    I'd start with having her take the MSF BRC and then seriously consider a smaller bike. Something like a used Vespa 250-300, BV250, or Kymco would be ideal. Though I've never totally dropped a bike,...

    I used a Dremel and put a small notch in the lip of the box. I didn't do anything to the cover as the notch is the perfect size for routing the cable.

    I'd guess so but not sure I'd pop $150 for the two parts. Of course, that's for the '13s painted parts. The black unpainted parts should be less.

    I've had ScotchCal on the filler cover and the U-shaped piece that surrounds it for about six months. Though it does help with scuffs, it's susceptible to being nicked from boots or other objects. ...

    Haha, OK. The best thing would be to compare it to other C650s and then you'll know if there's something amiss or just BMW's engineering.

    What makes you think it's an intake noise and not just the tractor-like noise they all make? :)

    Have you compared it to other C650s and heard a difference?

    To be fair, I haven't been explicitly told I'm responsible for the 600 mile service; the dealer mentioned in but didn't say yes or no either way.

    Within the past couple of weeks my C650 GT (8,100 miles) has developed what can best be described as a "clattering" when turning at around 2500 RPM. I can replicate it without moving (i.e., on the...
