Need more exposure of 1100 & 1150RT's
GS's are fine but there are some differences from RT's.
(Ya, I know this is a GS place but not all readers have one.)
A whole lot of tupperware for a newbie to figger how best to remove.
Like my tank is plastic and the location of fuel filter/ level float is in a different place in the tank. ABS reservoir is under the tank.

Getting the 1100RT fuel guage to show all the bars.
Changing the RT charcoal filter.
Installing an HID system.
Dimming down the HI beam indicator light.
Replacing/ upgrading headlight bulbs in RT's
aiming RT light.
Replacing a leaking final drive large seal.
Installing peg lower kit
Installing floor boards.
retrofit an RTP oil fan system.

Just off the top of my head.
Changing a tire on an alloy rim and a spoked one.

when I had my 1200 GS I bought your video and loved it.

Now I have a KTM 990 adventure and would love your product.

The bike is complicated to work on and your video would sell well I believe.

I wouldn't mind doing a KTM. I would need a KTM guru and a bike to do it on.

Jim,

I had your Hexhead DVD when I owned my 05 R12GS and now have the Camhead DVD for my 11 RT, very good work.

I would like an in-depth instructional DVD on using the GS911. Not just how to connect and go through the paces but what it all means.

Also, wondering why changing fork oil is not emphasized; how and how often it should be done????

Lastly, offer a printed tutorial as option to the corresponding DVD.

You know, that is a good point. Let me talk with Stephan about that and see if he would be interested in something.

Thanks,

Did anyone mention installation of a Centech or Blue Sea fuse box to power accessories? Maybe the benefits of relay vs. non-relay fuse box? Pehaps a recommendation for the best/closest wire to tap to get a switched wire for the relay?

Actually, I have that mostly covered here: http://www.jimvonbaden.com/Accessories.html

I do plan on expanding on it though, for the sequal Accessories DVD.

Thanks,

Jim

Show how to build a Manometer and how to use it to balance the TB with and without a GS911

No need for a GS-911 for a TB sync. http://www.jimvonbaden.com/R1200_TB_Sync.html

The GS911 is useful for calibrating the stepper motors, but seems to have little value for a throttle body sync.

As for the Manometer, that is not that difficult:

I have read where some people us the GS911 to lock the steppers while doing the TB Sync. I've not tried doing it that way myself, maybe next time I will see there is any difference.

I've done it both ways.

The real value of the GS-911 seems to be the calibration of the stepper motors. It smooths idle and off idle transition.

R1100 Low voltage ABS fault

How about the rewiring of the ABS control to eliminate the low voltage code

I`d like to see fork seals, final drive rebuild and clutch replacement. By the way I have two of your DVD`s and think they`re great.
