Re: ** 2002 R1150RT -- List of recommended mods **

Doug,  You are getting good advise from the other posts on this.  One 
comment on the Two Brothers pipe.  I am running their pipe but a Honda 
VFR muffler.  The sound is just right for me.  Less noise than the Two 
Brothers can.  But my comment to you is that the Two Brothers pipe 
section that I am using is noticeably poorer quality than either the 
stock material, or stainless pipe you can get from JC Whitney.  
Basically, I am not impressed with the quality of the Two Brothers 

I put Spiegler lines on my RS which has ABS.  They made no difference 
to the mushy lever feel.  Not sure if this is a bleeding issue or not 
really.  My general feeling is that the ABS plumbing makes for a soft 
feel on the lever.  I had good power both before and after the line 
change out.
