    I actually didn't think the original poster was asking to sell the bike here on the forum, just looking for some advice on price. That seems like a reasonable topic for discussion. Most of us buy and...

    Just a final note. I got everything put back together and tested the bike. The display works well so it apparently was just the sensor that was bad. As I noted in a related thread, changing the...

    I did finally get the panels back on the bike. I had to elongate the tank cover screw holes with a Dremel so that I could even see all of the opening for the hole in the tank. Then, using a drift, I...

    I really can't figure out what happened here. I do know that if I have to remove the side panels for any length of time in the future, I will put the plastic tank cover screws back in immediately to...

    Thanks to both PAS and Oldnslow. I will try loosening the large tank holding bolt. But, I realized after posting the question, that as Oldnslow states, it's really the tank cover piece that is the...
  6. Gas tank tank removed, replaced, now fairing screws no longer line up.

    I've had the plastic off my RT once before and everything went back together, or at least as I remember it it did. This time I had to remove the tank, then replace it. Now the 6 screws that are on...

    Yes, I guess that's true, just like their luxury cars. Unfortunately, that also often makes me wonder why I own one. I am far from joining the millionaire's club. But even if I was, common sense...

    That's a beautiful, well cared for machine. I love the color.

    Sorry for the delay in reporting back on this job. It's actually turned into a rather long process due to me trying to accomplish two goals at the same time. While all the plastic was off, I thought...

    Thanks to Roger, and everyone else. I'm going to order the sensor from Beemer Boneyard and put it in. It looks like I need to take the tank off to get to it. I think I can somewhat see it from...

    Well, this is proving to be as interesting as I thought it might. I have called several dealers. Some tell me it is the unit on the left side of the engine block with a single violet colored wire....

    An interesting post. I found it so because I also sometimes wonder about switching brands/bikes. But after spending time at the local shops, carefully looking past the shiny chrome or glitzy new...

    The display progresses steadily upward as the bike warms up. It only cancels out after it gets to the five bars, I'm not sure it's always after the same time. Now yesterday I tried to watch both the...

    BMW temp sensor: $91
    Honda temp sensor: $41

    If they both last the same amount of time, my calculations still show that the Goldwing sensor costs 55% less than BMWs. Where am I wrong there? Anyone...

    Thanks for the reply, Mike. I too will skip over the cost factor at this point. But am I to assume that to reach this sensor I will need to remove the tupperware off one or both sides of the...

    Just an addition to my earlier post. One, I found that the display would register the correct oil temperature even after letting the bike sit for just a short time. Secondly, if it is actual sensor...
  18. Oil Temperature Display Intermitent Failure

    I never thought anything would ever go wrong with my 96 R1100RT. It's pretty dependable. But......unfortunately, something has. The oil temperature part of my RID will suddenly go blank. Everything...

    I have often thought of moving to a Goldwing myself. I had a 76 Wing years ago and I can still remember that you could hardly hear it running, both at idle and on the road. That still seems to be...

    If I rode a GS maybe I would do as I see so many in the MOA magazine do: first cover the the metal bags with stickers, then cover the whole bike with mud. On a RT I feel a little differently. It's a...

    [QUOTE
    Lots of people seem really happy with the Aeroflow shields, but it didn't work for me, and high-speed stability was one of the reasons.

    I'm trying to get my R1200RT to a point where I'm...

    Just my opinion, but that seems like a very good deal on that bike. I don't know other brands that closely, but each older BMW seems to have a vague floor in price. Airheads, about $3000 (for a...

    Calcium Chloride Corrosion on Alaska Trip?

    I was just reading the interesting article in the current MOA News about Chris Wilson riding through Alaska. It appears that just about every GS owner dreams of riding to Alaska. Fair enough. But ...

    Incredible. A beautiful motorcycle with a nearly fatal flaw (fatal from the cost of labor and parts to repair it, not to the rider).
