Big CC Racing in the UK will put it back and then some with their Z900RS TurboThat Z engine (948cc tuned for torque more than top end, though that could be added back) was unbelievably smooth.
I don't even know what the topic was 😁, but hubby had a FJR and like you said Dave, loved the power but it fried his nuts.Very interesting. I have a 2018 R12GS Rallye Sport with the 20mm higher (same as GSA) suspension. Three years and a broken arthritic hip later I could really use it lower. I'll visit the BMW dealer and see if that's something they, or the local suspension shop, might address. And yes, I know lowering a Rallye Sport is sacrilege, but if I do I'll save the stock suspension for the next owner. Thanks!
To stay slightly on topic, I much prefer the boxer to the inline four. I've never ridden a S1000XR, but I owned an FJR1300 a few years ago and the power was worthy of great respect but unfortunately I could not bond with the bike in any other way. Different strokes . . .
Cheers! 'Boxer' Dave
The sargent low seat did not work for me.Theresa, you could try something like a Sargent low seat in the low position. That's how I have my GS set up right now and I can pretty much flat foot the tall beast at 5'9" w/ 30" inseam. Unfortunately it cramps my legs when they're up on the pegs, which I suppose a peg lowering kit could help.
Seems like once we get the bike set up perfectly, we get tired of it and move on to the next one. First world problems, like two cylinders vs. four (to stay ever so precariously on topic).
We asked that question Panzermann, and they said it will work. Hubby has it all figured out. We are waiting for the stock shovk we ordered to come in so we can ship it to Jersey. That way, I can still ride the bike in the interim, and if I ever sell, can give new owner both.The ESA suspension level sensor may need adjustment too (or not …). I don’t know whether it simply measures change in position or whether there’s an absolute position aspect to it.
In case anyone was interested, the name of the company that will lower the shock 30mm, is Wilbers. FYI - they take the ESA sensor off your shock and put it on their shock, and send both back to the user.We asked that question Panzermann, and they said it will work. Hubby has it all figured out.
