    Has anyone tried to pair a Schuberth SRC system with the BMW radio on the RT? Is that possible?

    No it's not possible. I had the same problem and you will need to return it to your BMW dealer and buy the bmw unit, about $20.00 more. My dealer didn't realize it wouldn't work either. As you found out if you have the NAV IV gps it will match up with the SRC and you can program your Blue tooth cell phone through the gps to work also but the BMW radio system is not compatable through Blue tooth with the SRC.

    Not that I'm aware of. Talk to your dealer or contact www.Revzilla.com They are a great source of info. They clued me in on the SRC that my dealer sold me.

    The early model RT's are the bikes the engineer intended it to be. Right before the guy's in manufacturing made all the little changes for ease of building them.

    when leaving for work at 0600, my wife couldn't be more insistent on the Buell with a drummer exhaust being pushed to the end of the block before being started, or simply starting the BMW at ANY time and leaving from in front of the apartment with NO issues from her or any neighbor.

    GREAT SHIRT!

    So, who has used a "Booster Plug on their R1200RT? Id not even heard of one till today. Ive not had any trouble with surging but will this improve the performance or gas mileage?

    Who has had any experience?

    Hi Budman,
    I installed a booster plug this summer. Zip tied the temp sensor at the front of the frame. Slightly better partial throttle control, slightly less vibes, and mileage improved from 4.5 to 4.1 l/100km. From my experiences, I'd recommend it. It's made the bike smoother.

    I just installed one, but not the BP, opted for the Accelerator Plug less expensive and does the same trick.
    Slow going seems to no longer be an issue. Pretty smooth throughout the RPM. '05 RT with K&N and full Lazer exhaust.

    I had bascially the same experience with the Booster Plug. I notice it particularly at idle to 1/4 throttle.

    Thanks. I got the tri-color (beige magnesium whale skin, or some other such nonsense) - it's like sliver and tan and brown. I got pretty much everything on it except for TPS and ASC.
