Also, I'm using this stuff to replace the deteriorating loom insulation...works great.

Thanks for the tip. I read the beemer boneyard spiel. Wooden shims?????? I obviously have a lot to learn about bleeding ABS systems.

Which reminds me about another point of difference between the BCR and the 1150rt. The brakes are stupidly sensitive on the 1150 and reasonable on the BCR. I gather they both have linked systems.

That insulation looks pretty good. I was going to go old school and use cloth tape. I'm amazed by how bad the earlier insulation is. I thought I knew of all this model's issues but obviously not.
I'm loving the BCR. It has reinvigorated my love of the R1100s. When I first rode this bike 6 years ago it handled like a pig. It was so bad I posted a thread here asking for help. I thought it was a siezed steering damper. Turns out it was just crap tyres. It's amazing what you get used to. My mate thought it handled well.....
