OBC

There is a on board computer on my 2001 LT as mentioned prior, it must be DOA since it stays lit and just reads PPP
And I don't want the 24/7 lit OBC draining my battery. Can it just be disconnected and not effect the operation of the bike?

K1200LT Tupperware Party

In this sites upper banner area is a drop down item entitled *Technical* - click on that, then click on *Hall of Wisdom* and then review the various threads and posts. I found the above link in the Frame and Bodywork category. HTH, and hope you find your LT a super ride to enjoy.

It would be nice to add that " Technical" is found under the "Tools" Banner.

Yep, sure is. I read the site in the *Classic* format, so don't see the *Full* format. *Tools* banner doesn't show in the Classic format.

Re: OBC

I read the site in Classic and Technical is second from the right in the header next to Log Out. Click it and a drop down menu appears with links, one to Hall of Wisdom.
