Re: Thinking about a k1200 or k1300GT to replace my LT
The jump guard would not be factory installed, but it is a recall item and the dealer can check and or install one for free. Since it is a dealer sale, please take it for a reasonably long ride, see if it stalls at stops, that sort of thing. They do run a little rough and are a nasty around town bike, they are made for the road. If it was made after October 2008 it should have the up dated air box, another source of problems.
Check for a jump guard by opening the plug on the right side over the end of the crank. Look in and if you see a dark plastic crescent it is in there. Takes a 55 Torx for the plug.
