    2015 F700GS question

    I'm probably going to down-size from my 1200RT to an F700GS because of a combination of increasing age and a recent shoulder replacement operation. I've found a very nice 2013 F700 for sale at a...

    That's a big part of my problem. I only weigh 160 pounds, so my weight alone isn't enough to get the bike on the center stand. My previous 1200RT had Wunderlich pannier guards which provided a...

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. The PitBull may be the way to go. A bit pricy, but worth it not to wreck my shoulder.

    Thanks for the replies. The only time I put the bike on the center stand is for washing and wrenching. At those times, the bags are empty or already off. The suggestion about changing the ESA is a...

    Putting 1200RT on center stand question

    I just had a right total shoulder replacement following an accident. I was told that in the future I shouldn't be lifting more than 30 pounds with that arm. I'm worried I won't be able to put my...

    The ATF isn't messy if you simply wipe off the excess. On the other hand, I'd contend the Scottoiler is pretty messy. Like oil and seats, everyone has a favorite. I doubt any are better than...

    Many on the Chain Gang use ATF or Automatic Transmission Fluid. I've used it for years on my F650GS. Most like likely it just cleans the chain, but whatever.

    Another fuse box for a 1200RT

    I finally got around to rewiring the accessory outlets and adding some to the used 2009 RT I recently bought. I couldn't see paying $60+ for one of the fuse boxes like Fuzebox, Centec, etc. for just...

    My experience also. I think load testing must be a black art that not everyone can do correctly. I'd try a new battery, even if you have to borrow one.

    New fuel gauge

    I heard the 2010 GSA has a float-type fuel gauge instead of the failure-prone strip. Is that true of all 2010 GS's and other camheads?

    I have Happy Trails bags, so the frame is available. I just haven't figured out a good way to attach a lifting handle without getting in the way of the rear peg.
