I moved mine out of the way so I could get at my mountain bike.

I moved it so I could get the mountain bike out for a ride (Trek Superfly Elite). when I came back, I fitted my new BMW Motorrad rear bag. Perfect fit, strongly recommended just don't ask about the price!

Most forums have one of these threads but I didn't see one so I thought I would kick it it off!

Oh no.. lol    :138:   :001:

It's great that you started a new topic (more than most people do.. hint hint..  :038: )  but I have to say that I hate these topics   :004:

Why ? Mainly because they become a "catch all", and anything and everything gets posted in them when certain posts should have their own topic. Not only that but these topics can get incredably long and some really interesting material can lost within it.

Reality is when the topic is 30+ pages long no one will read every page which means that some great content is lost on some people as new readers only check out the last few pages.

We have a whole section for members called "Mods and Appearance" (https://www.s1000r.co.uk/index.php/board,6.0.html) so if you'll added a new part/mod then it should be in it's own topic in that section. That way it can be easily found by other members where it can be very useful.

I don't want to be a big meany but if this topic is to stay then the posts need to be like the ones already posted. Basically short one liners with minimal content (just like the ones already posted  :028: )

So the ground rules are:

Install was super easy. Just unscrewed the factory bar ends, and install the rhino ones. The arrow mirrors were a little tight to fit in the groves in the bar ends, but just a little bit of force, they went right in and work great now. I don't have any pictures at the moment, but i can take a few and post some up for people to see.

They are threaded so hold the reservoir in place. They could be a tad longer, but reservoirs don't weigh a lot and I've never had any problems.

No wish to further upset the Canadians  :038: but had a great ride over into Wales yesterday for a cuppa at the Steel Horse cafe. First ride of the year on dry salt - free roads, could really start pushing the bike a bit.

Absolutely nothing as I'm touring with my wife on the GSA this week, but did I see one of us on a white S1KR yesterday (Saturday) near Usk being followed by another couple of naked bikes? Also did I see one of us in the Cotswolds going through Coln St Aldwyns at about 10am today (Sunday)?

Sounds about the right time, I think you were leading and we were heading in the opposite direction on a green GSA with aluminium luggage on it.  :002:

We'd been up in Snowdonia the night before, came down across the Beacons and were heading for the Cotswolds, picked that road on your recommendation from another post, I can see why it's a favourite of yours  :008: :305:

Installed my color matched tank panels, mudguard, and front fender.  Made some modifications to my tail tidy to clean up the wires and finally got the right charger cord for my phone.  And I also installed the hyper-pro RSC damper and wow what a difference that made.  Next up, exhaust  :001:

Roads are perfect it's not quite dust bowl grapes of wrath quite yet :008: No sand but we do have one road (Glendora Mountain Road) where some a-hole hates motorcycles and is putting fresh oil in the turns trying to kill one of us. Sent a car over the edge but no motorcycles so far.

Damn, that's messed up I hope they catch that guy.  We have almost the same thing going on here except it's the construction trucks carelessly dumping their sand and gravel all over the roads, especially intersections since there are at least two mandatory potholes on each corner. Ride Safe.

Hey GrandMaster Lowrance, lord of all lords (sorry I couldn't resist...lol, you can punch me nxt time you are down here....)  :020: :020: :020:

Now, on a more serious note,

1 - yes, I have dropped the front another ring, three showing to sharpen the steering a bit, not only because PI, more like riding style/preference really, I'm more of a flicker than a leaner. As you know it is a trade off between steering speed vs stability...hence the answer to your nxt question

2 - Yes, I have installed the Hyperpro RSC on my bike, I can run it quite "loose" and be always confident that if the steering damper's shaft velocity increses too much, the "progressive" stage stops the shake  :028:

 :015:

I hope my answers have pleased you, m'lord .....

By "flicker" you mean that you snap the bike by the bars in order to change direction right? Instead of leaning more over the bike and use more body?

Ampj8,

A combination of both really, I tend to use a lot of body movement, definitely not sitting on the top of the bike like a lump of (... Insert here whatever you think is appropriate...lol) you can easily see what I mean on my videos, plus positive counter steering on the bars. The main reason for this is, I like to "finish" the turn as soon as I can, which suits the type of riding I do, b & c back roads, twisties and specially trackdays, this is the opposite to longer lazy arcs through corners, I don't do freeways, highways etc, lucky enough to live in a place where I have the opportunity not to ;)


On the second half of the video the camera is mounted on the back facing forward, you can see "body movement" then ;) that day was a public holiday with gazillions of cop all over the place therefore speeds, and steering speed, were quite subdued, but it gives the idea

Hope I have answered your question brother, otherwise please ask away

Insert here whatever you think is appropriate...lol) you can easily see what I mean on my videos, plus positive counter steering on the bars. The main reason for this is, I like to "finish" the turn as soon as I can, which suits the type of riding I do, b & c back roads, twisties and specially trackdays, this is the opposite to longer lazy arcs through corners, I don't do freeways, highways etc, lucky enough to live in a place where I have the opportunity not to ;)


On the second half of the video the camera is mounted on the back facing forward, you can see "body movement" then ;) that day was a public holiday with gazillions of cop all over the place therefore speeds, and steering speed, were quite subdued, but it gives the idea

Hope I have answered your question brother, otherwise please ask away

 :821:

Now all clear thanks! Music was good as well. Enjoy the rides.

Hey RockDog,

Is it really that hard/fiddly to install ?!?

I'm thinking of buying one but you don't seem too happy....

Installed OEM Euro signals and Rizoma fender eliminator. Looks so much better. Had to do a little re-routing of wires to get everything hidden but I like the cleaned up look.

I finally got off my lazy ass and bought a Bursig stand.   :008:

Interesting note: When I ordered the stand (from Revzilla) I was told I must order the adapter plate with the stand, i.e. I could not just order the stand.  On the plus side, the stand came with the adapter pre-installed and it only took a few minutes to make the final adjustments.

At 200 miles now, tyres are settling down and the brakes are feeling great.

Going to commute on it tomorrow.

Took it back to the dealer to have HP levers fitted. Whilst they were doing the work I took out an RR. Wow. Some bike. Amazing that it feels so different from the R despite being so similar.

They also got rid of the limiter at 9000. They were a bit bemused that the limiter was there. Anyway found a quiet straight road on the way home and the limiter is now where it should be :)

The HP levers are better but I don't understand why the levers on the R are so far from the bars where they were perfect on the RR.

I found it very frustrating, among all the other drama at my first service, that the dealer didn't know about the rev limiter. It's actually listed as the second item on the checklist from BMW.

Clearly some of these dealer don't the information updates handed out to them. Personally I wouldnt go back to a dealer like because who knows what else they will miss in the future.

The rev limiter is not that new of a thing for them not to know about.

The mechanic said they had been on a BMW training session and been told that the R didn't have a limiter but they have noticed bikes delivered with limiters. Sounds odd.

When they connected my bike up I got a software update. But they couldn't tell me what!

They also forgot to reset the auto shifter so only got as far as the first roundabout and had to head back (fortunately I had read a thread on here on that so knew it was a problem).

They also said changing the levers would be 30 mins and it took 3 hours! I would have stayed out much longer on the RR had I known how long it was going to take.

Despite the slow service and issues they are a good bunch and did give me the R for a whole day and also managed to get a decent trade in price for me.

It's in the documentation though so there is no excuse as manufacturers change things in production from time to time. I watched my rev limit getting taken off and it's pretty clear in the software.

We're talking about pretty basic stuff really and they should be keeping up to date with this stuff. I found it quite frustrating to have to argue it out with the place that did my service that I wasn't talking about the rev light. I even asked twice before I rode if the rev limit had been taken off and was told twice that yes it had.

Of course 500 metres down the road....

Sublime Simon. So you also got the V-Stream screen right? I like how it integrates with the front, if you have more pics even better  :158: :034:

That Akra looks is growing on me now initially thought too big but it makes it look SBK like.

Mounted Kriega frame hoops that I use to attach my Kriega US bags! now can take them in our out of sight under the seat.

Also installed low beam Philips White Vision 4500k lamp plus the small W5W on the left side from White Vision as well. This last one is quite bright from certain angle let's see how this passes on the streets  :034: Didn't installed the other right hand side small lamp as it is not that easy to access (you need baby hands to get in there ).

The best place I order gear from is http://www.carpimoto.com/en-AU/ (http://www.carpimoto.com/en-AU/) as they are very quick and cheap.

Had my local bike shop make up a cable and lock system so I can lock the soft bag to the bike when I leave it. Yes it is not going to stop anyone determined to steal it but I generally only leave the bike on a busy street and I am really only aiming to stop the casual thief that could just open the bag or detach it for the bike without some sort of lock.

That's pretty clever, and given how much that damn bag costs, I can see how it might be needed to keep someone from walking away with it.

Though, I don't see that it would keep somebody from opening the bag and sticking their grubby paw in there.

They could unzip the bag but don't think they could get the lid open enough to get anything out as the cable goes through the handle and it pretty tight (the person who made it measured to ensure there was not a lot of play). I did think of getting a small padlock to lock the Zips together but tiresome to have to carry so many locks and keys.

Hi Minerals,
Do not know but guess so.

However still experience some light pull to the right. Went back and mechanic said it is the steering demper .... Its very small so I leave it as is, no issue when riding.

Well I almost put a comfort seat on it. Dealer ordered one in and I thought they were going to let me try it first. However their idea of try was sitting on it on their demo bike in the showroom whereas I thought we had agreed I could go out for a ride for a few hours. Couldnt really make a decision.

Was partly an excuse to get out and about on the bike.
Did about 150 miles just riding around! Oh my god I love the S1000R!

Felt ok in the shop although not sure about the look. But then the normal seat feels fine when you first sit on it. It is just a couple of hours in that it gets uncomfortable. Without riding around on the comfort seat for a longer period I don't know whether it will be a real improvement for me. Still thinking. I've just splashed out for levers (on top of the bike!) and will need tyres in a week or two so another two hundred off on a seat that may or may not help is a bit much at the moment.
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: Stevebgt1 on May 08, 2015, 11:58:50 AM
hmmm.... I think the same. That seat is an awful lot of money. My bike now has a paint job, and it wont look right either. Any dis-comfort with the stock one only kicks in after a long time, and usually you stop for fuel, fag or brew ! Balls to it...I ,ll spend my till on summat else !! :047:

Adjusted the low beam as I had the impression it was quite low. Indeed it was low when compared to the indications of the Service Manual. So I adjusted it  :016:

Also unsuccessfully tried to mount the Evotech radiator covers why? because the torx bolt on the left side of the water & oil radiator mount was not fitting the torn key compared to the other side! hmmm guess a little Italian sold BMW these batches. So in order not to mess the screw more I decided to take it to the dealer when 1st service. Then if they mess it up they shall have replacements. Don't ask me why but it would not fit and the other keys were too loose  :027:

Last I saw the coolant was under low  :033: :012: :169: :187:
So again, demount right side to re-fill it  :021:
This is next task before heading to black forest ride.

Took her home, means Germany. Went with her to the black Forest for the first time. She behaved well despite a little protest from her part on an acceleration she came back with a "no don't treat me like that" and gave me the engine safe mode. Cuddle her and re-started.

She is a great bike with character, we have yet to know each other well, for the moment she is the most capable of both, maybe she is pissed off because her pilot is not up to the level  :009: .

Still we reached 180 Km/h on the limit free zone and the break in period recommending not more than 9000 rpm.

everything happens quick with her, no time for pics just a crap video and a sound recording, just wanted to rideeeeee.  :002: :305:

Soft on way back) better than the speed triple was she said you felt every bump on that obviously not as good as k1300s but that's a different bike altogether,I'm sure it will be a not so favourable report after a longer run but as she says we will just have to stop more often

The Metzeler M7 RR tyres I ordered also turned up. I was tempted to go with the PR4 as they seem to have a following on here but thought for the summer the Metzeler were worth a try. Having them fitted in a couple of weeks. Need to make sure the current DRCs are properly shagged by then!

Picked the bike up after its first service and went for a quick spin. The service cost £132 and consisted of:

o oil change
o oil filter
o seal ring
o (free) visual health check

Also I was surprised to learn that my bike had recall work (clutch replacement -- microswitch-related). Bike's build date is 20th August 2014 which I thought was immune from this work from what I'd read on other threads.

Also noted that the coolant level in the expansion container was now halfway between min and max when I got home, rather than it being non-existant.

Now got 700 miles on the clock and will be doing 150 miles a week purely on commuting to my new job via some nice twisty backroads. Still becoming acquainted with the bike but I'm firmly seduced!

Only microswitch was mentioned. The worksheet doesn't even list this change. However I never managed to talk to a technician as they were super busy. The admin woman couldn't tell me if they'd removed the rev limiter which I also wanted to find out. When I find out more I'll let you know.

Oh, they told me they would not be fitting the plug for dynamic pro saying it was for track use only and not for the road so they only needed the service book from me.

Since I am still under breaking in period (means up to 9000 rpm) and I had some doubts, went at lunch for a small bit of German Autobahn to clarify two doubts:

Was engine limited to 9000 rpm? Answer NO, small bit of 10000 reached :164:
Was I not looking correctly last time and at 9000 rpm I saw 180 Km/h instead of 200 Km/h? Answer I was looking wrong  :082: Yes 200+- Km/h 9000 rpm

Now she rests for some days while her sister goes for a spin.

I think I triggered the anti-wheelie a few times (for the first time). Accelerated hard in second to get past some vehicles and the front seemed to lift off the ground momentarily. Is that how it works? (I was in dynamic mode).

Other than that was practicing my cornering on some Essex country roads around Finchingfield. Some really good roads. Saw what I thought was an orange McLaren 12C behind me and wondered whether he would try to chase me...but almost immediately came up to a car and a van, went past and that was the last I saw of him.

Every time I ride my S1000R the more I love it!!

Wow they look really good! From the pictures they look like decent quality.

Any issues with the cruise control? Would you mind sharing a link to the seller?

Post by: cas on May 26, 2015, 08:07:59 AM
No issues with cruise control. You do have to transfer the finger that operates the two micro switches. Also I had to use the brass pivot bush from the original lever. I had to use a wee bit of heat on the original lever to get the bush out, was easy enough. The brake lever has a brass barrel with a hole in it which the rod from the master cylinder fits into, make sure this is in the correct position to engage with the rod.
Make sure you check all the screws and nuts for correct tightness holding the levers to the bike and also the small allen bolts on the actual levers too, just to be on the safe side.
All in all an easy mod to do.

Pretty sure miles pointed this out several months ago.  Fortunately the center line of the of the pipes are the same so you can mill down the OD of each pipe and make it work.

