    If you got the whole assembly for the price of just the MC, buy me a beer at a rally some day! :) Normally the MC is $200+ and the complete assembly is more like $350. But the complete assembly is...

    Yes. You have to remove the clutch cable or at least back the locknut out to make room. Then there's a small screw that holds the switch in place.

    One of my customers got the Wilbers/ESA conversion a year or two ago on his R1200RT. Just saw him; he is still extremely pleased with the suspension. As above, he thought it turned a good handling...

    Gear up for the riding you do, not the bike. Even on an RT there are different choices to be made for different touring styles.

    Tell us what you're going to be doing, then maybe you'll get some...

    Let me clarify: I don't mean to say that Powerlet's product is bad, just that the cigarette lighter interface is bad in general. While the cigarette lighters themselves have a retention ring, most...

    You mean so you can plug cigarette lighter stuff in? Powerlet will sell stuff like that, but the cigarette lighter interface is horrible. Vibrates loose. The DIN socket on the BMW was designed to be...

    I install a lot of PC680s. For the GS, there is a great battery tray made by Motoren-Israel just for that battery. It [unfortunately] needs a little bit of modification to fit properly, but it's way...

    Actually I misspoke. A new MC does NOT come with a new lever. I know that; I order them all the time. You can buy a whole new control perch (MC, lever, res, housing, everything but the throttle tube...

    I think I'd rather not have a 4-cylinder for that kind of riding. I could probably be convinced otherwise, though.

    If cleaning & lubing the lever doesn't get you anywhere, you're going to end up cleaning out the master cylinder. I rarely bother these days; in my experience they never feel the same after the...

    Sounds like it has the RT-P side stand harness installed (or a similar mod). I have installed a few for customers; it's a BMW accessory.

    On the classic Oilheads you can add the side stand wiring harness from the RT-P to enable running with the side stand down, but if you are 'warming the bike up' for so long that you need it to be on...

    What do your eyes tell you? If they're leaking, tell the dealership about it. They will probably stand behind their work.

    There are a lot of reasons for fork seals to leak: pitted tubes, seals...

    About the starting and running for a minute... I get the impression you weren't riding. How long would you have let it run if it hadn't shut itself off? I've seen engine damage, including HES...

    The headlight switch was not original to US models but it can be added. Police bikes had them although they were wired for other things, many of our bikes have them also.

    I think that's safe to assume. Whatever you do, make it easy to remove the tank afterward without disconnecting wires.

    It will be a flat 3-pin connector. Can't remember right now if the harness side is male or female. Sounds like you have a switch blank in the dashboard.

    The switch (and I want to say the switch...

    If you look at the tank from underneath you will see how little border there is on that hole before you get to fuel. I'd maybe double the size of the hole, max 3/8 inch, but I'd be nervous about even...

    ^ ?? ^ Useful?

    OP: the lower corners of the dash have switches; one can be the heated grips and once can be the 4-way flasher. The flasher, if present, would have a triangle logo.

    I have sent gauges to Terry and also to North Hollywood Speedometer. I think either can replace that lens. In fact, I just sent Terry a set of PD gauges for that exact reason. On a different job I...

    My take: the 6-speed arrived with the K12RS and was designed for that. When they fitted it to the boxer they noticed the discrepancy and added extra length to the clutch hub to compensate (measure an...

    Faired bikes all have oil coolers under the headlight (in front of the fork) where they get direct airflow. Stylistically that doesn't work well on the R1100R so that's probably why the side coolers...
