Re: ABS Gap Spec. for 1999LT
Thanks for the guidance. Nothing is broken, but I am going through the bike and doing well overdue maintenance. Covid-19 gives me the time to do that. My 1999 has 44k on it and frankly I have not really taken as good care of it as I should. So I decided it was either time to get a new bike, or invest in the one I have. I love the K1200lt and decided it was worth it to put some money and time into it. I am reasonably mechanical, but this is the first time I have really gotten the bike stripped down and done what is necessary. Its a long list. One of the things on the list was Spiegler brake lines, while at it I pulled the rear caliper, changed the pads, and removed the ABS sensor to clean it (as suggested by manual). Thats when I decided to check the gap on the ABS. Since I am not having any errors, I will leave it be for now. Don't fix what is not broken I guess.
The rest of the list... I did my first valve clearance adjustment 3 buckets changed, Fixed the broken fuel level sending unit, removed that charcoal canister that caused the problem, air filter, fuel filter, new stainless quick disconnect fuel connectors, brake lines and pads (have not yet finished the bleeding), rebuilt the steering damper with new seals, new plugs and wires, coolant flush, clutch fluid flush, Back-off brake module added, and am in the process of re-installing the shocks (sent to EPM to add the progressive springs). I changed the rear drive fluid and transmission fluid last year and only put 2k miles on the bike last year due to a busy year at work, so I will skip that this year.
None of this would be possible without the help of all you guys here at the forum (and years of posts to sort through), and of course Kirk's videos. In the end, I hope this bike will last me a long time. And I owe you all a big thanks!
