It's hard to tell where the cables are supposed to go with all the ABS plumbing in the way.
Mine has always done that aswell and I don't have ABS, but I do have bar risers.

Alarm maybe


Looking at the diagrams I'm actually thinking it might be where you plug in the police blue lights and siren

I've often wondered if one can order these by just saying the partnumbers and if the store will get them and actually sell them to you

Or one of these maybe

BMW aux socket

Alarm setup

Navigation

BMW computer

It says 93,5 db on mine (with restrictor in)

Question Exhaust sizes...

I *think* the later two-spark motor has a slightly larger exhaust header diameter... but I don't have the numbers handy. Means the pipes from a single-spark don't fit a two-spark and vice versa...

Yes, but nothing a muffler shop can't easily fix.

Good idea to use a rubber grommet if you want.

This was just cut up with a sharp knive and went through several blades to dovetail the front into the two sides. Now the whole front end only has two bolt holes. I reused the metal body panel fasteners.









Post or PM me if you need more info.
The black stripes on your clear windshield, is it paint or some sort of a sticker?

All paint. Rattle can. I had to paint around the headlight because as another FF pointed out it reflected back on me. That's also why I made the thin aluminum light shroud.

Thanks, Wow, That's a great paint job.
I'm too fucking lazy, so I might just use those cheesy carbon fiber stickers and be done with it.

Did you have to paint both sides? I'm having problem with the ligth glowing all over the clear shield. The throw of the beam is fine, but the glow is distraction/dangerous I'm not sure painting around it would help.

Actually I made sure to paint the edges. I used to have a big windshield before dropping the bike... and the edges glowed and drove me crazy at night.

So make sure you either tape them or paint. I used semi gloss enamel on the front and flat on the back side. It's actually pretty easy if you just do really light coats, but to each his own.

By the way, your bike is going to be very cool too.

I get impatient too.

i don't know, rob. Looks like it might add a pound or two, way up high. I'd have just cut it all off and just made sure not to hang my ass so far back...
And if memory serves, you really need a basket mounted on the rear fender to catch errant bevys falling from your pack.

Plus 1 for that sweet pink fender set-up.

Its funny, seeing the "two hour suspension change" "just get it done and go riding" guy go to such extent for more 1203.

The lazy man's way.
Two bungees and an extra gallon (saws not required).

I'm gonna have to track you kids down after this years DV ride, see all the cool mods I can do to the poor GS (and my dogsled).

Actually weighs less than what came off. Need more fuel for the KotW. And actually I was thinking I might put beer in it.

If you like my wife's pink bike then don't miss the Thomas the Train bike also.

This really hasn't taken much time at all. I always need something to do while drinking beer when I'm stuck watching the kids.

I might be crazy, but I don't think the spare gas container and the chain saw will still be on the bike after a few hundred miles through Mojave, DV or Baja.

Rob is tired. Double posts are signs of complete brain melt-down. Not to be a cheeleader for his insanity the fender tank will be full only for the first 1/2 hour the way he rides anyway, then it will just be a big hollow ass-rest.

Filled with gas or beer. 1/2 hour supply.

I want one.

Oh I just noticed this will be my 500th post.

I'm growing up so fast now....
