The bike (02 R1150RT) is running with neither the high-frequency buzz nor the stumbling and shutting down at idle that it had when I got it. The surging at part throttle is also gone. It has a much nicer sound, now, and smoother, better midrange power. It's not as strong as an R1200 by any means, but it now feels and performs the way I expected it to feel and perform when I bought it with 22,000 miles a couple of months ago. Here's what I did:
1. Replaced my broken quick-disconnect fuel lines with the newer ones from BMW. Thank you, Beech, for sending me the better O-rings, but since the stock disconnects were busted, I saved them for future use.
