Burnout on a fully loaded '12 K1300R Carbon edition

Hi folks,

It's been many years since I visited this forum and some riding in between.

15Ks later and at the end of the life span of the Metzler M3s, I decided to send them off with a burnout.

I have to add that the bike is fully loaded, ESA, ASC etc. I deactivated the ABS and hence ASC also was deactivated and I tryed a few times but couldn't get the rear tire to brake loose for more than one complete spin. After a 5-10 tries I quit since I didn't want to punish the bike that much (clutch, brakes etc).

So what gives? Did any of you manage to do it? I know the bike brakes on both wheels but I assumed it would had more than enough power to overcome that rear brake activation....

Cheers!

Like you said, linked brakes. Even if you overpowered the rear brake, it would melt down, right?

Try doing the burnout against a wall instead of using the front brake.

Front wheel to front wheel of another bike and you both do burnouts.

Steve Mauk, the salesmen who sold me my K1200GT at Max BMW Troy shop is the rider in this commercial for BMW.

Don't get it...doesn't the K1200R have the same linked brakes as the K13?

He appears to spin that rear tire so effortlessly without gigantic engine RPM input.
