Thanks.

I frequent several motorcycle forums, and this is by far the most polite and helpful of them all. Collectively, there is more knowledge about the K1200 LT than at half the BMW dealerships in the US.

I just wanted to say thanks to all those guys out there that helped me keep my bike on the road through posting (sometimes actually through donated/lent parts and tools). It is a breath of fresh air to see the good in humanity of this forum.

So, if nobody else tells you - thanks.

Re: Thanks.

I agree with everything you say. If jzeiler had a dollar for every time he's helped someone here he would have a good down payment on a new BMW! The others here are just as nice.

53 MPG and life just keeps getting better

I'll drink to that! I am still in love with my LT and it is 99% because of this forum. The LT gets 1% of the credit.

Yes, I likely would have traded in the LT if not for this forum and learning how to prevent things like QD failures.

Unfortunately, nothing can be done to prevent an oil leak that takes out the clutch. I have had oil seepage under the intermediate housing for 2-3 years now and I had one clutch slip event last summer so I am pretty sure I have that failure in process.

However, I will probably tackle the job myself at some point given what I have read here by those who have gone down this path before...

Agreed! Thanks to the good folks here on this board, I not only learned about the clutch slave weep hole but I gathered the knowledge and confidence to complete the job myself.
