Hi Henners Sorry but I've been off the site since I sold my R11s and spending too much time on the UKGSER site. If your still interested it's a booster plug direct from Boosterplug in Denmark. It's very easy to fit and I found it to much smoother especially at low speeds, but I didn't use the bike f...

1100S Booster Plug

Decided to get me a GS instead of lowering pegs and raising bars (expensive solution), so the 1100S has gone. If anyone is interested I now have a redundant Booster Plug I fitted TO THE 11S but only did 200 miles using it before selling the bike. Selling for £55 free postage to UK.

I already have a Shackleton high chair for the wife in the sidecar on my flying brick. Al....thanks for your suggestions you have confirmed my line of thinking. I bought some bar riser adapters from Suburban Machinery (which were a lot of money for a couple of small aluminium blocks), but I wasn't s...

Tired old legs

I'm sure this will have been asked before but I can't find a link. My old knees can't take being cramped up for longer than an hour with the standard foot pegs on my R1100S. I need to lower them. Any recommendations?

I e-mailed Teut at http://www.twsuspensiontech.co.uk who confirmed that the OEM Showa shocks can be refurbished at a cost of £130 ea. plus extra £25 for any spring/body painting.
He also recommended Nitron NTR1 front and NTR2 rear for my road use as a good alternative to expensive Ohlins.

Wow yellow springs......they'll match my silver/yellow bike!

I'd better give the guys at MCT a bell then and perhaps I could upgrade to yellow springs.

Hi blackal

Yes that's where I read about OEM rebuilds at MCT, however Damoace rides a BCR which I imagine has upgraded shockers and springs anyway compared to mine. Just wondered if anyone has had a rebuild on standard 1100S shocks?

My 2002 R1100S rear shocker has started to weep oil at 30,000 miles so a repair or replacement is imminent. I have read on this topic that the OEM shocks are repairable, however my Clymer states that the only replacement parts available are mounting bolts and bushes. I have limited funds to spend on...
