    Sorry I didn't attribute that quote. That's not me. RL Lemke, a moderator at the K1600 forum and inventor of the super plug, said it. And he's just quoting the oil-check procedure in the manual. As...

    Randy, you're looking at about $250 for the OEM LED retrofit and the ZFE handshake. I have the Photon Blasters, P3s and the factory LED turn signals. Recently, I joined a 12-step LED program.

    Rather than a oil cooler screen, a better return on investment, at least on an R12R, is protection for the exposed oil filter on the bottom of the engine. A bash plate off a GS will provide this...

    There's a black cap on the bike's accessory connector. Pull it off and plug in the white repair plug (with yellow wires) into it. Here's the connector with the cap removed.

    No matter what level in the site glass, until you clean the inside of the air box, you might continue to see oil seepage on the throttle-side seam. If you remove the air filter, you can reach inside...

    Forgot to note that the connector in my photo above is off a 2011+ R12R. The plug was more buried on my '09. With bright light, you'll find it.

    The connector, which is covered with a plastic cap, is zip-tied to the throttle-side frame under the tank. See the red wire above.

    One more thing: Take off the seat and look around. A local Motorrad dealer said it's one of the first things he does when assessing a bike. If the seller balks, I'd probably move on.

    For the past three years, I've turned off my R12R with the kill switch 99 percent of the time, per MSF basic rider instruction. I took the class before taking delivery. So far, so good.
