Hi everyone

Hi everyone.

Just changed my old GSX-R 750 K5 to S1000RR 2014.
I love this brakes (especially with race pads when they are hot) and this power. But still searching for good suspension settings. And need to spend some time and money to adjust new bike for me. Some rearsets, stomp grip.

What I do not like is gear box. Sometimes up shifting works with delay. And yesterday had 3 issues while down shifting from 3 to 2 on the track. Terrible crack sounds and blank gear indicator. I should be very firm on shifting. And this annoying me, as my GSX-R never had this problems.

The BMW is one of the smoothest gearboxes made. Period. If it is that bad then take it to the dealer and have them look at it.

Hi Pirks. Welcome to the forum.

I would disagree. It has it's issues. Always has. On the whole I don't find it to be too bad but it does have issues across all years.

@Pirks , Hello and congrats on the new BMW, I ride the same '14. I used to have the same issue when it would go into neutral and sometimes it won't quick shift above 9000+ Rpm. I just took it to the dealers and they said they changed some sensor or IDK what but since then its as smooth as butter. Since you have '14 I assume its still under warranty so get it checked with your dealer.

Best of luck and enjoy your bike

Thanks for welcome words.

Unfortunately my warranty is over few days ago.
Just had a talk with the dealer. He assumed that maybe I was pushing not firm enough. It can be, as I was on track, hard on brakes. I could make mistake. The other thing to change is oil. Now it is some Shell, as it was changed at dealer. He proposed to use Motul 300V. I always run Motul 7200 for my GSX-R and had no problems.

AE-S1KRR, I have a little question for you, if you have stock fork.

I just have fork serviced by warranty and have noticed that rebound adjuster (clicker on the top) have a small play. I can push it down easily by my finger for 1 mm. Then if I push fork up and down or just have a ride, it goes up.
So this is ok, is it the same on your bike, or it was put together in wrong way?

@Pirks, Not sure if play on preload adjusters are normal or not, but it doesn't really sounds normal. I work off-shore and will be back only on 10th and that's when I can check my bike and reply to your question. I'm sure others around will have an answer too, if not then I can get back to you by 10th

@AE-S1KRR, Thanks for quick response.

Question for other members who have S1000RR 2012-2014 with stock fork. Do you have any free play of rebound adjuster? Detailed description is above.

Thanks for your response.
Just to make sure we are talking about same thing.
Rebound adjuster (marked on the image). You can only rotate it. You can't push it down even after few compressions of the fork or after a ride?
