    Thanks, OM.

    I keep the bike on the BMW Canbus charger pretty much all the time it is in the garage and it sounds, from the starter cranking, that it has plenty of juice. But I'll mention it to...

    A stronger alternator!

    If Motorrad is to create an 800RT, it will need to include an alternator with more output than the wimpy one on current F twin bikes. A touring bike will have more electrical demands placed on it,...

    I recently went back to an F650GS after trying an R1200GS. I saved my centech fuse box with relay that I used on both my 1st F650 and the R12GS, planning to use it on my new F650. Ran into a...

    Thanks to all for your input. I did have a BMW service department response that it could be done, so I will probably do that when I receive the F800GS that I have purchased. My reason for wanting...

    F800GS octane rating change

    I've read that the F800GS, which requires super unleaded, can be remapped by a dealer to run on regular unleaded, like the F650GS twin, with only a small loss in power. Does any one know if this is...

    GS gas mileage

    Thanks for the information. I wondered if the R12RT's filters would work. Since both my wife and I have F650GS twins, I would rather do the work on them and buy in bulk.

    I switched from a 07 R1200RT to a 09 F650GS. While I love the GS, I sometimes miss the RT. But I'm moving on. When I had the RT, I found on some web forum alternative oil filters that I could use...
