I may have the opportunity to get a good deal on a 2005 (I think) K1200S that's been sitting in a friend's garage...
So, the Big Question is - what should I look for/at before plunking down my money?
I tried looking at the on-line Kelly Blue Book, but got nowhere useful from that; does anybody know of a "real" link to their bikes section, or an equivalent function?
I've had a K75S and a K100LT, but I know this is a completely different animal. I rode this bike quite a bit a few years ago, and it ran & handled very well indeed (woo-hoo!), but I don't know if it has all the Official Updates or if the owner kept the service up to date (service records are probably not handy).
I know my local dealer can check for updates with its VIN; I've heard they got several, and maybe a change to the airbox too? And I've seen in other posts something about a "PC V", what's that?
Will it need brake lines, or did the factory get these right?
Will certain plastic or rubber bits (hoses, manifolds, whatever) be needing replacement?
