Zerk, the pre '07 rt's brake flush is a little complicated but I've seen it done at wrenching get togethers. It's doable.

How often does the alternator belt need to be changed?

Every 36k is recommended, but YMMV.

Bar Risers Install, 2003 R1150RT

I ordered a set of these Moto-Techniques Bar Risers for my 2003 R1150RT from A&S BMW - $79.92 shipped -

http://www.ascycles.com/detail.aspx?ID=1596

These are really nice risers and very easy to install.

Here are the risers in the bag. They are clear anodized aluminum and come with stainless steel cap screws -



Here are the bars before installation -



You simply remove the bar from the tree and install the riser with the original cap screws -



then install the bar to the riser with the included screws - (I used some blue locktite)



Here is a comparison shot -



And the stock photo of both risers installed (from the A&S website - I forgot to take this pic)



I could only do a brief ride with the risers installed, but I could easily feel a more relaxed riding position. I'll report back after I get a few miles on them -

After work today, geared up, went out to the bike. Bike cranked and cranked and finally was able to coax it to start. Just went out to go to the local drive in for bike night, and now it cranks and doesn't even try to fire.

Have to check for spark and fuel. Anything go bad on a regular basis I should check first?

It's a 2003 r 1150rt, btw.

Thanks in advance.
