    Gen2 Left side switchgear loose

    So far I lost the left side bar end weight (dealership kindly warrantied it)
    Now the left switchgear along with the grip has progressively come loose
    on the bars (I will have the dealer look at it just don't have the time right now)
    but for now anyone know how to tighten this assembly back down?

    Peel back the grip near the switchgear about where the crook of your thumb/fore finger sits, you will see a small allen/torx head (can't remember which) tighten slightly. Job done

    What RyanGTXR said   :028:...pretty common on the XR's & GS's and all BMW's with the same switchgear.

    Smithy.

    Thank you so much- Yup Job done, basically the whole assembly is similar to the lock on grips on my MTB, didn't realize it was that straight forward

    That damn set screw was practically fully backed out, at first I thought it was stripped,
    because I had to wind down on it so much...but eventually tightened up-
    Now I'm thinking maybe I should've put a drop of lock-tite on it?
    guess I'll do that if it backs out again

    Funny... had the bagger, R1250GSA, R1250R, S1000R
    never had one loose on those- only issue prior to this was the intermittent
    left S/G on the S1R
    glad this was a simple thing
