  1. HyperLites fork mounting brackets...

    Has anyone used these stick-on stainless steel brackets? I have a set of Hyper Lites LED running lights (which stick to the brackets--which stick to the forks), but I'm wondering if all this...

    Stick coils.....

    The job is looking less intimidating than I originally thought. I did order an aftermarket puller, just to be safe, and already have some thin-walled sockets for the plugs. Coils are on order from...

    A follow-up question....

    Can this be done without the official BMW plug socket puller, #12 3 520, and spark plug wrench, #12 3 510? Or will ordinary, less high-end tools suffice?

    Okay, the clip released. Next question.....?

    Does the bulb pull straight out or do you twist it to unseat and remove it? I really don't want to break anything in that constricted space. Thanks for the help.

    Headlight bulb replacement??

    I need to replace the low beam bulb on a 1150rt ('04) and can actually squeeze a hand in there to reach the plastic cover located above the oil cooler. The cover seems to be held on by a single...

  9. Another oil consumption question........

    I returned last week from a trip of approx. 4200 miles on an '04 RT. Having changed the oil shortly before leaving for Utah, and thus knowing how much went in there(g), I decided to change it again...
  10. Limiting idling time is ok. If...

    If it's practical at a given time, that is. Stop-and-go crawling traffic due to road repair/construction can get things hot in a hurry and on an interstate shutting down and sitting on the shoulder...
  11. I wondered about obstructed airflow also.

    It must not be a problem with the police bikes, though. Otherwise there's be a lot of overheated cops on the sidelines instead of in the streets. (g)
  12. Oil cooling fan for a cooler cooler?????

    I just read the ON article about installing an oil cooling fan (as on the R1150RT-P police bike) on the R1150RT. Seems to be such a good idea I have to wonder why it isn't a standard RT feature. ...

    Bad cell may be the answer.

    Nope, the bike didn't sit up for any lenth of time prior to this problem, only about three days due to hard rains. In fact, I just recently got it and have really enjoyed the 4000+ miles so far. A...

    Dead battery already???

    Yesterday my relatively new (4150 miles) '04 RT started normally with no indication of a problem. However, when I shut it down to get off and close a gate it refused to restart, acting and sounding...

    The scenario: A 2004 R1150RT, recently purchased new, had the 600-mile maintenance and currently has 4150 miles total. This morning it showed oil about halfway up the sight glass while on the...
