Re: Replace battery and flush fuel system
Hey Henry...congrats on your purchase of a K1200LT. It's an amazing touring machine.
The other basic maintenance item you'll want to do is change the brake fluid. Depending on the age of the bike, you may also have to consider changing out the brake lines as the rubber ones will deteriorate over time. Also, aged brake fluid can be really tough on ABS components.
You might want to add the year of the bike to your signature, as this will help the many experts on this forum help diagnose any issues you may have in the future.
