Maybe I’m gullible, but perhaps the OP was asking a real question. For me I know I did way more foolish riding on my wife’s old scooter than I do on my RT. So, for me, the type of bike makes a...

No, it's not exhaust oil stink. I am able to see the oil as it drips down the left side of the engine (to the rear of the belt cover) and has the front left side of the block and pan fins all oil...

I've not torn into the bike far enough to know what is on top of the engine and is hidden by the fuel tank. It is a 08 R1200RT.

I already ran into a dispute with the dealer about a cracked...

The first few stops during the day I can smell the oil leak. Once the engine is at operating temperature, I no longer smell oil. Did your 800 behave as such?

Set up: Return trip number 4 or 5 to locate and repair an oil leak, on a one year old bike, that has had a slow leak since new. Never enough volume to drip on the ground but enough to wet the engine...

My 08, RT was doing the same things after the dealer balanced the throttle bodies at idle. It was a loose connection at the throttle body where the retainer clip had snapped.

Why two bikes? Hell, together they weight less than I do. My 650 hauls my butt and gear just fine.

Two bikes doubles the expense of ownership and fuel, and what I consider the biggest problem,...

I’ve got a F650GS (07) and a R1200RT. My kids (high school age and size) are more comfortable on the back of the 650 than they are on the 1200.

The only numbers I find are:

male connector Delphi 8A

female connector D5197 top line, J2397 bottom line

That is the best I can make out on the pieces, but I'm pretty sure that is correct.
