    Thank you. This link was very good. It really PISSES me off (with BIG CAPS) that 441 BMW in Fort Lauderdale was such pussies about this. Isn't that why we pay higher prices for this equipment and...
  4. Rekeying Top Case on 08 R1200 RT. BMW tells me it can't be done !

    For the sake of argument, I'm going to say that my last bike was a 2008 BMW R1200 RT, but it really was a 2007 BMW K1200GT. My last bike had the large 49-litre top case where all keys were alike. ...

    Comparison of RT to GT

    I currently have an 04 RT. I really love the bike but I also love the newer K12GT lines and performance. Any advise as to the transition to the GT from the RT.

    The GT seems to have the rider...
  8. Is there such a thing as a 2005 K1200 GT?

    I've been looking at K12GTs and like the newer body styling and performance of the K engine. Am I correct that the new body style came in on the 2006 models. Why don't I ever see 2005 K1200 GT's?

  10. Have R1150RT. Why would I want a K1200 GT?

    I've got a 2004 R1150 RT. A few days ago, I rode a K1200S and was blown away at the power of the K motor. While the K12S was fun, I want more of a sports touring bike with more of an upright...

    I just looked at the 45 shirts at Sierra - and they all look like the typical corporate shirt. For the most part, they're lame. They're the same ones that other dealers have. Seriously, I can't...

    I thought of that. Blue lights are mostly likely not a welcome site in any state, but I have the bulbs switched. You see blue LEDs on bikes ALL the time. If I see a cop, I flip the switch, and...

    Years ago, I remembered seeing the Z4 emblem and wondering if it was backlit, but had never seen it lit. This is where the idea came from. And no, you can't use the Z4 as the base as the size is...

    It's none of the above. The flat spot on acceleration at about 5K RMP to 6K RPM is mostly likely caused by the stick coils starting to go bad. This has been very well described to me on the...

    Took my emblems off with dental floss. You do wreck the adhesive sticker and you'll need to take the remaining off or use silicon to re-attach them.
