The only thing I will add to other than OEM relays being used, is the starter relay is specific to BMW motorcycles .

There is a diode inside the OEM relay, if you use a relay without this diode, there's the possibility that every time you pull the clutch lever in, the neutral light will come on .

I'll give up my R65, when they pry my cold dead hands from the handlebars !!!!!
