Talking I'm Back

I just got back from Norman, Oklahoma where I signed the papers on an 05 K1200LT. It has 15K on it and no scratches that I could see. It's in good shape and ready to go. I only gave $8K for it. I thought that was fair enough. It doesn't have all the bells and whistle that my LTE had but it has the ones I wanted and use. All I'll have to change is the windscreen. It has some kind of shorty on it. I at least want a tall stock screen. I'm sure I'll have to change all the fluids first thing and drill the weep hole. Other than that I just wanna ride. .............

Re: I'm Back

Glad to see you found another LT. I do have to say that the newer LT's run better than my old 02 LTE did. So hopefully yours will be better than your last one....

Enjoy making it yours!

Re: I'm Back

Am I missing something here?? To drill the weep hole it requires complete disassembly to point of removal of slave cyl does it not?

Doesn't matter what you ride, but ride it, don't spend all your time polishing!

You are correct...but I guess I don't see your point. I wouldn't think twice about doing the same thing if I had a new ride. Just my two cents.

Re: I'm Back

The 03 LTE I bought with 15K on it had the clutch go out at 19K from a leaking slave. I learned real quick how to work on an LT..............
