Title: GS 1200 potentio meter stuffed - now what?
Post by: VMAN on July 13, 2010, 09:44:52 am
I had the bike at Bavaria. They said they opened it and cleaned all the bits, but no improvement. In fact, it is even worse now.
Stays in Neutral up to 4th gear, then shows 1.
When in top gear, shows 3.

My bike does 100kph in Neutral!!

Any ideas on fixing?

BMW quoted at least R10k

Stick a piece of black tape over the display and leave the R10k in the bank :biggrin:

What is a potentiometer? It sounds like it has no place on a motorbike, perhaps in a computer?
