    Obviously you have a GSA, or GSA panniers, since that would be the only bike with aluminum panniers.

    Anyhow, they are pretty sensitive to being aligned. Take a piece of ribbon and put it in the...

    I haven't checked the compression, but I might just for fun.

    I plan on doing the normal maintenance, 6K services, 12K valves just because they likely never move, and were dead on when I got it.

    I guess you would have to ask BMW.

    BTW, the Camhead has been around longer than 4 years.

    I expect it has to do with reducing the valve check/adjust frequency.

    The HexCode people are working this. I had one for the "Wethead DVD" and it is pretty outstanding. The GS911 WiFi works great on any computer with WiFi and is pretty slick. They should be out soon.

    IMHO you should look at the throttle cables, fuel lines, and brake lines for replacement. Also look at your brake rotors and bobins, and consider replacing your vacuum lines as well.

    Not on an R1200. I often use the sidestand to shut off the bike. As for using the switch, well, you have to use the switch every time anyhow, so no issues.
