I've done three of these now. Mine and two others... there is a channel that starts just forward of the seat hinge that extends down to the top of the fork tube. Using a variety of tools (building wire, extra long crimp finger and even a 1989 Ford radio antenna) I was able to get the wire from the hinge to the head light assembly very easily.hifiman said:I have just spent 2hrs trying to feed the motolight wiring harness from battery to front of bike. Is there anyway that it can be done with out removeing the tupperware? Any suggestions?
hifiman said:Well I got the tupperware off. Ran my harness and put the tupperware back on. Ended up with an extra torx screw. Looked in all the places and cant find where it goes? When removing the side chrome plastic piece there is one screw (closest to driver) that holds the chrome plastic thing on. It has a rubber gasket that holds a nut that the screw goes in and as I was loosening it the rubber seal fell apart. I swear I have never seen so many cheap plastic parts in my life. Now I have to go to BMW tomorrow and order that piece. And I still do not know where that extra screw came from.
2 under the front amber turn signal
3 under the chrome plastic side piece
2 at the gas tank (1 visible when you open the CD door and 1 visible when you take the little latch door off. Not including the 2 black ones that hold the latch door down.
Im at a loss and very very frustrated. Kind of pissed too!
Good on ya. Gets easier each time!!!! :histericahifiman said:Found it! It was the one behind the lower wing cover.
Now I will have to order that rubber gasket that holds the end of the chrome plastic wing screw in place and I should be in good shape. Plastic parts!!!!
I also noticed all the screws seemed loose and thats all over the bike holding any of the tupperware in place.
Is that the way its supposed to be? Also should I be using any blue locktight
on these? Thanks
Other than the above I am darn proud of myself. I know removing tupperware seems simple to some (most) but this was my first time and I almost did it right!
This is why I always bring my bike to my dealer for inspections. Never had any troubles with them. Beside, it give me a reason to visit the dealer and see what is new.hifiman said:It does except Adventure BMW wrote back about ordering the part and said I cant bring it to them for inspection because Motolights are not legal in Virginia and wont pass inspection. Day just get better.
