I'll be damned! You were able to get some grip on those button bolts? I thought it'd be pretty tough.

I put blue Permatex on both of the tamper-resistant bolts. So, someone might be able to get 'em. But, it's gonna' take a little time and strength (I would think).

Those were my thoughts, exactly.

There's a hardware store, down the road, that has a great selection of metric stuff. But, I chose just to use the supplied bolts, as I had already run outta' patience, and just wanted to get the damn things on.

Why only one bolt with the weird head?

Got mine off with a set of multi grips to fit a tool box.

Bought a set of proper keys to tighten it back up on refitting.

(After I wire buffed all the marks form the multi grips)

Also has a bag in front so you can really forget where you put stuff.


+1 Stays in place very well. Undo the front snaps and slide it back onto the seat for fueling.

This bought a smile to my face....

An extract from this new BMW GS review. http://www.pistonheads.com/xforums/t...0BMW%20R1200GS

The chassis is also new with the swingarm redesigned and the single-sided hub moved to the other side of the bike along with the exhaust. BMW says as well as making wheel changes easier, this also means that when you push the bike you don't lean against the pipe as generally people push from the left.

Obviously so much of a problem they had to adjust the design for it.

Worlscrosser stickers

Iridemotorbikes, sorry to only arrive late at this discussion but IMO your tank decals are fitted wrongly in that you have them fitted on the opposite sides of the tank to how Yamaha intended.

You are correct that they are different to all of the pre-production photos that were issued by Yamaha, such as the one below.



You can see that this bike has the longer and thinner tank stripes that run down almost as far as the top of the seat. You can also see that the 'screen decal is a one piece design rather than the three pieces that you got in your kit in that the red pinstripe that runs along the base of the screen continues below the screen brackets.

I got exactly the same sticker kit as you did when I got my Worldcrosser and as you can see my tank stickers look totally different to yours.



If you mentally move my sticker across the tank to the other side you will see that it matches where you have put yours, with the point turning in towards the centre line of the tank.

Few model reviews come as close to this in regards of complete brand fellatio.

Used to be called Explorer, now Ranier.

Like Pluric said, very sturdy zippers, big teeth and pulls. The one I had before this had smaller zippers and after about 100K the main zip finally gave out. Use a KLR tank bag liner (small trash bag) and it'll be waterproof too (except for the outside pockets).
