Hi all
on: June 03, 2020, 09:13:03 PM
Hi everyone . My name's Dan and I purchased my s1000r a few months ago when my wrists,knees and back decided they had had enough of the R1.
 Am very happy with the s1r plenty of power, great handling , excellent brakes and very comfortable. Also how good is cruise it.
 The exhaust is very quite and I would like to get a bit more bark out of it.
My only concern with the bike is the engine noise. BMW assures me this is normal. I really hope he's right .But the cam chain rattle on start up makes me feel ill every time. Ape manual tensioner looks good. Well I'm looking forward to chatting with you all . I am sure I'll be bothering some of you with questions at some point I'll do my best to make sure the question's aren't to stupid..have a good one..hooroo for now.

Dan welcome to the board.  I installed a mechanical cam chain tensioner and all is quiet now. There are quite a few topics on here about it. :821:
