2002 K1200LTC

Hello everyone! Looking at buying a meticulously cared for (per the owners words) K1200LTC with 31000 miles. I've ridden and looked the bike over and all seems well but it was my FIRST time on a BMW bike so I really didn't know exactly what to expect or to look for other than the obvious. It's a very clean bike with some upgrades such as stainless braided brake lines, PIAA driving lights mounted in the front fairing, and Xenon headlight installed. Seller says the fluids have been changed as recommended and that the final drive is fine. I've read horror stories about the final drive and that worries me. My other concern is the weight of the bike. I'm 5'11'' and 200# but I still had to tip toe it when at a standstill. I don't know if there is a way to lower it slightly. It does have an aftermarket seat that sits wide which kept my legs further apart when standing and I'm thinking with the original seat that may be corrected and give me a better stopping stance to hold the bike upright. I've owned about every brand out there but this would be my first BMW. Looking for some true insight as to what to ask and look for before pulling the trigger on this beauty in the next few days. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
