (surrounded by the four wheel bolts)? I don't think it is all that bad. Certain parts on BMW bikes do get tarnished a bit and a touch of WD 40...
