    2002 k1200gt

    Just bought a 2002 K2002GT today, will pick this bike up next week. It has 8000 mile and yes I probably paid too much but I love the color, same as my old
    R1100gs " RED "". as I look around the web I don't find much on this bike.
    What's up ?your thoughts, wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you mean red 2003 K1200GT?
    In the US there was only an 03 and 04 K1200GT and in Canada there was a 05 K1200GT.
    The 03 and 04 K1200GT red was called Piedmont Red.

    Thanks Lee, sorry about none use of caps on the K and GT. The BMW shop in Grand Rapids listed it as a 2002. Haven't seen the title. Maybe the owner bought it in 2002 . Ether way thank you for the info.

    Carnal thoughts about a motorcycle, me bad.

    She's a babe. The details aren't that important. If she runs good and hard and add gorgeous, I'd ride her till she's ------------------Oh me bad again.
    1997 R1100RT (Restored Basket Case) , 1981 KZ 440 LTD (Restored Basket Case)
    3xR90/6, two just sold, one for a sidecar.
    1983 K100RS for winter project, two K's sold and just acquired a very rough R80RT.

    BMW called and said they found the title, and it's a 2004. same as on their web. Seems like owner reviews were great but no so with magazine writers . They had a 2007 GT sitting next to the 2004GT for a little more money and a lot more bike, but it wasn't red. Can't wait to ride it. Thanks for your tips.

    Be careful when you depart from the dealer. It looks like they "Armor-All"ed the whole tire. That's a beauty.

    Two things to do before you hit the road: 1) Verify you have metal fuel line quick disconnect fittings (QD's). 2) Verify your engine isn't on the fuel pump flange recall list.

    1) There are two sets of QD's to allow removing the fuel tank without fiddling with hose clamps, etc. BMW used white plastic fittings. The male end of the fitting snaps off near the body of the fitting, potentially letting fuel spill onto the engine. Not a good thing... There are host of sources for replacement, metal QD's. To verify what's on your bike, look through the opening into the engine area (on the brake side, not the clutch side). You should see at least one QD. If it's metal, all's well. If it's white plastic, replace both of them!!!

    2) BMW has been found to have a problems with the mounting flange for fuel pumps on a wide range of products. The quick check is to verify your year and model against the list of involved bikes. If you have an affected bike, fix it. Losing a fuel pump so ruins your day...
    When it comes to thinking, some people will stop at nothing.
