    Scott, Not canbus on my K. That's a complication I know nothing about. Have not had to climb that learning curve yet. SuperBright does sell LED's that are CANBUS rated and several little black boxes like "LED Warning Canceller for H10 LED Motorcycle Headlight Bulb Conversion Kit". http://uperbrightleds.com/moreinfo/flashers-load-resistors/led-warning-canceller-for-h10-led-motorcycle-headlight-bulb-conversion-kit/3999/8637/ You might try their support line. I've talked to them several times and always a good experience. Let us know what you learn!!

    Cars..

    ^^ I’ll take a WAG. $42,500.
  8. My 2010 is like this also. Was the Miami BMW dealers personal bike, so I doubt any plugs were switched.

    PERFECT. Mods need to add this to the RT Tech library. 👍 This may be a dumb question, but the K12RS bikes ran from 1997-2005? Does your bike have CANBUS running the electrical systems? My concern with anything that I play with, electronically on my RT, will end up throwing codes because CANBUS conflicts. Just wondering if your wiring had to dodge that hurdle. Thanks. Edit: The vendor sells a resister designed to mimic filament bulb resistance to fool the computer. I may have to add this.

    Transmission Seal Replacement

    Also, isn't there a proper installation depth for that seal (not just pushed in until it bottoms out)? You may know that already, but wanted to call it to your attention. I seem to remember findng discussion about this when I was replacing my slave cylinder, and contemplating changing this seal...ultimately deciding against it because it looked like it was going to be a real pain working in such a tight space.

    05 R1200RT Hesitation Under Hard Acceleration

    I had what sounds like the same issue in 2017. My mechanic switched coils, (did not replace), did other things and sent me on my way. Problem didn't go away. I took it back again and he replaced the coils, upper or lower or both I'm not sure, but my '05 RT has ren perfectly since. Having to do everything, checks, returns, retries and finally wasn't cheap but since I'm not a mechanic, and he's really good, getting it finally fixed was worth the cost.

    Transmission Seal Replacement

    Afternoon Rick Best process (least risk) is to take the transmission apart & drive it out from the front. (not what you wanted to hear) I usually use a long small drill bit with a dedicated depth stop (to limit drill-through to JUST the seal shell thickness, no more). I usually drill two opposed holes so I can work the seal out evenly. Then use a slide hammer with a small sheet metal screw welded to the end. (just screw it in a couple of threads then work the slide hammer). If you can find (or make) long enough small diameter sheet metal screws you can probably pry it out against the rear case face.

    Christmas Tree

    Reminds me of when I stored a beautiful 6” Colt Python and a SPAS 12, both of which I was asked if I wanted to buy them at $300 each, but alas, I hadn’t the money for either of them at the time

    Need new battery

    I replaced the battery for my 2016 RT with the one above in mid 2020. It is the same physical size as the OEM battery and has worked great so far.

    Need new battery

    This is a link to what I posted over on BMWMOA R1200RTW Battery Replacement The quick link to a battery that can be delivered this week to you is this one that I've used with great success. $54.80 YT20CH-BS from Amazon

    Need new battery

    Thanks folks....been trying to hunt down the Yuasa for my bike.. YTX20ch-bs. None to be found. I wrote Yuasa and within about 5 minutes they wrote back...amazing....here is what they had to say. We are running behind on making batteries and the YTX20CH They did say the YTX16-BS is available. The difference is the 20 has 270 cca and the 16 has 230. I wonder how much that would matter? I guess Covid hit the battery industry too. Still hunting.

    Christmas Tree

    It might be 9 feet... The door behind it is cut down, shorter than standard, so it creates a bit of an optical illusion.
  26. Published in: Gear Over the last several years, airbag technology has made the descent from the Olympian pinnacles of motorsport to the grubby hands of mere mortals. As it relates to motorcycles, airbag tech was developed for racing on pavement, and the consumer versions of most units focused on street riders. However, Klim has teamed up with In&Motion to create the AI-1 Airbag Vest, powered by data from the 2021 Dakar Rally, with both street and adventure algorithms. One of the first things you’ll do with the AI-1 Airbag is set it up with the In&Motion app to register the module. The application and registration process is easy, although it does feel like an extra expense after purchasing the vest. If you choose to outright purchase the module for $399, you receive a two-year warranty and standard support service. If you opt for a subscription for $12 per month, or $120 per year, there are a few extra perks such as an unlimited warranty, an option to trade up for a new box after three years, VIP support service, and the ability to cancel or suspend service at any time. After set-up, the app checks for firmware updates and updates the module as needed. You can set up the module to connect directly to your Wi-Fi network and update itself anytime it’s plugged in, too. Charging the module does need to be done while it’s disconnected from the vest, but it only takes about three hours to charge via micro-USB and lasts 25 hours when riding, or about 15 days in stand-by mode. The app is used to change modes between Street and Adventure on the fly. Unfortunately it does require a data connection to operate, but the module will remember the mode last used, even if turned on and off. If I know I’ll be in an area without signal, I set the mode ahead of time. Adventure differentiates from Street mode by generally allowing for more fun in the form of additional vibration, reduced traction, catching a little air, or slow/stopped tip-overs without inflating. In&Motion states the Adventure mode is for use on drivable tracks, so if it’s not considered a passable track for most road-going vehicles, it might be too intense for the airbag. In the event of a deployment, the AI-1 Airbag expands within 60 milliseconds to provide protection for your spine, neck, chest, and abdomen. Afterward, users can check the vest’s bladder for leaks and swap out the new cartridge if needed. Each vest is good for up to three deployments before replacement. Aside from being just an airbag, the vest incorporates a CE Level 1 back protector for safety, even if the vest doesn’t inflate. Once your regular jacket is zipped up, the AI-1 becomes easy to forget, most of the time. The vest is an extra layer, featuring a large air bladder, so it can add some warmth by way of reduced breathability, but Klim did a great job of incorporating panels of breathable stretch fabric and mesh to allow air movement around and under the vest while in motion. However, you do need to make sure there is just over five inches (13 cm) of room or stretch in your jacket to accommodate expansion of the airbag, In&Motion provides a guide on their website to measure your body and jacket to ensure proper fitment. I’ve paired the vest with all of my jackets after removing the back protectors and they all had enough room. Overall, if you’re looking to add an extra cushion of protection the AI-1 is a cutting-edge way to do so. It’s lightweight and more comfortable than expected, and versatile for use on and off pavement. Klim.com MSRP: AI-1 vest—$399.99 | In&Box module subscription—$12/month or $120/year, or purchase for $399 PROS: Adventure detection mode for use off pavement Comfortable enough to forget when wearing Continuous automatic firmware updates CONS: Extra cost for module purchase or subscription feels like two purchases Unable to reach power button while wearing View the full article

    Scott, 1) "Spot: Red" is just "red". The K (Kelvin) numbers are just for the "white" lights, to denote the "warm" (yellow), Natural, and "cool" (slightly bluish). 2) Yes, red surface mount strips: 3) The wiring is very simple: just splice in to the brake light and ground wire with the controller (red to brake light wire and black to ground). I used the "water resistant" crimp connectors. Also put a dab of silicone sealant in the ends of the white sheath where the wires enter and leave to keep moisture out. The wiring schematic looks a little messy but that's just because of my crappy drafting skills. It could be better but not by me. Sorry. My handiwork from 3 years ago: I put in the blade connectors in case a modulator failed so I wouldn't have to disassemble the entire rear end of the bike again.
