- true dat the Clymers for K1200LT has electrical schematic pages included? I had an OEM schematic that I didn't use for 12 years, so either donated it to CCR or gave it to someone (CRS, ya know!!). Nowwwww - need one. Have ole Toad tore down to practically just the frame and wiring harness - chasing smoking wiring somewhere. I have two OEM shop manuals, neither of which include vital electric stuff, so if the Clymers has a useful schematic, I'm ordering one. TIA for checking yours to lemme know.

They are pretty close Dick and should be fine for your needs. I find them a bit rough on the eyes compared to the BMW ones but they do show the "big picture" better in the Clymer. So you are still chasing that smoking wire huh?

Hi, John - yeppir, still goin' colorblind trying to chase smoke and wire!! Had one issue isolated to the dash harness - bought a replacement harness and changed that out and should be good to go once I find where else I may have issues in ole Toad's main harness. Bought a main harness (I think I said that before?) and Bill and I are using that as a clone check between it and ole Toad's. So far, we've found a coupla things that don't jive, butt am continuing into the deep unknown!! Took the Motronic out to provide working room to continuity check wiring to all points relative to the front of the bike. Slow going, cuz it's hot in my garage after about 11:00 am. Butt, we're getting there. A good chance to replace a lot of the friction taping of wire bundles - tape wuz losing it's functionality. BTW - I do think I'm gonna have some of the alarm wiring (Toad doesn't have any) that the purchased harness has and I plan on sending that to you when I verify that's what it is.
Been at this project since Mar 20th - getting lack-of-riding fever!!! Bout ready to steal the 8 yr old neighbor's skateboard ---- then end of school came along and he's on it all the time!! :mad:

BTW - Bill and I have been talking about setting up a conference call with you one of these days - at your convenience - if we get severely stumped and are not having success in birddogging ole Toad's problem(s). Would really appreciate the opportunity to do that, and if it's ok, we'll give you plenty of notice - again, at your convenience. Just knowing that you're in the trenches with the wrenches is reassuring if we get to that point. Best always, John. Have a great visit at IH Lodge on the 4th. :)

And Dave Beck - thanks for the quick response today. Told me what I needed to know! :)

Dick,

If copying the Clymers pages for you would be a help, I,ll gladly do it and send to you.
Thanks a bunch, Les. Right kind of you. Had a couple of other offers likewise, butt decided I'd like to have a Clymers manual so ordered one.

Appreciate your offer, Les. Best always.
