    Unhappy 2017 r1200r rough engine

    I previously had a 2015 r1200r which I had purchased after owning a K75 for 19 years. I was very impressed with how smooth the R1200R ran which was one of the main factors in my decision to let my trusty K75 go.

    About a year into ownership a suicidal deer ended it's life and the life of the R1200R.

    Liking the 2015 R1200R so much I purchase a new 2017 R1200R. Not as smooth and around 4,000 RPM irregardless of which gear, the engine acts as if the timing is off, very rough and increased vibration.

    Before I take it to the dealer I though I would run this by you guys (and girls) for real world experiences and knowledge.

    MWAG is that it is an ignition issue. Might just be the connection or it might be a stick coil. Change the plugs and reseat the coil and connector to see if that helps.

    How many miles on it?
    My mechanic says 15000 miles and it time for new plugs, if still under warranty coils should be covered,
