    What to look for when buying an older RT (2012 and older)

    Folks...
    I'm in the market for a 2008-2012 R1200RT.
    Any opinions on what should be looking/checking for when considering a purchase?

    Any year in particular stand out???
    Problem areas?

    I'd appreciate any comments

    There are a number of them for sale here in the marketplace. I would trust a used bike from a MOA member more than from someplace like Craigslist! The Hexheads are simpler to maintain than the cam heads but it is only a minor difference. I would buy the newest model you can afford, and ask to see the maintenance history. In general, they are good bikes.

    The camheads rev nicely.
