One of the nicest thing about buying a brick that's been sitting for a while is when it finally wakes up and starts to run like it's supposed to.  Last week I ran a tank of gas with Techron through Moby Brick Too's engine and then on Saturday did a fill up with no-corn 90 octane.  About 10 miles into that tank of gas the buzz in the grips almost disappeared, especially in the 65-80 mph range and the power noticeably increased.  Idle is a bit smoother(it already was pretty good) and throttle response is getting better. 

I suspect that one or more injectors were gummed up from sitting idle for 5 years and that after a thousand+ miles have finally broken loose.  Looking forward to checking valve clearances and balancing the throttle bodies again this winter.

The difference in running from when I first got it to now is like night and day.  It's almost running as good as the Moby Brick did now. 

Another job done was to replace some of the clips that hold the mirror/turn signals to the fairing.  The mirrors were so loose that the slightest bump would knock them off.  With the new clips they feel incredibly secure and can take quite a shot without loosening. 

The clips are rather expensive, even by BMW standards(over $6 for a tiny bit of metal), but the improvement in how solid the even more costly mirror assemblies are is more than worth the investment.  My suggestion is if you have an RS with delicate mirror attachments you should get some of these clips.  I'm pretty sure you will notice the improvement.

For me the k1100 is just temporary since I borrowed it from a friend. The female banjo is thread is worn out on my k75 master cylinder. As mentioned I will go for a brembo set with also a usd swap so for now its okay. For you it will be a good solution to use the 4 pod calipers with the usd form and oem handlebar controls. How come they are so expensive if you want we have these k1100 local for not more then 100Ä used in good shape.

I'm struggling to find a k1100 set up second hand and its around $500 new, might be cheaper to buy a k1100 complete. Love the intake on the k75 bud, bet she sucks like a prostitute.

The tire looks good !

Iím planning to change the controls also, so I will buy a brembo master and clutch set this winter when I do the USD fork swap.
Regarding the K1100 brake cylinder, iím using one now on my k75 and it works like a charm bro!
Here is a picture.

I used the throttle cable of the k1100 with a custom braket on the k75 throttle body.
