    NAV VI updates

    Well, it was not a trouble free experience. Since it was going to take several hours and it was past bed time, I chose to leave the computer on, let the program run, and finish up in the AM like I do when Bill Gates sends me 23 updates that will take 6 hours to run. In the AM I return to my devise and it appears things are still down loading? Hmmm I wait and watch for a couple of hours and no progress on the thyme remaining or % of mission accomplished. I call Gar men. Oh, there may have been an inter ruption in your down load. Sure enough, sheet didn't go smoothly and the process quit mid process. I had to re boot, restart, and re try. In about a half an hour I think I have an update. Have yet to take the new outfit for a ride to see if all is well. THANKS Bill for the advise and encouragement to get er dun.

    NAV VI updates

    Thanks Bill, Installing version 6.14.20 as I type. Says it could take 2 hours. If a person actually read all the terms of service and other disclosures, it could take all day.

    Dealer issue

    Yep Told my dealer the same thing. Take your time, do it properly and if it costs another hour or two, I am happy to pay for a job properly done. And they still managed to damage the bike. So I have given up and simply don't use them anymore.

    There you go..I didn't know the difference. I try OpenMapChest the next time and see how it goes. The late reply is due to me having been away for work. I just got back.

    While we're on the subject... I don't see drive shaft R&R on the reprom. Am I missing it? Anyone have a link to a how to on this?
  7. Yes, seats are standard height.

    I went through the same thing when Bad started to mean Good. I guess I've led a more sheltered life than I thought...
  9. Half the price of a BMW replacement. Any one here tried one? Any thoughts?

    ‘04 aux lights.

    Kruuuzn. Thanks for the yellow/white conspicuity feedback. Yup, yellow/amber seems to be the way to go for being conspicuous during the daytime, white at night. One advantage to the Clearwater Darla is that the yellow/amber lens cover is "quickly" removable if you end up riding at night. I'll have to look back at the post by littlejohn on the 3 circuit harness. I've completely forgotten about it. My plan (I think) is to mount lights to the brake calipers. Let me know what you come up with on the lights. Check out this thread on bmwmoa for yet more perspective. Seems like the Clearwater are top of the line, closely followed by the Denali and then the others from everything I read. The 1100 doesn't have CANbus so any of the light controversy advantages of CANbus are irrelevant to the 1100. I don't know about the 1150. Also, check out this Denali page on the D2 which allows you to change the beam pattern from spot, flood and hybrid. Seems like flood is best for daytime conspicuity. Since I'm primarily a daytime rider, changing the beam pattern is not important to me. Just sayin' Best Miguel

    So today was a bit long. We got started late cause Chris wanted to hide in his tent till 9am and I always wanted to use quarters to pay for a shower. Hitting the road at 10:15 limited our destination choices..I thought...incorrectly
  15. Is the seat a standard height seat. As I'm a big guy. 6-4 and 240.. 07 RT' Thanks, Mel

    Gearbox and Final Drive Viscosity/Type

    Seems a lot of what gets sold is LS. Is there a problem using it?

    Gearbox and Final Drive Viscosity/Type

    To achieve the 180 mL final drive oil fill I use a 60 mL syringe designed for dispensing measured quantities of oil for 2-cycle oil-fuel mix and a hose like what was shown in the picture above. Three shots does the job.

    My 07 has 100,000 mi and I've never seen any deposit of any kind on my speed sensor. Never seen any in the oil I drained either. Only a very little amount of 'mud' on the drain plug screw.

    Friday June 21: Jalama Beach!

    I worked in a VERY integrated environment for 36yrs, and in fact there were some time periods where I was the only white male in the office. One of my coworkers eventually (and affectionately) started calling me white guy. "Hey white guy!" Anyway, for those of you not hip to the urban lingo, here you go :

    Excited Chatter Thread

    You gonna bungee that shop vac on the back seat.
  22. After I bought these I found out that my bike already had lowering links for the stock footpegs. Adding these along with the lowering links was too much and I think I would have had clearance issues at max lean. Bottom line is the stock peg height is too high IMO (I'm 6'-2") and lowering them provides much more comfort on longer rides. Dan
