Keyless on 2021
on: May 09, 2021, 05:25:46 PM
Watched username kates video which showed her fuelling keyless bike looks like the key is required for tank cap unlike other models also at dealership noticed there are no visable bolts to remove and fit givi tank bag ring minor points but worth noting.

Looks like pretty much the same arrangement that the gen 1 and 2 bikes have. There’s also a couple of screws on top of the tank holding down the front cover, so Wunderlich are probably already working on a tank bag that will attach in the same way as it does on the gen 1 and 2 bikes - assuming the current bag doesn’t fit anyway.

I've ordered the Hepco Becker tank bag adaptor for the s1000rr which appears to have the same screw less tank lid. When you open the tank, there are 4 screws under the cover which you remove to take off the whole filler cover and then use then swap the opening section to the tank ring and replace with the Hepco Becker mount. There's a couple of YouTube videos with the how to. Hoping it fits.

Not familiar with the gen1/2 petrol cap so watched a video on you tube and the bolts are inside when cap open so chances are their givi tank ring might fit new one.

Yes, I watched the Username Kate vid on the new S1000R. I am too puzzled about keyless ignition but you need a key to refuel it. Pointless!   :112: She also remarked on the seat height which seems higher than the previous model. A great looking bike though.  :028:

Loved her vagina remark.   :008:  She certainly knows how to ride a bike, ridden many track days and has more balls than most blokes (me included).   :164:

The product manager for this bike said the keyless fuel lock was omitted due to weight saving.  This was the design brief for the bike.  If the keyless fuel cap was installed it would require another plastic cover to hide the cables, and this would have added weight.  It was advertised in the initial sales blurb as keyless lite.  I would like to see an accessory for people to add this to the model if you already have keyless ignition.

Good point there, but how much weight would it really save? If you want weight saving then look for it elsewhere like losing a few lockdown pounds as a prime example.  :002:

One of my previous bikes (an FJR) had one key for everything including the panniers. Now, that makes sense to me.  :028:

Easier to change for a spin off race type filler? The keyless mechanism sits on the tank side of the r1250gs which may interfere with an aftermarket filler (and going by one on the island here, the keyless filler mechanism isn't totally faultless).

 The keyless key it comes with, had a flip out blade. Seems like a non issue to me?
