electrical outlet for heated gear
I just picked up my first BMW and I am beside myself. I have always wanted one, so I went and bought myself a beautiful 2006 K 1200s with 14,000 miles on the clock. I have a couple of questions. first, is the brake fluid supposed to be red. I just came off jap bikes and I am used to brake fluid being more honey colored. second, I was told that the outlet on the case can handle 5amps, but my gerbing jacket pulls 6. can I directly wire that outlet to the battery with no adverse effects. I was wearing heated gloves, but with these grips i dont think i will need them. so I am looking forward to putting many miles on this bike, since the bike I came off of had 99,000. a 1995 suzuki RF900. not too many of those have seen that kind of mileage. I am hoping to do the same on the K12.
