Thread: Left Leg Amputated! Electric shifter??? 2011 RT HELP Please

  1. #16
    I found an online article from a Connecticut rider group about a man who lost his left leg to a car driverís left turn. Afterwards he had a Pingel shifter mounted on his BMW F800 GS. I checked, that bike has the CAN-BUS system, too. Just FYI for you all. Thanks for all the input. Still going to bounce my situation off the local dealershipís repair department.

    Good to hear! But...

    The coil for a 2011 r1200RT is p/n 12 13 8 520 154 if you use the "straight" type,
    or p/n 12 13 8 520 173 (left) or 174 (right) if you use the angled type.

    The coil for an F800GS is either 12 13 8 523 968 for the earlier years except for the Adv version,
    and the coil for later years, and the May 2012 to March 2016 Advs is 12113 8 561 404.

    So that still leaves open the question of "will the trigger signal work?" Don't talk to the service manager, talk to a Master mechanic, or at least to a later "R" specialist, or even get persnickety with Pingel, to determine if there is a difference in what the computer sends to the primary side of the coil.