Where did you get the pipe?

I got it from a local guy who removed it from his new HP4.
Miles pointed out the S1000RR but nobody was really sure about the HP4.

I took a chance and lost but i'll definitely pay a visit to ma local machine shop and get these reduced in size.

Post by: Lowrance on May 28, 2015, 04:29:52 PM
You are correct...but, the S1000RR and HP4 motors were in the exact same state of tune. The R was the first to get the smaller head ports (and now the 2015 RR) to bump midrange power.

I'm sure your efforts will be worth while. It's a well built, good looking, light and quiet pipe.  When I bought my R I was considering the HP4 pipe as well until Miles posted up his findings with the RR.

Good luck and let us know how the machining goes....cost, etc.

The R has been neglected. I'm ashamed to say that I haven't ridden it since March, as I have back issues, so have been riding the GSA everywhere instead. However, I'm planning on dusting it off and getting out on it next weekend, all weekend. :046:

It's been an expensive garage ornament, these past few months, so I'm looking forward to actually riding it! :152:

I'm rapidly approaching 1000 miles and becoming ever more seduced (despite the airfix quality of the switch gear). Front end can be ever so slightly flighty but nothing overly concerning. Bike can be a bit bouncy, will tweak the preload again, but right now I'm rather heavier than I normally am which calorie counting is taking care of! When I reach my target weight (13 stone) and reset the preload, the bounciness should go.

The one thing that stood out to me was the reading for "DDC State".  It read 0, but I don't know what it would show on the RR.  I need to borrow somebody's '15 RR and hook it up to see what I'd get.

The led are definitely brighter than the original bulbs but at night it doesn't change anything because the low and high beam are much more powerful.

Still it looks better and the car see you a little more during daytime.

LOWRANCE !!!!!

Go and wash your mouth with soap !!!!! Stunts ?!?!?!?! OMG, they are illegal, dangerous and childish !!!  :192: :192: :192:

 :164: :164:

Lets call it "experimenting"...

I have been experimenting a lot with the bike in DPro with DTC off....in one word ??!?!? A-W-E-S-O-M-E

Just came back from America with few lill things for Ygritte (my bike) including few sets of sprockets

Front: 16 and 17 (520 and 525)
Back: 44, 45, 46, 47 (520 and 525) 

So I will run the shortest I have (16 & 47) for awhile and correct accordly, just for shits and giggles

It only takes 10 minutes to change sprockets anyways.

As you know, I don't commute on the bike and I avoid freeways like the plague, I dont think I have been on a freeway ever in 8700Kms

All in name of the fun !!!!

Fitted luimoto seat covers.

Installed zumo 590 GPS ( because of long wires on the gps I ended up putting it some turns around the left damper/fork. Connected to can bus plug with nippy Norman plug.

Put on wunderlich touring screen ( to take off some wind when having to do 800km of freeway driving, don't like the look of it)

Replaced rear tire with pilot power 2ct ( Rosso had done its job and this came highly recommended)

Almost ready for my trip to Austria and Italia

Nothing wrong with experimenting....

The findings:

17-45 = 100km/h @ 4500ish rpm topping out at around 270ish

16-47 = 100km/h @ 5100ish rpm topping out at around 240ish

Extra fun "experimenting" ?!? Priceless....

Fitter Metzeler Sportec M7 RR tyres this week. Only done 40 miles so far. Still scrubbing them in. Very impressive so far (but not fair comparison to existing DRCs as they were quite well worn when I bought the bike and new tyres going to feel better before the profile is changed).

Since Metzeler has been a subsidiary of Pirelli for the past 20 years, I wonder how much difference is there really in between the two, technology-wise that is? 
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: Minerals on June 03, 2015, 02:39:50 PM
Probably fairly similar Bill. However, the I think DRC has been out since 2010 and looks like the Metz RR came out in 2013, so you'd hope there is some newer and better technology in the Metz. Apparently, they are the only tyre manufacturer to make tyres solely for bikes, so I wonder if that makes much of a difference.

Got tired of the backpack and picked up saddlebags for commuting and hopefully a trip to the mountains end of summer.  Had to put the passenger pegs back on to mount the Motech bags.  Removed the tail tidy and put the stock rear fender back on since my evening commute has been very wet lately.  I have another bike that is probably a better choice in the wet, but not as much fun.  Installed the Motech mirror extenders as well.  Makes it look a bit goofy, but I can finally see what's going on behind me if needed.  A bit of a "sleeper" now.  May be a good thing.

Hi Simon, very much looking forward for these and hear your comments about the seating position etc. I plan to do similar and add Vibranators on the ends to reduce the vibrations on higher revs.

DOUBLE Great!
I know is part of the engine characteristics but to remain on healthy revs which is high than 4k all the way up normally also to enjoy the last part of the rev range, the vibrations can in time come over your arms at the end on long rides one gets tired.
On a track-day is no issue really but on longer trips can be.

That is an option, however I needed new bar-ends for these bars anyway as the ID of the bar and the fitting for bar-ends are completely different to stock. I kinda like the look without bar-ends, so may try them without, but I also like the protection offered by the bar-end.

Rode to Barafundle Bay Sunday with my two nephews ( S1000R and S1000RR) and one of their mates, round trip of 395 miles. Had a great day's riding on some good roads. Barafundle Bay is regarded as the best beach in the UK, National Trust owned, did not have to pay to park our bikes cos the ticket collector liked bikes.

Actually yesterday and not today, did a trackday at Assen, the cathedral of Motorsport.
Had a splendid day with beautiful weather and yes this bike can do trackdays.
But on a sidenote, had some kind of a moment when later in the day wind picked up.
Everything got a bit unbalanced at high speed(and strong wind straight in my face) just before entering a turn(Ramshoek) when coming off throttle and changing camber on track.
Good that I got a firm grip with my knees otherwise...........
Oh boy what fun I had all day!

Picked out the vinyl color I am going to use to wrap it. One of my good friends does wraps and he is going to do the same color as me on his vette so we can share the same roll of material.

Settled on 3M Gloss Green Envy-
(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=ssl:pbs.twimg.com/media/B8RN64xIIAAolEe.jpg)

My choices were green envy or Avery matte metallic purple, which I have been wanting forever but always pick something else-

(https://images.weserv.nl/?url=wrapfolio.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/20140724142453image-3.jpg)


I think eventually I may go to purple but for now it shall be green envy because of the material savings.

I'm in the process of getting the RR black tank panels to replace the weird bronze ones as well. Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks I will return with the finished product.

It's a long, and disappointing, story.  The gist is that the Rizoma bar ends do not accommodate CRG Arrow mirrors...  Waiting back from a manufacturer to see if they can sell me turned-down bar ends to accommodate the mirrors, before I reach out to local machine shops to turn down the stockers.  It's doesn't feel right without rear view mirrors...

Bought an Abba paddock stand. Used it for the first time today and it worked as well as I had hoped. No problems getting the bike up or down (I know I should be able to use a traditional paddock stand by myself but a bit nervous about dropping it). Will have to see how it stands up to repeated use.

Made lubricating the chain a lot easier and less messy.

I went the other way. Had an Abba, but sold it and bought a paddock stand, as I find the paddock stand easier to use, and much more stable.

I've had the abba superbike stand for years now after my local mechanics recommended them and been rock solid, stood up to regular abuse and so simple to use. Just get the correct fitting kit for each bike.
Great for working on bike as suspension not loaded when on stand. I use a trolley jack under headers to lift front at same time when required as not a fan of their front lift option.

Nice, my panels came in today and I think my vinyl gets here today as well. I switched at the last minute to metallic gloss yellow instead of green as I felt like yellow will go with the black accents a bit better.

Yeah, I feel your pain. I messed up on the headlight piece as well. I asked tankslapper if I can buy a replacement piece, but still haven't heard back from them, which is weird because their customer service was quite responsive prior to this.

Steve, with the clutch lever pulled in, look from the front of the bike at the microswitch just underneath the lever, You should see 2 thin metal tabs, 1 coming towards you the other going away from you. They should both be straight, if one is bent (this is well documented malady on this site) just carefully straighten the bent on with a pair of small needle nose pliers. Also, you did move the little plastic thingy(not sure what else to call it) from the OEM lever to the HP lever (this actuates the microswitch).

Put 500 Kms went north Black Forest and back. Autobahn on the way there all I can say is that the V-Stream wind shield makes it very comfy at 150 Km/h and above too when you duck in.
Enjoyed some Dynamic mode wheelies reached 246 Km/h (too much traffic).

Hi J Biker,

Mines going in for its first service on friday - Ive fitted the evotech rad guards and ordered the MRA double bubble screen. What guards and screen are you getting. I did the Kielder, newcastleton, brampton, alston, weardale then back to chester le st route last night. Bikes a cracker I think, though i still like the rawness of my brothers v4 Tuono as well. :002:

Had a test ride on v4 1000 Tuono. Thought it wasn't as quick as the S1000 and the suspension also seemed to hard for road use. Sounded good but then BM sounds great as well (how can the Japs not get exhausts as sweet sounding?)
heated grips, cruise control and some sort of dealership backup make the choice a no brainer though. Now the 1100 is out the BMW also seems a bit of a bargain on price as well.
Might look in to Ventureshield for the bodywork.....and I wasn't going to spend money on this one!

Hey brother,

Looking great there. It looks like you did a 520 conversion right ? What gearing are you using ? Rear sprocket looks a big bigger than OEM...

Picked it up on the 26th of June and didn't get a chance to ride it until last weekend, what a great bike!  Coming from an R1200S the engine, clutch etc. took some getting used to, but I've had I4's before and it's nice to have this power.

I've added rim tape and removed the fork reflectors, passenger pegs and swingarm stickers etc.  My tail tidy just arrived today and a solo seat cowl, new brake reservoir and clutch/brake levers on the way.

Good eyes!  Yes, the rim tape kit came with a square patch of vinyl in the matching colour so I traced out the blue sections of the BMW logo and covered with red vinyl.  Peels off in seconds if I get tired of it, I think it works well though! 

One of the forum members on the R1200S site I used to frequent had done something similar to his bike (it was the red/silver candy stripe version of that bike).

They certainly cut the vibes down that much you cant really feel them, and they do make the grips slightly fatter and they are comfortable. Overall they add about 4 to 5mm to the diameter of the grip.

Post by: Cofra on July 08, 2015, 11:42:56 AM
Usually grips like these isolate a bit so that the heat takes longer to come through, startup time, considering it has to pass through more material before it reaches the hand. But the heated grips will still work. Might be some loss if more heat enters the bar itself, when more isolated from the grip surface, but I wouldn't worry to much about it.

Post by: SimonUK on July 08, 2015, 12:41:37 PM
I have had Grip Puppies on my K13S and R12GS. Heat does take a little longer to get through the closed cell foam, and just by feel they are not a hot when compared to the stock grips. The main reason I put them on was to increase the diameter of the grip (I find the OEM grips woefully small), I rode with them for many years but always felt that they gave too much of an increase. I have subsequently removed the Grip Puppies and installed replacement Gel grips, just enough increase in girth for me, have that slightly softer feel (gel) and the heat coming through is pretty much as per the OEM grips.

I haven't tried the heater yet but I would assume it will not be as good as the original grip.
But I don't ride in winter so I don't use em.

I have a set of grip puppies fitted. They definitely reduce the vibrations, and as said above they are fatter, therefore the heat takes a little longer to come through. The heat is slightly reduced imo, but lets face it they weren't the hottest of grips to begin with either! :164:

I just replaced my RR with the R and I really like it.  I put a set of OZ Piega forged wheels on and that really made the bike feel lighter.  The difference I felt by switching the wheels reminds me of what it's like to go from a bigger bike directly to a sport bike; a lighter and more maneuverable feel.  I have an Akrapovic full system on the way so I'm anxious to put that on next weekend.  I was hoping to leave the exhaust stock, but the stock exhaust has a tone that, for me, is a little annoying when maintaining a lower speed (leaving my house/coming home).  In the near future, I'd like to put bar end mirrors and the V-stream sport windscreen.

Within 2000km already several cooling fins were bended. Took some time to straighten them ... But with good result.

Awsome !! Saw already many pictures and photo's however if they are on your own bike its  :062:

Just for the record, the side fairings were stuck on pretty well. When I put them back I lubbed them with some liquid soap.

My $8.00 mod :001: Painted my side panels black and added some texture with Rustoleum truck bed coating spray. http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/auto/coatings/truck-bed-coating-spray (http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/auto/coatings/truck-bed-coating-spray) Easy to put on just have to avoid runs I did 3 coats.

It is ruff but I took a piece of plastic that I did the test spray on and rubbed a old leather jacket and it had no effect. I then hit the finish with 1000 grit sand paper lightly and with out changing the look of the finish took off the tops of the bumps and made it smooth you could do this to the whole thing or just the contact area. So I don't think it will be a problem.

The product linked to seems to be up to the task but they sell a professional version that costs a bit more and peels like plastic-dip so save your money and get the cheep stuff.  :002:

A bit of  "Liposuction/ Plastic surgery"

She lost 6 KG !!!!  :007:

OEM heads and pipes weight 9.7 KG, the AKROs with mid pipe weight only 3.5KG...

Let alone the sound....It simply cannot be captured on camera or phone etc....

PCV + Dyno tomorrow, the AFR is horrendous as it is...

:)

AussieS1KR thank you very much for your infinite patience with all my questions  :821: :821:

She will be there before you can tell, just 13 days.... easy

I used the "waiting time" to buy bits and pieces over the net and when she got here, I locked myself on the shed and spent the night with a bottle of JWBL (Blue Label) installing this and that, stripping her down, learning about her guts <---- I love how wrong this sounds.....  :745:

Yeah brother, she sounds pretty alright through the cogs with the QS, I wont push till after she gets her PCV and mapped, there are other posts around the forum with pretty much same set up and videos etc.....

The sound is bloody obscenely A-W-E-S-O-M-E !!!! You really cannot appreciate till you are either onboard or nxt to it !!!

I've been to the shed few times today, in between other things I'm doing atm, just to start her and enjoy the symphony .... :169:

Must admit I do a bit of shed time myself. Have ordered rad guards and side stand foot (would hate for it to fall over). Want the cat cover but the postage costs suck. Can't wait to ditch the clutch lever and the mirrors. Enjoying checking out people's mods. Really helps potential purchases.

As much as I'd like to, I cannot go that route until someone comes up with a way to bring the volume level down to socially acceptable levels.

Finish my "Lipo/plastic" project

Installed a PCV and dynoed her

Now, the most interesting thing the tuner ( Phil Taiton Racing http://www.ptr.com.au/ (http://www.ptr.com.au/) ) discovered has nothing to do with max output etc...

