2005 K1200LT Preventative maintenance
I have a 2005 K1200LT Trike with about 40,000 miles. I had to go to the trike when I could no longer pick the bike up when I dropped it. Fortunately that did't have very often. My previous bike was a 2002 K1200LT with about 85,000 Miles on it. It has become difficult for me to work on the bike as I am now 78 years old. So, I string it out over a longer period of time. I love the LT's. I am looking for your suggestions and recommendations. So, here it goes. The bike is running great at the present, but I am now getting worried that I should do some preventative maintenance due to it's age and I don't want to have a problem this riding season.
1) I doubt the fuel filter has been changed. So, the work level to get to the fuel filter is so great, perhaps I should change all the parts in the fuel tank. Also, the use of ethenal fuel may have eroded the rubber parts.
2) I plan to also change the air filter.
3) Are there other parts or hoses, such as brake hoses, that should be considered changing at the same time?
I have been pricing parts. WOW. So, also give me your recommendations for after market parts.
