My New (to me) K1200LT is on its way...

Finally had the 2002 LT I bought in California loaded by the transport company and on its way to Denver! Can't wait to get it, should be dropped at BMW of Denver on Tuesday.

I am having the dealer do a few things to it, including an inspection since it hasn't been ridden that often (only 9600 miles). Is there anything I should be asking them to look for during the inspection?

Here's a pic of the black beast...



I will be removing the rear trunk and installing a Ft. Worth rack and I have a Corbin driver/passenger saddle coming for it too.

Congratulations, LT's sure look good in Black.

As for your question: If the previous owner doesn't have service records showing fluid changes, I would change them all - engine oil, trans & diff gear oil, coolant and brake/clutch fluids. This will give you a mileage and time mark to gauge your future maintenance on.

I agree about the fluid replacements. If you tell the dealer you want reliability, they'll use the the annual and milage based BMW recommendations. Perhaps you should pay for a 24K mile service, which includes a new fuel filter (defer to them).

John

Love the black ones! Congrats.

While you are awaiting the bike, think about any farkles you might want to add while the bike will have the plastics off. Want to run an electrical line up to the oddments tray so you can power your little XM receiver? Are you going to install some AUX lights, where you will need to pull power and wire a switch? What about running a power cable for your GPS which you might want to mount on an auxiliary tray above the dash?

If you know "where you want to go" with future electrical farkles, running some wiring now might pay off big time.

Good luck,
Tom
