    Thank you for the information.
    I'll check it out. I'm sure the same applies for Arrow exhausts as well

    Hello,
    I read a post you had made on a thread regarding an exhaust fitting from a 9-14 year on a 2015+.
    https://www.s1000rrforum.com/forum/b...l-exhaust.html

    You stated that an aluminum piece had to be replaced, could you tell me specifically what part? If it's the gasket seal, I think that could be done. But not sure about the part that holds the spring to the exhaust port.
    If you could provide me any details, that would be great.
    Thanks

    Chris,

    How are you and Vickie ??

    The Question,a seller on this forum has a set of 2014 cast wheels front & rear. The wheels include brake rotors,ABS rings and a set of Q3 tires with 250 miles asking $1200.
    The price I think sounds reasonable but the the wheels are located in Albany,NY.
    My concern is Shipping,do you have any idea what shipping Could Be? UPS,FedEx or whatever ??
    I'd appreciate any advice,Thanks.

    Hi skapan. Ive been told you might have both S1000R and S1000RR

    I am considering purchasing a S1000R as my naked bike. ive tried just about everything on the market and the only bikes that may be better are the Tuono and Superduke. Both are a little out of my price range given the BMW have runout prices at the moment

    I love just about everything about the S1000R but have concerns about buying one given i have and will be keeping my S1000RR. (i also have a 2014 S1000RR track bike.
    i have liked other bikes on the market but not loved them. they all have small issues that make buying the BMW more sense

    so my questions would be do you find you ride one and not the other. Do you ride the R and then feel odd jumping on the RR or vice versa?
    Do you have any regrets having bought them both. Do you feel you dont need the two of them. what was your reasons for having both.

    I feel i am essentially buying the same bike twice.

    Anything else you can advise, im open to listening.

    The track pipe is strong buddy!
    Started the season running 2:10 + at Autobahn South - this weekend my best was 1:44:87!
    I rode Grattan a couple of weeks back and must say that it's a very technical course. Scared the bejeezus out of me for the first couple of sessions. Unfortunately, we were completely rained out on Sunday. I'm not sure that even with rain tires, I'd ride that course in the wet.

    Anyway, hope all is well. 6 more track days booked (which will make it 20 for my first season). Hopefully, I'll get to meet you at Grattan next year.

    Dude!

    After carefully considering your advice, I cut a deal on the one at the dealer in Detroit. Contrary to my earlier info, it does have stock exhaust. And is only has 3600 miles and just was serviced. So I made a decent deal and Dennis will deliver it to me here the next time he drives down.

    Thanks a bunch for your advice. It really made the decision easy.

    The "other" dude!
