    K1200gt 2007 - construction status

    I purchased the DVD Repair Manual. I have the 6th Edition, 06/2013.

    My vehicle type code is 0587 (Canada) and my motorcycle was produced on 22 May 2007 (from what I can tell on the BMW MOTORRAD MONTAGEAUFTRAG). When I access the DVD, I am supposed to select the construction status from the following:

    1. Baseline construction status

    2. Construction status, July 2006
    BMW MOTORRAD INTEGRAL-ABS Generation II

    3. Construction status August 2007
    New maintenance concept

    4. Construction status March 2008
    changed position of teh oil drain plug in the rear-wheel drive

    Are the above benchmarks starting points from which production of the motorcycle starts?

    Can anyone tell me the major differences that applied during those specific time frames mentioned above?

    Does anyone know the meaning of the PROD. NR. : 2-21-121 on the BMW MOTORRAD MONTAGEAUFTRAG ?

    I can't describe any differences from memory but since your motorcycle was built after July 2006 (Status 2) but before August 2007 (Status 3) your bike would be Construction Status 2.
