You know Don, cant give you a definitive answere on that one.
Real snappy on the throttle & going very well at the moment.
I think it is just one of those jobs you glade was done when you see how dirty they are.

Good to know it is clean for the next 100K  8)

OK, so you dogs that know all about tyre pressure monitors neglected to tell me some vital information.  :peepwall:
So a month ago I change the front TPS battery on the front tyre, like an emergency type change at the bike fest.
Depress tyre & haul out sensor module & remove battery & fit new one sommer quick quick ek se.
Do GS911 fault clearing and whala, all smiles, hys reg.
Ride home from a great event & a week later TPS pops up & says, front wheel sensor is moeg.
Reset with GS911 but to no avail as it fails a few Kms down the road on default from front wheel no signal.
Now, as you peeps should know by now if one sensor defaults they both go into, as my pel voor nie werk nie dan sal ek nie werk nie. Sounds like it was designed by the local government.  :pot:
So, by now I am a little bit more than choked up. I cant decide what to hit it with yet & no dirty suggestions accepted, it is still actually a BMW & not a government vehicle.

I decide to go and see the launch of the new water cooled & very uprated GS1200 this morning.
All well & the weather super in PE.Switch the bike on & there is that yellow triangle giving me the beady eye.
Point taken to deal with it when I get back.
Show was very well attended & the bikes look even better in the metal & I am sure a few decisions were made to seek higher authority as to the purchase that WILL take place on Monday.
Back home the front tyre came off & the TPS module came off for inspection & battery  replacement. All was revealed why it failed in just a month.  ;D

OK. So the reason it failed so soon was that there was a minute amount of rust residue left in the fitting which I did not pick up when I changed the battery. This discharged the battery.
Further down the line the sensor stated to give me some strange readings & then I checked it carefully I discovered that it was cracked.
So, out with the old & replaced with a spare that I had.
This had to be taken to BMW to let it be woken up & instructed to speak to the electronics of the bike. All said & done & now working spot on.

Replaced them with a clean set and sweet again.

So, I'm going to the Springbok Rally this weekend and decided to set the tappets on the BM.

They were all loose and required to be set.
About two hours later all done and set. Used the method as per the photo.
Worked well and started well and runs quietly

Looking forward to the dirt road ride now with the smooooth motor.
Just like the Wilddogs are sensitive to THE touch so is the BM motor.

All well and done with the clock on 147700Km today

Hmmmm, A couple of days before the GS ECO and the trip is 149000Kms.  8)
Fitted another back tyre and did some minor settings to the bike.
Still seems to have a peek a boo nitrous acceleration from 3200 revs when accelerating through the gears.

Chris, Yes I have had it replaced. The Cush drive. The bearings were also replaced with all the nessary seals.
Since then the gearbox is smooth, no noize and feels like new.
