    Question On-Board-computer; I need help!

    Hi all!

    I'm new here; this is my firts post!

    I'm a girl, living in the south of Norway, and I love to ride my babies; my Scarver and my Bravo!
    I got my 1979 Vespa Bravo when I was sixteen, and it still works!
    And I got my 2002 BMW F 650 CS Scarver in 2002, and I love it!
    I try to do whatever it's needed to with my bikes myselfes; I love to get dirty! :-)

    But I got a problem:
    I bought a On-board-Computer from BMW, and I have started to mount it on my Scarver.
    The problem is the connectors; there are three of them, and I can't figure out in what order I schall put those in the connector/contact!
    The brown in the midle, I know, but the rest?

    If I put those connectors in the wrong order I'm afraid to cause damage to my bike or the On-Board-Computer.

    So:
    I hope there are a Scarver with an On-Board-Copmuter out there!
    Please remove the right fairing, and look at the wiring for me! Please!

    And I hope my English is not that bad, and if it is; please ask me what I'm writing about!

    (And how do I make those Smilies work?)

    It's snowing here today....

    :-) Liv.

    Hi Liv,

    Did the unit not come with instructions, as is the norm from BMW?

    Try the Chain Gang. They are F650 specialists.

    Welcome to the forum Liv, I think global rider is correct, you will find more help with your motorcycle at the chain gang forum. there arent many here in this forum.
    We would love to see pictures of your rides and adventures though. Once again welcome!

    Do you see the Smilies to the right of the text box? Just click on one at the point where you want it to be, like after this word.

    Just one thought about your On-Board computer connectors. You mentioned that one of them is color coded brown, what about the others? Are they color coded...I am sure that you would figure out what goes where if they were. Just asking. What about matching wire color codes?

    Lightbulb Ta-daaa!

    Thank you, Loraz and Alex!

    I finally figured it out:
    One sunny day I sat in my livingroom, in the bright light, I got a grannys magnifying glass, and I stared at the contact, I was weeery focused.... and TA-DAAA! I saw a number! It was 1, and when I looked I saw number 2 and 3!
    I'm so glad!

    I too was thinking maybe there are the same colors on the wires on my Scarver and on the OBC, but they did not match. So I had to find those numbers or a Scarver with an OBC!

    I asked in The Chain Gang, Black Belt Gang, but when I did not think I was going to get an answer there, I posted here.

    And it's not snowing anymore!
    I'm happy!

    (But I still can't make those smilies work. I'm using Opera, not Internet Explorer; I guess we got the answer there.)

    So.
    -Any Scarvers around here? It's faster than the F 650 GS.... :-)

    Smilies.

    Hi!

    I'm out of Opera, and I'm using internet Explorer, and I'm now going to try a smilie:



    TA-DAA!

    Yes, it was Opera, my browser.

    Yes, it's Friday; have a beer! As we say in Norwegian: Sk?Ñl!

    Good for you

    Glad you got the On board computer figured out Liv. It is good to accomplish things like that on your own.
    We would like pictures of your bike, and where you ride if you are able to post them.
    Spring is coming soon and many of us are ready to ride again!

    Hi Loraz!

    If I made this right:
    Here's a picture of me and my baby 2 years ago, in the spring.
    That was my best easter ever - it was my first spring and easter on my Scarver!

    The place: Outside my favorit caf?¿; Tyrigrava, close to Oslo.

    :-) Liv.

    That is a great looking bike Liv! I can see why you like it! You sure look happy to be riding, and if you ever get to the USA, you are welcome to come ride here anytime. Here is a picture of me and my RRS

    Hi Loraz!

    Nice color! Blue!

    Thank you for the invitation! I'll keep that in mind, but I don't think I'm going over the pond this year. Or next year. It's not exactly in the neighbourhood!
    OH; is that Ohio?

    The cow on you t-shirt is upside-down! If you can't get any milk out of her, I can see why!
    Oh, I get it: You are making milk shake!

    Over here we call the BMW boxer ''gummi ku'' = rubber cow, and it's because they are soft. -Did that make any sense to you?

    I love the boxer, the K, and the Rotax!
    My boyfriend ride the K100, and here you see two good friends on summer holiday last year! Aren't they cute?

    Cheers!
    Liv.

    Where did my picture go?
    I try again....

    And I figured it out; too large picture.
    But almost all my pictures is that size! I know how to make the pictures smaller, but I hate the job! Some day I'll do it.

    Well, If I remeber correctly; this is a picture of me taken with my old, small and cheap camera. It wasn't many pixels there!
    (Is that correctly english? Sounds strange to me..)

    Hi Liv,

    What kind of information does the On-Board Computer provide? The only OBCs that I know of are on BMW's cars. On my GSes, they have a Rider Information Display (RID): oil temperature, fuel quantity and gear indicator.

    I should try to get to Norway one year. So far for the past 10 years, I've headed to the Alps during my summer holidays. Norway, Norkapp and the other Scandinavian countries are on my list though. I've heard Norway is expensive, but I never worry about that when on vacation. BTW, can you believe Americans are complaining about $2.25 a gallon gas prices...about 4.80 NOK per liter. What does gas go for in Norway?

    If you have high speed or know someone that does, you might try to download the videos from this Norwegian site. Unfortunately, they've started to charge for each video download. I'm glad I copied them before they started that. Great Alps as well as Norwegian backroads videos though.

    Since we are into picture mode...picking up my new 2004 R1150 GS Adventure.
