My old boss, the dealership owner was an incredible dirt rider on a GS. He would always suggest turning off the ABS when going off road to insure one could use the rear wheel to steer when needed. Grabbing the front on an ABS bike or not on gravel is almost a guaranteed flop thou...

You may even check ebay to see if any of the Chinese part cloning suppliers make "dogleg" levers for your bike. They are incredibly inexpensive copies of brands such as Pazzo or CRG alloy levers. The cantelever lever lessens effort and yet is adjustable, in fact they ...

Beemer Boneyard has aftermarket slave cyl's and some of them may be different diameters. You could enquire. It might be easier to find a smaller master cyl. All of my hydraulic clutches have very easy lever resistance. Are you sure everything else is OK in there?? There is a ...

It will, BUT a small change needed to the black plastic trim pieces that sandwich the screen. you'll have to snip off the plastic locator nubs (1 each side) so the trim pieces flush fit into the screen. The 1100 has an extra hole in the screen for this nub . There will be no ...

Hi dirtrider, I re-route the O2 sensor pigtail. It was definitely not routed as you described and as I've seen on other R1150 models. Did the adaptation reset with the fuse and also TPS re-learn procedure. The bike runs good at idle as before, although with 50 -100 lower rpm tha...

There was a known issue with the tensioner on the left cylinder. Mostly the GT's but there have been some RT's recorded. I'm not sure if was a warranty issue or not back then. Dealers were addressing the problem at no cost to the owner in some cases. Like I sad it was a while a...

The left side cam chain tennsioner is difficult to get to. You need to remove some hoses and the left side throttle body. It is sealed by a copper crush washer. Maybe the previous person who put fixed it did not tighten it properly to get the crush washer to seal it maybe it came...

Or, being linked, both wheels locked on the gravel, so no speed differential F to R, so ABS was not activated? Just guessing. Newer bikes have inertia sensors that might know bike is still moving when wheels are not. Earlier systems only detect wheel rotation....