It was quite interesting to see in real time how the fly-by-wire works on our bike, we just saw that when you are on full throttle on the wrist, you are actually NOT having full throttle on the throttle bodies 100% of the time, specially after 9000RPM, regardless of which mode you are running the bike at (road, Dynamic, DynamicPro) we tried all three of them!!!

The ECU backs the TB ( throttle bodies ) down after 9000 RPM to around 85% in Dynamic and 90-95% in DP even with your wrist pinned down at 100%
changing this can only be achieved having access to the ECU programming/flashing....

It was bloody shocking to see it happening, as soon as the second bank of injectors kicked in, the TB was retarded...Why ?!?! ring BMW and ask them, I'm just telling what I saw...Phil said the same happens also with the RR to a different extend. With full control of the ECU more power can definitely be achieved, apparently...

Also, the AFR was horrendously off. On the first run he did we got lean up to 17ish:1 till 3500 RPM, the bike was really hesitant and crappy, easy now to see why, by the 5th run you can see on the graph ( RED line ) it was a bit better but still shitty, now it runs butter smooth everywhere. I also had the stalling thing when first starting the bike on very very cold mornings (-4C) It used to take few attempts till idle could be achieved. Now starts on first go and stays there purring happily.

Lawrance, yeah brother... she is loud !!!! HA HA

Definitely worth retuning with the PCV. Better than having the extreme lean and rich parts of the rev range as per stock mapping.

Used Dr. Beasly's wash and paint protectant on my matte finish, installed Pazzo levers (nice to be able to adjust clutch and they look good!), installed Yoshimura R55-LE slip-on (Looks much better than OEM and has a nice deep tone compared to stock muffler, I really like it! and it' not much louder at all), took her for nice ride to check out all the newly installed goodies and then after she cooled down I covered her up with a new Geeza Gear bike cover (it's a bit pricey but man does it fit well and covers up just the upper half of the bike and fits like a glove. Will post picture next time).
All I'm waiting for now is my Sargent seat so I can take her the distance.  :046:

I do like the Fluela pass further east as well. Been over that one 3 times now.

Rode it a bit and showed it off to all my buddies at the tuning shop..was a new raven r1 and a new cbr1000rr sp in hrc colors..lots of nice bikes there today.

Took off reflectors, chain guard, max lean indicators. Put on blue valve stem caps, tech spec pads and attempted to smoke the turn signals..didn't work though...it's like I was spraying water, not paint..they must be coated in something..cleaned them off and reinstalled...and put on spools so I can use the stands.

And took off passenger pegs and blocked the holes off

And threw on an all black resivoir sock..was looking for a BMW or brembo one..but had limited choices at cycles queer..luckily they had a straight black one with no logos.

Took a chance on short rear turn signals made for the RR to put on the front. Ebay from China $16.50 for the pair. They worked out fine, to be safe and to match the rears I used the reflector and lens from the ones I took off and the body and stalk from the knock offs you can't tell them from the stock lights. No more floppy lights  :152:

Oh yeah they only took 6 days to get here :305:

Got a puncture in the era, all felt a bit wobbly when I heckled I could see the wall bulging as I weighted the bike up and down. Limped it to a garage 8psi so topped it up, got me home. Ass I've mentioned before Im off to the Pyrenees first week of September so I was contemplating a change anyway, looking at some PR4s now. That what I'll have done with my S1000R tomorrow.

I had already been considering my options for going away depending on wear rate here and increased wear rate playing everyday. I have decided to go with the PR4s as i ride all year round and think they will give me the best wet/dry wear/fun I don't do track and feel the 7rr is slightly bent in that direction. I'm not tied to a marque had sportmax on my ZZR as I felt the PR3s of the time flexed too much. My friend has PR3s on his speed R and they were great holding the weigh/power much better so expecting improvement from the 4 which has slightly less grooving. That said I may to have whichever is in stock when I get there as I need the bike on Tuesday, modern tyres are all so very good its not like a decade ago when they really were like on off switches for grip.

Finally got around to mounting a bunch of OEM parts that I received from KFM-Motorrader:

HP Levers
LED indicators
Engine guards
Axle guards

and a set of Giles TCA chain adjusters Fredaroony sold me months ago!   :008:

Gave the baby a wash, cleaned and adjusted the chain,and gave that nasty cat a good polish with some S100 12300P Polishing Soap.  That stuff is fantastic!

I believe the reason they stopped making the bag was because they were getting too many returns (this is just a guess). BMW was sending out bikes( R and RR) in 2014 with different straps under the passenger seat. Some came with only the front 2 straps and others with only 2 rear straps. The bag requires all 4  straps (the 2013 RR  came this way) in order to neatly attach the bag. Mine also only came with two  straps in the seat but I was able buy 1 similar strap for 2 dollars that fit perfectly underneath  the seat and through the little built in hooks and up on both sides with the same Velcro closings that came on the rear set of straps. Fit perfectly. I forget what the strap was intended for but I believe it was designed to secure a package to the rear seat. I love it and that little bag is usually enough for me to avoid putting on my sw-motech saddlebags unless I am taking a trip. My parts guy told me he was getting returns on them because people did not know how to attach them.

Took care of some electricals tonight.
Installed:

Hardest part was figuring out how to mount the HID ballasts. I used high voltage extenders so I could mount the ballasts in the side fairings. The side fairings however, aren't symmetrical so I had to figure out different spots for each. Also there weren't any perfectly flat areas to mount them so I ended up using 3M Automotive mounting tape on the sides and press fitting them to raised edges and then using gorilla tape to tape down some of the other edges. They feel pretty secure right now.

Fitted a white front guard off an RR, then went for a blast to the seaside  :018:

On the way I found out how well the electrical wizardry modulates the rear wheel lift under heavy braking, it's just to fun  :152:

Re-checked the sag after 6000 miles and found I had to wind in another 6 turns to bring it back to 20mm.
Rode it and had much fun and a smoother ride, also fitted a louder horn from a 650 Deuville as its louder than the stocker!

1st service done, dynamic pro plug installed... :046:

FYI - never during the ownership of my previous bikes (10+) have I experienced a service cost that came in below budget.  I was told $340 CAD for the 1st service, which didn't sound unreasonable after some of the discussions I've read on this board, so I was just prepared to suck up the cost of the first service and then do the following oil changes at home.  Instead of $340 I was charged $250 incl. tax!  Perhaps $250 CAD ($187 USD ~ 122GBP) is reasonable and the estimate was just too high...either way I'm fine with that price for a full service!

Maybe it's a new tactic; tell you one price then come in slightly lower so you feel good?  So you won't think too much about paying $187US for a glorified oil change.     :008:

Having first service next week then fitting - full akra with shorty pipe and baffle, ilmberger carbon fully belly pan, carbon tail piece, carbon under seat parts, carbon tank top, HP4 rear sets, HP4 levers and HP4 rear foot pegs.

After buying the Evotech blanking plates for footpeg removal on my wifes Yamaha MT-07 I thought it's about time I removed the ones on the S1000R....

5 minutes later, they went back on!

IMO the bike looks worse without them, It did it no justice what so ever! Yet the MT-07 looks so much better. So if you were thinking to do the same, don't bother.

I really should have been posting on this thread for a few weeks. I have in my garage a Sargent seat, black textured side panels (for Black Storm RR), electrical connector for plugging in my radar detector, Ram Ball mount to mount the radar detector, and the VStream windshield.   I think that's all.  Unfortunately I don't have the bike yet.  They told me about ten days ago it's on the water.

Made it all dirty going through first post-snowy roads in Grimsel, Furka and Susten passes. But loved it. I like the Gletsch to Furka road and the whole Susten road these are truly lovely for bike riding. Now a wash got a bit salty and muddy, saw other two R's one traveling with saddles on the way back from Susten to Wassen....

amp you are blessed with some of the best biking roads in Europe. I was in Switzerland on the 12th  September 2014 on my GS at that time and had a load of Swiss passes to do but sadly the weather was not good at that time and I was informed not to do them as rain and low cloud would spoil it so I didn't do them. One day I will return and do them.
I'll be back as Arnie said  :745:

Read this entire thread from the beginning  :087:
Found many things I now want to buy
Decided to put the pro plug in even thought I have kept it in road mode 99% of the time
Decided that after 3 months and 3k miles it was time for its first wash   :745:
Coolant was low so I topped it off
While filling up the coolant I noticed that the wash down didn't do a thing for all the road grime on the underside and I am going to have to give it a serious cleaning next time I have a day off.

So here is my update.  I picked up the S1000r after work Friday and put on the Sargent seat and VStream wind screen right away.  Yesterday I rode the bike 385 miles.  This morning I went out early and put 180 miles in the 1600. 

When I got home I pulled the side fairing off to wire and mount my radar detector, then put on the black side panels from the RR.

Rode the Dragon (up) and the Cherohala Skyway in a bit of rain on Friday.
Sat on the porch and watched the rain the whole of Saturday,  :821: :821: :821: was also partaken.
Sunday's ride home included plenty of twisty roads.

Did you splice the wiring for the radar, or ???

I had bought a connector that plugs into,the factory OA connector under the left side panel.  Simple and straight forward. I used bullet connectors to plug the radar detector hard wires to the pigtails off the OA connector.

Got to love a garage with air conditioning!

It's a three car garage and I have two of these units in there.  It makes living in Houston bearable for cleaning and working on the bikes.

I have only ridden the Dragon before on my K1300S, fun but extremely hard work. The S1000R makes it so much easier. 2nd gear the whole way for me, could probably have dropped her down to 1st on a few corners, but she was pulling like a steam train in 2nd gear.

After much struggle i finally have my low beam HID installed.

The kit i got was not working properly and was replaced bit after bit by the shop but i finally got the whole thing installed.
I also had the MORIMOTO XB LED BULBS they sell, they both died within a month and got replaced under warranty by theretrofitsource.

I hope everything holds up now.  :020:

Replaced the long front turn signals for short ones.

I actually got cheap Chinese look a like, took out the stalk of the stock signals and replaced it by the Chinese ones.
The housing, the light and all is still the stock one.
It's a subtle cosmetic change but now the signals are almost wobble free

I'm hearing you on the colour; it doesn't look good on any of the colours in my opinion. I lived with mine for a bit & then plumped for a Luimoto cover which is way better looking although not cheap.

Got an Optimate 8 cable ( SAE to mini lighter ) connected it to the SAE to battery cable my dealer installed ( they do it on all their bikes ) all under the passenger seat. Then plugged the BMW Heatup vest. Works well for these chilly days!

Still wondering if I install the connector somewhere or leave all under the seat.

Hepco & Becker C-Bow system + Street Soft Bags, available from site sponsor Moto Machines:

http://www.motomachines.com/Street-Soft-Bag-Set--21-to-23-liter-bags_p_224.html (http://www.motomachines.com/Street-Soft-Bag-Set--21-to-23-liter-bags_p_224.html)

These bags are great.  I debated between these and the SW-Motech ones.  I like that the mounting hardware on the SW-Motech ones comes off the bike easily when you aren't using the bags.  But the SW-Motech bags rest on the tailsection and I was concerned about paint damage.  The Hepco & Becker bags don't touch the tailsection.

When I first test rode an S1000R, I also tested a K1300R the same day. While it was a very nice bike, the size and weight difference was very noticeable. The K1300R would actually probably be better suited to the type of riding I'm stuck with where I am, but it just didn't feel as fun as the S1000R.

Funnily enough, the K1300R was sorta like the Triumph Speed Triple in a way. Both were kinda dream bikes for me until I rode them and ended up buying their little brothers (cousins?). I might still see if I can snag one for a loan bike when mines in for its first service.

Hey Archie

Mate i really don't know which one i would pick as I've only had the S1000R for only a week.
saying that a mate of mine owns a K1300S and wishes he had the R instead.
if i had to pick one right now i probably go with the K as i've had it for 2 years and done a few long trips on her and
it's bloody fantastic.
even to dub someone it does it with out a problem and very comfy.
but it's now time to play with the S and really find out how good it is..
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: SimonUK on November 23, 2015, 02:37:39 PM
I think the choice entirely depends on the riding you do primarily. I have K12S/K13S for 6 years and completed 60,000 miles on them. I just love the turbine power and comfort of them, and pretty much said this is the keeper. I will say that most of my riding now is up in the mountains of western North Carolina, good twisty technical roads, tight stuff and longer sweepers, a bit of everything, I also do a couple of long weekend trips and a week long outing each year. I can hustle and muscle the big K through the tight stuff pretty well, but it does require a lot of effort and is pretty tiring for a 200 mile day in the twisties.

I wasn't in the market for the S1000R when it came along, but the opportunity was there at a good price. For my weekend riding the SR is just such a fun bike to ride, not as tiring as the KS in the tight stuff, but just a real hoot and the poor KS is getting to know the inside of the garage more and more. Not that I don't like riding he KS anymore, just my weapon of choice (fun factor, exhilaration, etc) is the S1000R. Don't get me wrong, the KS is much more comfortable, devours long distances, has much more compliant suspension, and that motor.....

I never thought I would say this, but bottom line at the end of the day if I had to get rid of one of the bikes I think it would be the K1300S. As I said, the S1000R is a hoot to ride and is so capable. I can strap the 55l BMW soft bag to the back and go off for a week. I'll suffer a little on a 300+ mile day getting to a destination, but she rocks in the mountains and back roads.

Luckily for now I don't have to make that decision, but if the KS doesn't leave the garage she may just have to go.

Again, this choice depends on what your riding priorities are. If I was just doing longer trips, then the K1300S would be my choice to keep.

Thanks for the input guys, definitely reflects my experience with the 1300 as well. I think if BMW refreshed it and put all the latest gadgets as seen on the R1200 line (cruise control, auto-blipper, DTC etc) I'd be on it like a fat kid on cake.

ampj8,

You must stop posting pictures of these phenomenal Swiss Alps passes!  I'm having withdrawal remembering my 2 week trip through Austria, Switzerland, France, and Italy last June/July with Edelweiss (I was on a brand new R1200RS--it was fine but I would've loved to have been on my S1000R).  It was my 4th Alps tour (3 prior with Bosenberg in '01, '03', and '08) and I just love the challenge of bagging those passes.  Have you read John Hermann's book "Motorcycle Journeys Through the Alps"?  It's been my bible for making sure that I hit all of the great Alps passes and so far I've done over 150, many of them several times, including all of the top 20 in elevation (completed this time by finally riding Grossglockner Hoch in Austria), my absolute favorites in central Switzerland (the holy grail of passes--Grimsel, Susten, Furka, Nufenen, St. Goddhard, and Operalp), and many in the Dolomites and southern France (La Bonette in particular since it's the highest in the Alps).

