I think a side car conversion would have modified the tupperware.
How agressive are you riding? I scrape "all the time" (center stand, foot pegs, lower fairing, etc). I could benefit from new Ohlins (or other) shocks, but I'm still in overdraft protection in the "love-bank".
There is a knob under the driver's seat that controls the shock preload. Lift the seat, pivot it up and rotate the knob clock wise.
If you don't feel any (or very little) resistance, you may need to add some oil. Seems BMW was a little stingy on the shock oil and most have had to "top it off". There is a procedure listed somewhere on the site.
How many miles on your bike?
