Re: 2010 R1200RT ESA Load Issue - Please Help!

I bought a low mileage 11plate RT from an indi recently. I had similar issues, in that I couldn't get the preload to change, either on the display nor any movement detected from the shock. Turns out shock was fine, it just needed recalibrating which a BMW dealer did. Cause was bike had been sat wit...

Re: Hi from Suffolk

I love my 2014 R1200RT so much that I’m wondering if I’ve made a mistake swapping it for a 2022 R1250RT, but I’m a sucker for technology and can’t wait to try out the TFT screen amongst other gizmos. I’m looking forward to gleaning snippets of info and advice from others on this site who are more q...

Re: Pressure washers ?….

Skint hands, 8 various brushes none of which I can reach the intricate bits with, bad back, cricked neck etc etc. so I’m thinking m...

Re: Off to Spain/Portugal at the weekend

Hi James, I went to France, Spain, Portugal,back into Spain then Andorra and back through France. My first trip into Europe, 4025 miles in 14 days, absolutely brilliant. Some of the best riding was in Portugal, I'm sure you will enjoy it just make sure you have good breakdown cover and health insura...

Re: I've been BANNED

My wife loves our bike and likes nothing better than riding the Dales or Lakes and having a good pub lunch, at my expense, of course. But then she did pay half towards the bike :seeya:

PR 6s

Hi
Has anyone got any insight into PR 6s, How do they handle, how is turn in, light or not so. What are they like with over banding and road imperfections. What sort of mileage can I expect. Any info would be appreciated before spending loads of cash.

I rode them hard, but was a little shocked that they wore out that quickly right down to the cords.
Hi,
That tyre looks odd, it does not look to be worn as flat as the the R5 i have just taken off at almost 8k !

Re: Service light

Hi, Thanks for all your replies. I was interested to learn how long it might take to recover the outlay for UniCarScan UCSI-2100 and MotoScan Ultimate. Resetting the service reminder, to my preference, was easy. There are lots of other settings that look like I need to leave alone ! One problem is i...

Hi,
Does anyone, in the UK, have any idea how much a dealer might charge to reset your service light ?

Re: R1200RT Autotrader

At 54k the bike is only just run in. People worry way too much about higher millage bikes. As long as it has a full service history and not falling apart, it is worth buying. Just look at some of the mileage Americans ride their bikes I totally agree. The bike was immaculate and fully serviced. Jus...

Re: R1200RT Autotrader

Dealer told me it was due to high mileage and he would not keep it in his showroom.
