Okay, as soon as I sell my waverunner i plan to buy another K1200LT. I say this becasue I used ot own a 2000 K1200LT Icon model. It was a great bike and I put over 20k miles trouble free. This was back when I bought the bike new. How have thee bikes held up in the long term. I know the 99 models didnt come with the skidplate so I would prefer to go 2000 or newer. With my price range a 2003 seems to be about as new as I can get. Are there any problems I should look for. Whats the max mileage someone would recomend? I knwo some smoke on startup is normal but this varies from bike to bike. I have owned other Kbikes and r bikes as well. I have owned 2 R1100Rt's, a K1200Rs and a 2003 K1200GT as well so I am pretty familiar with these, just not as many of the, "special needs" this bike may have needed. I have hear rear ends and stereos are normal to go out that appears to be all. Please help as I will hopefully be in the market soon.
