Best Year K1200GT - Asking for a Friend

I ride an RT. My buddy sold his GSA and is looking for the earlier model K1200GT - before the body change.

I'd appreciate any advice you could share - thanks in advance.

Re: Best Year K1200GT - Asking for a Friend

I picked up an '04 GT back in April, only had 14,000 on it, now has over 18,000. The only thing I fixed where the quick release fuel connectors on the tank. The originals are plastic and from what I read on the forums, break very easily, so I changed to metal ones.
I've had no problems with the bike and your friend will find the acceleration and speed difference between his older GSA and a GT like night and day.
I liked the older style of '05 and earlier as opposed to the "slab side" style of the newer ones.
Nice bike , he'll enjoy it.
