Meurig do the new Rallye have passenger foot pegs or not? Cant remember  :o

Get engine guards first imo.

Thanks people!
I am the BMW club but a different name. Although I'm not really posting there often. I'm sure it will change now.  :)

My range reading showed 5 km, filled up with 19.5 litres, so I reckon that is as accurate as can be.

I personally would put on OEM if I had the money as it is simpler if the bike is traded in while still under warranty.  If you have another brand BMW takes it off if traded during warranty.   Strange but that's what they told me.

Otherwise it's up to you

I noticed that when I start my bike up, sometimes there is a fuel smell.

I had read on our local BMW Club Website how to reset the throttle bodies but couldn't find the post again.

So I put the bikes ignition on without starting it and gently rolled open the throttle to full lock, then closed it.  I repeated this five times and just for good measure, I switched off and on the ignition and repeated this process again.

So far so good, no petrol smell and the bike seems smoother, maybe it is my imagination but I am pleased.

Can any one confirm this is the way to reset the throttle bodies on the LC?,

Hmmm I couldn't really find anything about this but sounds like the procedure my XChallenge uses to reset the TPS /IPS.
One have to do it while the bike has run a little.
Idle or run til operating  temperature. Switch bike off then on. Slowly turn throttle open and closed 3 times. Switch bike off then back on.

I will try it after running the bike for a while, cheers
