When I crank on the throttle at say 4k she rips forward and pulls hard until around 7 to 7.5rpm where it flattens out a little and then pulls really hard again.
Is this normal?
Or, fuel pump issues, clutch???
Has anyone else experienced this?

I just bought an '08 K1200GT with 27k on the clock, had it fully serviced, etc. It has a bunch of power, all the way thru. when i first got the bike is stalled very so often, had a weird stumble in it, which was intermittent... that is... i had no idea when it would stumble, but then it would "catch up", and zoom right along. The prior owner had all the documents stating everything had been updated, etc... i had no real solid idea what to think, nor the time, so i took it to a bmw shop that i've had work on my GSA. anyways... the GT is fast. I've put less than 300 miles on it so far.
I've been buying and selling a bunch of bikes in the last couple of years, mostly just seeing what they are all about. I have kept a 2000 Aprillia Mille R that I seem to like a bunch, and a '05 GSA. The GT seems pretty damn quick. no doubt its super smooth and freeway fast like crazy. Which is what i bought it for... obviously a sport tourer.
I'm thinking 3rd gear gets you into triple digits. I don't think I'd ever snap it wide open in first, 2nd is pretty damn brisk... feels like the front wheel will come up... 3rd i have no problem opening it up... its just that now its way over the speed limit.
the power band on my bike has power all the way thru. nice "rush" that comes on.
