Thanks everyone for allowing me post on this forum. As I am a new member and a brand new BMW owner, I am starting with a very simple question. As I have always rode Asian bikes which have a noticeable "clunk" when shifting into first gear, I'm not feeling that on my 2000 K1200LT. I bought the bike yesterday and this is the first thing I noticed. It does go into first but someitmes not as soon as you push down on the shifter. Have to wait for the neutral light to go out. Is this normal? Is it becasue it's so cold here in KY? Do I need to change out fluids? Sorry for the spazzing.... it is a beautiful bike with only 38,000 miles. But as you can tell, I'm not at all familiar with German Engineering and will probably wear this forum out. Thanks so much in advance !
