    Riding 2005 R12GS, staying in A'dam til Sat morning -- or another day perhaps, at hostel near Rembrandt-Plein.

    Need garage that can check and possibly repair slow leak in front tire. This used machine didn't come w tire repair kit....
    Would also like to swap out the micro switch for clutch -- I have one -- but cannot loosen tiny 2mm allen head and don't want to damage it.

    Any ideas welcomed.

    And any ADV'r who wants to meet for coffee or whatever (museums day tomorrow), give a ring.

    My U.K. CEL IS +44 7593 328806

    Neither problem sounds like it needs BMW specific training or tools.
    Most decent bike shops should be capable of dealing with them should the above fail.

    Right. MotorCity would not do tire due to their reluctance to mess w ABS (???) if had to take wheel off, so going to BMW today......
