    Perhaps the wire connector to the temperature gauge sensor has become disconnected or is corroded?

    Rapid. The sensor is up under the nose of the fairing, a fair way back,on the left, about level with the left indicator. Black, 3/16" diameter, 1 1/2" long. I've given the measurements in imperial as I assume either your in America or Britain/Ireland.

    Rapid - Dave described the sensor position exactly. It has a long pointed nose on it and is a push fit into a hole under the left fairing. The connector wire comes off the sensor by pushing a tab in on the side. Might be loose or the sensor could be faulty.

    I might add that my 2007 R1200R had a recall for its temperature sensor, which was replaced by my BMW dealer when I still owned the bike. However, I never noticed any problem with the sensor before or after it was replaced. My guess is that the recall had something to do with emissions compliance and some of the temperature probes were likely giving incorrect readings that resulted in a Booster Plug type fueling alteration.

    Rapid, are you referring to the ambient air temperature readout on the dash or the engine temperature readout? The later GT's have both.

    If it looks ok and the connector is ok I'd start with a 2nd hand sensor. The ambient temp sensor is used on pretty much every BMW car and motorcycle in the last 10+ years.
