deaks Posted November 19, 2009 Share Posted November 19, 2009 I recently swapped my '97 R1100RT for a nice shiny '07 R1200RT with more gizmo's than my car. I have read an awful lot of comments about the bike, some good, some bad, but for me the R1200RT is in a different class for the kind riding I do.... except for one thing... I tended to run the 1100 around the 5k - 6k rev mark, but the 1200 doesn't seem to like this too much and get's pretty buzzy... further up is quite nice and lower down too, but sometimes it feels like it's labouring a little if I'm in too low a gear, although it still pulls very nicely. I asked about this at the dealer and the techs said to keep the revs low, but reading on the net I see advice to the contrary. So my question is this - how do you ride yours? One of the reasons for asking this is that I had a failed exhaust valve on my 1100 after about a year - I managed to fix it and let everyone on the forum know about my woes - the general consensus was to 'give it some beans' once I got it running again.
