as the video shows, there are three things to do
1-turn key horizontal to unlock the locking mech; the key remains in place

2-pull the lever on the clutch side outward (from the mount) to its stop

3-push the lever on the right toward the clutch side to release the retaining tabs

While the mount is "naked" look at the mech to see how it works

In my case when the bike was new the locking mech required a bit of give and take to get it to engage/disengage; I have to fiddle a bit--much easier now at 38k miles

If your gps is in there and you are releasing it, be ready to catch it when you release the tabs with the brake side lever. It will possibly fall out

Thanks. By two sets, you mean two rows? I think this is a LINBUS mount, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

If so, next step will be finding some second hand parts for the magic wheel but also the rest since it won't suffise on its own.

The full monty

I am going for the full monty, as I already have a CAN-bus cradle, that will be replaced by the LIN-bus cradle in a couple of days.
I was lucky to find a salvaged left handle with botht he grip and magic wheel, and judging from both response here on forum and by disassembling the salvaged parts, it looks doable.

There is no need to add any confusion to this operation, there is only one integrated GPS cradle for the LC GS's and it the one shown above.
Even Garmin's car kit cradle with no integration for the BMW Nav devices has 2 rows of contacts,
Even though the GPS cradle connects the bike via LINBus most refer to it as CANBus and is nothing to be concerned about.

The only thing that needs to happen for a retrofit is the GPS (Navigation System) cradle must be enabled, I presume that there will be no power to the cradle or bike/GPS integration until this is accomplished.

Not sure I fully get it actually. It seems a little more complex than I thought, I see 4 possible "left handles" :

https://www.realoem.com/bmw/showpart...=32_2190&hg=32

First one is not heated.
Second is LINBUS, heated + GPS prep, up to 08/2014, which ticks the boxes
Third is the same, but from 08/2014, so that's a no go
But FOURTH seem to be heated + GPS, up to 08/2014, just without the "LINBUS"?

So which is it, 61317723713 or 61317727065?

I was going to shoot on a second hand one when I realised the number wasn't quite a match

Thank goodness there is only one multicontroller

This is interesting. And the challenge is to get this done at a small cost of course. Many thanks for your help on the matter.

What year is your bike? If a 2014 what is the build date?

Does your GS have heated grips?

Technically BMW part # 61317723713 is the exact match for your bike.
However, BMW part # 61318552117 can be used as an alternative just that the grip heat gets a bit hotter, I installed this grip on my 2013 along with the newer throttle grip BMW part # 61318552120 because my grips weren't getting hot enough for me, this solved that issue.

On the same task!

Hey guys! I found myself on this task; I just got the retrofit navigation preparations for my 2016 k50 (which is basically the mounting bar and the GPS cradle) ! It has heated grips, but now Im looking for the roll switch multi controller and Im kind of lost about it.

I have found that the correct number part is 61317727498, am I ok with this one? Should I replace my left handle?

And the other thing is, should I need a different left lights, horn, controller? I have the one without cruise control btw!

And finally how is the routing of cables from the GPS cradle to the roll switch? or do I need another cable? Is it just plug and play!

Thank you!

You will only need the mutli-controller wheel your stock switchgear and grip assembly will work with it.
If you PM me your email address I will send you the installation instructions, it is difficult to do it right without them.
