RobT Posted March 20, 2007 Share Posted March 20, 2007 I was riding my 2000 R1100RT home up the Sacramento Delta Saturday, stopped at winery to pick up a bottle, and after dismounting noticed that my entire tail light/indicator assemply was hanging by the wires!! Rather than mess with it on the road and break an expensive (is there any other kind?) BMW part, I strapped it back in place and got home uneventfully. I saw the screws (bolts?) leading from the assembly to the tail, and saw the holes into which they fit. My concern was that it appears I have to take the assembly cover off to access the screw/bolt heads. Question 1: Is there a trick or "best" way to get the cover off without cracking/chipping it? Or is it a matter of just prying it off? Question 2: I had my 24,000 mile service done by a dealer a couple weeks ago, but put over 700 miles on the bike prior to this occurring. Is this something that happened due to shoddy reinstallation of the assembly (assuming it had to be removed during the service) or is there another cause? Question 3: Ever hear of this happening before? I appreciate any information you can provide. Link to comment
