    As they all have said. This is normal. Mine finally slowed down about 18K, and now at 27K uses a window full (1/2 quart) in 3000 miles. My K75 did the same thing, and now at 72K uses hardly any oil....

    I have always thought the R1200 would make a fine aircraft engine. Use a belt drive to a propeller for reduction and avoid thrust loading the crankshaft. I makes more HP that the old Continental...

    Math. These things are calculated out very carefully. The 3 year warranty that comes with the bike is not free. It is built into the price. Actuaries and statisticians figure out much it will cost in...

    At least you have a disk. The standard K75 rear drum has two modes. On and off. It locks up on most hard stops if you are not careful.

    Are you filling above the filler neck? Excess fuel can run into the evap canister and make it so wet, the tank cannot breath.

    Interesting. According to my 2009 R1200R manual, no fuses, and I have never seen one. I guess they are not all the same.

    BMW can make an air head to me emissions laws, but it will not make anywhere near 125 HP of today's boxers. The V-star makes maybe 50HP, nothing compared to what a modern 650 can make. Plus it is way...

    There are no fuses to pull on a current BMW bike. Circuit protections is done electronically in the controller module. That is why it complains if you install a bulb that pulls too much current.

    I had the same problem with the battery bug. My battery voltage was just high enough to keep the back light on, tripling the current draw, draining the battery in a week or two. Given the current...

    There is a large tab at the end of the metal peg to lock the rubber on. You will have to REALLY pry it off. I did it on my old K bike, and it took some effort.
