      Hi Wayne

      I need your expertise. I am going to do my 10,000 kms service next week and I would like to know the torque value of the engine drain plug and the rear drive drain and filler plugs.
      Thanks a lot

      I was hoping that you had posted something on putting "R bars" onto a RS. I cannot find (ANYWHERE!)information about the 2016 R1200R handlebar rise and sweep! I was contemplating using an aftermarket "fat" (1-1/8") bar with a couple of shop made clamp shims to correct. The difficult part is determining which bar resembles the stock R closest! Any info here? Much appreciated in advance! R.

        Would you like some specific photos?

        My RS has the R triple clamp, bar and risers along with longer lines. This was done by the previous owner that did a bunch attempting to make her fit him, but with only a few miles ended up with a KTM 1290 Super Adventure. Did you or can you take an R for a spin to compare?

      Presently laid up (not riding) due to accident in July 2016. Expect to be riding in November! :)

      Hey Grump - Take a look at my post under General Discussions forum. Short Riders Solution. This solution came about after our conversation, research, measuring and a bunch of mechanical/machining. Ron
