Not many people are going to track this bike compared to the R6, GSXR, even the RR.
I highly doubt you ever see abs race/track plastics for the s1kr.

A stupid question for my culture, why do we need to switch all lights off? I thought that taping was necessary to prevent from glass pieces to go everywhere on the track. And we don't have mirrors so can't be blinded by headlights? I went last Sunday and we were even asked to put either hand up or blinker on when exiting to the garages at the end of a session...

Not after track plastics. Just headlight covers. They make the for the s1000XR which I'm pretty sure is even less likely to go on the track. Also the k1600gt. All I can think is its due to the dodgy shape of our headlights.

If you tape the headlights but don't remove fuses to set the lights off, you may burn the plastic "glass". This actually hapened to me.  :157:

Yeah this is what I'm trying to avoid. Plus I like the pictures that people take at the track and having your bike covered in tape kinda ruins it!

I wish BMW would modify something so you could select a "Track mode" via the menu options to disable the lights.

Hi,

Unfortunately we didn't develop any headlight protectors for the S1000R when we had our demo bike here.

All the best,
Richard

The fuses are easy to remove....under the pillion seat and easily accessible.  I taped my lights and had no ill effects after a full day of riding.  It takes less than 15 minutes to prepare your bike from coming off the street (yes, I rode 1 hr. 40 to the track) to being ready for Novice group.
