    Hi all, just wondering if anyone have installed "Krista" lights on a 1150RT. I'm considering putting them on mine but don't know if a kit is offered. They are relatively common on 1200RT's.

    Cheers, C

    Went back to my local dealer for a demo on the Trophy, but ... they have decided not to allow demos on the bike until they get more of them. :huh

    Another dealer in town says their demo is in transit and should be there in 2-3 weeks. Will post impressions when I get to ride one.

    I'm designing a tank bag for my R1100RS and trying to get some ideas. So far the requirements I have come up with are a compartment for a spare face sheild. Electric connector to charge phone run GPS and to plug in homemade heated clothing, etc. Outside pockets to be able to snack on the go.Easy and secure mounting. Waterproof without a cover. Currently I'm using a modified Suzuki bag that the sun has eat up that works pretty well for 30 bucks off the bargin table. Would like to hear your wish to get this thing made for the new year. Got a shop full of sewing machines and parachute materials to get er done.

    Ive used the Touratech Flat bag on two of my RTs and also on my GTL. Great bag, well made, and tough.

    I like my touratech but be careful as it is made kinda thin. Mine already has a hole from a pen in the bottom corner

    I purchased the fill in seat section off an 06 RT-P & i`m trying to figure out where the back mount slide pin bolts too. I`m fitting this onto my 2010 R1200RT non P & noticed also that the shock adjuster knob seems to be in the way also. Does anyone have a good pic of the mounting of this setup . I`m going this route , so i can run a fuel cell where the back seat would go & the filler is just perfect.

    I also noticed on the bottom front of the fill in section , that it has a spring clip setup that slips onto something below the riders seat (need pics of that also). This way i can order the parts from Bobs BMW.

    Yes i posted this on MOA but no answer (lots of lookers)

    Thanks

    I am having trouble with the abs brakes on my 2006 RT. When I turn on the key, what I assume to be a servo starts up, but doesn't shut off. When I apply front brake the servo works harder. When I spin the rear wheel and use the front brake nothing happens. When I apply rear brake the wheel will stop. I did a full brake flush and pad change over the summer when I did a full service, thanks (JVB). Have ridden 3000 miles since with no problem. I have found lots of info about ABS problem with the R1200 series, but could find nothing with the problem of a servo that keeps running. Micro switches seem to be working as the brake lights come on while applying each brake. I cleaned the speed sensors and checked the wiring. I have 33000 miles on the bike.

    Keep searching. I distinctly remember a problem like that discussed in one of the threads, but cannot recall the solution. It's somewhere here.

    Also, post a separate question in G-Spot: there is a lot of inmates with good R-bike knowledge, who do not deign to visit us Road Warriors. :cry

    That's a good find. I'll try to remember.

    In the past when I've seen this, it was caused by the rear brake pedal not being able to fully return to disengaged. Suggest checking to be sure the rear brake pedal is working properly.

    I had a similar problem with my 2005 R12GS, turned out to be a switch in the hand break was bad. I sold the bike a couple years ago and I don't have my paperwork to see what it was now.
