He ended up having to take it to the local BMW shop and forking over 700 for them to send a brand new ingnition and lock set for the thing.
, i'm sorry but maybe it aint that common for this kind of technology to appear stateside, but its called security my friend...
how do you think the immobilizer package works on R1s in Canada!? yeah you're right... its expensive for the owner to repair if some numb-nutts doesnt realize it before he tries to jack yer chit, but that's part of the deterrent as well!! whatever you're trying to rip off, is gonna cost the thief the same amount or more to get past.... and of course since he aint the owner, he will not have access to any of the pieces needed to get the system up n' running again... its by design!!.. and at least in Canada, where its mandatory
brand new bikes have 'em, believe me.! it works!!
Im guessing by dethrone you mean dethrone the paper specs and magazine reviewers?
1) S1K does look good.
2) oodles of power
I've had my share of "dethroning" many a S1K at my local track. And all I have is decat, FT, PCV + AT, slip ons, quick shift and my right wrist.
+1 anybody with a modern literbike would be wise to actually ride an s1krr for a good while before they automatically
decide to brand it king of the hill,... this, oodles of power, does not really show up until you're at track level rpms...
and its a rev happy engine,... it ends up feeling very 600ish out in the real world, and not nearly as much useable power as
on a crossplane R1... but it does look good on paper. woah.. 193 HP!! now thats impressive.!!
yup, you're right... that is a big number.... we all like big numbers...
