Re: 2010-2013 RT

Check also that the rear disc carrier has been replaced (usually done under warranty). Early models were alloy, which cracked through the bolt holes.. The updated part is steel. Handlebar switchgear was problematic on some models. I had both sides replaced on my 2011 bike. But again, most should hav...

Re: What don't you like

I'm pretty happy with mine, but to make it even better, I'd like to see: 1 - A better standard of finish and more robust paint finishes. Especially on the centre stand etc. 2 - Stainless bolts everywhere . Surely wouldn't add much ex-factory cost to an already expensive bike. 3 - A full-length engin...

Re: Adaptive cruise control

My current bike (2023 model) has ACC. I bought the bike as ex-demo, so I had no influence over the specification. I've had 'ordinary' cruise control on several previous bikes, but this is my first with ACC. It works well, keeping a safe distance and accelerating/decelerating smoothly. I like it, but...

Re: Heated Seat

I have had the BMW optional 'high' seat and it behaved exactly as you describe. I think the heating element is buried deeper in the thicker cushioning.

I also have a 'Wunderlich' high seat and the heating needs to be on the highest setting to actually be noticeable.

Re: Anyone else?

I've just had the same on my 2020 R1250RT. I was washing the bike and lifted the screen to the highest position to clean the underside. Noticed that the lower left pivot pin was missing completely. The e-clip was missing from the lower right side pin, but the pin was still in position. I can only as...

Re: BMW Top Box

A 'little' play is normal, I think. Check under the topbox, where the 'claws' expand to grip the rack on the bike. There are some ribbed rubber pads which engage with the rack. These pads can compress and harden with age. As Sakm states, replacement pads are available as a spare part. Alternatively,...

Re: Dirty bike…

They are BMW parts. Quite a collection of panels and fixings. I bought mine for my first R1200RT LC (2016), then transferred them to my 2018 R1200RT LC and now they're fitted to my 2020 R1250RT (pre-TFT) bike. I'm not sure about the TFT-version R1250RT. Your dealer should be able to help with sourci...
