For me I had very little wind noise with the sport screen or without a screen. The Trophy fairing is also very quite, no real wind noise. On the other hand the OEM touring screen was terribly loud for me. I'm 5'9", so your mileage may vary.

Carbon Fiber rear hugger. Was a must for me. Improves the looks too. Mine is an Ilmberger.

Hope I can change the subject for a bit...unknown part

Hya, I was messing with the canister solenoid on my 2004 R, and when I cut the ziptie holding the electrical plug to the frame, a part came loose under the frame and hung down. I'd never noticed it before, but it seems to go back up under the middle of the engine, and I can't see where it terminates. It has a bolt in the end of it, and a rubber housing around it, have no idea what it is, hopefully someone can tell me. I know I can just ziptie it back under the frame where it was tucked, but it has to be something...possibly for ABS, which is not on my bike? Thanks.

You can convert it to a bleed port with a bleeder screw. The way it is shown now is actually a factory fill port for the Hydraulic clutch. I converted mine and replace the clutch fluid using this bleed screw. If you're able to trace it back, you'll see it connected to the clutch slave cylinder on the aft end of the transmission.

I'm going to look at an 11' R1200R Classic this weekend!
As far as I know, the only difference with the classic is the spoke wheels and chrome pieces, is there anything else?

Also, is there anything in particular with these bikes I should check on before forking over the cash?

Enjoy the bike, the biggest complaint I have is tires wear out. :)

One sweet bike, no problems. 7500 miles so far. It still keeps running better. Silent easy shifting transmission. Great torque. awesome brakes.

Just don't go for a test drive :) Or bring your checkbook.

David

People ask me what is so great about a BMW I always ask Have you ridden one?

I won't go into too much detail, but I picked up a 2011 last week. I've put 500 miles on it and it is great. The power is seamless - in other words you don't need to worry about rpms.

Nothing to look for unusual. Just make sure the services have been done. Get Jim Vs video on maintenance and you'll save a ton doing the work yourself. Not hard at all. Loved my Ducati, but I couldn't do much of the work myself. The R is perfect for that.

Can't comment on the differences in the Classic vs. non-Classic.

The differences between the standard and classic are:

Wheels

Paint

Chrome

Frame color

Engine color

and because the classic has wire wheels it uses tubes and does not offer the tire pressure monitor TPM.

Ugh, and here I thought the classic's spoked wheels take normal tubeless tires. I guess they do, only I didn't know it still required a tube on the inside. My excitement has dropped, a little.
