    I'll have to look at the schematic. Thanks for the reminders. :) I clipped the ground/negative lead of my cables, to the cylinder head over by the exhaust (it was the only place I could get it to...
  2. Another R1150R Battery Question - Just Want to Confirm Something

    Wouldn't you know it! I park my R1150R crosswise, in front of my car, in my (underground apartment garage) parking space. What did I see when I turned on my car's lights before I backed out of my...

    Hmmm, that's a possbility. I haven't had much time (due to work commitments - I'm writing this at 4:35 AM, as I'm getting ready to head out to work), to do any additional work on my R1150R, much...

    So, the battery still may be useable, despite being dead since the middle of November? I do have a charger.

    I wish the battery wasn't under the gas tank. The manual lists pulling the gas tank...

    Unfortunately, there's no outlet in the underground garage, for me to plug a charger into. :( Considering how long the battery has been dead, maybe I should just replace it.

    Need to Remove My R1150R's Battery

    My 2004 R1150R has been laid up for the winter since mid November. I filled the tank with gas, and put gas stabilizer in the tank. I was going to take out the battery, and put it on a trickle...

    Cool! :) Thanks for the info Frank! I've been wondering what are some good riding roads around here, and it's nice to know that I don't have to go all the way to Jefferson County for non-ethanol...

    Sorry. I guess that was a poor way of stating that I have a technical background. My bad.

    Hi Sharon,

    Yep, I know where Oconomowoc is. I'm just 2 miles east of the Waukesha County line (just off of '894), and you're close to the Jefferson County Line side of the county. Thanks for the...

    Yeah, they are kind of tall aren't they! I imagine that at a stop sign, or stoplight, I'd end up standing on a GS, like I used to stand on my old 80s Honda XL250R - with the bike leaning the bike to...

    Hmmmm, interesting. There was a lot of hype about the Super Tenere, and how it was going to give adventure bikes like the GS, a run for their money. Oh well. IMO, GSes are cool - fantastic...

    Thanks! :) I'm still not at 100% capability-wise, due to the long layoff from riding. But with time, I'll get there. I'd forgotten how cold 52 degrees can even be without gloves. That was the...
