I just picked up an 08 K1200 GT yesterday with only 14k on the clock. I like the bike so far but its like nothing else I've ridden. I currently have a CBR 1000 and Yamaha Warrior in the stable. Does anyone know where I can download a digital copy of the owners manual? There are so many switches that I'm lost working them. For example I couldn't figure how to turn off the left signal... Right worked just fine. I guess it's just sticking.
Also, I can't figure out how to cycle to the trip meters. Anyone know?
* Rider's Manual.
BMW Motorrad International
-- Click on "K Models"
-- Scroll the list down, then click on + 0597 - K 1200 GT (USA)
-- For a 2008 K1200GT, click on "July 2007 onward"
* Turn Off Left Signal:
Click the cancel button with your right thumb. The cancel button is above the right turn signal, with crossed-out left and right arrows on the label. The same cancel button turns off both the left and right turn signals.
Hint #1: The turn signals auto-cancel if you are moving, based on time, speed, and distance. (It seems like 20 seconds to me.)
Hint #2: If you press both left and right turn signals as the same time, they will both blink at once as an emergency flasher. To cancel, click the cancel button.
* Cycle (Reset) the Trip Meters
Click the left rubber button in the dash to choose the desired trip meter. It alternates between Trip 1 and Trip 2. When the desired trip meter is displayed, press and hold the left rubber button down until it resets. (Be careful, if you let go slightly, you may switch trip meters and reset the wrong one.)
Enjoy your new K1200GT!
