Questions about this product?

The Cockpit Cover 2 covers the void around the R1200GS instruments. In addition, it features a BMW socket aux. outlet! For example, mobile phones or GPS units can thus be plugged into the cockpit directly without having to run annoying cables around the motorbike.

Because of the 15A fused DIRECT battery connection, these units can be charged & powered even when ignition is off. The outlet can also be used for charging the motorycle battery without special BMW battery charger. 044-0560 can also be used for all electric tire pumps (like 070-0289 for example) that require a minimum of 10Amps. The stock R1200GS factory accessory outlet is controlled by the CANbus system, which can shut off after one minute, also limits the current to 5A. Factory BMW outlet is not sufficient to operate a tire pump, for example.

This black cover is made from powder-coated aluminium and includes stainless steel mounting. It fits perfectly. The unit can be fitted alone or in conjunction with the Cockpit Cover 1 , item number 044-0550. Does NOT fit with 040-0663.Fits GS and Adventure

  • DIRECT connection to battery by-passing CANbus
  • 15A to operate air pump
  • Charge motorcycle battery with regular battery charger
  • For model years 2005-2007 (from 2008 use 044-0563)

On the plus side, the dash and outlet work great and looks good. On the negative side, installing this dash makes removing the headlight assembly much harder. The headlight assembly can no longer be removed with the two bolts that allow the headlight and instrument cluster to be removed as one unit, since the instrument cluster is trapped by the dash. Normally this is not an issue, unless you are in the parking lot of a hotel in Chihuahua Mexico replacing a light bulb and the clip comes loose because the plastic guides had dry rotted and snapped off. It would be nice to see this dash redesigned with different mounts.
