Little update for ya,

Got the bike back again, turns out this is a known problem for BMW affecting the R and XR in rare cases. (lucky me)

This problem can occur after a ride and the bike has cooled down between 60° and 70°. Somehow the heat causes the fuel pressure to be higher then normal, therefore causing the fuel injectors not to open when to starting the bike.

They replaced the fuel pump and fuel lines with i'm guessing newer updated ones since it is a known problem. And now the bike fires up with no hesitation when i try to duplicate the problem, so all is good for now.

Aaaand my fork seal had to be replaced as well because it was leaking a tiny bit... (No i'm not constantly wheelieing)

At this rate i'll have a brand new bike when it's 2020

The non start issue is indeed due to high fuel pressure. The fix is a new fuel pump and software update. Also to cover the fuel rail and underneath the tank with heat reflective fiberglass matting.

Glad you got your bike back, are you going to miss your RR now that you've had to give it back a second time?

In all honestly it didn't do that much to me driving it, and bringing it back again. Having ridden the bike for 2,5 years, i learned a lot on track and made me an overall better rider in general. But it was time to move on, and with that being said, i'm glad i tried the supersport type bike. Yeah sure having that top end rush is exciting, but i can't really use it that much on the street anyway where most of my driving happens. Plus the suspension can be a bit too hard for the roads here in Belgium. Maybe in the future when i'm older and divorced i might buy one again.

So the R fits me perfectly and i feel more comfortable driving it on track. My track times prove me this, i even jumped to a higher group.

Btw, i have a question about one of the forks they replaced the fork seal on. Me being the OCD fella spotted that the height between the rings do not properly match when comparing the two forks.

Can i untighten the bolts of the fork triple clamp and adjust it whiteout screwing up any of the alignment?

Yes, maybe better to remove the front wheel.

If you take the weight off the front wheel by using a strap to suspend the bike by the front triple then you can adjust the fork height quite easily without removing the front wheel.
