    Im not sure I understand your question. It has been a well known issue with BMW switchgear that the microcircuitry in the RHS switchgear can stop working if it gets too hot and the plastics expand. So cooling it down can give a temporary fix. It is a free replacement by BMW if faulty, LHS gets done too.

    Sun is the big yellowy light often visible in the sky during daytime in civilised parts of the country. It is considered dangerous to Scottish people, and has therefore been banned north of the border.

    Hi Andy, I've heard about that. There is a wee ginger guy lives at the end of my road apparently saw it in the Big Summer of 76. He never talks about it just walks about now muttering something about Midges.

    Had the same problem on my GS in Morocco a few years ago Soofsayer, stripped it and trimmed it down with a scalpel to give enough room for the rocker switch to move, still working 4 years later.

    I had same with my starter/killswitch. Wouldn't turn the bike over at all. Someone advised me that if you press the starter really hard and hold it in for a few seconds it may start. Think it forces the warped circuit board to contact again. I tried it and the bike fired up! Still replaced the switch afterwards but worked to start bike temporarily.....worth a try.

    I've had 2 new sets of switchgears in the last 5 years!
