Re: Used K1200LT Purchase Help
The 05 was the "face lift" year where they changed the dash layout, upper the HP and changed the trim a small amount. I would get the "youngest" bike but bare in mind even the 08 is now 12 years old and rubber bits will need to be changed out including brake lines and fuel hoses. Radiator hoses hold up forever as they are EPDM and I have seen radiator leaks before leaky hoses. Even $6 k seems a bit high as these bikes do not hold their value but they are valuable to you if you like it as they do tend to last a long time unless the ABS unit goes out. Then you are looking at a major bill or a bypass. That price is worth it IF they can document the changing of the fuel hoses and brake lines.
