Re: Thoughts on this 2004 K1200LT
Well it looks clean. But you are buying a 15 year old bike, and most important would be any service history that you can find. There are loads of things that it will need, if they have not been done. 46K is nothing for a bike of that age. But if it hasn't had steel brake lines, quick disconnects for the fuel lines, and other crucial maintenance, your low price-I think 3400 is decent-will be eaten quickly with other issues. The backrest and pegs are standard upgrades.
Does the seller give you any idea of the history of the bike?
In either case, this forum will give you just about all you need to keep it going for years to come. I have a 2000, with 207K and leave for Jasper and Banff next week. They are great machines.
