R1150 Starter Post Install

How to Install a Starter Direct Connector

  1. In 2004 BMW started shipping the GS Adventurer with a feature that enabled the bike to be jumpstarted via a post attached directly to the starter. Prior to that you would have to remove the seat and try to access the battery which is located under the gas tank.

    Adding this feature to your bike is not that difficult and costs less than $30 in parts. The whole installation should take less than an hour with the majority of the time being spent locating and drilling the hole for the positive post in the starter cover.
