loss of electrical power when turning handlebars lock to lock

my fairly old but formerly holding up splendidly 2001 R1150GS with 100K miles is exhibiting an electrical gremlin. I hope someone here who lives and breathes wiring harnesses will have an aha! moment...

Wow... This is why I'll never sell my bike, even if I eventually purchase another. At 100K miles, I only now just replaced the stock shocks with aftermarket items. Never touched any of the rest of...

Man, if it were the original shock, no problem. But its the new Ohlins so destroying the swingarm and buying a used one to replace it would be more economical.

Cry sheared bolt in lower rear shock mount

My joy at installing my new Ohlins rear suspension on my 2001 R1150GS after 100K on the stock shock turned to horror when the lower mounting bolt for the shock sheared off right while installing...

Thanks for the reply's.

I'd say about 75% or more freeway miles. But many 10K's miles "sport" riding in the twisties around the SF Bay Area and beyond. I guess I do a lot of compression...

1150GS @ 100K and still on original front brake pads

This can't be right.
My front brake pads have never really worn down. They are nowhere close to being worn enough to replace.
I rarely use the rear brake, and do 95% or more braking with the...

I've put all 60K on the bike and never missed a shift :D , so I'll discount technique. No equipment change in the last 2 years, either. Hmmm, I'll modify my shift as proposed by Anton and see what...

R1150GS - no shift between 2nd and 3rd

I have a 2001 R1150GS with 60,000 miles. I've never had transmission problems with the bike. In the last few weeks, when shifting between 2nd and 3rd, there is no resistance on the shift lever, and...

Re: reliable yes, flawless, not always

Yeah! Yeah! This is undoubtedly the same $50 case I used for 2 years on my KLR650. I sold it with the bike when I bought my GS because my GS has the BMW topcase. I wish I had kept the JC Whitney...

So... $900 for the tank + $300 for painting... The setup would look pretty slick, and I'd have, what, 8 1/2 gallons?

For $1100-ish I can buy the Touratech 41L tank. Skip painting it. Wouldn't...

What size fasteners on 1150GS windscreen

I want to replace the torx-head fasteners that should be on the windscreen (I don't currently have a windscreen, so I can't check the size myself). Does anyone know the metric size fasteners needed?