You're one lucky dude to have those in your backyard--I'm so jealous.  Didn't you recently post a video of you riding up the north side of Stelvio dodging all of the car and bicycle traffic?  I had a similar experience when I was just there since it was the month before the Tour de France and bicycles were all over the major passes.  That road is challenging enough without the bicycles with all of the tight blind hairpins due to the tall walls that block your view of oncoming traffic when approaching and poor road surface in spots (the south side is definitely much friendlier).  Gotta have a sausage sandwich from Bruno at the top!

Ride safe.

Hi thanks for the compliments yes I know the luck also because of the Black Forest. The one thing we miss in this country are race tracks! As racing remains banned. Close by ones in France not so close.

It wasn't me on the Stelvio, I did it but with my Diavel and that day had sunny Summer weather and 0 cyclists. I those are the best days to go there when it is quite hot as not many of them will make it there.

Today, I replaced the long front turn signal stalks with a set of the much shorter rears.  Replaced the crummy looking mounting screws with SS socket head buttons too.  I bought a complete tail section for $49 (shipped) from a parted-out bike on Fleabay.  I also cut the reflector panels off the rear license plate holder and took off the chain adjustment sticker.  Now the bike looks like the ones in the sales brochure.

Looks like it's time to resurrect this thread  :001:  I can't believe no one's posted here since December 10th  :155:
I recently changed my bars to black LSL superbike X-Bars along with Motogadget m-Rear bar end mirrors and LSL "crash ball" bar ends.  Also just added, the tank side fairings were painted red to match.  I had gone from the stock silver fairings to the '15 RR black pieces, then had the silver pieces painted.  Since my last posting in this thread, I also had the rider and passenger rearsets powder coated to match the frame.  Next on the list is to replace the hideous front brake fluid reservoir.  Just trying to figure out which one to get.... 

The bars offer more sweep and rise than stock and I find them to be more comfortable than the original bars.  The black looks better to me, but that's subjective.  The diameter of the mirrors is 75mm so approximately 3", smaller than stock, but because of the wider stance, less is wasted looking at my shoulders.  My stock mirrors vibrated quite a bit at 70+ mph and that's been eliminated with the Motogadget mirrors.  Overall width of the bars has been reduced slightly, which I wanted.

Was looking to put the same exhaust on my bike.
Is it the stainless steel or titanium?
Is the deep throaty sound and how loud is it ( cant really tell from videos on youtube).

I was hoping the exhaust bracket wouldn't cover up the arrow logo.
On emlineamoto's site the logo is put more to the right of the the can and isnt covered.

Still looks good


Just saw in your other post its a full titanium :028:

Jucam my brother first and foremost I apologise for the delay

Well, I rode around 1200Kms with it installed, exchanged gazzilions emails with ppl on UK and OZ trying different settings adjustments, different push rods etc.

It didn't work for me, I took it out and sold the thing.

I believe the main problem is that it cuts power to allow gear change on the fuel injectors and this although efficient is not the most accurate method. there are communication problems related with BMW ECU not being accessible and therefore limiting the systems integration per se. Hence opting to use the injectors as cutting point.

It is very smooth and accurate above 6K RPM but sensibility has to be adjusted fairly high (85~90%) increasing the chance of false neutrals ( pain in the arse ) cutting time if left too long affects high RPM changes, if left too short affects low rpm changes.

Since the system doesn't talk to the ECU, when you opt to use clutch changes, the engine bogs down momentarily when you hit the gear pedal. It is cutting fuel to the injectors, remember ?  :)

I will investigate TRANSLOGIC system which apparently cuts ignition rather fuel to allow gear change

The OEM solution is a much better option at the moment, IMO

Hope it helps

SimonUK I know you were also interested on this, so there you have it.

Hi mate first off yes I fitted the can bus connector in the left hand side fairing , the are three plugs , I used the plugs closest to the centre of the bike , on the connector end you use cable 1 and 3 just as it states on the website ,although I can't remember what was + and - I just used a multimeter
I do have some pics but the after pic isn't very good as it's been pissing down here all day so it's taken from inside in limited space

I got then from Amazon they come in a set of two but the main beam is a different fitment , I haven't been out on it yet and probably won't over the weekend , i used a light meter for before and after and the LED's do give out slightly more light , but not a lot ,i still get a cut off line on the garage wall so i assume the pattern is ok

I've painted them in the past and (in the nuk at least with terrible roads, terrible weather and salt on the roads) the paint starts to chip and flake within a few months.
I swapped mine for a RR which is black already!!

i'm hoping for a bit more mileage than a couple of months....here in Sunny Rainless Southern California we don't have salt and terrible weather BUT we do have pot holes big enough to swallow 18 wheelers...LOL....if all else fails i will have it powder coated.... :018:

but i must say it does look a lot better black than the aluminum.....!!!!

Picking it up in 3 weeks and can't wait. Although I was somewhat disappointed with the damage to the radiator fins. It's new with 0 miles. Dealer can't explain but new rad will be fitted prior to collection.

so, its finally time to show my bike in real  :152:

I left it almost without change - just installed:

1) Evotech radiator guard
2) Evotech tail tidy
3) Evotech front and rear spindle bobbins
4) Evotech paddock stand bobbins
5) Akrapovic slip on
6) rim stickers from RACEVINYL
7) Motografix tankpad

In my eyes this is enough for this season  :169:

Yeah, you need a CT454B. Which size did you buy? I have a CT 125B sitting waiting for me to fit but I'm concerned it is so very small. I have the bike booked in the dealership on Wednesday for a stalling problem and thought I might quiz them about any potential problems of fitting a small reservoir.
This mod is well discussed on this thread;

I have had the CT125B on my bike for the past 5000 miles and no issues so far. I will have to keep a close eye on the level when I put new pads in the front just to make sure that it doesn't fill back up too much, but apart from that she is good to go.

I went for the CT127 in black which I think is the bigger one but the size looks about the same as standard , what adaptor pipe did you guys use the one with the biggest bore ?

Post by: Swampwhore on February 28, 2016, 11:20:56 PM
Thanks.  Not sure...  The levers are Pazzo and the reservoir Rizoma.  Not an exact match, but reasonably close.  I was considering having the wheels powder coated to match, but I'm going to wait a bit and see.  Might be too much....

Post by: Woody146 on February 28, 2016, 11:28:23 PM
My last bike I went gold...( same color gold) and I ended up finding some AWESOME wheels...also same gold...they are called carrozeria or something close to that.  Idk if powder coating will get close enough to match as that is all anodizing

I also found a guy in the uk who makes custom 3D gel badges (most motorcycle oem badges are 3D gel) and had custom gold Yamaha ones made in that pazzo gold (had to overlay 2 colors to get the shade, but looked SWEET). I thought I had seen some BMW 3D gel badges

I collected my bike from the dealer. They have fitted a double micro-switch on the clutch lever after consulting with BMW, under the warranty. On the ride home (55miles) I had no engine stalls going down between 3rd and 2nd. Looks like a result  :047:

Picked it Up !

Yes, I collected the bike from the dealer - rode home in a wintry showers, hail, sleet and rain (which was a pain), got home and let her cool down fully before rinsing off all the road salt...........  :157:

The only thing that made things brighter was, a mate picked his up at the same time, but had much further to go! lol  :164:

Tomorrow will be stripping and cleaning properly and sorting out mods and bits that I need, that part I will enjoy  :062:

Needed adapting to fit - getting the curved front section straightened perfectly neatly is very hard, hence needed the neoprene.

MaxBMW....actually the cost of the bearings were comparable to the bearing houses.....free shipping and i didn't need to travel to the bearing house....:)
also ordered new valve stems and KLR valve shims....

BUT the real reason for ordering from MaxBMW is the M&Ms....LOL

Installed Rox 2 inch risers in about 15 minutes. All you do is unscrew the clutch cable from top yoke and unclip the brake/throttle line.

Wymann -  :020:
Rode roughly 120 miles after work yesterday and the bike actually feels foreign to me now.  Turn ins are so much faster, I found myself crossing the center line over and over again.  Accelerating out of the turns had my rear wheel slipping (could be the new MetzRR7's fault as well, trying to scrub them in).   Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase and since it fits with all the OEM stuff, there was only a BST sprocket to buy in addition.  Plenty of thumbs up from the cagers while I sat at the red lights.

Well I have spent the last two evenings getting her ready for France on Friday. Thanks to all the useful info on this forum the jobs were made so much easier, they included but we're not limited to;

Givi tank lock ring fitted for the small 4lt tank bag, which I think is ideal for camera, passport, wallet etc;

Wiring in the TomTom Rider 400 via the can bus plug; and fitting it using a Ram Mount top handle bar clamp ball;

Fitting of tank protective pads;

Fitting of radiator and oil cooler guards;

Fitting an optimate charging lead;

Oh, and whilst all of the panels were off, cleaning and coating her with some lovely ACF 50 to keep her sweet and lovely looking ....... Plus properly cleaning and oiling the chain. I think she is ready to go and is set up just to my liking now all fettled and set. Ready to be run in over a couple of days in France. Just luggage fitting and I'll be ready for the off.

  :305:

So thanks to everyone who contributes here, it just makes silly things like panel or seat removal easier when you are doubting you have undone everything. It has been therapeutic and has given me a lift and I have enjoyed my garage time!

Now after that bloody awful storm last night I now have my fingers crossed for some better weather 😎

Hi Doddsy,

I had ordered a Hepco & Becker sports rack - but it hasn't arrived in time  :230:

So I have has to put my Kreiga US20 on the pillion seat - using the rear seat loops at the back and the very well thought out slits in the pillion pegs at the front. The straps are a good inch away from the seat tailpiece. But for good measure I have put some foam heating pipe insulation around the strap at this point - just in case.

That with a small tank lock bag has given me more than enough for this short trip. But in June when I head to Portugal I will use the Kreiga either a 20 or 30 with two 10s on the side. The sports rack should make the strapping dead easy for this arrangement.

I just about to head for bed as I have a 6.50 appointment with Le Shuttle tomorrow. But I'll see if I get time for a picture or two.

Had the bike just under two weeks. Jusr over 700 miles on it now. 1st service done.

Today I'll be fitting:

1) Evotech radiator and oil cooler guards
2) Nav IV via ram mount (thanks for the guys on here who've given me advice)
3) R&G paddock stand bobbins
4) Wunderlich sport tank bag
5) Akrapovic slip on (2nd hand from dealer after customer dropped their demo bike whilst getting on it. Exhaust has a small mark on it but for £199 thought it was a good deal)

After much deliberation and for what seem to have took ages (3 months) to make and get delivered I have finally fitted my custom D3 Components Tail Tidy.

I asked Daz @ D3 for a tail tidy to take a 6*4 plate, plug and play, and look OEM and boy did he deliver. I am so pleased with the product, the angles and how it sits on the bike. There is no cutting wires just all plug and play.

Does it utilize the existing number plate light?  That's the only reason that the Evotech one is not completely plug and play--you have to cut and splice the wires for the new LED light that they supply, but no big deal to do and it looks great as well.

Please see my post on the mods forum as per rule at the beginning of this long thread...

Your foot position is lower so you need to adjust to that fact on both sides of the bike, No issues of any kind with usage.

Sargent seat arrived  :046: but been too busy to fit it  :232:


(How much / where from ?)

I have been looking at one of these about £249 - I was thinking of contacting them to see how big a group purchase would need to be to attract a discount and then seeing about maybe organising it if it was worthwhile  :164:

I have just got in from the garage just this very minute. I have just fitted black stock side panels instead of those silver/grey things that were standard on my bike. A bit of a bugger to line up the 'tags' that connect onto the side of the front tank cover by the middle mounting screw. Whilst I was flaffing around, trying to line it all up, the loose tank cover put some light scratches into the paint on one side  :230:

These I will have to get polished out properly, they are not too deep but they are there and a bit too much for normal cut / renovator .....

I also fitted the H&B sports rack with a new lock set (lots of fun with those tiny springs and wafers setting up the lock to my key), so I can switch easily between pillion/seat cowl or sports rack as and when I need to.

Bike is in for its first service on Friday - derestricted and fit the Pro plug  :007:   I might treat myself to an Akropovic silencer as well. Can't wait.

Got caught in a downpour this morning.... have to say the electronic controls is just amazing... with only a few km to home I left it in dynamic mode but what a buzz hitting the brakes at 130km with the front just pulling up perfectly whilst the backend is sliding all over the place, then accelerating and the traction control kicking in with the rear wheel spin and when it did grip the wheelie being pulled back down as the rear starts spinning as you hit 2nd.... I didnt want to pull into my driveway

Got it out today for some rare UK sun, finished the full exhaust few weeks back and had it remapped by Geoff at Hilltop Motorcycles
A totally different bike now and I know for certain it is now fuelling properly, not running super lean as it was with just the exhaust replacement to the point it would have destroyed exhaust valves
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: miles on May 05, 2016, 09:53:15 PM
I had the valve check done yesterday.  The mechanic (who generally hates everything and rarely has a good word to say) was amazed at how perfect they were.

I haven't treated my bike gently, and to hear that everything looks perfect at almost 20K miles makes me feel a lot better about thrashing the bike as much as I do.
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: gaz2212 on May 05, 2016, 10:32:48 PM
On my first dyno run with just the replacement exhaust the bike fuelled correct up to 6000rpm but once above this it was super lean 17.4:1 at 7000rpm, Geoff left the choice with me continue with a before run but risk damaging valves or remap fit MWR air filter and then rerun, I decided i didn't want damage, he remapped and now it fuels all the way through the rev range perfect.
On his loaded dyno he returned me 152 bhp @10000rpm measured at the rear wheel and 87ft/lb torque @ 8600rpm. Geoff told me you roughly lose 15% of engine bhp to rear wheel bhp through the drivetrain. On this very loose theory BMW quote 160 engine bhp on his theory rear wheel bhp would be very roughly 136 bhp so the numbers sugest a decent increase, but these are only numbers the proof is in the riding and WOW it was sure worth it the bike feels totally different :152: :152:
He really does know his stuff, works on many BSB championship bikes and also IOM TT bikes

Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: gaz2212 on May 05, 2016, 11:13:29 PM
No pcv or any other device, Geoff has written a map that sits along side the bmw map in the ecu, his map is using the original on bike sensors and continually adjusts as you ride, this is totally undetectable by bmw computer and if they write an update into the software it allows it to go in and gives the dealer no faults, his map then rereads the original ecu and applies itself over again. You can tell it is learning when you first start the bike from cold as the revs fluctuate very gently as if idling roughly, it will do this for roughly 2 minutes then settle and run perfectly, this is how Geoff explained it to me, i'm sure it is more complicated than i can explain. He developed this by reverse engineering the factory ecu and then applying his tuned map to this

Installed the Hornig mirror extenders so I can actually see behind me,lol. In the picture you can also see the clone red reservoir and the MotoGrafix tank pad and stompgrip side clear tank guards. You can also see how far out the Trex frame sliders protrude on the sides of the bike.

