bv storage

The BV has very little storage under the seat. A helmet would not fit. It does, however, have a really robust helmet lock built in near the tail. The helmet would be secure but not kept dry if it...

I have a BV500 which is similar to the Scarabeo 500. It is more than up to the task. It is limited on storage. You might look into a Burgman 400. They have loads of storage and are capable freeway...

fuel pump

I had a fuel pump go out in a Dodge a few years back. The gas gauge went out and continued to show 1/2 tank when it was empty and we ran out of gas. The dealer replaced the gauge and a week later we...

I have the Ztechnik HID aux lights. The ballast is mounted under the beak. You really can't even see it unless you are looking for it.

The parts guy at my dealer recommended the Battery Tender Jr. It plugs right in to the pigtail that came with the bike. It doesn't get easier or cheaper than that.

It's supposed to be dirty

I was filling up at a Shell station yesterday when a guy came over asking about the bike. He asked if I knew about the promotion going on. He was there trying to sell some kind of waterless car wash....

oil level

I don't bother with the side stand ritual. I just pop it on the centerstand, come back 10 min later. Oil showing in glass means good to go.

oil use

I had an 1150RT that burned oil like no tomorrow. My 1200GS doesn't burn enough to need to add any between oil changes.

Good quality gas has detergents in it already. Why waste money adding more?

cleaning plastic

I soften the bugs with a wet cloth to remove and then use a plastic polish from Maguires or Mothers. It might help a little and will keep it from getting worse.

no additive

Doesn't the owners manual specifically recommend against using oil additives? It seems I recall this.

I went the driving lights route with Ztechnik lights. They come as a complete kit with ballast, switch, etc. No need to mess with the stock system.
