Accessories, Mods and Appearance / Akro full system ??
« Last post by kiloechoxray on Today at 02:32:57 AM »
I have an '18 S1KR with a Akro slip on.

I'm considering getting the full system (headers) but I have some questions about doing this:

Does the full system require engine remapping to maintain original performance levels?

Does putting the full system on make it more likely that the bike will not pass emissions testing?  (I'm in Texas and we test annually)

Is the full system obnoxiously loud?

Thanks.

Unfortunately I can't find any parts fiche online that shows the latest gen of the two, so I can't confirm it or not. They sure do look the same, though.

Question is in the title.

Can I fit the new hepco becker c bow mounts from the RR to my R and use my existing luggage.

Waiting for a reply from bmw.

I'd be good if they do...

S1000R - General Chat / Re: Is this bike jerky at low revs?
« Last post by nrthrnbkr on Yesterday at 06:02:50 PM »
Iíve had 2x Mk1s and am now on my second Mk2 - the previous 3 bikes were fine, perfect even when it came to throttle control -  this 2020 plate though has a terrible jerk - just a slight mis-position at low throttle can lunge the bike forward in a corner - itís definitely a thing and baffling why this bike is different - engine is the usual bag of nails - it also whines loudly in top gear (my first Mk2 did it in second) - all part of  BMs reputation, backside saving and compensating extended warranty approach no doubt? . Great to ride as long as you put anxiety to the back of your mind !!!

I swapped saddles on my Fireblade for a Corbin and it was horrible, it completely ruined the riding position.

I only took delivery of my S1K this weekend but have done 100 miles over two days on the stock saddle with bar risers and I would say that for me the riding position is close to spot on, but the saddle could be a bit more comfortable. However as the riding position is so good, Iíll just keep it.


Iíve done a few 2 hour rides, but wouldnít fancy going much further.

Well, that's the thing- bums are different and prefer different seats. What works for one rider may be a torture rack for the next.

I've had the stock seat, the comfort seat and now the Sargent on mine, and I've done long (1000+ mile) days on all three.

But then, I've done plenty of 100 miles and 24 hour mountain bike races on skinny little racing bike saddles, too, so I may not be the best judge of comfort!
