Looking for a clymer for a 2007 K1200GT

I was reading in another thread about using a clymer manual to help with work on the bike. I used the dealer CD this last weekend, and it left something to be desired. It's not that easy to follow, and while it got me in the ball park of the air filter and what to look for, I didn't find it very detailed. Maybe the dealer techs are just more up on things.

So, where can I find a clymer for a 2007 K1200GT? The ones I've found stop at 2005. Is there no "next gen" version yet?

No, there aren't. We just kind of suffer along doing the trial and error thang and using that real confusing RepRom. I'd love to have a manual in my hands, too.

Thanks Grif.

BTW, I looked for the howto on k-bikes.com that you suggested for replacing the air filter and couldn't find one. I don't know if I looked in the wrong place, bit I figured it out.

But, since I had the panels off (left, right, top, I didn't know what I was doing when I started), I thought I may as well farkelize some more. I don't know when it'll be ridable again.

Well, you were looking for air filter and I have it under the Stebel horn.

I know.

I pulled the air filter when doing the horn. Bad excuse, but the only one I have.

Not a problem. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something that might be a great future resource. The Stebel install information was very helpful. I would've had a hard time finding the OEM horn control wire without it.

I made an effort to contact Clymer and Haynes to ask them to publish manuals for the 2006+ K1200GT.

Clymer responded to thank me for my input. They also described the complexities of creating a manual - which includes buying an example motorcycle and doing a complete and systematic teardown.

If enough people write, perhaps it will encourage them. Honestly, considering the serial numbers and assumed production counts that I've seen for K1200GTs on these forums, it is hard to imagine how the relatively low number of Clymer manual sales could cover their costs for the K1200GT that they would need for the teardown photos.
