Hi
I have had the same problem with Nav 5 and now with Nav 6. The solution is to let it stay connected, and it will connect, about 2 minutes to 6 minutes. :-)
I never have to wait more than a minute.

Yep, it's the trim part that goes around the pannier hanging lug, where it protrudes through the body side panel under the seat. Part number 4 in this diagram:

If you remove the panniers and compare the left and right sides of the bike, you should be able to see where its missing from.

Looks like the plastic trim from where the panniers mount to the bike, bike with central locking too.

Horn installed. It took ages to find a position where it didn't contact with the forks and to properly tidy the wiring, but now we finally have a horn that can be heard from more than twenty paces away.

Hi there, I am seriously thinking of buying a 2018 rt 1200 and wanted to find out from those of you who know the pros and cons of this machine. one of the things that cause me some concern is the reliability of the bike, the service costs, the ride and comfort of the bike and any other items that you would like to inform me off to help me make a decision.
In my experience water-cooled boxers are both more reliable and cheaper to live with than previous boxers, not to mention considerably faster and somewhat more comfortable: while far from optimal the saddle is not the torture device typically fit to older BMW's.

The problems I've had with mine are sidecase locks (both) and random shutdown at idle. All were solved under warranty quickly and efficiently. Now the battery is ailing after about two years but will "most likely" be replaced under warranty at next service in a week or so. Intriguingly enough I had the sidecase locks replaced on my previous bike as well (Hexhead RT).

My only gripe with the bike which, alas, cannot be solved is due to brake balance it literally goes through rear brake pads. I am presently trialing Braking pads as they seem to last somewhat longer than OE at a lower price but only time will tell.

To be honest I doubt there's a better bike out there. I road tested a K1600GT before buying this and while head and shoulders above the Goldwing (also road-tested, didn't like it one bit),it's just too heavy for my old and worn bones.
