Hello, brand new to this forum. I've been reading the posts and found them helpful. Am thinking about purchasing a 2002 K1200 LT Elite from a private owner. Has a little over 12,000 miles. Looks in excellent condition. I test drove it yesterday and noticed that there is what appears to be gear noise. It starts when the bike starts moving. At around 50 MPH, the noise is covered up by wind and road noise. There is no vibration and no clunking. Bike shifts with no issues. The noise doesn't match what others have described for the final drive failure. Does anyone recognize the symptoms? I was using a borrowed half face helmet; my normal one is full face with lots of padding, so I don't know if this noise is normal. Thanks for any comments!
