When I turn on the key and the flap opens and closes during the systems check it makes a whistling noise... I’m wondering if some water worked its way in to the cable mechanism and is causing the parts to bind slightly... better safe than sorry if they are offering under warranty!

When I only had my F800GS my dealership was perfectly fine, but now that I’ve supplemented it with my new R1200GS they have stepped up the proactivity... Does BMW have separate SLAs for midrange and high end models?

They realise that a large percentage of people that buy the 1200 change them every 1-2 years on average, so will look after you more!

Wow, we must be rich!

Not me man, if mine works right and continues to do so I'll keep it for 100,000 miles!

They seem to give people a new bike every year in some circumstances

Anyone know where the plugin points are for throttle syncing are, looks like RH one is just behind throttle body in the head but cannot see anything on the LH side. Have one pipe discolouring more than the other so just want to check.

Throttle sync? Don't know that you can. It's a fly by wire bike. No cables to adjust. No idle air bypass screws. That said...

There are two tubes that go to the right side head near the throttle body and one that goes to the left side head. I assume that one of the two on the right is to purge the US mounted evap canister. Don't know what the other left and right tubes are for (or where they go). They could be what you are looking for.

Good point, hadn't thought about that. One less thing to adjust unless you have the BMW computer I guess.

Thanks

Throttles are synced automatically by the computer on the GSW.

I believe they cycle through the full range of motion during the self-check when you switch on the key to calibrate/sync the stepper motors... However, my dealership mentioned they require recalibration every (I believe) 24,000 miles which is done by connecting to the BMW service computer... I can ask next Saturday when it’s in to service the exhaust flap mechanism...

Those two tubes are for making swirl in the intake air,
one of the things that improve the combustion and make them get rid of the secondary spark-plug.
