    R1250R fuel tank removal

    Well, not the whole tank. I got a set of bar risers that require re-poisitioning of the clutch hose. At a first stab, it's not clear how the plastic and painted pieces come off so I can see the routing.

    Here's a couple R1200R LC pictures that may help.
    Note the grommet location.
    The R1200R LC should be the same as the 1250.

    Wow, thanks. I'll report back on how it works.

    In this link post #10 also has pictures of the R1200R parts fiche so you can keep track of the fastener size and location.

    Lee, thank you very much. Some differences but your detailed photos gave me enough to take it apart. Now, getting it back togather...can you tell me where this sensor hooks up? I'd guess it the air intake temp or pressure gauge but I'll be damned if I see where it clips in,

    Air temp. On an RT, it goes into a hole on the inside of the fairing, and secures with a twist.

    Looks like the hole on bracket in background, the wiring “memory” of how it rests should be a clue

    I can't find an R1250R sketch, but this R1200R should be similar.

    From a GS repair manual

    Do you see anything that looks like this, perhaps on that air tube?

    Excellent. I'll pull it back apart and have a look for that bracket. I did look in that spot and missed it but pictures always help (at some point in my academic career I refused to by any new books that didn't have pictures). I did just zip tie it in about that spot yesterday.

    henzilla: that hole locates a cosmetic cover.

    It's good to see that wetheads are as helpful as the airheads have been for years. Thank you all.

    I'll also note that all the trouble I had with fiddly plastic parts and the temp sensor is penance for the needling I direct at people who complain about modern bikes being too complicated. Particularly that fellow buying a Royal Enfield at my BMW-Triumph dealer.
