    dencof. From the amount of posts it seems to be common over the whole F800 range. The main reason for this occurring is that, to meet EU/US environmental regulations, the fuel/air mixture at idle and...

    James. I think the reason most owners don't change their tail lights when they do their turn signals is that it involves a fair bit of work and dismantling. Also, other than probably longer life,...
