Re: Exhaust differences BCR

I’ve never heard of any difference. Not that it means anything worthwhile!

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...

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:

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

The RR mirrors come up on eBay often enough, sometimes not been on the road, from guys that only want to track their RR. So you should get a bargain. Maybe check German eBay too.

Re: sargent seat

As far as I know, the fittings were the same for all years.
There was a mod done by some guys to make the fitting more secure, rather than just using a coin to unscrew them.
Have a look on the oem site at the diagrams? Might point you in the right direction.

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

Looking good Houston. In the best colours as well. Looks like the original mirrors are still on it? As you probably know by now, they are only of use to check out your shoulders. A popular mod, remaining within BMW, are the S1000RR mirrors. Look ok and actually let you know what’s behind you. A brac...

Re: Mobile Charging

Been doing some reading recently on the GS site on the camping forum. Some good advice there on all manner of things including electronic charging. Most take a big power pack and charge phones, helmets, etc from the pack. When on a ride it gets charged from the bike to top it back up. That’s much th...
