Re: Canister or No Canister

Here in Oz they don't even come with the canister.. So it can't be that important.. 8)

Re: Short in tail light base receptacle?

It might not be the same but I had a similar tail light problem and it ended up being a part of the loom that was hidden under the rear seat area and the loom was so squashed and it was earthing out on the frame.

Re: dead battery - now what?

Do the instrument lights come on? .. If so I would try a bump start.

Second gear.. Clutch in.. Push bike (down hill if poss) and simultaneously drop the clutch and bounce on the seat to help prevent rear wheel lock up.. I've done this a few times without a problem.

Re: Handlebars seem off center

I think you might find that it's an illusion because the two main gauges are different sizes and it tricks your eyes into thinking something is out.. and the more you look at it the more something seem wrong.. Just a thought.

Re: increase bike height

I think the best and easiest way is to fit a slightly longer para-lever arm from the GS.

That will raise the rear slightly and should not effect steering that much.. Others here have done it before.

Re: Exhaust mod help

You just need to take the stock can/exhaust off (takes 5-10 minutes) and just ride it up to your local auto store or exhaust shop and buy an exhaust tip and clamp.. Easy peasy.. Mines been like this for almost 10 years without a problem and sounds great without being too loud.. I use the same clamp ...

Need help with LED flashers.

Last week I bought some nice looking new small LED turn indicator lights for my 02 R1150R and I put the front ones on first and they worked fine except they flashed a little fast but I was cool with that and thought once the rear was fitted it would come good.. But.. Once I fitted the rears nothing ...

Re: Removing rear windshield bracket allen head bolts

It's easy once you know how.. and have done it a few times. I changed the long standard bolts for shorter ones.. They don't need to be that long. Hope these pics help.

Re: R1150R Front Fender Replacement

I don't know the answer to your question but I'm thinking that they may have lowered the headlight to avoid that large gap between the headlight and fender if you use a normal type front fender.
