I am a retired ****** living in Costa Rica now. I just bought a used 2008 R1200GS, and I am quite impressed with the machine. I bought my first BMW, a used 1960 R69. 50 years ago!
I have been doing a lot of the routine maintenance on this moto, as I am not too sure of it's history. The only problem I am having with it is idle speed. Some days it is fine, other times it wants to idle too fast, about 2000 or 3000 rpm. I re-routed the throttle cable, it was routed between the handlebar risers and I thought that was the problem. Now the cable is routed over the bars, much more free, but I still have the intermittant fast idle problem. Anyone have any ideas? Gracias.
