I got to say, that after watching this video I am becoming more impressed with the new GS. But my guess is that you won't be able to get one for less than 20K. Time to start saving for the 2nd or 3rd model year when all the bugs are worked out.

LED headlights are optional. At any rate, the big energy consumers are add on lights and heated gear.. The new gen of add on lights are are LED now, so heated gear is the big draw, although newer ones are much more efficient. So, 700 or 900 watt alternator isn't really needed, it saps engine power.

p.s. GPS, radar detector, XM radio, etc.. have minimal draw.

No it isn't its under the front cover go look at the pictures and the blurb. It's the alternator that is at the back above the transmission.

So the alt is on the trans & the clutch is at the front.

That isnt logical

You'd think so.

I still do 6k oil changes, per BMW - not.sure.why the assertion oil changes should be more frequent, that's what the oil filter is for. BUT! - no more Mobil 1 (speaking of.oil threads) since.it.doesn't have friction modifiers needed for the wet clutch. And one does NOT want to put new.plates in this clutch (ka-ching!) from.ruining them.with the wrong oil.

The wedge.motor wet clutch (k12/13) is very spendy, parts alone north of $1600, and some folks seem to run theirs pretty hard, requiring.frequent replacements. I'm at 64k miles and.am not looking forward.to replacing it when.it.wears.out.

At 76k on my dry clutch KRS, the disc showed little wear when the rear main seal let go. At the 56k interval I had.a cam chain jump guard installed on this bike, requiring.pulling the clutch -, this one will not last as long as the dry disc did for.me... YMMV.
