What is the best way to secure the exhaust flap? Gen 2 btw

Gen 2 here too. I secured mine with a metal zip tie, but you can do it with just a piece of wire. There are stoppers where the flap stops at fully open position, so you just fix the flap to one of those stoppers and job done

Just to add that it would be wise to additionaly secure the exhaust flap when you remove the cables.

Gen-1 or Gen-2..?? You don't say which you have.??

Either way, the exhaust valve is spring loaded open by default, If you just remove the cables, it will always be open. Most just remove the servo & cable assembly and plug in a servo-buddy, otherwise you'll get a fault light and/or code. The servo has "start and stop points which are setup when the bike is built at the factory and are held in the ECU memory, if the cables aren't connected, the servo goes past the start/stop points and throws an error, likewise if you just remove the servo without plugging in a servo buddy, it throws up a fault because it can't find the servo. The servo buddy eleminates this issue.

If a servo buddy is not used, the Gen-1 will not throw a light but will throw a soft fault code when interrogated with a scanner like Motoscan or GS-911. I believe the Gen-2 may throw a fault light and a code.

I have Gen 2. So if I leave the servo motor and cables in place, still connected to the valve. The only thing I would do is plugging in the servo buddy all should be fine? I would like to revert the mod when going in for a service. Would be ideal if I can just plug the servo in again without having to faff around with the cables every time.

You don't feel the SXR could use even just s smidge more grunt lower down?  I think that's what the MXR is about with the shift cam you get best of both worlds.

So you got a new 2024 SXR delivered already?  I was told they're not coming until mid to late April!

Although it is spring loaded, the exhaust flow at high rpm’s can overcome the spring tension and make the flap suddenly close. It happened to some people

I have watched the 44t review...

I got my XR this week and i cant see why you would need another 40hp! The stock XR  has plenty of power for the road anyway  :005:.... I also have full luggage and that centre stand we all love for chain cleaning! :028:

I’ve just ordered the servo buddy from Healtech. I see on youtube that people either disconnect the cables that operate the exhaust valve or remove the whole servo motor altogether. Is that actually necessary though? Is the exhaust valve spring loaded to stay open by default or is it the other way around? In other words, will the exhaust flap always be open just by plugging in the servo buddy?

Just watched the 44 Teeth review by any chance?

I'm with you.

Currently got a Multi V4 Pikes Peak and while it is an amazing machine there's a few things that niggle me about it.

I cancelled my MXR order (because of the centre stand and luggage) and now have a new SXR coming in April instead.

Although looking closely at the MXR in the video I'm still not convinced it won't be possible to mount a centre stand and maybe even swap over the bits on the rear end from the SXR so that luggage can be mounted.  Probably a mega faff though to be honest.  When I get to see one in the flesh and compare it side-by-side against an SXR I'll get a better idea and maybe think about doing that for 2025...

Centre stand on the M  :431: NO! Full competition pack is a must though... The centre and hand guards aren't listed as an option on the online configurator....

I want to pre order a M however it cant carry proper luggage there is only some naff soft pannier options and I tour at least twice a  year ... :062:

Do I want a 200bhp bike... yes  :007: .. do i need it no... Time to Ponder :084:

New Member Introductions / Hi from Serbia

Hi everyone, greetings from Belgrade!

I'm Alex, 28 years old and I ride a white '16 BMW S1000XR.

The bike is currently stock in terms of power, but I do have quite a lot of mods done to it for that personal touch  :002:




Bike has 74kkm on the clock and is mostly ready for the season. New engine oil (IPONE Katana 10W40), new front brake pads (Brembo Sintered), new rear brake pads (TRW Sintered), new front sprocket (JT Sprocket) fully polished and ceramic coated.The only things that remain to be fixed/changed are brake fluid, antifreeze and a rear tire (currently Metzeler Roadtec 01 SE's). That's about it  :002:
I mostly joined to read other people's experiences and perhaps learn something new, if you have any questions feel free to ask!
