New Guy K1200 LTC to K1600GTLE (Tire pressure/Pannier Bars)

Hello from the Dallas area...

I just bought a used 2014 K1600 GTLE. I have only ridden 650 miles so far, The cold tire pressure on the P4 shows 42.0 psi, is this the best pressure for tire life?

I'm looking for a good quality set of Pannier Bars and whom to contact?

Than You In Advance

42# is the proper pressure.
Use an accurate tire pressure gauge as the tpm is generally off by 2-4 psi.
May I suggest joining the BMW K1600 Forum : BMW K1600 GT and GTL Forums forum as it is dedicated to the K1600 family.

Welcome to the forum. Way to stir up trouble on your first post by opening a tire conversation...but you probably didn't know that. If you go to the other forum, enjoy it too.

Welcome to the GTLE, they're fantastic bikes! Here's what the C4 bars look like on the rear and Altrider's on the front (to replace the stock bars that allow the GTL/GTLE's to almost lay flat on their sides @13 degrees, vs Altrider's 33 degree), and an RDL seat. The C4 bars don't interfere with the pannier's leg positioning like other versions are known to do.
