    It's the check oil level lcd warning indicator. Not the big red led pressure warning light telling you to pull over now or risk a meltdown.

    Kevin the installation was no trouble and everything seems to be working correctly. My bike doesn't have an alarm but I did take switched power from the same module.

    2013 R1200RT how much oil gulping is too much?

    I can't believe how much oil is being consumed. Between my 600 mile service and now (about 1,000 miles or so) I will have gone through half a quart! I see no evidence of a leak, no extra smoke from...

    Let me ask this -- if I had an alarm, would I also have been given a key fob remote much like a car would have to arm/disarm it?

    Nope. Mine has the connector facing the other way, from the direction of the back seat. And it's flat, square, with a white label on it.

    I rode an ST for a while and couldn't stand the parallel twin buzz. The wind protection was also inadequate for me. Other than that it was an easy bike to ride around town.
