Re: New bike
Welcome to a very small group.
I'm not sure if this is the proper way to slow down, but I've found that when slowing down (when I would normally release the gas and use the transmission/engine to slow me down) if you quickly pull in the clutch and then release it as if you have changed gears, only you don't, it make slowing down, very smooth. You can brake at the same time.
Hope that wasn't too confusing!
Takes longer to describe than to do!
I too came from an 02 K1200LT and found that most of the mods and farkles that I added to my last bike were unnecessary on the K1600. The factory did except for the horn!
That I did.
