Re: Oil Level in the Viewing Window

I'd let some oil out or it could end up in the airbox

Front Brake lever not returning

Hi all


I have a 2008 R1200RT-P, when appling the front brake I have to push it back with my fingers to return it to the stop position. The feel of the brake can vary when applied. Has anyone experienced this ? ABS motor has been replaced and ABS system fully operational.
