    Just hit 20,000 miles on my C650 GT

    Tire Pressure Readings (RDC) Vanished

    Had a minor issue with tire pressure readings. Posting this in case someone has a similar issue and is searching for info .... Two days ago, my dashboard tire pressure readings disappeared (well-kept 2013 BMW C650 GT with 18,800 miles). I knew it wasn't simultaneous failure because I replaced...

    Running out of gas? Handy GT tip ....

    Want to know how many miles until you run out of gas? The BMW C 650 GT has a built-in feature that tells you. It's not a direct, "78 miles of range" reading that works anytime like my Prius. But with a few calculations, you get the same result. I'm on my third GT and didn't realize this until...

    Chain Rail Replacement

    Just sharing observations on replacing the chain rail for the 2013 GT I bought several weeks ago .... With 15,000 miles on the bike, I figured I had chain rail #1 in place. That's the windshield-wiper shaped piece inside the swingarm that adds tension to the chain. As the chain gets looser over...

    Replacing CVT air filters

    Yes, "filters," plural. I learned this morning there are two CVT air filters in the GT. BMW calls them front and rear. Rear = the round filter on the inside of the black hood covering the metal belt case. Front = a rectangular filter about three inches in front of the rear. It's like a skinny...

    Need the 9-1-1 on GS-911 for TPMS sensor replacement

    UPDATE: If you're searching for info on replacing a TPMS sensor (RDC, Reiffendruckkontrolle), this thread starts with GS-911 but segues to the Motoscan app and OBDLink, which turns out to be a simple, effective and cheaper way to change your own sensor. Debating whether to invest in GS-911 to...

    Updating maintenance on a 2013 BMW C 650 GT

    Bought a 2013 BMW C 650 GT with 15,100 miles. I got it from a Ducati dealer in Pompano Beach, Florida. They took it as a trade-in and had little history on the bike. This is my 10th maxi-scooter since I treated myself to a 2003 Honda Silver Wing on Christmas Eve, 2016. I had four Silver Wings...

    GPR Exhaust for Sale

    I bought a 2013 C 650 GT last week. It's my third GT and this one came with a GPR exhaust on the bike (and the original muffler in a bag). I'm more prone to ear plugs and wishing my bike was electric, but I know there is someone who will love this. 2016+ GT's have a great BMW growl, but 2012 -...

    Here are some sobering statistics to keep us all safer. From the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report for 2016 ....

    FOR SALE: Tall GIVI Windscreen for BMW C 650 GT

    If you love your 650 GT but hate buffeting from the low stock windscreen, this is a great solution. GIVI windscreen D5106ST is 5.1" higher than the stock screen. I live in Florida with no helmet law, so my test for a windscreen is simple: Is my baseball cap blown off at 50 mph? (stock screen...

    Beneath the Body Cover ... C650 GT

    I bought my '17 C650 GT three months ago but it was put on the road in December, 2017. That's two years so I figured I'd change the brake fluid and coolant. Also changed the oil and filter. I took off most of the body cover to make things easier, plus I wanted to see what was under there...
