K1200 / K1300 Forum / Re: BMW Alarm on K1300S with RDC (TPMS)
« Last Post by Lotus26R on Today at 06:31:26 pm »
At the risk of trying to resurrect a very old post...

I suspect I too may be confused.

My 2014 K13 has TPMS fitted in a Schrader box with one socket under the seat. Am I correct in understanding that, if I buy a combined TPMS/Alarm unit this will be a straight replacement for my existing box (ie, just the one outlet but presumably a cut-out for the sounder on top).

I will be able to get my local dealer to code it into the bike and then I'll be able to use it with or without a remote control. There were some photo's on this thread that would probably have answered my question but they seem not to be linked anymore.

Thanks

I know! This bike has ruined the whole "yay shaft drive" thing for me, being more murdery than I've known any chain bike to be.

I know in my higher brain that if I bought another one then I'd probably be fine, and nobody else here has had this problem as far as I know (unless we're missing half a dozen potential members who are dead), but it's still at the back of my mind always.

And so we better hope I get a decent bonus and a new bike before the summer trip lest I be even slower in corners! :P

After a good when all is running well it's "a beauty"

After a bad ride if things have not gone well with the bike "useless bundle of crap"

Other than it just a tool to use.

Funny that because I was always concerned that an over-oiled chain would pee itself all over the rear tyre and have me off... :(

The perfect target audience:
https://www.pemc.co.uk/index.htm

If you know what PEMC stands for, you may chuckle.  If you don't you may struggle to find it - it's well-hidden.

If nothing else, marvel at the quality of the website. It is a little window into the past.
Matt probably won't be able to sleep after viewing it.

Haha I made it about 5 seconds and auto closed it on principle!

I'm almost at 29k now. Got it at _1,900 miles I think. As far as I can remember:

1. Swingarm and front 'forks' bit replaced due to corrosion ~ early on
2. Driveshaft failure peeing oil over the rear tyre ~ 6k miles
3. Driveshaft failure peeing oil over the rear tyre ~ 15k miles
4. Front suspension bit replaced (and then entire front end because they couldn't get the bush or something out) ~24k miles

Annoyingly I'm realising more and more that I don't trust it going round corners. Specifically regarding it peeing oil over the rear tyre and trying to kill me. BMW tried to assuage my concerns when they determined that it was some out-of-spec shim that caused both failures but... doesn't change me being paranoid now.
