Ta for the identification.

Hopefully it'll function OK without a chip or I'll be upset to have wasted the £15 the guy wanted for it!

I was stopped at some ligths on the way home yesterday.....

.....when a bloke of a pushbike shouted over, asking whether I wanted a race silencer for the R1100S. After stopping for a chat it appears his R1100 was supplied with one but he never fitted it. So I dropped round later in the evening to find both a silencer and decat link pipe. http://farm8.staticf...

Job done.

Shock arrived back from Firefox today. Refitted and what a difference.

Front end is no longer 'clunky'. Gear changes are smoother too as the damping is back at the front end.

As a Prestonian I take offence :D. TBH it isn't really in Preston, but on the junction of A59 and A677 between the M6 and Blackburn. As such you are in the middle of nowhere. So unless you drive/ride for food then you are stuck there. There are a couple of pubs within a mile or so, though the roads ...

Wooden shock knocked up to allow the EMC shock to be removed for a rebuild. Basically I have a piece of wood shaped to fit between the lower and upper yokes. Once this is fitted and tied to the inside of the right hand fork leg (to prevent it being knockd out)I figure that I should be able to wheel ...

I am not worried about the shocks on the Beemer for set up....the RC8 and 996 keep me busy in that department ;-) Though with a little reading up, a methodical approach and a tracking spreadsheet it aint too bad! Found a spot that can repair the shock (Firefox Racing in Keighley). Should be around a...

R1100S Front Shock Replacement Options

The front end has been a little clunky of late so had a little look/feel at the shock and found the damper to be leaking :( The shock is an EMC shock so should be rebuildable. I have a couple of numbers to call at lunchtime to see who can do it......anyone any experience of having these rebuilt? Als...

I hankered after an RC8 in 2008 when they came out but at the time they we too expensive. However this year I got my wish and got a 'new' 2010 RC8. The bike is a missile, more power and grip than I know what to do with, even when running in (<7000 rpm) it was rapid. Adjustable riding position, nice ...
