    Low to normal seat conversion

    Lee,

    What can I say...you-the-man!

    Here's what my new toy looks like in my heated garage (poor thing spent all winter in a lukewarm shelter).

    Here's a couple of shots of those "special BMW tools" which I just removed from the wrapper:

    Lee, excellent walk through - how do you keep your bike so clean!
    Yes he did give me a bulb kit. I remember seeing it a few months ago and noting that one bulb was missing, his reply: no it's not, the kit is brand new from BMW. I'll take a picture of it when I find it.

    If I remember correctly, I think he told me that it was an ABS diag tool. However, apparently, it is incomplete without the computer.

    So, what does it do?

    I can always take reverse pictures and provide a shot-by-shot sequence of events of the low seat removal if you want.

    I will be away all week so it would be until next weekend that I start working on the reinstalling the low seat.

    That's the dirtiest it's EVER been. Busy ALL last year working on my racecar, didn't even make it to Redmond, or the 49er, or the Range of Light. Then rode a bunch in the rain this winter without having a chance to clean it. Hurt my shoulder (fell down the stairs) in Jan. so haven't been able to do any work on it. It's due.

    Hey Ghyslain, be a bud and sell Ted your bulb kit. He's been wanting one for ages. Every Christmas he asks Santa for one but all he gets is a lump of coal.

    Pliers for the clips that hold the tank down and the seat pin clips?
    No - pliers to remove the shims from the lifters. Silly looking things. I have a pair as part of the shim kit/tools..

    WAY more involved! I don't have a complete lowseat model to take photos of but if you want, I could pretty much tell you on the phone how to go about most of it. I've done it a few times.

    PM me with you number and a time to call (I've got unlimited calling) and I'll walk you through it.

    Fuel Reservoir Rubber Plate

    I will be removing the three mounting plates that hold the fuel tank cover assembly for the low seat. I suspect I will need to heat the residual foam stuck to the fuel tank. I know about the dental floss or fishing line tricks. Heat seems to always work very well.

    Then I need to reinstall the rubber plate (that's how BMW describes it) that protects the standard seat from rubbing against the fuel tank. What adhesive product (must be non-permanent and ultimately removable) would you guys recommend or have you used in the past for this task?

    I picked up a tube of the automotive product Gloozit: http://www.nlsproducts.ca/gloozit.html

    While most pads are probably installed with non-removable adhesive, it does make sense to use a removable adhesive. But I don't have any experience with any.

    Worst case, it's in an area that is always covered with SOMETHING (lowseat pad or standard "plate").
