Have any of you other R1200R owners replaced you BMW cam sprockets with Lennie’s Cam Sprockets? I have and I am glad that I did. Google Lennie’s sprockets and you can find out more. I’ve just been called to dinner.

It was useless and a waste of money.

You say give up nothing - how does it compare in tread life to something like a conti road attack? (Trails don't fit)
What about cold grip?

They have more tread depth and the cold grip is excellent.

True but many traditional sport/touring tires are dual compound to reduce flattening from long slab stretches - my trail attacks (and every other 95/5 tire I've had on my strom) has flattened out the rear tread after 1000 miles or so. The r12's rear is pretty wide, so I could see it being even worse there. That said, I'd want to try them too.

Got any images of the scorps after some mileage?

I prefer Spaceley Space Sprockets myself!

Tires last 6 months if you ride a lot. Buy different ones and see what you like. Less flattening than Anakee 2's on my Strom.

The steering dampener on my r1100r is sticky. Anyone know if somebody rebuilds them?

Well then you're completely clueless. Any thinking person knows Cogswell Cogs are clearly superior to Spacely Sprockets!
