Ignition switch

anyone have any idea how easy it is to replace part #2 on the list here? Mine is acting up and theres a replacement on ebay from an r12rt which apparently is the same part.

Re: Ignition switch

I guess the trick is getting to those two tiny M3 screws (part #9). You might just have to stick a torch or a hand up there and see for yourself . . .

This link does confirm that the 61 31 7 708 211 part is used on the Slant/4 bikes, as well as the R1200 bikes, and several others.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: Ignition switch

Yep I guess it's going to need a good look around it, perhaps with a mirror
