Thank you brittrunyon sir.

Two more questions for the pundits please and thank you (the HPN instructions I received are in German):

(1) Anyone have some baseline R+C clicker settings they would care to share to help get me started? I'm 180lbs riding mostly pavement and logging roads - no big jumps or singletrack for this steed.

(2) What is the torque value to tighten the fork caps? The bmw manual states 107 NM, but the highest value I could find in the German HPN instructions on the page where it appeared to be discussing this part of the install was 20 NM. I think the new caps are aluminum while the old ones are maybe steel so perhaps this makes sense.

Happy Saturday!
R100GS for going far, FZ1 for going fast, TE250 for getting dirty, and DR650 for when one of the others needs work
