Well what the heck guys. I was leaving work today (I have an odd work schedule, 6 on/ 2 0ff) and went out to the bike and of course just glanced at the connections, and what the......at least one if not both were off! The larger of the 2 definitely hanging, the second smaller one, well I was so peeved that now I'm not sure on it. I know damn well I had them both in place. I'd tend to agree it takes a bit to remove them just on purpose, how can they FALL off?? At least this time it was a no-brainer.
A little help from a GT2 owner would be appreciated. Take a look at that harness. On the pigtail by the connectors it is just wrapped in a fabric tape, this leads to a flexible plastic conduit. Where the conduit starts it looks like some sort of clip, hard to describe it, but a part on that clip looks like it might fit into a rectangular hole? So it might be related to that recall. I still can't imagine the harness catching on something and ripping the connectors out. PLUS I rode the bike to work and parked it, it ran fine to work. I'd have to study the suspension to see which way would tend to pull away from the ignition, would it be when I put it up on the center stand or taking it off the stand? I think putting it up on the stand right? Which might sort of make sense, I rode to work, shut it off, put it on the stand, then hours later I come back and the wire connectors are off.
But yesterdays scenario makes no sense. I already had it on the center stand, decided to put the shield up, then after washing the whole bike is dead and the connector is off.
This is just screwy. Things like this happen to me alot, I should be a tester for BMW, just give me a bike and by God if something is capable of getting screwed up it'll happen to ME!
