Re: Thinking again of moving to the dark side

Make sure there is a dental practice at each destination to get fillings shaken out during the ride replaced.

Re: Definitive list of R12S worthwhile mods

Mine is pretty much standard as will albeit with the sportpack so Ohlins suspension front and rear. Had an interesting conversation with Colin at 100% Suspension regarding the Ohlins which I thought might have been a cheap mass production with cut down specs for the 12S. When he went as far as offer...

Thanks Chris Bought a replacement wheel from one of our illustrious members and had the wheel checked and straightened by ST motorcycles near Newark so I'm sure this is ok. I think you may be right with a ball joint but thought there would be some other signs if they were failing. I think there is i...

Re: Front Brake Judder

aaargh, its back again!!! Can't believe new wheel, discs, callipers, bearings, seals and tyre worked for a short time and now its back with a vengeance.

Re: Confession time.

Just returned from 2500m trip on the 12s with no issues at all and the bike has now clocked up 97,500m. I took an alternator belt with me but thats about it. I have had to replace one coil in all of the miles so I don't think that they are a major issue although there are stories on all boxer forums...
