Need owners manual for 2001 K1200

I just bought a K1200 without an owners manual. The digital information strip above the 6 radio buttons is missing and I don't know how to reset the clock next to the digital gear number indicator. I think I can get an adapter to fin in the cassette tape player which will let me use a little iPod there. I need to know where to check the oil level and why the brakes squeak. I'm in Utah.

Thanks. The link led to a 31 page com system manual for a newer or fancier BMW than mine. Mine has only the cassette part. Mine is a 2001 model. I could not find a year listed or a page which showed the screen above the 6 radio buttons.

Clean that fogged screen with alcohol and it will clear up. Place the bike on the center stand and wait 15 minutes after a hot shut down. Look through the lower fairing on the right side for a site glass, oil should be within the ring. Clock has two buttons next to it on the dash to set the time.

Oh, yeah, you're right. Well, maybe one of the ones on this page is the right one--

Clymer manual is often recommended: https://www.amazon.com/Clymer-M501-3...mwltconvert-20

Oil level is visible (w/ bike on center stand) from right side below the fin through the round window (flashlight). Should be between 1/2 & full. That glass is replaceable if it gets too hard to see level, btw. Oil filler is in the same neighborhood and requires a long neck filler funnel to reach.

Clock you have should be the older one. Two round buttons above display for hours & min. Hold the button until it cycles through the numbers or press and release to cycle. It stays where you stop.

Here's a BMW repair manual: https://www.liestores.com/upload/man...%20K1200LT.pdf

I'm sure you can still order manuals (Rider, Service, Radio, Alarm........ from dealer.)
