Re: R1100S Handlebars....low and high standards?

Jez, the comfort bars are angled upwards as opposed to being straight as you might’ve spotted.
I got a pair a while ago on eBay because to buy new is over £300. Gulp!

Re: Running in complete

So the next milestone is 123,000 miles?
I couldn’t do long miles on mine without backside pain so I had to sell it. I have another bike for Sunday blasts and my trusty 1100S for touring on.
I know what you mean about it being quirky. Would a KTM or Ducati be left field enough?

Re: Running in complete

Did you have the bike from new? Well done on that milestone.
I’ve seen some pics on car sites where the trip meter is 100.00 and the time is 10.00.
Looks good but ffs I could never be so organised.

Re: Exhaust repair

I think this is the third one posted on here over the years that I remember. Nice bit of welding there!

Re: Exhaust differences BCR

I’ve never heard of any difference. Not that it means anything worthwhile!
Get your local dealer to bring up the relevant pages or look yourself www.realoem.com.
Can I ask why you want to run with a cat? I thought the popular mod is to remove it?

Re: My 2004 R1100S Diary

Many colours suit the bike, but black seems the best of all to my eye.
I have a spare set of Tupperware and I have been meaning to get it changed from silver to black. Maybe something that has a hint of purple when it’s in bright sunlight. Seems like a winter job!

Re: Too quiet!

I think Remus stopped making the 1100S many years ago unfortunately. eBay and patience is the answer. Just keep an eye out as there are many different exhaust systems available second hand. A replacement Y pipe will have the fitting for the O2 sensor. I’ve never heard of one that doesn’t, but I know...

Re: R12S small tank bag suggestions

The Engage bag is a perfect fit for the R1100S. I removed the bit that separates the inside into separate sections. I now carry a clear visor in the front curved area. The size is perfect for everything else with enough room to put the Zumo when I have a coffee break if I can’t keep an eye on the bi...

Re: R12S small tank bag suggestions

I use SW Motech and find them spot on. I have 3 different size bags depending on what I’m doing that day. eBay to reduce the cost?

Re: Back in the Fold on a Boxer :-)

Just a heads up Jez. When you fix the mirror mounts you will probably see a small gap at the base of them. This is normal as they don’t match the fairing absolutely perfectly unfortunately. It threw me but I found something on line about it and was reassured. I didn’t find Nigel’s instructions on ‘b...

Re: Foray to Moray ... and beyond

I’m not going to wonder anymore about 2 of you and 2 nighties. :shock:
All those milky coffees and all that cake and not even feeling guilty! :wink:
Looks like a nice trip and cracking photos.
