BMW Roundel Newbie

Just signed up to the forum. Thought I'd say hi and get acquainted with the s guys. Have a few BMW bikes and just added a 2005 BCR. In the process of updating it. So far Galfer Rotors N Pads, Spiegler SS brake line, Continental Sport Attack tires. Ohlins shocks haven't arrived yet and either has the Sargent seat, should be in the next couple weeks. Went out for a 185 mile ride yesterday in the mountains where I live. Fun bike to ride.

That looks like it sits much taller than my 2001...is the paralever arm back there adjustable? Is it shorter than (my bike's) stock, causing the rear drive to be rotated more down & forward?

The last of the S’s were tall but steered slow, with the adjustable arm(I have) steering can be speeded up considerably as clearly by the angle of the rear bevel.

Yes it has the adjustable (Sport) arm. It can be adjusted 15mm in or out which can raise and lower the bike.

Nice, apart from adding Wilbers, kept mine stock.

No doubt you have trawled the site for info, but in short Lennie Induct,San Jose filter,Power Commander,Fuel injector upgrade you’ll be amazed what a step forward can be made with these old bikes.

Oh and some aftermarket wheels if at all possible.

Things I'm doing for now:
Brake Rotors F&R, Galfer Wave, old one were warped. Done
HH Sintered Ceramic pads to mach new Rotors, Galfer recommended. Done
Spiegler SS brake lines F&R. Done
Ohlins Shocks F&R custom built. Showa's are worn out.
Sargent seat, ordered labor day special promo. Stock seat only good for about 60 miles.
Hugger rear fender, Ilmberger, to protect the new Ohlins.
Other than these items it will stay fairly stock for now. I have the original belly pan also, first owner took it off for safe keeping along with the rear seat cover.

Ironically I took my Ohlins off the front I was never happy withit, being wise with hindsight.... what I should have done is have it shortened and stiff end up.

Where thing get confusing have a look at all the suspension options over the years the relationship between front and rear shocks have always been the same ie slow steering, it’s just some bikes are a lot taller for cylinder clearance.

You can raise the rear so far with the adjustable para arm but go too far and it will soon let you know and then the options are....even taller at the back or lower at the front.

I've tried different shocks on my other BMW's and found the Ohlins worked out best for me. Seems like they have better feel than anything else. Like the adjustable Damper where it belongs on the front as well as the remote reservoirs on the S.

My wife would agree with you cuz we run two bikes with Ohlins and the K Sport and X/R with Wilbers and shes’s always telling me the Ohlins is better.

Looks like you knew just what to buy to start. So Ohlins are still readily available for the bike?

No, Ohlins per say aren't available anymore from Ohlins and they will not make them again. All the parts are available for both front and back from Ohlins. I found an ex Ohlins technician to custom make them, he had made them before for Ohlins when working for them and is very familiar with the S bikes. I should add it is a pricey way do get them.

Is it even possible to buy Lennie Induct and the SJ filter two of the major pieces of the puzzle in getting the 1100s too a much higher level.

Did a quick search on the Induction system and it looks like NLA. Probably not something I need right now anyway as I've been spending a lot so far to get this bike where I want it. Any leads on the rear inner fender, looking for an Ilmberger. Found a couple on E-bay but they charge a lot for freight from Europe.
