    Because there isn't an answer.

    You can only use different links for different exhaust set ups if you have a specific chip in your motronic.


    If you haven't chipped the moronic it makes no difference what your exhaust set up is.
    Your overcomplicating a simple link. Typical american

    Would you have to do this link mod on R1200GSA 2011 model, if you were going to change either the downpipes or end can or both

    Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo,

    That's the diagram for if you have a BB chip in your motronic.

    Totally pointless for a normal bike.

    I have a yellow coded plug, standard exhaust and air filter but the bike doesnt run smoothly... it vibes at around 3500rpm and doesnt pick up smoothly - i balanced it many times and after some miles it returns to working rough. will removing the cat code plug help? Consumption is around 46mpg around town and 65mpg if i keep it to 60 / 65mph....any help is appreciated!

    Pull the cat code plug and try it out. I have ridden 80,000kms after removing mine and the bike is fine. You won't hurt anything by trying it out.

    I removed what i think is the cat code plug but the bike did not start! Just under the fuses i have an empty socket? (maybe its removed already????)

    My 99 r1100gs was getting 30-35mpg with no plug so I steptoe linked 30-37-37a. Hope I've done the right thing. Will report back with mileage at the end of this tank.

    The pic link above shows my steptoe link wiring.

    I can't believe the user above was getting 46mpg around town!?
