    I am currently looking for a vertically folding armrest for my 2009 K1200LT, kind of like the ZTechnik ones. These appear not to be manufactured any more, most of the posts ended in 2013. Are there other options out there? I have seen the YouTube video of the modified Gold Wing armrests,and...

    I ride a 06 K1200LT. It only has 10000 miles on it and I recently developed water leak that now seems like I has changed to oil. It only leaks after I return from a ride. My thoughts are this is related to the water/oil pump. Wondering if any one has experienced this before.

I owned the bike for 4 years and changed all fluids annually. I used only high quality German liqui-Moly fully synth engine oil, gear oil, and Bosch filters...

    Has anyone added a USB connector to the audio system to allow playing MP3 files on a USB drive? I'd be more than willing to give up my 6 CD changer and replace it with a way to allow USB music streaming.

    Last August, with 52,500 miles on the bike, I embarked on a 7 state adventure and returned home at 56,922 miles. Why do I tell you this? Because it's awesome and because that's where the clutch slipping started, on the last 350 miles. Since then, I've put another 900 miles on the bike just...

    Good Morning, I recently purchased a 2002 K1200. The bike looked to be in good condition, 8400 miles, new tires and never laid down. The seller informed me it had been sitting a "few" months and needed a new battery. After replacing the battery the bike would turn over but never start. I tried...