The mirror extensions are extremely well executed, they even provide a cap for the bolt that goes into the stock mirror stem.

I missed a few posts for all the cosmetic mods I've done, and I've done a lot, but here is the latest. Just had the shop send me these pics. I pick her up tomorrow! Originally frozen dark blue metallic. Loved the color, but not very crazy about it, and didn't pop as much as I wanted it to. According to the shop, the pictures don't do any justice to the finish. It's supposed to be a satin finish for both the blue and the white. You can maybe tell a little from the front fender, but the lighting in the shop sucks. It's not as flat/matte as it appears in the pics..

Thank you. That's not the comfort seat. That's the Sargent seat, and even though it's a bit harder than the stock seat, it's comfortable because its shape, and you don't shift up and slam into the tank when braking like with the stock seat. And it looks really nice. I recommend it.

Congrats! Nice choice of mods. Had to look up what 'bobbins' were :) Of course you English had to have a different name for spools. Get yourself guards for the radiator and oil cooler, as they're very exposed to rocks and other debris on our bikes. One little rock can cost you hundreds of your local currency.

Picked up my new bike yesterday, and the first thing I did after I got it was to ride it straight to the garage from the dealer to add a slip-on, paint the cat with heat resistant paint, add some crash protection and radiator guards.

The cat came out nicely!

Quickshifter still works fine.

Just screw the clutch cable adjuster all the way in, undo the pivot bolt and slide the lever out away from the micro switch

Yesterday had 12 k service done.  Castrol power 1 oil, (the oil we put in the shops sponsored race bike) brembo lcf 600 brake fluid and front and rear flushed and bled.  New oem air filter (our shop had the race bike dynoed with a bmc filter, k&n filter, and oem filter...oem had best results) and new cam chain tensioner replaced and made the engine no longer tick (only hear roar of shorty full akra now). Bike is running CHERRY!!!

Our shop/ rider is also riding at superbike at Laguna seca week after July 4th..will ride out ther and support the SJ BMW race team! (And probably be put to work)

Need to order tires....3 k and the rear pr4 is TOAST and the front pp3 still has a plug lol..will have another set of those put on next week (mines and del,Puerto tear tires,up!)

Also headed out to Sonoma tomorrow to hit up nascar.  Should be fun

Ended up having to find a car wash in France, then again in Holland; all was good in the end! The worse part was parking her on top of an ants nest at Assen (under the solar panels) then finding ants in my helmet on the ride back at 130kph!

Excellent weekend.

Aaaargh!

Reminds of a time a few years back on a Spanish trackday. Guy pulls off the track and practically throws his bike against the tyre wall. Pulls off his helmet and throws it on the ground. He had left his helmet on the floor of the pit garage overnight and was rewarded on the back straight with a huge poisonous centipede crawling across his face! They had to pour boiling water into his helmet to get the bugger out. I was told it was 12 inches long.  :087:

Since then I am always real careful where I leave my helmet even in the UK. Creepy crawlies in the ear mid corner are not welcome!

In my case, I have left my helmet locked to the pillion seat so the little blighters had crawled all over the bike and then into the helmet; thankfully they weren't particularly aggressive although the end result was the same, ants crawling on your face when you don't expect it is 'interesting' to say the least! On race day I decided to leave my helmet in the helmet park, one bitten and all that, literally ;)

Fitted Supersprox 45T Gold rear, Standard front socket & DC Xring Gold chain. Took the links down from 120 to 118. Looks beautiful & a great upgrade from the OEM. Mine were very worn & covered 14,500 miles.

Changed the two headlight bulbs! Took all of 15 minutes would be even less next time now I know. ONE screw each side is all that you need to take side covers off. Then longish fingers and care. Dipped beam - unscrew 1/4 turn weather cover, pull off connector, unclip bulb, fit new, reverse procedure. Used the Philips xtreme 130 for this. Main -  unclip plug at bottom, rotate bulb 1/4 turn ccw, fit new and plug in. Used the Osram Nightbreaker for main. Done

Superb result! I have never heard of Autosyl but now want to get my exhaust looking like yours. Would you mind sharing where one can get it? Is it some kind of paste that one applies with a rag?
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: kinada on July 07, 2016, 05:58:43 PM
Its a metal polish. Comes in a tube of paste or liquid form in a tin. The paste is the best. You can get it at most auto shops. Or ebay. Or Amazon. Etc etc.

What part of the U.K. are you Eden? I've found Bahnstormer Maidenhead to be good  :028: Just had the 6000 mile service done and they charged me £140 as the fluids were done on the previous service? Plus I had the tyres done and they were the same price as an independent tyre fitter. Those HP levers look and feel great.

North West England! Think that's a bit far for me to travel :002:

I can't quite believe how much I've just paid for those levers, got cheapy eBay ones on my other bike! But don't want to take any chances with the cruise or QS not working properly.

Sold It !  :012:
Just not getting on with it this year...find I take out the other bikes all the time and leave the poor S1R in the garage. Took her out on Sunday on familiar roads and just found her too flighty and jiggly...so decided she must go. Got £9k in trade in against a new Honda Africa Twin, which I thought a good deal. A year ago a BMW dealer offered just £8k against a dearer Beemer.
Africa Twin because I intend to do some 'gentle' off road, and didn't want the bulk of a GSA. And DCT coz of my iffy clutch hand which needs more surgery. Plus, the Honda dealer is local, so no more 90 mile round trips for those little jobs.

So, goodbye S1R. Good bike, just not right for me.
And this is a good forum...useful info available at my fingertips.

Keep on riding, have fun, stay safe.  :028:

I would also be interested in any temperature data.
I fitted a set of these guards a few months back, great value, great fit.
I've since noticed my temp has climbed into the 90's a few times.
Unfortunatly I didn't take much note of whether this hapened much before the guards were fitted.
A few times the temp has climbed over the 100 mark while stationary in town but the fan seems to be able to handle this OK and bring the trmp back down.

I put on Cox guards and had no discernible increase in temps, max is around 218f when stopped (before and after), this is in 95f ambient temps. Gets up to 218f in winter as well (when stopped), just takes a lot longer.

Not to worried about temps as not much standing traffic here and don't ride in town.
Temp rises quickly when stationary even at traffic lights without the gaurds so don't think they will make much difference. Fan should cope if or when it's needed. :305:

That is 1000 times better, thanks for the idea.  I had some MetalGlo polish on hand but ran out after doing just the right side.  I'll get to the left side once my Autosol comes in!

Also, a dremel buffing wheel really helps for the stubborn stuff.

I rode in the heat of Italy last year in July and even in stand still city traffic I did not see temps go above 103 Deg C. Even in the cooler months the bike still frequently rises up to 100 Degrees C and the guards have had no discernible impact on this behaviour as far as I can see.

I too have the cox racing rad guards and did not notice an increase in temp at all.  This bike does get hot in bumper to bumper traffic and then cools right down once moving at speed.  My dealership recommended them and will not have any issues with warranty.  These radiators are not cheap and a rock to the rad would be catastrophic..and I'm not sure if a rock to a radiator is covered under warranty as it is more of a road hazard/ the riders fault.  Rad guards are cheap insurance this does not happen.

normal high temp for me is 218 to 224 (224 was stand still in 100 degree Fahrenheit  weather)

My dealer also recommended them as a must have. He also recommended not fitting the Dynamic pro plug as he said it was designed only to work with Slick tyres fitted. As he is also one of the top men in Pirelli tyres BSB team I'm quessing he knows what he's talking about.

My dealer also recommended them as a must have. He also recommended not fitting the Dynamic pro plug as he said it was designed only to work with Slick tyres fitted. As he is also one of the top men in Pirelli tyres BSB team I'm quessing he knows what he's talking about.

The "slick tyre only" may be a slight exaggeration but it is not that far from what the Rider's Manual states:

"DYNAMIC PRO
The DYNAMIC PRO mode cannot be activated unless the coding plug is inserted. The DYNAMIC PRO mode was developed for situations in which the rider has an open view of the road ahead and the surroundings and is riding on surfaces with the high level of grip generally encountered only on racetracks. Similarly, the assumption on which the parameter settings for this mode are based is that the motorcycle is fitted with tyres with a very high level of surface grip.

The behaviour of the ABS is the same as in DYNAMIC mode, with one exception: ABS control is not active at the rear wheel when the footbrake lever is pressed. Under these circumstances, the rear wheel can lock up. The function for detecting the rear wheel's tendency to lift clear of the ground is also deactivated."

Just put the plug in and wring it's kneck  :028: personally I didn't notice to much difference between dynamic and dynamic pro and as for slick tyres the standard DRC's will have far more grip than either you or I can cope with. We've all rode bikes pre rider aids so just use throttle control and feel. It's only in the upper rev range where you need a little finesse without big brother watching over you  :038:

May be why dealers won't fit it?

Put the plug in you'll be fine. As for it being designed to only be used with slick tyres that doesn't make any sense to me.  So does that apply to every other litre sports bike (around the 160 bhp) that doesn't have rider aids??  :084: You'd have to be completely disconnected from the bike (throttle to rear tyre or a numskull) to keep rolling on without feeling the rear tyre is losing grip.

Be careful of how much trust you put in the printed words of this manual.  Perfect example is the statement that there is no difference between ABS intervention at the front in Dynamic or Dynamic Pro.

There most certainly is.  I can stop this bike from racetrack speeds in DP without ABS intervention with all the power and feel needed (and stand the bike on its nose at 100 mph).  You can do neither of these things in Dynamic mode (once rear comes off the ground 1/4" the ABS intervenes and pretty much cuts braking power to less than 50%).  Very scary situation which is why I've put the bike in Dynamic Pro and don't take it out unless it's raining.

Another couple pieces of misinformation are wheelie control and RWL mitigation....you can flip this bike in Dynamic Pro (backwards or forwards!).  And if you are aggressive enough you can get past wheelie control in Dynamic.

There are inconsistencies throughout this manual relating to the riding modes so I'd take what you read with a grain of salt and determine what works for your abilities/style.  Just make sure you are out of eye and ear shot of local law enforcement when executing because this bike has a sh#t ton of power (acceleration or braking) which will guarantee either the front or rear will be in the air whilst you are exploring the limits.

Have fun!

Hi Lowrance really interesting point about dynamic v dynamic pro and ABS.  If I'm reading you right the bike stops quicker in dynamic pro to dynamic mainly due to the ABS not kicking in letting you basically pull as hard as the front can take? I would have thought the ABS would have been set at this limit anyway. However in wet or damp conditions the gradual braking of ABS is a benefit as I guess the front will lock in pro? Thanks for your advice and riding at the absolute limit  :047:
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: Lowrance on July 21, 2016, 02:49:42 PM
Don't know if the front will lock in DP...haven't tried it (have gotten the back wheel off the ground while in DP and in wet conditions...this is down to the impressive grip form the tires more than anything else).

Reason I change modes in the wet is for the additional traction control intervention....while powering out of corners.  Doesn't rain here much but on occasion when I've had the chance to play in the wet I put it in Rain mode.  It's actually pretty impressive.  Started off gingerly applying throttle on corner exits but by the 4th or 5th corner was whacking the throttle wide open at the apex.  You can feel the TC intervening but in a very unobtrusive way.  BMW have done a really good job with the TC on this bike.

Cheers

Kriega US30, with a US10 on on top that had all the stuff I wanted to be really handy - lock, waterproof suit, waterproof gloves etc.

The extra weight was hardly noticeable & the bike was amazingly stable at decent  :164: speeds.

A fellow forum member who lives close by is possibly going to give her a test run for me (the bike that is !!) soon. My S1K is still not run in yet stuck at 200 miles. Will I ever get to ride her  :020:

Not been on the forum for a bit so might list everything I've done since getting the bike.

I've put over 1300 miles on her in...18 days so probably need to calm it down a bit before I completely devalue the bike! Overall I've found the bike really easy to ride, like the handling but I don't love it yet...not sure I can love any inline 4 to be fair.

Paid the money for the HP levers...they're not worth it in my opinion. It's not made much difference on the span of the clutch and I've left the brake on the middle setting as didn't like it on the closest setting, left free play in the lever that I didn't like.

Asked the dealer to put the crazy chip in but they forgot to had to post it back out to me. Just put it in this afternoon so not had chance to test it yet!

Also got my friend to put some Evotech crash bungs on and radiator guard today. Nearly dropped it yesterday so the crash bungs are welcome!

Can't find neutral...thought my Aprilia was bad for that!

Find it really jerky as well. Under 3k or when I try to hold a steady throttle at any revs.

Accelerator is a bit weird too; when I accelerate normally it feels like there's too much slack in the throttle? Like I'm accelerating and it's not really going that fast. But if I put my hand right round the throttle and grab a proper handful, it goes off at warp speed - I want that warp speed all the time! Maybe my hands are too small :155: Can't let go of the throttle and position my hand differently every time I want to accelerate.

What mode are you in? From my experience, reaction time to accelerator movement varies even from "Road" to "Dynamic" ("Rain" mode throttle is really dwarfed). For me I stay in "Dynamic" mode all the time except for long highway stretches where DDC is more plush and I find the throttle to be super responsive.

Someone else mentioned getting black screws for their Ztechnik screen and after putting the stainless ones in I could not agree more, the contrast is not great. Was going to get high tensile steel which are blackened but they don't have great anti-corrosion properties. Ended up getting some A2 stainless ones which are coated. Used a company called GWR Fasteners and their ColourFast range and could not be happier with the finished product. It's a shame the Ztechnik company branding is not a sticker, I'm considering murdering it out with some black ink.

Well, since I got the bike about 5 weeks ago I have mounted an R&G tailtidy (cleans up the back of it a lot!), new chain as the old was slightyly stretched, and a new BMW tank pad (the same as the black one that's stock on the RR).
Today I attacked the tank and cover with my Meguiars machine to remove som scratches. Started with Menzerna Super heavy cut 300, then MG correction comp and finished with MG finishing compund. Came out really nice and shiny! :)
Thinking about maybe a Tecbike cat cover next.

Weather has been a bit crappy for riding so I've been doing a few bits and pieces on the bike.
Made up a tail tidy out of a keep left sign, had it powder coated and fitted it to the bike.

Traced out the mounting bit onto a sheet of aluminium from the original, marked out the rest from measurements cut it out with a jig saw and drilled the holes.  The bends were made simply using a vice and a hammer.

