  1. K1200LT
    Hello folks, I’m brand new to the BMW world and purchased a K1200 LT yesterday unfortunately it’s been sitting a couple years and I’m trying to get it running. The new battery is coming tomorrow and it was suggested I drain the fuel system prior to trying to start. Unfortunately I’m a novice and...
  2. RT Series
    Hi everyone, thanks for having me. :wave My new/old '06 R1200RT is now in my garage. While it sat in my cousin's garage (the original owner), the battery has died. I have had it hooked up to a charger (I disconnected the battery first) on 2A overnight, and no progress. Questions: 1. Should I...

  4. RT Series
    I went to ride my 2014 RT a couple of days ago and it was completely dead. I had not ridden in probably 3 weeks or more, but I was surprised that it was completely dead. When I turn on the key I get nothing. I recently put the top case back on and the light works inside the case. I am concerned...
  5. K1200LT
    Greetings fellow riders! :wave I have been riding my 2000 K1200LT since 2004 and thoroughly enjoy it. I perform all my own maintenance so I'm pretty competent on the bike's ins and outs, but I've got a problem that is baffling me. :confused: And it doesn't help that the dealer is closed on...

  7. Batteries, Chargers, & Electrical
    I was looking to replace my stock battery on an 2009 RT and the Odyssey seems to be a popular choice. My concern is that the BMW charger (canbus) is not listed as an approved charger. Does anyone have experience with this combination of charger and battery? Thanks - Bluerocker
  8. K1200LT
    Strange things has been happening. When I leave the 2003 LT in 1st gear, the battery drains to the point of not being able to start the bike in 9 - 10 hours. Thought I had a bad battery, but ran all the tests from the manufacturer and that looks good. I started leaving it in 1st gear at work...
  9. Batteries, Chargers, & Electrical
    I searched the site for battery suggestions. It seems that the Odyssey PD 680 is a desirable battery for my K1200LT. I assume that PD 680 is a model number, not a size. Unfortunately when I went to Odyssey's website I got this message. There is currently no battery match for this vehicle...
