A job worth doing, is worth doing right. Not only that, you might as well as it's all apart now. The worst thing is to have to revisit something because of laziness or parsimony.

Nice to see my buds sticking up for me. Guess this means I am buying breakfast next time. grin



I do have a question, however. My brake discs are way outside of the wear limit. I am looking for alternatives to the high $$ BMW frisbees. Any suggestions?

I think JVB tried some aftermarket ones and said they weren't any better. http://www.jimvonbaden.com/R1200_Wave_Rotor_Install.html

Read at the end.

I put an EBC rear rotor on my 1100. It was a lot cheaper at the time than OEM. Good quality. No problems so far.

EBC--I'll have to check them out. $1500 for 3 disks is a bit steep. dopeslap There has to be some very good alternatives. I wonder if you can get them directly from Brembo?

I believe Brembo are contractually prevented from direct sales. I went with Grimeca - Motobins ship to the US in about 7 days.

So far those are the best prices I've seem. Thanks for the tip.

The good news is I'll only need the rear rotor immediately. I went back and measured them again and found I had missed a graduation line on the micrometer. Must remember to wear my reading glasses all the time now. smile Fronts are within spec and the rear is out.

Have you seen the Pashnit site? They frequently have group buys that are attractive.

And of course Beemerboneyard....

My replacement RID arrived today, but the guy ended up sending me the 6 speed version or to be exact the 5+E version. This was used on the R1100GS and R850.

Is it compatable with the 5 speed?

He sold me the 5 speed, but sent the 6 speed version. I'll keep it if it will work.

Any RID experts out there?
