Hi Steve. Like I said I did it on mine and it did not effect handling at all, of course I am not a BMW engineer. And, you are right, you will not gain much by doing the procedure.
The procedure is not in Clymers, I found the suggestion on one of these BMW forums but can't find it right now. It was a fairly simple operation but akward with the RT fairing in the way. Just a matter of getting the allen wrenches down there and losing up the clamps. I think the "dashboard" was in the way, and had to be taken off.
I will keep searching for the link as you asked for.
By the way, I got the letter you sent with the RT info. Thanks so much.
edit: here is one link that mentions the procedure but no details:
(It also warns of cornering clearance changes)
I think I saw more details on BMWMOA but I can't search there without becoming a paying member, and I'm too cheap for that.
