Is yours an ESA bike?   What have you done at the front - fork inserts?

Ha ha  :001: thanks for bursting my bubble as you suspect with your question as always put a good shock in the rear and it shows how crap the front is,i’ll Have to do something probably go for a complete internal replacement kit which will mean living on beans on toast for the next 6 months looking at cost.

Non ESA was always the plan.

While it’s doubtful many If any will tread this route the remote preload is custom the stock offering is on a long pipe that fits on the right side and I didn’t want that so it’s involved some tinkering.

Anyone in it for the long haul not a smidgen of grease anywhere on the linkage system  :110:

Not surprising, tempted to as the dealer to strip and grease as part of pre prep of a new bike.
By the way, are the same "winger" that was on Boxertrix I think forum?

No boxers in my garage.I test rode a couple of new ones recently, nice engine but not for me right now. Ive had my S1000r for 3.5 years, and still love the engine.it'swhy the XR is calling me I think.
Currently riding F800gt in Massif Central, France Well LeMans right now but MC tomorrow.
Second attempt, first in july failed day one when bigends spat  the shells out at 24000 miles, just after service oddly.New motor currently has 1000 miles on and hoping it'll be as good when I get back so I can chop in both for XR if the part ex works out number wise.

Following on from your recent post, I thought I'd have a go greasing the linkage system on my XR last weekend, but the dealer didn't have new bolts and nuts  :110:  Now on back order.

Did you have any trouble getting them? Also quite pricey I thought.......
