Servo ABS brakes - deal breaker?

I have been advised that the Servo ABS brakes on the 1100s are a complete nightmare and bikes with these are best avoided. Stories of sudden loss of brakes with associated horrors abound. Is this the case? I have been offered a really nice condition 1100s but it has servo brakes. Background to this ...

Mamola Boxercup v BCR seat height

Hi folks Could anyone on here shed some light on actual seat heights between these models? Mamola looks much lower than BCR and what is the difference in suspension set up? How could BCR be modified to match Mamola set up? (Apologies in advance as this notion is probably sacrilege to purists on here...

Weatherproof switch for auxiliary LED DRLs

I can't seem to source a weather proof switch similar to the PIAA 'bug' shaped 74034 ones to use on aux LED DRLs for my RT. The handle bar mounted types on eBay aren't suitable and I don't want to drill the plastic so the adhesive fixing type would be ideal. One place did offer a PIAA switch for £34...

R1200S Handlebar risers

Thanks all for the leads - I have got a much better understanding now of what is available so if I do go down the S route I'll know what is involved. It seems mods to the 1200S handlebar has the potential to polarise opinion - there is a really interesting thread in boxerpix (by testudograeca) with ...

R1200S - handlebar risers & footpeg lowering kit

Hi This may seem a bizarre question (numpty even) but bear with me! Is it practicable to modify the riding posture on the 1200s to get closer to that offered by 1100s? (Position on BCR was fine for me except I found the bikee too tall) Does anyone have any advice on availability of footpeg lowering ...

That is the fixing style I was refering to. Thanks for the link _IT_

As for my user name, well it is simply the first two letter of the index plate, nothing more complicated than that.

Thanks again

TB2, looks like Claudia is in fine fettle at 60. Pics of Rhossili and the Beacons are a good choice of backdrop for a glam shoot! I am biased though as I'm originally from Neath but enough of that as other Trixsters will expect us to form a choir. I see that you have a tank cover and bag - however, ...

BCR tank protector pad

I'm new to all this so please bear with me! Any advice on where I can get an anti-scratch/prtoection pad for my BCR (assume tanks are all same shape on R1100s?). I'm sure that there is a simple answer to this but a call to local my BMW dealer reveals that BM don't make a specific tank anti scratch p...

Does anyone have any views on a recommended brand (Pyr...
