R1100SA (now R1150S)
ABS; system bags; various tank bags; Speed Bag
2nd owner, bought it with 5600 original miles on it. 1999 SA, original trans; 2004 BCR engine put in 2011, now R1150R in 2013.
flashing brake light (clear lens); clear turn signals; taller/adjustable windshield; rear subframe powdered coated candy apple red. Carbon fiber rear fender. Homemade fender eliminator that puts license plate up close to muffler. Saddle bags with city lids. Buzzz gear indicator upgrade (nice). GPS mount.
R1100S ('04 dual spark engine) - dropped a valve at a track day (my fault), so upgraded to dual spark and did a bunch of maintenance while apart (i.e. clutch, diff pivot bearings to bushing conversion, boots, o-rings, etc.). Did an ill advised bandaid to chain guide then grenaded top end (yes, again), put '04 R1150R engine in this time.
hmmm...Speigler brake lines, HH brake pads, Braking Rotors all around. Other upgrades covered elsewhere.

Engine / Under the Hood
SJBMW coil (it needed a lot of help to fit); Nology ignition wires (I can tell a difference); Remus exhaust. Schrick 292 cams (312 cams?). lightened lifter buckets and rocker arms, BMC air filter, K1200RS fuel regulator, dyno'd at 94 RWHP with almost perfect air/fuel ratio on Robert Foster chip. Homemade oil pressure shim. SJBMW intake snorkel and inlet, not filter (BMC filter).
Wilbers, rear has preloader with higher rate spring to deal with the old lady (6mm longer than stock), front Wilbers (emulsion).
Wheels and Tires
Black powder coated wheels. Running pilots pro on front and M3 Sportecs on rear presently. Otherwise really like Q2/3s or Metzler M3s.
