    I never question their ability. But what they are able to do and what they are permitted to do may be different. Consider the BoosterPlug company doing a thriving business selling a device that...

    "Meaning that in my service CD (for the 1300) there is no electrical in it."

    Which brings me back to the question, how do you get the electrical?

    Recalls

    I read about three recalls for the GT - the software and each of the switch assemblies - but BMW has not sent me any letters about them.
    Is it possible that my GT (S/N ...97182) is recent enough to...

    In our shop we used a slight variation on that method. We locked the lift at working height, and used a come-along (bars to rafters) to raise the front of the bike. That way, we did not rely on the...

    Slow to restart?

    When I start the GT shortly after turning it off, is sometimes does a slow crank (like a weak battery), but starts after about one turn of the engine. No hesitation at all when starting cold, even...

    I just upgraded from an R1150R to a K1300GT. No regrets at all.
    Actually find the GT to be better for town because it's a lot less picky about which gear I'm in, and the wet clutch is much better...

    Wrong Clymer

    You are right - it's not the earlier wedge. (I need to add "transverse" to my active vocabulary.) Still, the color codes are probably similar. Mental note - test before cutting.

    Non-contact DC sensor

    Found it!
    See Amazon.com for "Mastech DC & AC Non-contact Voltage Detector, DCY25".
    Don't know how good it is, but at $14.20 delivered, how bad could it be?

    Update - Clymer has a manual for the K1200 wedge series, so I ordered one of those. (I'm assuming that they didn't completely rethink the wiring color codes during the 1200/1300 update.)

    K1300GT Wiring Diagram

    I like to have good shop manuals for bikes I own - even BMWs that never break. So I bought the pricey DVD from BMW Motorrad, and thought I was all set up.

    "Long" trip

    We are riding from Tallahassee, Florida to the Redmond rally, taking the shortcut through New Hampshire.
    I think the answer is a big tank bag (and some UPS boxes).

    I'm thinking about going to HIDs on the low beams.
