    Question 2005 R1200ST Risers Search & RPM tech?

    I recently purchased a R1200ST and really do love the bike. I had a R1200C and the horsepower jump is uncomparable. However the forward riding position has taken a little getting used to. After about 1500mi it continues to get better, but I would like to try some risers. Creative Cycle Concepts are the only ones I can find on the net. Suburban Machinery is questioning on whether to manufacture any at all. Any comments / help would be greatly appreciated.

    I also noticed that I am getting some vibration on my hands around 4200rpm in 6th gear (~80mph). Granted this is fast (it is a SPORTS Tourer), but I would think that it would still be smooth at that level. Again, comments appreciated.

    Thanks in advance to you fellow members for offering any help!

    You might want to look on BMWST.com and do a search as some risers have been posted on that site. Also www.r1200st.us/ is a new site for ST owners send them an email with your request.My ST is quite smooth at 4200 around 4800 there is a little buzz but that goes away then smooth again till redline.

    Both of my hexheads have gotten smoother with mileage.

    Is yours still drinking oil?

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
