k1200lt starter relay

Hi all

Have already posted a thread on this forum but wondering if anybody has fitted a auto style (ford?) starter relay to their early LT - mine is ok but it's more preventative than anything. Seen/heard it happen with many k series bm's so l thinking it would be an idea to do the fix now.

Been told to just keep the battery charged (obviously) or buy the upgrade relay for $400 odd dollars and just fix it when/if it happens. Knew that, just wanting to prevent having to fix the problem on the side of the road friggin' around with a dodgey relay.

Bike is a 99 model. Ta, Nick

Re: k1200lt starter relay

Hi ozboxer - this topic was thoroughly covered in the thread begun by BMW_forever on 3/19/16 titled "Starting issues". Don't know how to copy and paste a link to that thread, but you should be able to find it readily by doing a search.

Re: k1200lt starter relay

Have read most/all of the topics related but was hoping someone locally has been there done that in regards to fitting an auto relay. Know the gist of how to do it but not keen to venture out by myself, not at all confident in electrical issues. Know where it's gotta go, know the logic of why/how it works. Dealers say "just buy this part and spend more$$$". They can't really go giving advice on fitting aftermarket items such as these - which is fair enough and as soon as you mention "internet forum" well, you might as well hang up.........

Ta anyway, Nick

from JZ's post and picks in the link, it doesn't look too hard Nick.... I'm not a brilliant mechanic or anything, and I've managed to do a lot of wiring and stuff on my bike that I never dreamed I could do. Just follow instructions carefully step-by-step, and if confused just ask a question on the forum... everyone's really helpful here.
And no, haven't had to do it on my '05
Give it a go!
