I fitted the Matt Gecko light units as I like the more modern look they give, fitted myself and will say happy with the results.

As for headlights I personally use a pair of Auxito Z1 LED s that work really well and make the bike look nicer too.

Antares, are the Auxito Z1's a plug and play? Do the affect the canbus system?  :084: or is effect??

I do like me some bright lights..  :034:

Yea, I tried out a bunch of auxito lights and these give the best spread and brightness, although there is a new model that looks ti be even better but I didn't try those. The Z1 is also pretty small and I already have a model for bigger 3D lightbulb caps if needed. No canbus error at all.

I'll post some pics in a bit

Do youbrecommend manuel one or the bmw original part ?

I would use an A.P.E. manual chain tensioner for replacement,  fairly cheap and a good design.
I have 56,000 miles on my 2016, they are dependable bikes.

Not sure but I may have highest mileage XR, at least that I know of. My 2016 XR has 78760 fantastic miles on it. I`ve only had OE battery and headlight bulb issues.

I believe there's a lass in the US who has many more miles on her bike than that, I think she had 70k+ miles on hers....and that was a few years ago.

I've only just passed 50k km, (~31k miles)...so nowhere near the highest.

Headlamps - Matt Gecko LED ...

AGREE on the headlamps ... a very worthwhile upgrade IMHO ... and I like the new price point!
