Waterproof BMW Hall plates (HES plates)

Hi all,

Because almost all of the BMW R 850/1100/1150 bikes suffer because of a HES (Hall effect sensors) plate failure, I cam up with this design that will never fail again, meaning that you will never get stranded because of this. You can pressure wash the bike all you want or ride in the rain, after fitting this part. For GS riders, river crossing will never be a problem, unless you allow water inside the engine

The price for an unit is 220$ , shipping is included, worldwide, and the warranty for this part is the lifetime of the bike. It replaces the 12112306137 and 12117673277 OEM code parts from BMW. For the 1150 bikes, it's a direct swap. Unfortunately, for the 1100 and pre-1999 bikes, I have not been able to find the right connector for the bike's harness, so you will have to solder the wires to your failed plate connector. For this reason, the price is a little lower.

Here's a video of it working:
