4) Do you have any images of the chin fairing trimmed and painted prior to installation?

5) If you were to perform this modification again from the beginning is there anything you might do differently?
1) because, for track use it has to be closed (as in : oil spilling on the track, etc.)

2) mine was too.

3) yep.

4) no, can't help you with that.

5) no, don't think so.

...oh..., and don't forget to drill a hole for the oil glass behind the belly pan...









...on the other side, I 'cut a hole' made out of black adhesive vinyl...

RoLoo -

Thanks for the prompt responses. I may end up emulating your bike by adding a few labels to break up the real estate.

Ride safely -

Thank you RooLoo. Absolutely stunning bike you got there. Best 1200S I have ever seen. Almost makes me want one. OK, I admit it - I want one!!

Got my HPE exhaust pieces back from the ceramic coating applicator today. SS tubes for the R1200S in titanium finish to enhance thermal performance, match the Akrapovich muffler and improve the overall aesthetics of the R1200S.





Still waiting for new exhaust manifold gaskets to arrive from BMW of Chattanooga. It is going to be difficult to wait and not rush to assemble everything.

Guess there is a positive side to having the flu and feeling a little under the weather, I will be less apt to wrench in the hot garage and wait for the gaskets.

I had been told previously that the copper crush manifold gaskets were one time use, meaning that they deformed upon assembly to match the port and flange of the head pipe.

Upon disassembling my bike I noticed a lot of carbon outside the used gasket. I assumed that the PO did not replace them when he installed the Remus headers and that there may have been an exhaust leak.

Did you remove your gaskets? I figured that since the HPE system comes with stub outs that get fastened under the flange I should replace the gasket this one time and be done with it. As you know the pipes can then slide on an off by releasing the springs.

It has been raining a lot and I still feel like crap so it is no problem to wait. If I start feeling better and the gaskets are not here by next weekend I may go ahead and button her up.

I still need to cut the hole for my oil sight glass in the chin fairing. Did you use a uni-bit? I have not machined many carbon parts and since I don't have immediate plans to paint I want to make the cleanest hole possible.

I dropped the forward fairing bracket off to be powder coated in satin black so that it would not standout so much.

Just clean the whole stuff, and you can simply bolt on those flanges without the need for a gasket.



And regarding the oil sight hole, I didn't use a uni-bit, but this :





Works great.
