It's your new recommended top speed Bud, BMW saw on here you put Shinkos on the GS. It's just an advisory, I wouldn't pay that much attention to it. :grin:

 

Seriously, if you had the wheels off recently could be an ABS sensor deal, I think they're related.

Haven't had the wheels off yet.

 

I was wondering if they used the ABS sensor on the front wheel to calculate speed.

 

I will be taking the wheels off to mount the new rubber.

 

See what happens after that's all done.

 

Tires came a couple of days ago and they look really good.

PO never took it over 50 mph.

 

I actually don't remember the PO ever riding under 50.

On the RT at least, the speedo works off the rear wheel speed sensor.

Maybe that's the problem. I haven't been going fast enough for it to register?????? :dopeslap:

BUD WHAT STUCK THE SPEEDO NEEDLE OR THE AVE SPEED DISPLAY?

 

Foot,

 

Don't make me drive down to Dunlap and hurt you! :mad:

 

What in the heck kind of new newfangled bike did you sell me that shows "Average Speed" in the rider display??? I mean, I mean really? :S:S This bike is 10 years newer than any Beemer I've owned. Who would have thought that BMW could be capable of such a thing????

 

 

Where is that little smiley that has a dog with his tail tucked between his back legs and is waling away???????

 

:rofl::rofl::rofl:

 

I'm going back to my corner now.

 

And yes, since I can laugh at myself, the rest of you can laugh at me. :grin:

BTW thanks for giving me the Owners Manual. I guess I will actually have to read it before I make more stupid posts. :dopeslap::dopeslap:

Should we make it a sticky in DIY? In case others are having trouble. :grin: JK, you're a good sport.

Ikarus,

The 96 RT speedo definately work off the front wheel. I just had my speedo/odo unit in the front forks replaced when it quit. odo and speedo run off the same gear at the front axel.
