K1200GT Help/ Advice
Hey Guys, New Idiot here so bear with me. After years of Riding GS's and an X650 Challenge, I had a bunch of surgery this winter and wanted an easier bike to get on and off of and at 44 am probably done off-roading. So I rode a K1200GT Loved it and bought it. It is a 55,000 mile 06 every toy in the world on it, as new shape. I did not like the racket it made at an idle (mostly with the clutch out) so I switched to BMW synthetic oil, it helped. Now I have two issues. The original owner had replaced the exhaust at nearly no miles, he sold that exhaust and re-installed the factory stuff when I bought it. Now when I ride the bike Hard, Real hard i get this nasty smell. My guess was it was the beginning of the end of this 55,000 mile clutch. Well out in Western Nebraska yesterday I rode about 5 miles @ 130ish MPH.. at the next stop /// Same smell. Could this be burning nasty crap out of the converter that has probably never been that hott. The smell never is / was that Brake -- Clutch stink you would expect...
Also my girlfriend is very uncomfortable on the back. I think the stock seat pitches her forward and the pegs seem high for the passenger.
Any input is appreciated.
