I have a Clymer repair manual which states that it covers the K1200LT models from 1998 to 2008. I've only seen very minor differences between the 2006 to 2008 instructions and the 2009 model.
Sometimes I look at the pictures and instructions for a minute or so because of some variation, but have been able to do my own routine maintenance (including brake pads).
Biggest difference I've had trouble with is the color schemes in the wiring diagrams at the back of the manual. For some reason, the 2009 sometimes has different two color wires than is shown in the book, but the basic wiring harness is exactly as shown in the manual.
I have, from time to time, seen references to someone seeing a 2010 LT, but if so that must be one that sat on a dealers showroom floor for some time.
My 2007 was made in April of 2007 as per my serial number ZL73778 shown on the chart.
So it looks like you can use the Clymers for the late and last models of our LT. My Clymers states that it's good for up to 2008 I think and I've yet to find anything on the bike that the manual doesn't cover.... except for the extra money we need - :bmw:
