How much did the lights cost and how did you wire it? DIY?
Those lights were for 7K a piece along with the wiring, switch and relay. Did everything DIY, wiring, mounting etc.

Chanced upon this thread and went back in time looking at all those pics from around UK. Spend 8 years of schooling days at Dehradun (Col Brown), often frequenting these space on outing/trekking trips.
Recently happened to ride along with a 2015 GS to Hampi from Bangalore and what an incredible bike it is. Totally smitten by its capabilities. definitely on the bucket list. Planning to begin with a Versys 650 given the budget limitations. wishing you all the best and many memorable rides. Sharing a pic.

And what a statement it was.
Seems that with time situation changes and thinking changes and the kid in us changes.

So the bike is up for sale. I haven't given thought to what I will buy next. I bet its going to be the same way this one happened. I'll go to buy one and buy another. Haha

Don't want to let it go but the current work limits my riding. Or maybe these are just excuses and I need a new toy.

Oh thats sad to see it go Navpreet!

The 2012 is indeed among the best model years of the Twin-cam Hexhead 1200GS models to buy & own as all the previous niggles where straightened out by BMW by that time making it a trouble free bike. And given your meticulous care, I am sure its a keeper for who ever is buying this black beauty.

Good luck with the sale and your next purchase

Default Clearwater installation on the BMW R 1200 GSA

Hi everyone.
Ordered Clearwater hybrid lights for my 2018 BMW R 1200 GSA along with billy brake light junior. The lights come together with bike specific mountings and wiring which is plug and play. All one has to do is install then on the mounting and run the wires to the Canbus of the bike.
Has anyone installed Clearwater on their own - DIY? Surely BMW cannot do it for you as Clearwater is not their partner. If got it done from outside how much time does it take and is it as simple as they demonstrate in their videos and other installation material. The costs involved outside BMW will depend on the person doing the job so I am not that keen on knowing about it but it cannot be out of proportion. Noticed these days all aftermarket spares and other fittings being sold in India for any of the premium motorcycle brands are very costly. Probably because everyone expects you can afford it and not because it's import has been costly.
Waiting for members suggestions/ input.
Thank you

Congrats on the purchase! They are lovely bit of equipment. I am a fan.

I haven't installed Clearwater yet on my GS. But I did a DIY on Denali D4s on my (ex) Triumph Bonneville.

Clearwater should also supply you with what they call as the "CAN opener" which allows you to use the BMW CAN bus system and do a piggy back install of the lights on the system.

I have gone thru a few installation videos and have read the Clearwater light installation manual as well.

I think it should be as straightforward as it is described in the installation sheet. You'll probably not need too many tools.

You can refer the installation here (I assumed you got the Erica / Sevina and your bike has the wonder/rota wheel)

They have installation videos as well

I would have enjoyed to do this with you, but I am in Pune. Fancy an installation ride to Pune ?

Thanks nitrogary. Appreciate the links.
I've ordered the Erica Krista hybrid with black light covers along with amber covers. Reason is the traffic cops in Chandigarh. If they notice fog lamps or Aux lights fitted with no lamp covers they sometimes issue you a ticket. Fog lamps and auxiliary lights need to be under cover when not in use especially after market ones.
Sevina I assumed will be too bright so wasn't keen plus I am planning to put them in the crash guard extension near the front beak of the GS where Sevina will look odd. Right place for Sevina probably is where the OEM fog lamps are fitted on the GS. I am not planning to remove my fog lamps to fit the Clearwater lights.
Yes my GS has the wonder wheel and I am enjoying it scrolling the TFT display.
Due to work requirement didn't plan any long rides so haven't picked up the Navi-6 yet.
Yes Clearwater supplying the can opener too.
Pune is a great place for bike accessories. Had Motorrad not opened in Chandigarh then I had plans to come to Pune to take the delivery of the GS.

CW installed and working fine...I use the wonderwheel and have set them at 50% output. Keeping them covered when not in use.
Upsetting news pouring in....traffic cops in HP, Haryana after LED aux lamps. Friend of mine was caught on a ride in Himachal. He too has a BMW GSA 1200 with Baja lights. Don't know how he managed to get out of it. Thanks to so many super bright Chinese lights installed by small town and village riders commuting on highways on regular basis this looks like a major crackdown on Aux LED lights. Will wait and watch what happens next

Mod Note : Please avoid typing with excessive dots.........like................this.

Thanks
