The R1200R and R1200GS are identical in this respect, so your experience should be the same as mine reinstalling your R1200GS auxiliary light switch on your F800GS.

This may not apply to the 2013 F800GS with the new switchgear.

Thank You Fred!

I am excited to get my wiring issue tidied up. The new 2013 F800 will not accept the switch for the r1200gs... But it will have a wiring harness designed specifically for it. You can view it on the Webetk bmw parts site. Since the part is so new techs are not sure of a retrofit. I have the r1200gs wiring harness on order. Going to look at it for a clean install. Also have the centek ap2 and wiring harness. Going to cost about the same, but the centek will give me the option to add other electric goodies. Purchased some posi tap connect stuff to get everything clean.
