    Scarning, today...
    Having scratched my head for a while, before Ian Hartley on UKGSer did some sterling investigative work - here is a fusebox schematic for the R1150GS Twinspark Servo/ABS. You can print it, laminate it and stick it onto the inside of your fusebox lid as a reminder. Remember to select 'Print actual size'

    [​IMG]

    The Single-spark has fuses 8, 9 and 10 as spares, but is otherwise identical...

    I've added generic grip puppies, lead shot in the handlebars, had the TB/cables sync'd, valves adjusted, and still have seemingly lots of vibration, mostly 4500rpm to redline. It might be all in my head, but it seems to keep getting worse.

    Obviously this is the wrong forum thread to discuss, but I know its been an ongoing topic of conversation. SO, any links and meaninful input here is probably entirely helpful to all boxer engine owners.

    95. What's the best way to connect audio to your helmet headset? Wired or bluetooth?

    The same pegs also fit the R1150 and R1200. They are all the same.

    This needs to stay near the top, or sticky.

    I'm surprised this is not stickied. As a professional lurker this thread has helped me immensely.

    How about adding a thread to this on "how much fluid should I put in my final drive?"

    When I changed my FD fluid last year (2009 12GS) I couldn't find a consensus on how much to use. Opinions seemed to vary from 180ml to 200ml to 220ml. I ended up putting in 200ml and haven't had a problems (not yet, at least!) :deal
