just stopped back to read this again, and have to make a correction:    Hey Sherob....read you manual...  #7 needs a correction....    my C14 has CanBus, but I cna add things without bringing the whole system down....like led signals, hyperlights, and heated gear....      or you can replace #7 with    "no C14's DNF'd the IBR this year for mechanical failure...."   (a C10 did poop out tho.. sorry Kurt....)

I have a 2008 C14 with 3800 miles on it. Bought it 2 months ago with 1500 miles on it and I love it but have a Question. Between 2700 to 3200 RPM in any gear I constantly hear some subtle ringing or rattling noise coming from the front of the bike. Sounds like a bolt with a washer is loose. I searched many times for it but can

ALL IN FUN    6 reasons my BMW ('92 K100RS) is better than your C-14 because...    6  Insurance is very cheap.  5  It can not be called a rice rocket  4  It gets better mileage. (52.7 MPG best recorded)  3  I have the bragging rights to an odometer with 220,000 miles on it.  2  I only had to pay 1850.00 for it so I can take it on rides where there is a chance it won't come back. (like Prudoe Bay AK)  1 It is sitting in my garage, paid for, waiting my return from Kosovo.    6 reasons the C-14 is better than my BMW (and why I am planning one buying one when I return from deployment)    6  It is a distant relative to my favorite bike I EVER owned (1984-1990) the legendary 1984 GPz750E1 (the turbo).  5  It will still be under warranty.  4  Has a slipper clutch, not a dry clutch.  3  Will not be 18 years old.  2  it is just SOOO much faster!  1  My wife made the mistake of giving me permission to get one when I return from this deployment.    and #1 & 2 both count for 2.        
A bike will keep you young. The wrong bike will stop you from getting older.  There is a difference.

I always thought people got a BMW for the nice toolkit. :)

I've had several BMW's.  The last was a 2006 R1200GS.  They all vibrate and put your fore arms and hands to sleep.  I sold the GS to get the C-14.  I'll never to back to BMW.  By the way do you know what BMW stands for? BITCH, MOAN, WINE.  Rick

......AND the damned things are missing one swing arm.     For the money people have to give for Beemers they should have three swing arms in back.     ;)
