John's comments on the loose 5mm bolt is valid as we discovered late on Friday evening a
few years back at the Spring Training Camp at the Ironhorse Lodge.
After spending a day running around 6,000 to 7,000 RPM over the Cherohala Skyway
) looks like I rattled a this bolt loose. After a few electrical
checks and referring to the proper wiring diagram - John had an ah ha moment. We went
right to the bolt and found it was loose. I was riding around for 1/2 a day flashing all the
lights everywhere - did not effect the starting or any other electronics.
Make no mistake this bolt is hard to get to and you will need to take the battery out and look
forward down towards the front of the bike with a flashlight. Then you will need a long
extension allen wrench with a rounded tip to get at the bolt - at an angle!!
BTW it pays to have a friend like John and fellow BMW rider / all around good solver of all
things mechanical - who else travels the highways and byways with a compete set of wiring
diagrams for the K1200LT!!!