To remove all the wiring from the original, without cutting you need to enlarge the hole the wiring passes through to enable the connector for the number plate light fit.

- Rode back from Gloucestershire to South Bucks. That takes me up to 260 miles on the clock so the first part of Running In is done. Also allowed myself to move up from Rain to Road mode.
- Bought an Abus Disc Lock
- Stuck my Datatag label on (on the frame, just past the pillion foot rests)
- Ordered a Torx bit set
- Ordered 4 x Ground Anchors (we are a four bike household now)
- Pondered how to solve the "vibrating mirrors which don't actually afford you any kind of rear-view anyway" issue... am drawn to Highsider Victory mirrors but that means new bar-ends so I am in need of guidance

I got le bike looked after a local suspension specialist and he changed the rear spring on the bike to accommodate my big ass.
We went from a stock 7.5kg/mm to a 10.5. The ride is still quite comfortable but i hope it will help on the track.
The front suspension mod is next but it's quite an unknown one...

Also went out and did some light adjustment, and took some photos at the same time. :)

This morning, I test rode a Panigale 959. A truly beautiful bike and a powerful reminder of why sports bikes are so brilliant. Speed through the corners way higher than the S1000r, but it just wasn't powerful enough, so I've gone back to the dark side on another BMW. The 959 was so perfect / user friendly, I actually think I'd soon get bored with it. The S1000rr is just as easy to ride at the same speed as the Ducati, but the rr has soooo much more performance on offer, although it's much more of a challenge to make use of it.

Due to holiday's and other commitments, I don't actually make the swap until 17th September.

Can't wait.

The r has been superb, but the rr is something really special.

This morning, I test rode a Panigale 959. A truly beautiful bike and a powerful reminder of why sports bikes are so brilliant. Speed through the corners way higher than the S1000r, but it just wasn't powerful enough, so I've gone back to the dark side on another BMW. The 959 was so perfect / user friendly, I actually think I'd soon get bored with it. The S1000rr is just as easy to ride at the same speed as the Ducati, but the rr has soooo much more performance on offer, although it's much more of a challenge to make use of it.

Due to holiday's and other commitments, I don't actually make the swap until 17th September.

Can't wait.

The r has been superb, but the rr is something really special.
Pretty sure that's Bahnstormer Alton if I'm not mistaken, was there today around 3pm and remember seeing that/your RR parked up.
Enjoy your new ride mate, exciting times await you in a month or so and a chance to say your farewells to the R.

Bought these:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Super-2x-Universal-Motorcycle-Bike-7-8-22mm-Bar-End-Rear-Side-View-Mirror-Black-/252404350874?hash=item3ac478bf9a:g:bGsAAOSwDuJWysrX (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Super-2x-Universal-Motorcycle-Bike-7-8-22mm-Bar-End-Rear-Side-View-Mirror-Black-/252404350874?hash=item3ac478bf9a:g:bGsAAOSwDuJWysrX)

They're copies of the Rizoma Reverse Retro bar end mirrors. Knocked up my own adapters out of some plastic bushing and irrigation joint hose, and they're mounted between the bars and the factory bar ends.

First pic is just one of the mirrors as they are supplied. Second is the supplied adapter disassembled. The rubber sleeve in the bottom middle of the pic goes over the bar end next to it. This rubber piece is the only part of the supplied adaptor I reused.

The third pic is a plastic bushing I bought from a local hardware store. The outer diameter fits perfectly inside the rubber sleeve, but the inner diameter is slightly larger than the M12 bolt used by the standard bar end. I cut the plastic bush down to fit inside the rubber sleeve, and then cut a piece of the clear hose in the last piece to fit inside that. I has to cut the clear hose along its length as well and just wrapped it around the bolt. After that it just all went together and the mirror is mounted between the factory bar end and the handlebar.

I didn't take pics of the pieces I modified unfortunately but while it's not exactly pretty, it all works perfectly and you can't see any of it.

Also fitted up the DanMoto headers last week but I don't have any pics at the moment.

Fitted up the dan moto headers to the stock exhaust on the weekend. Took me about 3.5 hours (I left the servo attached and just cable tied them up out of the way). Wholly sh!t balls. It sounds unreal, like those bikes I remember going passed me on the street as a kid making some sweet sweet noises.

I have an 1199 Panigale and it's very common to ride the S1000R on a Saturday and on Sunday I ride the Panigale on the same roads.  What I find is that at what I'd call 8-9/10ths street riding I can run pretty close to the same speeds. But the Panigale is so effortless and "planted" that I often am surprised at the speeds I'm coming off the apex on the Panigale. Not bikes are a blast to ride, but with a different twist on how they go about it.

Cheers.

I do need to do some fiddling on the throttle side cause the throttle is now stiff due to tightening it all up. I'll come up with something, even if I just get some new bar ends spun up from some stainless rod or something. If I had the tools it'd be easy enough to knock up what I want.

Hi. First time posting here. Had my "R" exactly one week today and wow. Fitted front axle protection and rear oversize R&G bobbins (which required modifying) to fit. Had it up on my new paddock stand for the first time - felt good. Checked the TP's and found them to be 28/36 ! I got the bike with 600 miles on it from a BMW dealer (managers runaround) so wondering if the previous user had better knowledge of tyre pressures. :002:

Congratulations on joining the club, you should have a lot of fun with your R  :028:

28 psi at the front sounds a little low to me for road use, but 36 psi at the rear is OK.  The official pressures for every bike I've owned have been 36F / 42R and I find them to high for road use.  I personally like to run 33 / 37 on my R and find a great improvement in compliance and grip.  But tyre pressures are very subjective and you'll find someone out there running every combination you can think of, so it's worth experimenting to find out what works well for you.

Swapped it out for a Rizoma unit. Used their multi-jointed mounting arm. Took it apart and used just the elbow that attaches to the reservoir in conjunction with the stock bracket to mount it.

I wrapped a paper towel around the line coming out of the reservoir and clamped it with vice grips. Then took the reservoir off the mount, turned it upside, and disconnected the hose. Then immediately attached the new reservoir and poured brake fluid from the old reservoir to the new one then took the vice grips off the hose. Managed not to spill a drop.  :001:

Installed Sargent

In brief:
1- Good structure
You're more sitting flat - as opposed to slanted forwards and downwards on stock

2- padding is poor. Seat is firmer than stock


This is from a ten minute ride

I don't think the padding is 'poor', in fact I think it is much better quality foam than the OEM seat, it is definitely firmer, but this is not always a bad thing. All the Sargents I have had take a while to 'bed' in !

Another thing, many OEM seats use such poor quality foam that the foam itself ends up compressing completely as you sit and you in reality end up just sitting on the hard seat pan as the foam offers not real support

Simon, I'm glad that it works for you and that Sargents bed in. I was hoping that the s1000r sargent seat would be plush on top yet firm when fully seated.
For my weight at least. I'm 93kg/205lbs.

But the rear portion of the seat where it dips lower in a concave manner nicely 'cups' my ass. I'm not sliding backwards or forwards.

Time/ass will tell if it softens up.

I'd like something just like that that can hold a 16 or 20 oz bottle of water.

Its as high/wide as a Note 5 or an iPhone 6plus. and about 3cm thicker.

I doubt you'll put any bottle in there.

I ordered one today and should be receiving it in a week.

Will post photos.

But I checked dimensions already as stated above.

Took mine out to Watford to do the Met Police Bike Safe course. This is the second course me and my other half have done and we thoroughly recommend it.

I'm going to post a thread elsewhere to plug it.

Added Bar-End Mirrors, removed stock mirrors, added Luggage Tie Downs, Removed Pillion Pegs...

Bar Ends by Rhino (http://www.e-securedsite.com/RHINOMOTO/store/myProducts.cfm?parentcategoryid=4%7CBarend%20Sliders%20and%20Mirrors&productID=318&showDetail=1&categoryID=36|BMW%20Barend%20Sliders&vendoridtodisplay=0&filterFor=&collection=4%7CBarend%20Sliders%20and%20Mirrors). Hindsight Lane Splitter (LS) Mirrors by CRG (http://www.e-securedsite.com/RHINOMOTO/store/myProducts.cfm?parentcategoryid=4|Barend%20Sliders%20and%20Mirrors&productID=73&showdetail=1&categoryID=79|CRG%20Barend%20Mirrors&filterFor=&collection=4%7CBarend%20Sliders%20and%20Mirrors&collection=&upsell=1). Luggage Tie Downs by, erm, eBay... search for "BMW S1000RR Rear Subframe Racing Hooks Tie Down Brackets For Racing & Trackdays".

Then I took a ride through bits of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire to test the mirrors. They are Rock Solid and give a great field of view. My only cautionary tale is you have to get used to the fact that "Objects in the rear view mirrors may be closer than they appear"... a Helluva LOT closer!. I got my other half to ride behind me. Here's how the conversation went:

OH: "How far behind you am I?"
Me: "Oooo, maybe 10 to 12 car lengths"
OH: "More like 4"
Me: "Oh..."
OH: "How about now?"
Me: "2 Car lengths?"
OH: "You'd struggle to park one car between us."
Me: "Ah... Time to reset brain"

Ooo and must say thanks to SimonUK and BikerTim for their sound advise on part selection. And to Steffen at Rhino who was super-helpful!

Ebay has many 250 mm working length, 23 clicks of adjustment. Nitrogen filled damper.  No more head shake with front end.

I had to swap the ends of the damper to make it work and you can reuse stock black nut where it mounts to the fork leg but need a new bolt.

That's because you weigh 180ish pounds!

I still can't believe BMW didn't make at least three different software programs for DDC.  Standard, heavy and light.  Would've been very simple to add 10, 20 or 30% to the standard damping values (and conversely remove same) which would've allowed owners to swap springs based on their weight.  Huge mistake on their part!

Stupid BMW...... :112:

I have always thought BMW could have done more with the colors on these bikes, so I decided to play around with some vinyl and see if I could highlight some accents on the bike.

I'm quite happy with the front fender and the hugger, but I'm not sure about the chain guard, but all of these are temporary just to see how it turned out.

I really dont like the matte black on these parts, and I want them gloss black or carbon.
I have some serious cosmetic plans for the bike this winter, and I'm probably going to start a thread on that.

Replaced a pair of Rizoma brake and clutch levers with the HP foldable BMW ones. Reason being that the brake one would noticeably shake while riding so one felt it not that safe and two I suspect it was inducing the brakes to shake when applied firmly.

Now it is normal as any levers. Quite happy these also have great feel and I can position them just as I had the others!

Today I spooned on new shoes.  Michelin PR4 on the back, and a Michelin Pilot Power 3 on the front. (I've had good results and like this mismatch combo).   I also cleaned the front brake calipers and inspected front pads.   Then in the mail I received my first accessory.  (Wunderlich tank bag sport). Now I have room to carry my rain gear, shield cleaner and a few other things.   Then I read that BMW kind of frowned on the radiator guard.  So I removed the one on my bike to see how this effects temps when riding.   If there is no difference then it will go back on.  And last but not least, I cleaned and lubed the chain.  I'll save the removing all the goop from the front sprocket for another day.   

Tomorrow I'll put on a couple of hundred miles and who knows, I might clean her.

I'm genuinely impressed by your tyre spotting skills!
The tyres have been really good so far. I got them after chewing through the Rosso Corsas that it came with, compared to them these have much better grip. I don't know if the pirellis I had were cooked after a track day, but their grip levels were pretty poor. These feel good so far.

Love this thread and the beautiful things people do to their bikes so I though it's about time I did some of the things I wanted to mine; Evotech tail tidy, Akra, Ilmberger belly pan, side panels and Evotech oil/radiator guard. Loving the black...

Sold it back to BMW while I wait for the new one to arrive in March. After putting it back to standard I realised just how bad the standard steering damper is. That is by far the best upgrade I'd done... :028:

Me too,  :159:  Shame really, but I really can't ride in the cold weather so hopefully I won't miss too much. Took out a scrambler while I was there, didn't like that...

Yes I'm the same, no winter riding for me and they gave me £500 more than I paid for it a year ago! Scrambler & 9RT are truly awful things 😲😲😲

Last weekend I decided my bike was a bit too subtle, so I added some wheel rim stickers.
This weekend I put on half of the delivery I've received from Moto Composites  :001:
The Rizoma mirrors, levers, brake reservoir, Evotech tail tidy and rad/oil cooler guards, Akra (etched, not sticker) and cat cover have been on there for a while  :007:

Generally speaking yes but having them like that helps filter through traffic , assuming the rider can see enough with them like that.

Did some pottering in the shed to the beloved new S1R - added R&G Crash bungs (learnt how to take the side fairings off) / Added rear spindle bobbins / fitted a fender extender / added R&G Bar Ends / fitted oil cooler guard (to match the rad guard) / bought a can bus plug and wired it to the TomTom400 Power cable then connected to BMW system - all good ! / bolted everything back up together !  Bought this in late Sept with 650 mls on - now up to 1500...

Finally got around to cleaning the chain lube out from the sprocket cover and surrounding area.  Hopefully this will stop the oil dribble onto the exhaust and the smell of burning oil.    I've also change her oil and filter.  Checked her air filter.     I have an idea of using the exhaust mounting bolt or the open bolt locations on the bottom of the engine to make a drip pan to keep this crap off of the exhaust.   If I get a part made I'll be sure and try to hook the rest of you up.

Just got back from the dealer for my annual state inspection and second annual service.  It's a little bit of a haul for me, so it gave me plenty of time to remember why I love this bike so friggin' much.  The motor, the handling, the heated grips!

Much to my wife's chagrin, I had an ulterior motive - to talk to the dealer about another bike.  I have so much love to go around, I decided to put down a deposit on an R9T Racer to add to my stable.  Trouble is, the S1000R is so much fun to ride, I'm afraid I might neglect the new bike.  First world problems.  :305:

My flyscreen was looking pretty rough and pitted.  I polished it up and it looked better, but after finally painting the crappy looking silver high-beam surround I thought the red might look good so I painted it.

I've actually decided to do a bunch more red.  Tonight i've been prepping my CF front fender for some red, too. 




Oh, and I put some short-stalk turn signals on, too.

That is a gorgeous looking bike, but the comfort seat colors have got to go.  As the only cosmetic task in your list, a seat cover would go a long way.  Engine protection might be the next least expensive, but sensible task.  Rearsets next, for more comfortable operation, then I'd probably save forged wheels for last.

I have the same problem.  Who makes a seat cover for the comfort seat?  I inquired with Luimoto and they only make one for the standard seat.

