Seriously guys type in Wethead in Google images and see what kind of pictures come up, then try the same for Wasserboxer. Wethead doesn't make any sense at all if you ask me; at least Camhead made sense

Actually my suggestion was Woxer (pronounced Voxer), but I don't really care, just wish we could get back to some real talk about the bike itself.

Now again , if you combine this chart that showed up in BMW literature



and then use same chart for older model from Web bike world



and then

first correct mistakes that they did by swithing labels on axis ( thanks EJ 92606 .. )

then

adjust for diferent spans of rpm , adjust the scale and do it just a bit more precisely than I tried before

it looks something like this




Me like it !!!

Maybe we can come to a compromise and call it a LIQhead.

Ordered 2013 GS-HP2 Enduro for sale.

I just ordered a new GS 3rd on the list at San Jose BMW . That said: Anyone looking for an HP2? New Ohlins and fork springs (Aftershocks set up for 250lb rider), custom triple clamps, under-seat tank, Highway dirt bike switches, electrical panel with spares to front of bike (wired thru HWDB switches with LED) Full exhaust, skid plate, new foam filters, stainless steel kickstand mount. some new plastic, new engine guards, about 6K miles looks great, have all the old parts that go with it. asking around 14K in San Jose CA PM me if interested.

You guys are hung up on the three letter prefix. AIR, OIL, HEX, and CAM are all nouns. WET is an adjective.
Therefore, my vote is for WATERhead
