Sorry I meant R1100RT. Typo
how do I reset the ABS on my 2000 E1100RT?
What I have found out so far is that the enemy to the engine from water type coolants (including antifreeze mixes) is electrolysis that causes the metals in the water passages to...
I saw a show (Wheeler Dealers) the other day that showed them installing a waterless coolant in a car. I had never heard of it before. They said a lot of good things about it. I went to a...
Thanks guys. It makes sense now. I can see where I can reach the bulb. So I'm on it.
Appreciate the help. Didn't make any sense to be a big hassle for such a small task.
Thanks again. This...
NO tools? The CD says I had to remove the side panels, windshield, windshield supports, wing and housing.
Can the bulb be reached without removing all those things?
anybody replace their headlight bulb in their 2006 K1200GT themselves?
Is it worth doing myself or have the dealer do it? Looks like a lot of work to get to according to my Maintenance...
Thanks Limecreek I appreciate your help. I heard that even the new tensioner can jam once in a while and cause problems thus I went for the ape manual one. Maybe I misunderstood the situation?
adjusting while it is running was the instructions from APE when I put one on my Police kawasaki but the instructions for the one for my BMW (actually it came without any instructions...
My Avast warning keeps going off. Whats up?
I'm installing an APE tensioner and have a question. Instructions say to rotate the motor while adjusting. How did you turn the motor? I'm thinking of removing the plugs and rotating the...
Thanks Gilly for the input.
I did search the web extensively and could not really find anything firmly negative about it. Found some Honda owners using with no clutch problems. I used to own an...
Anybody have any experience with the Motorkote oil additive?
Their testing results looked pretty impressive on their website. I use to work at a University and am familiar with the...
I was just advised by my dealer (San Jose BMW) that BMW will NOT reimburse for the parts or labor for guards not installed by the Dealer.
Please let me know if any of you hear...
found my receipt: $93.22 for parts alone dated 9/22/2012.
I just sent an email to my dealer with the info. We'll see what he says.
I bought the guard, screws and the gasket (the gasket was pretty pricey if I remember correctly maybe more that $20?) a...
Thanks a lot. Now I really feel like crap cause I just did both the tensioner and jump guard on my own dime about a month ago.:doh
I'm having fun now.
FYI was just notified that my bike does indeed need a "relay lever" is what they called it. Said they would perform the work at the same time they do my air box upgrade.
Thanks again for the help....
Thanks for the info guys. That pretty much what I thought. I'll talk to my local Dealer and have him address this when he does my airbox.
Thanks again. You guys know your stuff.:heart
anybody have any involvement with a Recall related to the rear link bearings on K1200GT 2005-2008 motorcycles? Under NHTSA Campaign ID number 10V488000.
Did you get yours replaced?...
Hi guys I recently posted about fettling the air box on my 2006 K1200GT to eliminate a high idle problem. I even included the instructions I had obtained.
Here is an update:
I did mine twice...
Thanks Gilly, I'm on it.
The fettling involves lightly sanding an area in the airbox and a "distribution cap"
I hope it is ok to put this here. I...

I'm trying to figure out exactly which length screw goes where for the fairings and such. My maintenance DVD that I...