Very nice!!  :152: :152:

Wish I had the spare cash for those, alas will have to save up for a while. Any issues or worries with getting the tires on and off?
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: starpower on November 15, 2016, 05:42:00 PM
Tires on and off a tad easier then the OEM's due to a deeper drop zone. I was sweating bullets as I pried the tire on but was relieved to see no deflection in the rim and I had to really put some weight behind it to get that big 'ol 190 on there. It is a wise design in that they machined the bead seat and around the lip of the rim and over to the face a couple mm. This has 2 advantages - no clear coat to chip and the surface has a "sanded" like finish with a roughness of about 180 grit sandpaper. IMO this allows generous use of tire mounting lube without fear of tire slip/spin on the rim as it will have an extreme grip on the rubber tire bead.

Handling it truly trans-formative, feels more like a sporty 750 and the DDC is notably more compliant. The front end gets lighter easier on acceleration as you would expect from a lighter front end and the harder drive it allows.

For a couple of decades I've dreamed of having CF wheels after reading everyone saying that there is next to nothing you can do to a bike to transform it so much. The sobering price kept the leap from happening. My stars aligned when I closed a big sale, realized that this bike will be a longer term keeper and the huge sale.

Hi All,

I installed the Givi Tanklock adapter and a XS308 tankbag.. the first adapter + bag combo was shite.. the bag kept popping off the support and on one occasion hit the kill switch just as I was entering a nice sharp left hander "on a mission". I kept from crashing the bike but scared the crap out of myself.

Amazon replaced both items and the new items are working very well indeed. I did a 1800km trip a couple of weeks ago over all sorts of canyon roads, mountain passes and windy country roads and about 400km on highways through spectacular sunshine on the way out to pouring rain on the way back.

Also installed a Givi phone support for my iPhone 6+ inside which my extra battery pack fits in perfectly so GPS wasn't an issue.

I may install a larger screen however, the current windblast helps me to keep the speeds down.

The bike is a beast!

Regards,
NuTTs

A buddy has a NoMar in his basement, so I change my own tires, so itg is good to hear about the tire changing being OK. And I am guessing that these take the OEM brake discs and sprocket carrier? And are they the same rims as for the S1000RR (OEM)?
Title: Re: What have you done to your S1000R today?
Post by: starpower on November 16, 2016, 05:36:52 PM
Same as OEM RR wheels (not the forged HP wheels), uses the OEM discs and comes with its own sprocket carrier that will not accept the OEM sprocket so figure on a new sprocket (same hole layout as most after market lightweight wheels). I went with a 44 tooth for tad lower rpm's on the hwy.

Maybe I should rephrase that - those are stunning, but they make your tires look really 'dirty'!

My curse of living 1mi. up a funky dirt road and it can't be easily cleaned off. I bent the rim on my R6 playing dirt biker long ago. Can' t ever ride in the rain without knobbies, who has a S1kr with knobbies?? A few times at the track I get asked "what is that powder on your tires?" I always have fun with an answer like "It's Traction Action Powder from Dunlop" or some similar smart ass retort.

Can't you make a path?
Maybe use a broom to clear large rocks.
There has to be something you can do.

I think you missed the 1 mile part. It's not the rocks that are issue it's the dirt dust

New set of Rotobox CF wheels, the workmanship is dazzling, damn near impossible perfection. Weave seems are extremely hard to find. Both the lightest and strongest CF wheel on the market and got them on sale for a $900 discount.

Today I thought about the bike a lot, I thought long and hard about stuff I can buy for it, places I want to ride it and the amount of fun I'll have on it....

....when I eventually pick it up!!  It's going to be another 4 weeks or so before I can collect it, after the house move :157: 

I've never been the patient type.

Only took 10mins in total and come up real good. Will have to do down pipes to match.

Hey guys! I'm sure you've seen all of these before but thought i'd share anyway  :001:

Today I replaced my grey side panels with the S1000RR black unpainted textured ones - VERY happy with the result WOO! Managed to do it without snapping any tabs as well which is pretty good for a right-hander with two left hands  :018:

Installed some Pazzo Levers which I took for a spin and I love! Easy install and with some TLC to the switches managed to do it without any damage once again! Cruise control still works which is great!

Also installed the Evotech tail tidy. This was a little bit more fiddly but came with great instructions! In the end more-or-less plug'n'play   :028:

Oh and my favourite mod - has got to be my alien head reservoir sock haha not great for the aerodynamics, but the more badass a bike looks the faster it goes right?  :152:

Oh and I installed that little red dongle of death - dynamic pro  :005: Installed more so I don't lose it. Don't think i'm game enough to use it on the roads when in an emergency the tech support could genuinely be a life saver!

Bike is starting to prove a little more expensive than I first anticipated.........

I'll be painting the cat cover matte black in the next few days - poor man's way of fixing the eyesore. I'll post up pics of it when I'm done :)

I'm reading the Elon Musk book right now, I would love to see one of those Falcon 9 rockets launch. Was it amazing?

I have a bum arm right now (possibly from holding on to the S1 everyday since I bought it), so I cant ride, but I did install a set of Fiamm horns after I couldnt get a box trucks attention on the freeway when his brakes were on fire.

I am not happy with the sound yet and they may get relocated to a common plane in front of the radiator to get a 3db boost. But first I would need to manufacture a bracket.

@Wyman, did you replace your suspension? How do you like the full exhaust? Did you take a noticeable hit on low end torque?

I took her up to the dealer for some scheduled service (service light).  Anyway I had already changed the oil, checked the air filter and all she needed was to flush the brake lines.  (supposedly) I also had them check the cam chain noise. (I can't believe that is normal but at least my concern is listed prior to warranty running out.)  Then there is the weekish rear brake,  Also said that it was fine and that they could lock the rear brake. I can too but not with the same pressure I can on other bikes.   But isn't like I use them except for slow speed maneuvering and to hold the bike at a stand still on a hill.   

I guess the next big service is the 18k mile one where they check the valves...

So far loving the bike and looking forward to a 6 trip and 3 day rally on her later this year.

The noise on start up is normal...a continued camchain rattle is due to either the chain being beyond serviceable use or the tensioner is faulty. I had the latter.

Not today but Friday took my one to dealer 100 miles away (was a bit chilly on way down) for the camchain rattle on start up but only it does if it has sat a few days, service manager said over phone that it's probably oil leaking past camchain tensioner, gave me a gs 1200 to use till they've fixed mine, dealer has been excellent so far John Clark Dundee, that gs is great for doing distance on just not exciting enough think I'm going to go for a xr as I need knee replacement but am a bit too young for it yet,xr will give me best of both worlds comfort and excitement.

Same symptoms as mine had. 18000miles on the clock at the time. JC of Dundee replaced tensioner but it still had a rattle so they replaced the whole camchain and sprocket kit and after that it was sound as a pound.
Traded it for an XR not long after that was done.

Here's hoping it just needs the adjuster, mine's just done 9000 miles, riding back from Dundee on gs some difference very comfortable, old knee struggles to keep bent on the r if going a long run and away to do north coast 500 with wife in the summer so a good bit more comfortable for her as well.

Yeah he's one of the greats, was at isle of man , he was on a HONDA SP2, nobody could touch him out of the corners or on the straights.
At the track day even though it was a Honda ride day (he is a Honda ambassador), it was a open invite, didn't matter what you rode he was there to help you.

Added a screen (Wunderlich Tour), Bar Risers (Wunderlich 20mm) and Engine Protectors (GB Racing)

Screen adds a little cockpit air bubble and reduces some helmet pressure but not much off the shoulders - an improvement and a good compromise as I don't want a big screen on the bike .  Bar risers haven't made a massive difference tbh but do feel ok and slightly better . Engine protectors complete the package of spindle and crash bungs.     

Fortunately the screen was an Ebay job and the risers off a forum member which took some of the sting out...not bad upgrades

Installed a vizi-tec Supabrake II brake light modulator.  Should have done it ages ago!  Took her out for a good thrashing, made sure I cut in front of cars at high speed, then jammed on the the brakes just to test it out.  (kidding  :007:)

Came home, gave her a good wash, and now I'm gonna go out and cut my grass in February.  Not because it needs it, but because it's 77 beautiful degrees outside!  :152:

Thanks for posting your impressions of the Wunderlich touring screen and the risers.  I've been looking at the same touring screen for my bike and considering whether I should go with the larger Marathon screen.  Based on your impressions and what I've read from other sources, I'll likely go the Marathon route. 

With the risers, I'm not sure if 20mm will be enough.  Would love to be able to try these things out and return them if they don't work out.

Hey, I was thinking about doing this. Curious to know how you went about it and where you got the straps to do this? All 4 loops were included on my previous bike and it was perfect for my Kreiga tailbag. Would be nice to have it on this bike too. Thanks.

It's all just stuff I had laying around. 1" webbing strap, 2 rivets, 2 washers, done.

Thanks for posting your impressions of the Wunderlich touring screen and the risers.  I've been looking at the same touring screen for my bike and considering whether I should go with the larger Marathon screen.  Based on your impressions and what I've read from other sources, I'll likely go the Marathon route. 

With the risers, I'm not sure if 20mm will be enough.  Would love to be able to try these things out and return them if they don't work out.

Yep - I'm quite happy for the 'still-sporty' stance and as I've been riding naked bikes for a while, so am not too bothered by the wind even on long trips - BUT if you want more handlebar comfort and you're taller than me (I'm 5'9") and more effective wind protection then it might be worth going bigger - both items I bought were used but all in excellent condition which I think also says a lot about their quality - screen is very well made indeed. Hope you get sorted !

I used the excess strap from Kriega mount you really don't need much cut and sear the ends with a lighter to stop fraying loop over then drill holes.  If you don't have the strap from Kriega cut a couple of inches of your kids school backpack :)  Heat up an old screw driver with a propane torch and push through hole to stop fraying then remove bracket and hook over the screw and replace.  Looks stock as the straps match and they tuck in nicely under the seat when not in use.

Traded it in for a xr,loved it but really struggled with my knee tried the comfort seat which did give me a bit more leg room and helped a bit (will put it up for sale when I get home from offshore) but after we decided to do north coast 500 with wife coming on back decided to go for xr so comfort for me and her and still have this mad engine.xr arrived at my house yesterday I won't get to see it for another 17 days just bought it off photos from dealer but wife said it looks brand new only done 3350 miles.

Hey guys - some more superficial mods to report!

Red rim tape from these guys:

Spray-painted the cat and a portion of the pipes black.

What do you guys think? Looking at the side-by-side photos I am now torn as to whether it looked better before or after these mods......   :087:

Thinking about getting the black tank cover - any idea how much that might set me back? And anyone know part number?
Would also love to anodise the pegs in black - but i'm too pussy to attempt the brake install at home :P

The factory tail bag has a glandular problem, and I'm confident it will more than fit my luggage, or pizza-delivery, needs. Actually, I'm excited to test it out in West Virginia this spring, in search of a straight road.

Raced a corvette zr1 yesterday. For a few miles (in Mexico of course). I couldn't keep the front end down in 1,2, or 3 but I stayed out in front of him. Noticed he had Akra exhaust on that thing when I got behind him to turn. I think he wanted to keep racing but I was on my way home and once I split some cars. I was gone. Looked up specs of that car when I got home. 638 bhp. Idk if it was modded other than exhaust. Regardless. S1000r seemed to win on city streets/ off the line. Maybe on a super long straight line with no light he would have won. Zr1 tops out at 205 mph. I think a RR would win that race though

Dropped off for 18k service.  As well as front pads, high beam fix, and replace the waterpump(warranty for that part)

Gonna be PRICEY!

Got this as a loaner..

It's not bad..pretty basic bike besides hydraulic clutch.  No shift assist, no gear indicator, no gas gauge, no electronic suspension. Does have heated grips and Sounds amazing with those akra slip ons.


Would I buy one? Probably not.  But a fun / different experience.

Oh, knobby ish tires feel weird on the street.

Yes, an initial thoughts kind of review would be great :028:

Edit: heads up, check out Evotech for parts. I've always found them better quality than R&G, in particular the S1000R tail tidy.

Picked up my bike from the 18k service.  Everything in spec and feels like a new bike! Had to wait 1 day for the water pump.

Felt weird getting off the scrambler and back on the s1kr.

It was pricy with the new pads, 18k service and plugs, air filter, and fork oil change, and the castrol oil.  Worth it though, bike feels brand new!

That's the main reason I went for it - was thinking of the black and red but this has a more mature, sophisticated feel. Sometimes, less is more ;)

I've never had an issue with R&G but I'll keep an eye out on Evotech's parts too. Definitely need a tail tidy ;)

Yea  :005: is right!  I knew it was gonna be pricy but was hoping closer to 1000$

That will take the price down a lot if you do the oil and take it all stripped.  When I was working there, a customer brought his 14 RR in stripped down on a flat bed tow truck.  I don't think his was over 1000$.

The 8 hours of labor for the 18k was 1000$. If pre stripped down, probably half the time or even less if no fork/ oil change

I also had the brake pads replaced which was 220$ and that high beam bulb was 20$ but no labor charge on those (since it was already stripped down for forks)

You could probably do the fork oil change yourself too.  Drain from the bottom of the forks and fill from the top.  It's not necessary but recommend to do the forks.

Interesting.  The service manual FRU values for all the 30k jobs total 52, which comes out to 5.2 hours IIRC.  Did they actually need to do anything else like a timing adjustment? 

I know that there's the kick the tires, lube the kickstand, etc checks as well, but...

The narrator has no idea what he is talking about lol..he can ride, but knows nothing about these bikes.

Everything was in spec so they did no adjustments.

idk about the intakes, but i know the shop is very clean.  maybe they did cover them and then uncover for the video?

the oil fill cap is off to let the oil drain out better.  When I changed my oil on my yamaha, I would do that as well.

you do not want to see ANY of the employees there in a bikini..unless you want to burn your eyes out after.

labor $105 per hour (doesn't make up the $640 difference).

Check your invoice and see what they charged you for (brake pads maybe, my friend took his own in).

 :084: there are the "video fees"  :034: :008:

Today I've added some bits from my old 2014 to the new one. I cannot stand the factory tail unit. Sadly my new levers didn't fit, the brake seemed the plunger was too long for the hole for it in the lever. Here's what I've added.

Comfy seat
Bigger screen
20mm bar risers
Carbon hugger & chain guard
Carbon Tank cover
Tail Tidy
Hyperpro Steering damper
Sat Nav wiring & mount
USB charging socket

Now I just need the rain to stop so I can go and ride the r=thing.. :305: :305: :305:

I installed the HVMP  weights on mine at the end of the last season.  Did not do many miles on them yet so hard to give an opinion, I did not have that bad vibrations in the first place only tingly hands after 100+ miles in one stint.  I think these help but need to put some miles on to see for sure.

