Re: GT Down Again
I have a 2008 K1200GT with the same problem of surging to over 2500 RPM after coming to a stop. Additional problem; I downshifted into first, with the clutch in, and didn't like what I heard. The dealer replaced my airbox and did the software upgrade. Still not running right at lower rpms. For you trouble shooters, now it does this: Over 4000-5000 feet altitude my idle stays briefly above 1500-2000 rpm then slows for a brief moment at 1500rpm then settles to the normal idle speed approximately 1100 rpm. Took it back down the mountain to about 2,500 feet altitude and it worked normal.
Frank or anyone, any additional insight before I drop off my bike at the dealer.
