Re: What's On Your LTs Christmas Wish List

Since I tried to clean a ditch out with my 2000 LT and the insurance totaled it. The 2003 I have now cd changer needs a upgrade to a MP3 player. Radio music sucks

Wow, you are surely treating the bike better than yourself! Good for you. Happy wrenching season!

Aw. c'mon: you do not like all the wonderful commercials available to you on your radio, for free?

Here's a hint: satellite radio. I use a Sirius receiver that couples into the bike's radio through what they call "FM relay", an antenna coupler. When on, the sat radio plays through a fixed frequency on the bike's radio, when off - you get the off-the air stuff. I do not use the "through the air" coupling between satellite receiver and bike radio because it is subject to interference from outside sources.
Other possibility is using an auxiliary input to your CD radio to hook up your MP3 player. I added that on my 2001 bike, using the BMW Aux Input kit - you will need to search here if it applies to your year as well.

Re: What's On Your LTs Christmas Wish List

Her needs are pretty simple: a 12k service and a new front tire.

What she doesn't know is that I have some other goodies in mind for her. When she goes in for the 12k service she will see a Stebel air horn and upgraded fuel line quick disconnects in her stocking, hung by the mantle with care!

Re: What's On Your LTs Christmas Wish List

The LT is getting new shoes front and rear, the electrical farkels will be re-routed through a new FZ-1 fuse block.

The GS got hers early as I finished the Centec fuse block install today. What a pain to find a switched power lead on a CAN Bus bike. Then I will install the smartire system I got on e-bay a few months ago.

Hey John, I actually found this after I helped connect up my riding buddies GS for a switched source as well.. I patched into the "running light" at the bottom of the headlight assembly .. But this thing is a pigtail that gives you a neat connection in the same place !!

Re: What's On Your LTs Christmas Wish List

I'm finally getting a pair of Gerbing G3 gloves. I almost bought a pair last year and now I'm glad that I waited for the Microwire. They are currently on backorder until 12/28 and I can't wait.

Re: What's On Your LTs Christmas Wish List

As I am working on Christmas and New Years day, I hope that the weather is good enough to ride to work both days.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

That is pretty neat Bill. But then I wouldn't have had the fun of pulling the fuel tank and tapping into a green "switched power" wire at the chassis controller. Actually it was good to learn how to strip her down.

I too am working both Christmas and New Years nights.

For Christmas? She's getting the most ridiculously decadent gift of all that's made to fit. A cup holder. Made from a superior Bavarian design developed deep inside the Black Forest. Musta been. Why else would it sell for such a price?

Happy Holidays All,

For Christmas Leyna is getting the most sophisticated electronics package ever put on two wheels; A complete, voice controlled package that will integrate all auxillary lighting, communications, navigation, and entertainment into one robust system with handlebar-mounted controls. It will have real-time weather tracking, internet, real-time vehicle status and remote control.

Why would you need handlebar-mounted controls if it is all voice controlled?

Very true John !!
good education for sure !! It was the same with Jim's 05 GS.. now I get to do a similar project on my Italian GS (Aprilia Caponord).. adding the usual goodies.. Stiebel, fuse block, aux lites, aux power outlet, gps power.. But the LT gets scheduled maintenance first.. I have a ton to do once I can work in the garage again. Have a great week !!

I saw the group buy on the K-Bikes forum last summer. The group buy was for a 20% discount if they got 50 or more folks to order. It became closed near the end of August as Russell said too many already! Luckily I signed up early enough to be in. My seat was sent in a week or so ago as my build date is tomorrow!

So that's what my LT (and my backside) is getting for Christmas.
