Re: Considering changing to a K1300 Gt
By the end of production they had most of the bugs worked out of the slant 4 engine. You should have no issues with the GT. There were a few recalls - one in particular was the cam chain jump guard. Easy to check if he does not have a record. Just forward of the clutch there is an access plug that can be removed for access to the crank (have to remove the body panel). You will see the guard in there if it has been installed. It will be a bit buzzier than your RT but it will pull like there is no tomorrow (I traded an 09 GS for mine). Love the ride. Knees will be up tight until you adjust to it.
