    2nd Gen - handlebar cover removal

    So I cheated and had the dealer do it. Half hour of labor, but no tabs broken!

    2nd Gen - handlebar cover removal

    Hey guys - I just traded my 2013 for a 2018. I’m trying to plug gps harness into the port under the handle bar cover. I can remove the center cover - but, the resulting opening is very small and my gps harness has an in-line “box” that needs to be hidden inside - the box will not fit through...

    2016 C 650 GT windshield will not go up and down.

    Yep - you need a dealer to perform the reset. Takes about 10 minutes and my dealer didn’t charge me for it last time I did it.

    Opinions & Input on 2016 & newer model - C650

    Not true. Not close to true.

    Is the C650 too much machine to serve as a first-ever bike?

    This is just incorrect. My GT is FAR more top heavy than my 900 pound Chieftain. I have dropped my BMW but never dropped my much larger Indian. Vespas, Buddys, Stella’s, many Piaggios (but definitely not the MP3’s), I agree with you. Not top heavy at all. But the BMW is very top heavy at...

    windshield and speedometer problems

    Don’t know about the speedo, but I have lost functionality of the windscreen adjustment 2-3 times following a power loss (dead battery). Requires a pretty simple (10 minutes or so) reboot of the operating system at the dealer to fix. May fix the speedo too.

    What are the most common aftermarket upgrades ? has them - google is your friend. Amazon had them also, but didn’t trust the seller - GPS City is great.

    2016 C 650 gs what should it sell for ?

    You don't want to ride with them anyway - they go too slow.

    Rode the scooter in 25 degree F weather last Friday.

    +1 on Freez-Out. That is great stuff and relatively cheap when it is on sale, which is often. I think it may be currently on sale - I saw a recent Cycle Gear circular and it was on sale.

    Closed circuit (sort of) for SteveADV

    #gluttonformore I just booked my hotel room for Columbus next fall. Assuming the expected fine fall weather, I plan to ride up. If you Ohio guys want to show me around your favorite roads, would love to make that happen - Thursday or Friday before the game or Sunday after. Long way away, but...

    Rockin Sound System for 2016 BMW C650GT

    I rock a set of custom plugs from Fit-ear. Expensive, but well worth it. Provides great protection from wind and engine noise and allows me to listen to my iPod at about 35% volume. My Chieftain has a stereo, and i use it when I ride that bike, but I prefer my Fir-ears...

    Well, I needed some time, but I have returned. Congrats to the Buckeyes. They were GREAT on Saturday night. I watched a number of plays where every single OSU player 'won" their battle. It was a great atmosphere and a fun night, but my Sooners were whipped. Looking forward to a trip to...

    Lots of scarlet and gray in town. Nice to have the visitors. We'll treat em well and send em home with a whooping. A little dance down memory lane to 1977, when there was never more than 2-3 college football games on tv each Saturday. But Switzer and Hayes in the Shoe was. Throw in a great...

    Confidence! I like it. Certainly no reason to believe the Sooners have a chance. Certainly the Buckos have proven their brilliance against the stellar duo of Bowling Green and Tulsa, in the horseshoe. I mean - Tulsa and Bowling Green are awesome tests, especially at home. Not even sure the...

    That was definitely your problem - every time I have done this, hard to start next time.

    Dropped my GT two days ago.

    So, this thread has officially been hijacked, but I just got back from my classes with MotoMark1 in Burlington NC. Mark (owner) is a Marine and a career moto officer (ret) for NC Highway Patrol. Super guy and a great experience. I took the class on my Indian Chieftain. Day 1 - motor skills...

    Lithium ion battery

    Let's talk lithium. Who has tried one? What did you buy? Do you like it? Downsides? My 2013 stock is getting long in the tooth and I want to replace before a trip to the cool mountains in late September.
