Thanks, one of the reasons it looks so good are your lights. '-)

On farkles and mods, you should see my BMW R1150S Project Bike, I got carried away on quite a few things for a boxer bike and still not done. It's a lot lighter, has more power and handles a lot more like a Jap bike than a Beemer boxer now. Hard to believe but true. You just have to trust the front end, it's hard to feel it. Last time I lost the front I saw it, didn't feel it but that's a longer story that could have ended well if I had just stayed on the track...

For me, I'm going to screw with a bike anyway, so some of the Hyper's warts aren't so bad for me or I would have gone elsewhere. 2 things still nagging me on it: 1) clutch, which I believe you're going help me with and 2) it's weird about using the alarm and recognizing neutral after turning if off, I find I have to pull the clutch in for it to work. Odd and slightly annoying but not a deal breaker.

Now if I could just get a MTS 1200 motor in there...radiator and exhaust are the biggest problem...probably solvable... :-)

Thanx, they're working out well. So far I'm happy with them. Seem like a right size bag for the bike and the monokey mounts mean it will be easy to use on other bikes. Thinks about building an R1150R touring bike they could also go on. They're the Givi Dolomiti 30L bags.

One of the instructors suggests I remove the gas cap (vapor lock?). I'm doubtful and then I go to remove it and the suction on cap has a death grip on it. Get it off and hear all this gurgling. Something is not right with the vent. By now I've already called for a tow. Half hour later he arrives (that was quick) and my gas tank has stopped gurgling. So what the hell, let's see if she'll start. It's rough but it starts, clears out and idles fine. $60 later for showing for the tow, I'm riding home skipping the tow.

Now I'm on this forum looking for why and it was here. Carbon canister is now off. Thank you, everything pretty much worked as you said it would. I just added some clamps and ty-wraps to keep the vent/drain line from moving around and tight to stuff. Time for my first service. Sorry for the dark pic, I was up late in my garage watching MotoGP while doing this, so the lighting sucks (also rotated 90 degrees).

Was your bike new? You should have roadside assistance with your warranty, assuming you bought a new one or its less than 2 years old.

I did not know roadside was a thing as well. Good to know, my 'tard is still under warranty for a bit longer.

Bike was brand new, maybe 500 miles on her.

Road side assistance with dealer was more a notion than a reality. Never received my reimbursement either.

RCS 17 is the way to go, no question. Modulation is huge compared to the stocker. Glad I went with the recommended 17 over compulsions to go with the 19, the 17 proved right sized...
