Hello everyone,

I'm really new to the K1200lt world...all of 48 hours! My first experiences with the bike have been very good, I love the way I can't notice the handling difference between carrying a pillion or not. The rider backrest is also something that I'd not tried before.

I do have some questions though; It seems that if I don't lock the steering head the radio can be turned on without turning on the ignition. Is that correct?

I have found my way around the radio quite easily but how do I swap between CDs on the CD changer?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Yes, normal.

To change to the next CD, hold the front edge of the control button on the left handle bar for a couple seconds. A quick touch of the same button changes to the next tune. The rear button will do a repeat of the song now playing.

hope O explained it OK.

If not, the guru's will chime in soon, I'm sure.

Thanks for the help. I'm sure I'll get the hang of things over the next few days. I just came into work listening to the same CD. It takes me around one to one and a half hours, depending on the traffic, so a variety of tunes on the CD changer is a good thing. I already have a MP3 adapter which I'll probably end up using more.

Another quick question. Does the radio automatically increase the volume with increased speed? I couldn't really understand how it works, I think the manual isn't that clearly written.

Yep, the faster you go the louder it gets.

The CD changer should change to the next CD after finishing one on it's own. Not sure what keeps it from doing it on it's own.

Good luck

It probably didn't change automatically as I have an anxious thumb over the control button! I'll see what happens on the way home. Thanks again. :)

Here is a quick reference for the radio/CD. It may help.

Thanks for that guide. The manual I have was probably translated from German to English before it got to Portuguese.

BTW Vern, I've got the hang of the CD changer now

One question you asked was bout the radio/CD staying on when the key is turned to the first "off" position. When the bike was new there was a legible "R" in that position.....for "radio". In that position the radio (and CD) still have power while the rest of the bike is turned off. This allows you to listen to the radio while parked, in the garage, etc, if you choose. Turn the key further, and the radio is no longer powered.

You're welcome, just glad I could help a bit.

I sure owe this bunch on here for all the help they were to me in the beginning!
