    I'd imagine some wire in the switched circuit that controls those lights has worn through and is grounding (and thus completing the circuit) even when the switch isn't closed.

    You might want to get a quote from nisonger's too. Not sure they would work on BMW clocks but if so, they're good and I would think substantially cheaper than what you've been quoted. Although not...

    Heated gloves for me. They work great.

    Never tried heated grips as such, but for a while I had a stopgap solution - heated "wraps" for the grips that plug into the bike for a power supply. They...

    Krytox IS Krytox. I swear by it. But what you bought is SailKote - it may contain Krytox, but it is not Krytox.

    Buy a tube - it's expensive but you don't use much at a time, a small tube'll last...

    If you let the bike cool down and the problem disappears, then comes back when hot, then the overheating ICU is a definite candidate. If you haven't renewed the heat sink paste in a while, it's...

    1984 R100RT. ~42 MPG, very consistently - highways, back roads, wringing its neck or just cruising. Seems odd but at most a 1-2 MPG variation from fillup to fillup.

    Never saw it that I know of. But have spent a lot of time chasing problems only to have them go away with fresh plugs, so that's always one of my first "diagnostic" steps.

    Another country heard from: I generally like a firm ride, but in my 84, an experiment with 10W proved to be too much - way overdamped. I put in 7.5 and have been happy since.
