    Your early failures sound like luck of the draw.. not fuel additives. As far as your third strip - sounds like it was replaced after BMW pulled all the in-stock strips from dealers and replaced them...

    Wonder if it is a separate LED - or one is used for both functions..? If that's the case - and the OP (who hasn't responded to any of the posts here since his complaint about no one responding -...

    I'd suggest then that you look into some good ear plugs. Makes it a pleasure to ride with a boxer..

    What was used for an ambient light sensor was probably an LED - they actually put out voltage when light falls on them. Kisan uses LED's for the light sensor on their headlight modulator.

    I'd strongly suggest the OP open the DIY section of the forum and become familiar with the contents. There is a rather detailed writeup on syncing the R1200xx throttle-bodies (done my moi..) But -...

    Are you certain this is abby-normal? If the bike is new to you - BMWs do have some driveline lash that exhibits itself as a knock when you roll on or let off the throttle, especially at low speeds. ...

    This is one where using a GS-911 might be helpful. It sounds like a short circuit somewhere that is causing the ZFE to turn off the headlight circuits. The GS-911 should tell you this. As with any...

    That will work - it will likely cause the engine to run rougher if the coil is good - or stall. The steppers should try to maintain the idle speed. The one that doesn't cause a change in the engine...

    Someone somewhere posted a U-Tube video link of a video from Russia showing a guy doing an R&R of the swingarm and driveshaft. VERY well done - with each tool called out and the torque called out,...

    Jeff,

    Since it sounds as if no one has mucked with the balance (aka sync) - chances are it's still spot on. Even though I wrote the DIY for the TB sync - I have only adjusted mine once, and the...

    Given the symptoms - my immediate thought is one of the stick coils - a primary - has failed. Unfortunately the ECU doesn't store misfire codes.. so you can't diagnose this with the GS-911. The...
