    That's the same story I heard. Amazing isn't it. Forever to 12000 is quite a screw up.

    2005 R1200RT Final drive failure

    I know little, but I challenge you to find another example of a drain plug on a hardened vehicle that is not on the bottom and uses gravity. If you can, then I will have to say you got me.

    I have a cee baileys oversized. Works great for me. If you really like the stock, I bet you can get one cheap. I have a completely unused one that is sitting in a box in my garage. Never thought...

    I guess that's one mans story, not consistent with physics, modern design, accepted standards for drain plugs or fill ports, but if it works for you then that is awesome.

    2005 R1200RT Final drive failure

    Then my 08 RT and my riding partners 05 are odd. Neither have. Here is the procedure for my original FD. Only plug was at 90 degrees.

    I have an 08. I was told of
    The forever fluid by my dealer. This story is supported by the fact that there is no drain port on the original FD. I will have to check my manual.

    Mine seems almost random. I have not timed it. I could swear that it has taken 5 min at times. Maybe in my head but if so my riding partner is just as senile as I am, he says the same.

    Sounds like fuel pump controller, have you replaced or bypassed it. Mine behaved as you say until it finally died and was replaced. Easy test if you have the burns moto cable.

    Mine was the contacts on the back of the bulb. Bulb was fine but contact had basically melted. I missed it on first inspection of the bulb. Changed bulb, good ever since.
