Don't ever attempt to get at the engine side of the ground cable on a 2011 GSA, it will make you turn into an alcoholic. You need a BMW special tool to remove and reinstall the clamps from the air box.

It is cheaper to purchase 2 very high quality positive and negative cables and reroute them and run them in parallel to the existing ones. Then the GSA will happily start on a 19 degree morning.

Don't ask me how I know.............................................. ..

Morton's wanted me to wait until I brought the bike in for a 24K service which was 4K away. This is the 2nd time I've complained about the no starting issue, the 1st time they claimed it was too many ring terminals under the positive screw on the battery...........there was only two and they installed them both
