Out of the K1200LT Business

Well, folks, I did it. I traded my LT for a 2016 top of the line Goldwing with 12,000 miles. I will have a Hannigan sidecar attached in a couple of months. I do have some leftover parts that I will post for sale with pictures. I have a heated Russell driver and passenger seat with heated passenger backrest, a Dauntless trailer hitch, a rear wheel with good tire and a front wheel minus discs and maybe a few other leftovers. I will post in the next few days. I will continue to lurk on this forum just because it is so civilized.

Re: Out of the K1200LT Business

By any chance do you have passenger arm rests? How much for seat?

Robert, I would be interested in your heated seats if they would fit my 99 LT

What would you need to get for both of
them?

Re: Out of the K1200LT Business

Congrats on the new bike! I assume you will be sharing comparisons between the LT and the Wing in due time?

Sorry, no arms. I'm looking for $750 for the heated driver seat, passenger seat and heated passenger backrest. All are in great condition.

Russ, you would have to do what I did for my 2000. I cut own the bodywork and added two screws with captured nuts.

Right off the bat, the low-speed handling is far superior. I really miss the electrically operated windshield. On the Honda, you have to stop and undo two latches then physically move the shield then lock the arms down. Lots of torque, pulls strongly from 2000 rpm, redline at 6000 although I see no reason to spin it that fast. Seats seem to be good, time will tell. Rain protection is just about as good as the K1200. Listed fuel mileage is 35mpg on 86 octane. More later.
