Oh really Japan wont get in? I wonder why though? I would like to get active suspension for touring. I`ll have to do shaken next march so I am still thinking what to do. I might just keep it though because its really nice and easy to ride.
Was talking to the dealer and it looks like Japan won't get any of the 2015 allotment...
Anyway not convinced about the active suspension for track use, so probably won't get one if I comes with that suspension.
I'm pretty interested in what Yamaha will be bringing out for next year. Looks like they're going to have a whole new bike.
If neither option looks good I may get my current bike's engine overhauled and keep it for a while longer.
thanks, I cancelled the ride because it looks like rain in the alps. I installed the filter. The OEM wasn't so dirty at all its made of some cheap paper though. I kept it just in case. By the way, will you upgrade to the newer s1000rr for 2015? I heard it will have the specs like the HP4
Won't make it out for a ride this weekend, by thanks for the invite!
Depends on how bad your old filter is blocked you might feel the difference ok. Most likely you'd feel it up in the top end, and large throttle openings.
Personally I'd change it after the touring ride :-)
Cool thanks for the info . I have a 1600 ride with some guys from gaijin riders this weekend. I know you only do track days so maybe it's not your thing lol but thanks again for all the info .
By the way, do you think I should change the filter before my touring ride ? Do you feel the difference when the filter is changed ?
Hi there. How are you? Glad to hear you're getting lots of riding in!
That's funny, I just bought a liter last week too but haven't put it in yet. At 17k you probably need to replace it ok.
I took the old one out to have a look at it previously, and it's really easy. You can do it with the tools in the kit. Just need to take the tank cover off, then take the screw out that holds the ecu in place. Lift that up and you'll be able to see the whole front of the air box.
If I remember right you need to loosen one screw on the airbox and then the front will come off, and you can unclamp the old air filter.
The trick is to get the filter and front of the air box nice and snugly positioned back in place after replacement.
Going to be at Fuji on the 23rd to take part in the time trials that day
hey man hows it going? Have you ever changed your air filter before?. Since I am not planning on paying BMW a bag of money to do stuff I can do myself I bought a BMC race air filter and was thinking about popping it in. I`m already 17,000km`s on the meter so how do you think?
