What should I be looking for on this bike re, issues?
The bike dose not have a service history, this worries me some what. Although its in great nick for its age.
I have had BMWs in the past and do most service work myself could the 100k service be completed at home with the right gear, I am in the upper Hunter valley. Not that close to any dealers.
Any thoughts on this possible purchase would really be great.
Thanks in advance
Welcome to the forum.
If I was to buy that bike I would probably be doing the service myself, although I think 100,000 is a basic service (engine oil, gearbox oil, final drive oil, check brake pads, check clutch and brake fluid levels).
I would be inclined to perform the 90,000 service which includes plugs, air filter, fuel filter, change clutch and brake fluids, check valve clearances (anything I've forgotten?)
Things to look at would be quick disconnects on fuel lines, trunk latch, cow bell rear rotor.
Anything that you could think of doing to the LT will be found on here. As for suppliers of parts there is Beemer Boneyard in the US or locally there is Kickstart Components.
Your closest dealer would be Brisans in Newcastle.
Buying your bike is your choice but speaking from personal experience, I bought mine before I found this forum and have never been disappointed with the big girl.
