For whatever reason the stock battery is cooked, it was on the charger overnight and didn't even take on enough juice to light the headlight. I ordered up a new battery and will have to wait for it to arrive before I get to fire it up! Whats another week after 3 months!

shredd, 1 week off the bike and my BMW battery which was not yet dead, was dead. It had been living on the BT too long. So these OEM batteries may have lead acid, but in the end LA stinks!

It's Alive!!!!

The Shorai LFX18A1 battery arrived, and it installs very easily. The batteries include foam stick on pads so you can make it the same size as stock.



I held my breath, turned the key which gave me the reassuring TPS initialize sound and then fingered the starter button. It jumped to life in about 3 crank rotations. It rattled for about 3 seconds until the oil got where it needed to be, and the result is what you see here!




I didn't blip the throttle because the 2618 alloy pistons need to be slowly warmed up due to their hypereutectic properties. I also need to upload the new Rexxer map and hopefully I can get out this weekend and give it a good dose of its 600km new top end break in. Then I can really get down to business and see what she'll do and get a dyno run in.

For anybody interested, I will put all the needed parts, cost and contact info in one post. I was thinking about this the other day. If I started with the pistons and rods in hand I could do the whole job in 2 weeks, which includes teardown, shipment of cylinders for bore and plate and rebuild.

So far so good, rock on brothers!

Congrats Jeff!

I hope the new software load gets it done and that you have some fun soon. It has to have been tough being so patient with the piston snafu.

Can't wait to hear your ride report after she is broken in and you can put the coals to her.

Time for a beer, Jeff. Great job on the upgrade and even better documentation on the mod in this thread. I hope you'll go over to BMWSR.org and reference this feat. There a a number of international owners than post there that would like to read your successes and woes.

Jeff - Thanks for the narrative and the pics. I feel like I just got done reading some kind of classic novel - ups and downs, trials and tribulations, all with a happy ending. Really a superbe job.

Have a blast and be careful,
