    2005 R1200GS ( new to me last Summer ) Awhile back (spring) my side-stand sank in soft turf in the driveway, did a slow-mo topple over. After up righting it (no easy task) I found the clutch engaging way too soon, had to squeeze the lever tight to the bar. Had some suggestions offered in this...

    My 08 GS started making a weird sort of rattling noise at idle which didn't make before (I have 28K miles on it). What's weird is that I noticed the noise stops if I pull the clutch. I am not sure how critical this is or it will get in the short future but I am expecting to spend some $$$$ soon...

    Brake - I was changing the tires on my bike yesterday and noticed that the brake rotors have some play in them. The rotors can be moved slightly on a plane parallel to the wheel (not in and out). Is this normal? Both rotors have the same amount of movement and the discs themselves are properly...
  9. General chatter
    Has anybody worked up a fix for the rotating hand guards? Mine can "wander" to the point where they start to contact the clutch and brake hand levers. Apparently BMW does not have a real fix for this....:mad:
