Re: reverse gear on k1200lt
Press and hold the starter button. The bike should reverse as long as the button is held. The starter motor is actually powering the bike and the engine RPM will rise slightly to increase alternator output to make up for the current draw. Since these are straight cut gears you may have to rock the bike a bit to get them to engage. Also there will be an illuminated "R" on the dash when you are in the reverse position.
