2013+ R1200 water cooled are Wetheads

There is some carryover between engine configurations. The GSA went to 2006 as an 1150. The R/RT went to 2011 as Hexheads and the 2013 GS was the only Wethead, the others were Camheads.

Some odd outliers even with those caveats.

Yaaahh for me, I finally figured out how to post a photo!

I bought my '13 Adventure in September. Recent surgery has prevented me from riding it much but I should be back in the saddle in a couple weeks. Only 700 miles on it. I hang my head in shame.

Say, Friz, how did you mount those Clearwater lamps?

if it helps, jvb cannibalized these clamps from the clearwater's auxillary mount kit to mount like so:

Thanks, NoVa Rider. I've a '14 GSA on the way sometime next year and I'm trying to figure out how to mount my Kristas so they're out of harm's way in a tip-over or low-speed get-off.

The Ericas were mounted at the dealer but I presume they used the Clearwater clamp brackets that came with the kit. The clamps were attached directly to the BMW crashguard. I actually like the location because I think (never having done it yet) it might help keep the lights out of harm's way in a simple get down. Here's a closeup of the mount:

Nice set-up! Thank you, Friz.

My new (to me) R1200 GS

Hi all,

first post on here.
Not only my first BMW but my first motorcycle also.

Passed my test last year and been saving hard for this.

Apologies for lack of knowledge when I post.......

but

I'm looking planning on adding some crash bars, top box and possibly screen ideas as I find the buffeting a bit disconcerting, maybe because I'm not an experienced rider or it could be because I'm 6ft 3?

Any how, just wanted to stop by and say hi,

Johnny

Its a beauty and no question you can improve on wind protection. Where are you in the UK? Loads of great riding over there. Enjoy your new bike and ride safe.

Hi,

I live very close to North Wales so looking forward to some rides in the hills. I'm an ex racing-cyclist so I know plenty of routes.

Having a trawl through the threads and yes, there appears to lions share of potential screens. Some reading up to do I suspect.

Cheers
