    Sam - glad you got it sorted out. Interestingly enough, a month or two ago my clutch switch failed intermittently - wouldn't allow a start in gear when it got hot. It tested fine on the bench, but...

    Don - do you know if they'll reimburse for out-of-pocket replacements prior to them putting the extended warranty in place?

    Sorry I can't be more help. I don't have a BMW top case or else I'd figure it out.

    For what it's worth: my son has a BMW 28L top case on his F800 and told me that his lock cylinder dropped out to...

    Phil - in this video the guy discusses getting the cylinder out of the lock at about 17:00. He also discusses how to rekey to your existing key.

    Thanks, Paul. I thought about that - not quite long enough. I'm going to have to find a connector and some more tubing to patch it properly, but the ziptie works OK for the short term.

    While you're at it, check the left side too. On my '09 RT the left side nipple connects to a hose that I believe goes to the vapor canister. My hose has always been looser than I would like a vacuum...

    Sam - I don't think it's ever supposed to start or run with the kickstand down and in gear. I don't think your clutch switch bypasses that lockout. Mine doesn't. That's one of the things that is on...

    Well, that's what I'm hoping. My failures happened last summer (2013) so maybe the first replacement was old stock. I remember the service advisor telling me that he had some strips that failed right...

    I think the spec on tightening the jam nuts on the valve tappets is 8 Nm, not 8 in-lb. 8 Nm is about 70 in-lb. Pretty easy to see why one might loosen if it was tightened to 8 lb-in.

    John - I've heard that it's a nominal 25 seconds (don't ask me where that came from). On mine the majority of the time that's about how it works, seems to shut off while I'm putting the cover on. But...

    My original strip lasted around 52K miles. First replacement the shop put the BMW fuel additive in and suggested running it each tank. Well, at 1 oz/gallon that was adding around $0.75 to each...

    My thought too. Mine does it. If it goes away about a second after pulling in the clutch, chances are it's the surges in the engine at idle loading and unloading the various shafts in the...

    Dave - I believe one cam holds the two cables from the handlebar and one holds the cable from the cruise controller. When you turn the throttle only the one with two cables coming to it should move....

    Did the light on the dash go on when you try to engage? If so, you may have a mechanical issue, the cruise control uses a separate cable from the controller to the throttle box.

    Phil - that looks like it from what I remember. Best way to find out is to remove the cover and try to plug your harness/adapter into it. If it fits, you've found it. Don't overthink it.

    Yeah, same with me. The popping occasionally occurs with slight opening of the throttle during decel. Generally going downhill where there's a significant compression effect. Not just on simple...
