Ekiserre,

 Yes, If you switch between the two ESA Pro Suspension settings- MIN & AUTO the Gen 2 XR will adjust in height based upon the weight that is on the bike. MIN drops the bike to its lowest height. The difference can be as much as 40 mm. Here is link that may be of assistance: https://www.s1000rrforum.com/threads/lowering-a-gen-2-xr-with-hyperpro-rear-shock-spring-20-mm.249483/#post-2446943.

Best,

Doc :084:

With the bike being between 9 and 4 years old - yes, all questions have probably been discussed extensively.

Most popular would be:

Bar-end weights
Cam chain tensioner
Aftermarket screen
Tyres
side stand length
Aftermarket luggage
Tank range
Exhaust cans

Ha ha!  :028:


It’s like you read my mind lol  :763:

Thankfully my knee joints don't mind the HP rearsets even when adjusted as high/back as possible (Mk1 XR)

I have to say - I prefer the positioning which seems more 'in control' if that makes sense.

I can understand BMW not making the M-SX a complete do-it-all - as they want to make it more 'exclusively-sporty', but there will be companies who may produce luggage to suit.

Hi all,

I’m Steve, living in the north east and about to pick up a gen 1 xr later this week!
I’m guessing the majority of my questions will be found using the search function but I’m sure I’ll still ask the occasional annoying question!
Looking forward to being part of the forum  :018:

Only negatives from the reviewer:
- There is only a soft luggage option from the factory. 
- There seems to be less leg room than on the standard although the comp package pegs look to be adjustable
- The factory fit tyres / tires are sport oriented resulting in reduced grip in the cold and wet ...

Hello good!

 Do you notice a difference if you change the suspension height from AUTO to MIN?  Engine started and motorcycle stopped, without moving...

 I don't notice any difference whether it goes up or down a bit and I don't know if it should...

 thank you and greetings.

Thanks chaps for the advice, noted.

I only got them just as a deterrent, if they want it, they will get it no matter what, just not to make it an easy target, the bike cover is a good idea.

I might invest in one of those trackers that don't cost a fortune/subscription like Monimoto or Sizzapp for added piece of mind.

Thanks

The mounting plate on the rack of the new 2024 model XR on display looks the same as the previous K69. You should be ok :001:
