    Rear blinker replacement

    Hello,

    Could somebody help me please, who had replaced the rear blinkers?
    Based on the factory manual all the back of the bike needs to be disassembled (incl. luggage holders etc..). I already removed the 4 clip pin and the screws to remove the bottom part of the tail, but I guess the lock barrel keep the bottom side of the tail in place.

    Does somebody know a faster and easier method?  :016:
    Could be the lock barrel removed with the paper clip method and after that can I remove the bottom part of the tail?

    Thanks for any answer and I wish you a happy holidays/New Year.

    BR,
    Mark

    I had the same task when fitting the Weiser Technik Wizards to separate braking and indicating on the rear “lights”. I don’t see any easy way to short cut it because the indicator connectors are held in a plastic box where the rear lock barrel is located, which is held together with 2 black T20 Torx screws. Therefore all the rear racking  and the side panels need to come off to get into the “box”. It only took me about 15 minutes and that was when I wasn’t sure what had to be removed. I could probably do it in less than 10 minutes even with the rear rack for the top box fitted. Your profile photo shows a gen 1 - I have a gen 2 but the rear end isn’t massively different.

    He has a Gen-1...totally different animal.

    I had to get to the lock barrel on my gen 1 for something a few years ago and don’t recall any way of getting to that area without taking all the rear and side panels off.

    This diagram looks like it’s for your bike. You need to get to the area around part #14: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=0D03-EUR-10-2016-K49-BMW-S_1000_XR_0D03,_0D13_&diagId=46_1773

    The fixing bolts of the tail is already removed, but looks like the cylinder barrel is connected with the Item 10 on your drawing and that keep the tail still in position. Thats why I wondering, maybe SB. knows a trick.  :038:
