    Hello New Member here

    Hi finally ordered an s1000rr m sport should be arriving in March from Bhanstormer ! Been on Japanese bikes for years, my first BMW
    Any ideas for basic mods that don’t cost the earth.
    Thinking radiator and oil cooler guards, Evotech tail tidy and end can to start ?
    Is it worth buying anything from the dealer or worth buying and fitting myself ? Not scared to get the spanners out.
    Thanks
    Andy

    Welcome Andy ! Lots on the market, depends how deep your pockets are and what you want to achieve? My main ones are front suspension sensor to split comp/rebound, Racing Radiator Guards, GB crash protection, GB bullet sliders, a Chinese end can, and a tall screen.

    But what is it made of? Does it shatter when the bike drops unlike the genuine article?

    Thanks I’m only riding on the road and don’t want to be invalidating any warranty by playing with the suspension that much but happy bolting bits on like engine cases and end can

    Nothing to do with warranty, it's there to be adjusted as necessary. 85k rider would be different to 120k rider lol
