Never a wasted day, just another reason to get out and ride!

Glad to hear it's fixed.

No matter how you shake it out it's a wasted day.

Most of the day would be spent sitting at the dealers shop and then feeling like a stupid fool for bothering them with something so trivial.

1.25 inches although it is probably expressed better in millimeters.

It is inside the switch housing.

BMW LED auxiliary headlights mounted with Touratech Crash Bars Extns

Has anyone come up with a good way to mount the genuine BMW LED auxiliary headlights with the Touratech Crash Bar extensions. Got mine yesterday then mounted the Bars last night & realized they mount where the BMW mount for the LEDs is so I had to remove the mount. I just rigged them up temporarily & the dealer will look at a solution but if someone already has a good solution it may save some time & swearing.

Try PIAA bracket 602-74000 7/8" to 1.25" univ light mount. It works well for me on my TT upper CBs.

30 min to the dealer (on foot), or 5 min by bike

Anybody out there?
No difference in riding them normally.

And no, I haven't switched to an '14. the dealer is keeping the 13 as a test bike atm. But 14's heve been delivered for clients.

It is a tapered bar. The center is 28mm and the ends are roughly 22mm or 7/8.

Are you sure about the 28mm? 28mm is 1 1/8 inch. And the new bars are 1 1/4 inches as far as I know.

Nope. You're right. I just pulled out the calipers and measured the bars. they are 32mm or 1.25" in the center.

1 1/4" on mine; I had to return Rox risers that were the wrong size - even though I eye-balled the bars and risers and told the parts fellow that they didn't look to be the right size. So, many are unfamiliar with the new GSW specs - even those who sell bike specific parts.
