Missing fill Plug

I don't have a fill plug on my final drive or it's hiding. Second pic is the RepRom pic of the rear wheel drive . First pic is my bike. This is a 2012 R1200GS

Yours is before they added the fill plug in 2008 (I think?). Fill through the rear speed sensor.

Your right I did miss that.:-) Are you sure your fill plug is not on the outside? I think at some point they moved it so you would not have to remove the wheel?

I wish it was on the outside. If it is I couldn't find it and yes I filled through the speed sensor.

I'm going to feel really stupid if the fill plug is there and I missed it

I would not feel stupid because over the years they changed it so much that nobody can keep track of it.

I found this thread http://www.r1200gs.info/forum/14-mai...nal-drive.html
where they say "Looking at drive from left side filler plug is about 3oclock position on 10 and up bikes"
So it could be just to the right of where your picture shows as the other gentleman said?

It is a moving target.

On the 11-12 it is on the right side (wheel side too) of the FD.

Rotate the braike disk and you will find it at about the 3:30 position

OK, I guess I'll blame it on old age and bad eyes . There it is just below 3 o'clock . Thanks for finding it for me. I Guess I'll fill from there next time.

I looked on the right side but I was looking around 5 to 10 o'clock . I'm wondering now that they put it so low if it isn't a fill to the threads as I heard some on this forum talk about. 180 ml always works.

That's what my 13 RT looks like and 180mL does not leak out of the threads.