"You could probably do the fork oil change yourself too.  Drain from the bottom of the forks and fill from the top.  It's not necessary but recommend to do the forks."  :034:
If only there were drains at the bottom of the tubes. No such luck.    :084:  If you look at the DVD, there are some expensive tools used to mess with those forks. The RR are easier to get the tubes off, the R has more crap in the way. My shop says 2 hours to do the fork oil change. I'll do the valves myself. Those gaskets, the dealer puts new ones in because they don't want the bike back with a leak. An owner can risk it. I have re used my rocker cover gasket several times on the K bike but little O-rings and seals always get replaced and they add up. If a valve adjustment is needed, more time and parts over and above just taking a measurement.

Im just going off what my tech said. Drain from the bottom and fill from the top. I really have no idea what is involved. But if it takes that long. It would sure account for why my bill was so high. I just read on an rr forum of someone who diy it. It looks like a PITA and that was with non ddc forks

Yeh the HVMP ones are not cheap but they are well made, had them on 2 bikes now.  When comparing other bar ends look at the weight and finish.  I think the HVMP ones are the heaviest you can get...

I swapped the mirrors out.  IMHO its the mirrors buzzing the bars not the other way round.  Either way neither buzz or blur anymore after fitting some cheap chinese mirrors.  See my older posts.....

Knight Designs lower footpegs installed. Haven't taken it for a test ride yet, but just sitting on the bike the difference feels substantial.

Hope this isn't too much of a thread jack... The nut that's at the back of the shift actuator (top center of left photo) is just free wheeling. Should that be tightened up toward the actuator or in the other direction?

Holly snikies that's expensive.
Plus, on our bikes, you'd need access to underneath the seat to get to the bottom side of the plastic to thread that screw through. Too much hassle. a rivet does the job fine.

Taken those awful fork reflectors off my 2017, double sided tape is a bit bitch to remove but got there. Then did another 60 miles, quickshifter alone is worth the upgrade it's brilliant.  Hit the rev limiter twice, I need my 1st service soon and plug in the DP dongle.

After reading up on stuff from this forum I took my rear wheel out for the first time (my last bike had a single sided swing arm, so was easy peasy) - so back to the grindstone of juggling a wheel.

SO - picked up some captive spacers, popped out wheel and managed to get it back in on my own - the captives help massively, as does having something under the wheel to help level / align the holes etc !  The caliper is the biggest curveball - also watch the paint on the swing arm - quite tough but mega thin !   

On the suspension, again, read some thoughts here - I ramped up the pre-load at both ends (not all the way mind) as I'm quite heavy but it ended up being too harsh - backed off the front so about 3 lines are still showing on the adjuster - rear pre-load is around 4 complete turns up - not ideal but the 'magic carpet' is pretty much back ... a bit of a compromise but still handling very well indeed as it is now...will try a sag test later this spring

New tires put on last week.  PR4 on the rear and am trying the new Michelin power rs on the front.  So far I like it. Different profile shape compared to pilot power 3. Corners very smooth and transitions very smooth.

Post by: ESWAKE on April 05, 2017, 03:59:08 AM
I'm a little late on posting this, but on the 27th of March was my first ride on the bike! I bought the bike in January, from a fellow forum member(mcbagpiper.)

WOW  :046: :152: What a machine! I've only put on ~500km on it so far, but I absolutely love the bike. I haven't stopped smiling since my first ride.

I'm coming from a ninja250 - So it's a HUGE jump up, but I feel great on the bike. The amount of power is just insane! I can't wait for the warmer weather to go touring on it and take it camping.

I'm surprised at how hot the heated grips get even on the low setting(one dot).

I'm very happy I decided to go against some suggestions on not upgrading to it, to be fair though they don't know of my riding history.

I think I need to play with the preload a bit more, but it feels almost spot on how I currently have it.

The rear is starting to get to wear markers in the center(~7,500km) So I bought some roadtec 01 to replace the stock Corsa. Hopefully they'll last longer. My hopes are that the harder center will be great for all the straight roads here.

I'm not sure on how I want to mod the bike - It came with most things I would have wanted! But I'm thinking of removing all the stickers(OEM and a couple from previous owner) and keeping it nice and clean looking, as it's the white version. I've also have been thinking about getting the rims power coated gold. However the gold rims might just be to flashy for me... My mind hasn't been made up yet. If I could afford the Marchesini Gold Forged wheels I do it for sure, but I can't budget that. I've seen a picture of one with them on it looks great to me.

I'll most likely end up getting a rad & oil cover for it soon, as I do go down gravel roads once and awhile, and I think the black ones look nice and add to the look of the bike.

Can't wait to get some real seat time in!

I've had the same problem.  From what I can tell, it's linked to trying to post photos that exceed the size limit (2MB).  Some of the images that exceed this limit automatically get rotated.  But, when you post a smaller version of that same image , the problem goes away and the image is no longer rotated. 

Has anyone else observed this phenomena?

It's definitely not a size issue in this case as the image is only 104kb. That sentence is probably best read in a Frankie Howard voice.

I just email the photos to myself from my phone and it gives you the option to downsize them before sending. Then just save them back into the photos folder on the phone to sit alongside the full size originals. Both versions look the same on my phone, but maybe this is what screws up the orientation  :027:

Day 6 with my 2017 S1000R. First service booked in for next Saturday. Had a very enjoyable Saturday and Sunday (before the showers came) putting on 350 miles. The commuting for the remainder of this week will get it close to the 600 mile target.

I rode the same megaroute each day which was essentially Weybridge to Windsor and back and onwards to Dorking and back via Newlands Corner, then to Ascot and back and finally Farnborough and back. These are old and current commuting routes: a nice mix of urban, twisty and hilly backroads and fast dual carriageway. This got a far more energetic run in than my 2014 bike which I bought in winter (won't do that again). The Dorking to Guildford via Newlands Corner (A25) is fun and perfect for losing a bike's virginity.

No numb hands but legs felt tired and sore bum (only took a 5 minute break plus petrol fills). A decent comfort seat is now on my wish list.

I'm even more in love with the S1000R. There is quite a difference between the 2017 and 2014 models IMHO. It's nimbler, easier to turn, acceleration seems faster. It can't all be down to the forged wheels.

Plenty of bikers on the go. I saw another 2017 bike, a grey one, on the A25.

One thing that has changed... I never ever saw the 2014 bike go higher than 36mpg. Never! The 2017 is already averaging 42mpg. I was never convinced my 2014 was quite right despite dealer saying otherwise.

I love this bike so much!

36mpg,doesn't sound right that mate.
Don't think my 14 has ever dropped below 40 at it's lowest and the average is more like what you are now getting now.
Glad you are enjoying the new bike.

I hate the thought of putting cheap, knock-off Chinese ebay stuff on a precision engineered German motorcycle... But I had to solve the problem of the rear brake pedal's position after installing Knight Designs pegs. I searched around for a bit trying to find the original manufacturer, but had no luck.

Then put 120 miles on it towards the 600 needed for the running in period.

Picked it up from the dealers ! 2017 in grey. Got it home then fitted sw moto satnav holder (wired the feed to the plug by the horn) Evo-tech oil cooler & rad guards, Evo-tech paddock stand bobbins, GB racing engine case set and Givi tank ring.

Then put 120 miles on it towards the 600 needed for the running in period.

On my 2015 the accessory socket on the left side was the right one to choose  :084:

I hate the thought of putting cheap, knock-off Chinese ebay stuff on a precision engineered German motorcycle...

Here is the link in case anyone else is interested. http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-Adjustable-Rear-Foot-Brake-Pedal-Lever-For-BMW-S1000RR-2010-2015-/272496336074?hash=item3f720c1cca:g:uuQAAOSwHMJYN9om&vxp=mtr

I have owned my new 2017 bike for a few weeks now. Booked in for its first service on Saturday having covered some excellent miles in SUNNY Scotland - 250 miles in one day with my wife riding pillion. With the exception of a bit of a numb bum, no issues and my wife found it very comfortable.
Since owning my S1000R I have  fitted the following:
Wunderlich sport screen
Evotech tail tidy
Evotech swingarm bobbins
RaceFoxx quick release fuel cap
At the service I am having the HP levers fitted.
After more years than I care to mention/count of full on sports bikes I am really enjoying this bike.

Hey Websterize,

I really need to find a good solution for being able to raise and rotate my bike in an area too confined to turn it around. Does this stand all ow for you to do that??? I might buy it righ now if you say you can do this using it.

Yes, you only need a circular space with the diameter of the length of the bike.

We set off yesterday afternoon for Wasdale Head Inn in the Lakes, did Hardknott pass & Rihno pass to along with some much better roads. Returned today after a few beers last night via the coast road then over to Clitheroe and back over Rivington Pike. In total around 270 miles covered. The bike is booked in for it's first service next Saturday, I cannot wait for the full rev range to be unlocked and Dynamic Pro.

I'm so glad I got the 2017 version, that gearbox made this weekend trip an utter joy. 7 weeks wait for a 10 day Euro trip, I can't wait.  :152: :152: :152:

FYI..dynamic pro isn't simply unlocked on your first service, you have been given a red connector that you need to plug under the front seat to unlock it, bring it on your first service and let them do it!

Today I checked my SAG and took the long way round back home on the commute ;)

The big mount is the cradle for my TomTom rider satnav which is wired into the accessory socket. The tank ring is for my Givi tank bags. They simply snap onto the ring which holds them proud of the tank so it doesn't get scratched

Finally got enough miles on it for the 1st service. So just back from Preston where they removed the rev limiter and plugged in my red plug. So now I have dynamic Pro again. I've been grinning all the way home. I forgotten just how much top end rush these things have. The thing is mental and wheelies for fun now, I love it. The gearbox feels even better now too, so much smoother than my old 2014 and the downshift blipper is ace.

Now we just need some sunshine.... :305: :305: :305:

Someone else mentioned getting black screws for their Ztechnik screen and after putting the stainless ones in I could not agree more, the contrast is not great. Was going to get high tensile steel which are blackened but they don't have great anti-corrosion properties. Ended up getting some A2 stainless ones which are coated. Used a company called GWR Fasteners and their ColourFast range and could not be happier with the finished product. It's a shame the Ztechnik company branding is not a sticker, I'm considering murdering it out with some black ink.

I can still clearly see the SatNav when in the riding position. Impressed with both bags, the build quality and overall feel of them is excellent. I've not used the XS307 yet but I'm quite confident that it will do the job asked of it with no worries.

Hope this helps (if you haven't already bought them !)

Had my 18k mile service today. Nearly fell over when they told me the cost at £680!!!! Guy on the phone suggested it would be £3-400 when I booked it in.

I've spent less buying whole motorbikes!

Looking through the costs it's got 6 screws at £8.13 each +VAT.... WTF? They must be some very, very special screws! They were more expensive than the spark plugs.

Ah well, at least that one is out the way. Just need new discs and pads to add to the bill now:(

Discs are 4.1mm according to BMW - good for another couple of thousand miles....I suspect they might be good enough for a lot more than that.

Pads need doing though as they're just under 2mm. These pads (EBC HH) have managed more mileage than the oem brembo's and cost half the price, so I can't complain really.

Min Disc is 4.5, but check by yourself to confirm

Brad new Brel of stock pad is 3.4mm, 2mm is good

But if you have to change disc, you must change pads

I bet those screws were for the rear sprocket. You can re use them if you use fresh blue loctite. My buddy had the same 18K service and paid $1600. He needed fresh chain and sprocket, fork oil change, valve clearance check and the usual engine stuff. It is a ton of money. I am avoiding it by trading in my 12,500 mile bike on a new one.  :112:

Thanks, very useful.

I'll check the disc and go from there.

Yesterday filled it up again.

A personal pet peeve is the small fuel tank.
I can only do 2 trips to work and back on a tank whereas I could manage 3 trips on my old bike.
Grrrr, wish I could have added just like 2 litres more and it would have been good  :151:

Otherwise starting to enjoy the bike more, even the shift assist is giving me less hassles the last couple of rides.

I didn't do it but had the 1st service done on Thursday :001:.  Took me long enough to get the 600 miles on it due to being busy with my business.

Funny, I'm having the opposite problem, I specifically bought the bike last week knowing I'm off for 3.5 weeks starting today, but my dealer can't get the bike in for the 1000km service until Aug 2nd :(

Now I'm stuck with a new bike I don't dare ride, in case something goes wrong before the service is completed.

First service is an oil change and head bearing check. Change the oil your self and have the bearing checked Aug 2 :) and ride that thing.

Fitted Gilles leverguards and a PUIG windscreen. Not sure yet if I like the windscreen, and it doesn't differ much from stock when it comes to wind tbh. Need to try it out some more before I make up my mind.

When you mean stock it's the big one "touring"?

I mean, it's gotta be better than the small one right?

Stock small one.
I got to test it on the highway just now, and there is a difference. I get more wind straight to the face now, not a lot but I can feel the difference (around 110kmh+). Lower speeds I can't really tell a difference.

If you intend to keep the cat box on, don't bother changing exhaust. No better sound or improvement, though it'll look nicer.

Put the OEM little bulbs back in the headlights. The bike didn't like the LED bulbs I put in...

The back side of the projector lens was even smoked up. Had to get in there with some Q-tips and clean it off.

Pazzo's finally arrived, I took a gamble at using the "special edition" white pazzo's. Had my hesitations, but jesus do they ever look good.

The pazzo blue adjuster is 1:1 the bmw blue.

very pleased, and what a solid unit.

I have been using chinese pazzo's for about 6 years on various bikes with out issue. The pazzo's are very much better in terms of the slop/fitment to the perch. As expected for $200.

I cant believe BMW used an adjustable brake lever, but not clutch. The clutch was so uncomfortable to me and I have large-XL hands.

now if Akrapovic could hurry the [censored - unaccepatble, you risk being banned!] ] up with the headers I could remove the "whisper drive" unit...

I had Pazzo's on my GSX-R, they really are great quality.
And I can confirm the anodising held up well in the sun for a good couple of years (black and yellow colour), and they saw use of about 65k km and were still in perfect shape when I lost the bike last year.

I need to take some pics and update my thread as well, just installed the Gilles X-levers. Also great quality, perfect fit but I have not used them yet so cannot comment on feel just yet.

I just read on an rr forum of someone who diy it. It looks like a PITA and that was with non ddc forks

I did my RR forks myself. Just loosen the fork cap while on the bike, remove the forks, drain, pump a few times, drain and refill.

Agreed 100% about that clutch lever, and TBH there should be a brembo radial master cylinder as well, but luckily neither are super expensive upgrades.

I bought a set of cheap ebay levers (will probably upgrade to Pazzo over the winter) and they're definitely not the greatest quality but the bike seems to shift a lot smoother now.
