    Yup, I'm on my third one and there is no fault with them...apparently.

    has nobody tried fitting an Anode of any sort to see if that remedies it..?

    One week before my 6,000 mile service my set/trip & indicator switch failed. Cannon at Braintree acknowledged that it was a problem they were aware of. They replaced the switches on both sides free of charge. They said that since BMW had started using these switches in 2010 they have been a problem. It makes you wonder why they are still using them on 2013 bikes!

    Let's hope they stop using them on 2014 ones.

    its bloody amazing stuff...used it b4 on plastic fairings so i thought i'd give it a go being as it sez it sticks anything..

    theres 2 parts to it..1 is like a graphite filling and the others the glue, simply tip the powder where you want it then apply the glue to soak through...it is advised to do it in small patches to allow the glue to soak through properly..

    i think i did about 5 layers to build it up to where i wanted it.... watch your fingers cos 2 mins after you apply the glue you can sand it "I ended up using a small detail file cos it was that tuff to sand"...

    Oooo does it smell nice, be interested to see how well it holds up as may need something like this when BMW won't replace mine any more.
