What I can't figure out is how BMW claims there is no remapping of the F800 engine to run regular gas, when the almost identical (I know there are a few differences) engine in the F650 twin does it...

Question Two questions

1. Will the 800GS package will work on the 650GS twin?

2. What is the purpose of the CANBUS decoder? Is it required to make the light work, or just for CANBUS to monitor the light?

Thanks.

AP-1 fusebox on F650

Where did you put the AP-1? I've been looking all over my 650, and couldn't find a place that would be accessible (seat or fake tank panel) and was going to go with a smaller fusebox. I know there's...
