I don't have a manual, and I trust you. Thanks for the help.

You can find pdf copies of the owners manual online, just Google S1000R owners manual. Its really handy to have the pdf on your phone so that it is with you when youre out and about.

Just to get you started, heres the relevant page from my manual...

I set mine to the spec .5 to 1mm as discussed, but I find the gap widens as the bike warms up!  :086:

So does mine. I have a vague recollection this has been discussed before and that increasing slack as the bike warms up is the normal behaviour.

Yes. Mine frees up when warm.
