More than I’d like to say
Replaced a leaking Counterbalance seal and shipped my ABS module to ModuleMasters for motor rebuild. The ABS was out when I bought the bike so having it work now when I ride off road is wonderful!
Quick follow up- had the brakes flushed, service indicator reset and the required VA state inspection performed by my local dealer for <$70. All done till next time!
That is crazy cheap. Is your mechanic a member of your family? State inspection alone is close to this amount around here.
Changed a burned out low beam H7 bulb. Cover was stuck on like crazy. Ten years of dust and dried out gasket, I suppose. Put a little bit of silicone spray on the gasket, now it’s smooth.
I know- I was prepared for higher. Actually it was around $50 as I had some dealer "loyalty" points from a previous purchase that I applied to the bill.
Was thinking about buying a GS-911, but makes me rethink if it would be worth it to me since I'd probably mostly use it for the flush and resetting the service indicators.
I'll have to calculate what the actual service cost me- bought all the consumables from Beemer Boneyard, already had all the appropriate tools and the only "investment" I made was JVB's video (critical purchase). I'm guessing that the whole thing (minus JVB's video) to include the dealer's cost was maybe $125.
So.. this wasn’t today, but yesterday. I put about 500miles on what most likely will be the last opportunity I’ll get to ride this year before they salt the roads. It was 34° For the first Few hours until the sun burned off the fog.
Rode it today!
That indeed may be the key explanation - you experienced issues which somewhat can be duplicated thus require updates... More often than not, someone would arbitrarily request updates just because the updates are out while there's no particular reason for it - in that case, dealer may decide to attach charge as it isn't a warrantied...
It does pay to be on a good terms with a dealer...
$43 amounts to plenty of good eats or drinks at Starbucks... Or ice-cream for those not into Starbucks, no??
I Rode mine to work.
Ya.. I have payments too
Front and rear facing Original GoPro Hero's.
so about 5 Starbucks coffees then?
Installed duel permanent adjuster for heated gear. The connector will be tucked away under the seat when not in use.
Does the adjuster simply poke through or did you make additional modifications to make it fit?
GAjet - did you make those pannier carrying straps yourself or buy them?
I had to drill holes.. the plastic overlaps right there and makes it to thick for for the adjuster so the hole on the bottom is large enough for the nut to pass. Then the hole on the upper plastic is cut to size as per instructions.
Ordered straps made to my specs from: https://www.strapworks.com/default.asp
I wanted excess material to strap stuff down on top if need be.
Once I installed the straps and had my spacing, I had a local cobbler sew the handle material together for me.
They carry the thermo-plastic handles too: https://www.strapworks.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=handle&Search.x=0&Search.y=0
