    over torqued torx is really hard to say fast, I kinda sorta suspect that not many of 'us' use torque wrenches-whats a good clicky go for these days?

    About $80 for a decent one. I found one on Amazon for $40 that I'm happy with.

    Anyone figure out how to mount an iPhone5 to the new GSW?
    Looking for a nice clean install or mount that is close to the outlet on the right hand side of the dash. I know RAM has a bunch of stuff, what did you do?
    Pics would be great!!

    SO how far away from the dealer are you?

    just curious....for me it will be approx 6 hours so I REALLY hope mine doesn't have too many issues.

    Don't do it unless it's in a big padded and waterproof bag. The vibration will kill your expensive phone if you mount it hard. Been there and done that I am afraid. Clear pouch in the top of a tank bag is perfect or you can buy padded bags with clear covers to go on the bars. Far from a clean install but your phone will live.

    i tried putting my iPhone in my tankbag's clear plastic map pouch this summer and cooked the phone in the desert heat. It recovered, but I kept it in my pocket after that (except at night).

    Yes keeping it in your pocket is probably the best idea of the lot. I rarely consider heat damage living in Scotland, waterproof is more a priority lol.

    I use one of these SlipGrip handlebar mounts for a RAZR Maxx HD, have used for over a year.
    They make them for an iPhone5 to fit if you have the phone in a waterproof case (like a LifeProof): http://www.slipgripcarmounts.com/Using-LifeProof-Cases_c_27768.html

    I've not had any problem with vibration, I don't use a waterproof case because my phone is water resistant and withstands rain no problem.
    They make a couple of different models that attach to the bars and you can spin the phone any direction you want.

    Never a wasted day, just another reason to get out and ride! :D

    Glad to hear it's fixed.

    Most of the day would be spent sitting at the dealers shop and then feeling like a stupid fool for bothering them with something so trivial.

    1.25 inches although it is probably expressed better in millimeters.

    Has anyone come up with a good way to mount the genuine BMW LED auxiliary headlights with the Touratech Crash Bar extensions. Got mine yesterday then mounted the Bars last night & realized they mount where the BMW mount for the LEDs is so I had to remove the mount. I just rigged them up temporarily & the dealer will look at a solution but if someone already has a good solution it may save some time & swearing. :D

    Try PIAA bracket 602-74000 7/8" to 1.25" univ light mount. It works well for me on my TT upper CBs.

    No difference in riding them normally.

    And no, I haven't switched to an '14. the dealer is keeping the 13 as a test bike atm. But 14's heve been delivered for clients.
