Thanks for the info. Less than the TT, so I will probably go this route.
Is it possible to remove the police trunk and add a pillion seat and conventional trunk without much difficulty?
I haven't really had a chance to have a close look at a police bike.
most riders I talk to want the exact opposite. why I have no idea...
there must be some advantage to the trunk
No mate. Spent some cash on the VFR instead. Helibars have made one hell of a difference. Still holding out for a go on the new K16GT though..
Yeah - I hear ya'. I've test ridden the VFR a couple of times and the low bars just won't work for me - especially in the stop and go traffic I deal with in my daily commute. In my perfect world, Honda would announce the VFR-ST to compete with the K16 but I'm not holding my breath. On the other hand, BMW doesn't have a stellar reputation for first year model releases so Honda has a little bit of time to make something happen.
It's possible, but I'm not sure of the degree of difficulty. PM Bradatlarge for details. He converted his RT P to civilian duty.
I can't imagine why? The whole reason I am getting an RT is so that I can bring my sweetie with me and an RT sounds like the perfect choice.
There is a kit. It's a bit expensive though.
Here's a PDF version of the Police R1150RT brochure -
I ve found lowering the RT gives me more confidence in cornering.
If you would like to try, or just like to flat foot at stops, see this:
I'd like to lower my RT like that. But, even if they had a kit for it, I just shot my Xmas money on a Sargent seat for the Dakar. So many toys, so little money.
anyone have the 1200 version?
Time to bump this thread.
UPS just dropped off two boxes for me. One's from Beemer Boneyard, one's from Max. Looks like I'm gonna have a busy weekend.
And here's this afternoons progress. I know, lame. More tomorrow. And I'll break out the better camera so the pics are clearer. Also, Max threw in all the detailing stuff seen at the right rear (top pic) for spending $300 or more.
I know, messy garage. Should have seen it before I made room.
Any tips for removing the air box?
That's not complete. Strangely.
You also need #9 from this fische page and its corresponding bit on the other side.
I bought "recylced" bits but, wouldn't go that route a second time as painting them from Red and Silver to White pushed the prices beyond the OEM bits pre-painted in Alpine White.
If you're asking about the conversion, its even more fiddly and expensive to do that the 1150, based on my conversations with the kids at Brown Motorworks and at BMW of Long Beach....with the vertically oriented side cases and special mounting, I wasn't sure that it was even possible.
Here's the 1200 RT-P brochure.
Next project. Paint that garage!
Why are you removing the airbox? You should be able to get at the slave from the rear of the bike - the Tech at Brown Motorworks did my GS-ADV without even removing the rear shock, shockingly.
+1 same reason I'm getting one, my one and only will be much happier on the RT than the other bike's - supposed to be delivered today or tomorrow but no news yet so I guess I'll have to wait till next week
The RT is and AWESOME two up bike = she Loves it !
ENJOY your new RT
