New rear pads, cleaned up the sliders and adjusted pedal travel.
Bad editing, I guess. I meant to say that I'll try to charge it overnight or longer, using a charger more powerful than the BMW grey box 1 amp charger. A fellow inmate suggested 6 amps to try to recover the battery full capacity. I have to investigate further.

Front brake system bleed including the ABS unit. I had been putting this off because it seemed daunting, but it really wasn't that bad. Fortunately, my arms and body are long enough to bleed the left side caliper by myself, but after doing it this way, decided to order some speed bleeders for the next go round. All my clutch and brake bleed points will have them.
BTW, I've always wondered, how much brake fluid is actually in the system? Is that in the specs? I typically use a full small bottle when I bleed the rear and the ABS, and almost two small bottles when I did the fronts. It's my understanding that DOT4 can't be saved after opening, so it's going to be wasted whether I run it through the system or not, right?
I am 6' and wear a Shoei Neotec. The seat on LC is at low/low (front/rear). Without this screen, it was not as quiet as I would like it behind the screen - especially on motorways.
This is an MRA X-Creen Tour version. Got it from https://www.bikehps.com/ . Comes with two kinds of attachment. One is what you see in the pic - just clip on top of the screen. The other attachment - you need to drill the screen - which I will do later next week when I have the time. Comes with a template in the packet which makes it easy to drill and align.
TPMS system is temperature adjusted. The delta was likely due to temperature.
Well, I didn't do this today, but I did ride over a half mile long sheet of ice. It was "exciting". The kind of exciting where you pray to stay upright.
That I understood. It was the difference between the 2 sensors that I now know is an indicator of the battery going soft.
EX- I put 39 psi in both wheels. The fresh batteries show 37 in both sensors. Prior to failure the readings would be 29/36. The front would die off and then about 15 miles or so later the rear would go out.
My point being the lower than expected reading is an indicator to get your batteries ordered in for replacement.
No boring pics but yesterday froze my ass off in the garage putting pigtails for a trickle charger on both bikes.
Next up, Skene lights front and back.
Can the TPMS system be turned off completely? I have a 16 GSA, I take extra care with my tire pressures and don't necessarily "need" the TPMS. I would rather not have to deal with the system at all if it can be disabled.
Just remove the sensors next time you change your tires and send them my way...
TPMS saved my bacon a couple times (alerting me I was losing pressure in my front wheel while doin 80mph on the fwy) however I do have a gripe with it.. I ride offroad at about 30psi, I have the "Enduro RDC" option on but I still get the angry red LED when I'm <32 psi on the fwy in Road mode. What I want is a "I KNOW!" button that would set the new baseline and only alert me if the pressure drops below what I say is the new normal... a man can dream.
Coded my "keyless" key to my new Givi Trekker 58L box lock.
My '14 GSW is the first bike I've owned with TPMS, and I felt like you for quite a while.
And then one day while blasting back road twisties, a flashing red light on the display caught my attention as it announced rapidly decreasing rear tire pressure. By the time I got stopped, the rear was totally flat from a big nail that had ripped into it. While I'll stop short of saying that TPMS saved my bacon, it definitely gave me advance warning so I could begin slowing before I headed into a sharp turn at speed with a flat tire.
After that event, I'm just fine having TPMS along for the ride.
How did you do that? Is the givi keyless as well or did you take the core out and adjust the "fingers" in the lock core?
The latter. Thought about maybe using a remote solenoid from a door lock but codeing that to the fob woukd be tricky. Too much clutter too.

Purchased it! 2017 GSA
That was at the shop. The tech used that to fill up the bike. It wasn't enough.
