Pep, for calibration the suspension on the BCR and regular S vary only by the paralever, and shock length and valving. Those are variables that can be juggled on any bike when you're playing with shocks anyway, so I don't think you should feel you lost analyzing anything. Not a BCR slam mind you. I'm just saying that if you're changing the shock anyway, and already have a GS paralever anyway, then there's no difference. The later ones (regardless of cup vs reg) are supposed ot be about 2lb lighter in the tranny. That's the only weight difference. (unless you compare to the orignal r11s-light, which was of-course/paradoxically, the heaviest model. Go figure. Possibly done by the same crew that made the S's bag mounts wider than those of the RT. Gag.
