I thinking of trading in my 05 KLT for one of the newer 1600s. I kind of like the GT seating a little better as I like the little more sporty feel to that, but I'd really have to ride both for a while to know for sure. Has anybody ridden both for any length of time to compare? There actually does not seem to have been enough difference for BMW to have made two models out of this bike. With the seat height, pegs, and handlebars being the only differences, it seems this could have been taken care of by adding options on those so you could have one or the other with relative ease and wouldn't have had to choose. Have these bikes turned up any significant issues? Also, how about ease of maintenance of these two bikes? It looks like oil changes would be easier, with the oil filter right out there in the open. How about valve adjustments? Changing the tranny fluid? Some of those are a pain on my LT.
