We have a BMW Boxer tuning specialist (i guess there are a few but he is the most known) here in germany (rehcing) that installed the kit for me, it consists of 105mm Pistal forged pistons and bigger cylinders (ofc )
it's in the original post, the final numbers are 132.3 HP and 140.4 NmWhat did you final Dyno look like, HP? etc…. Sure looks nice.
it's a tribute for the rninet customizer book but i will probably get tired of it sooner than later and rip it off for cleanliness reasons 😂Badass build!—except for that soul fuel decal 😆
i did not ride the metzelers for long but the contis RA4 are very good tyres, they can basically do it all dry, wet, heat up fast, good mileage etc. but i basically never ride in the rain thats why i will go for sport tyres nextAlso curious your impression of the new Conti's vs the OE Metzler's?
the stock oil cooler is sufficient, in slow city traffic it can get into the high 120s (celsius) but at normal riding its not an issue. i recommend not using any oil cooler covers as they do lower the cooling efficiency a little.Wonderful ! I did not know that such kits existed for the 1200.
Did you have to deal with some extra cooling due to the increase in performance ?
good that you got it to work, i lost patience after the 10th adjustment and said 🤬 it 😂 but you also have a different shaped mirror, maybe that helps 🤷♂️I have the underbar Motogadget kit from Classic Raisch and it took some time and many adjustments to get the angles right, but I do not hit my tank on full lock.
With just a slight tilt of the head while riding, I have great vision. Here's a photo when I was first installing them (Club version vs. the OP's Sport version mirrors)

there is not much needed besides a good set of torx bits and wrenches, tongs (?) and screwdrivers. even the clutch can be changed without any special tools. however you do need some special lubricants to reassemble the swingarm (the rubber cuffs need special grease to seal right and the driveshaft connections needs a special grease)"Some work"?
From the looks of things, that is a lot of work!
Congrats and I admire your technical skill.
Question: apart from torx wrenches, did you have to use any special tools to get to this stage of disassembly?
