Thread: What year K1300GT to look for ???

  1. #16
    I have a 2009 and love it. However, there are 3 issues that are commonly encountered on this bike that typically have to be addressed. There are several threads discussing these issues on the BMWLT. com forum. The first issue is that there is a lag in throttle response. This is apparently due to a lean fuel mixture and can be corrected by adding a AF-XIED. I got mine from Beemer Boneyard. Second issue is the starter sometimes will not turn the motor when it is hot. This is due to undersized wire from the battery to the starter. This is corrected by running another wire parallel to the existing wire or replacing it with a larger wire. I replaced mine with a six guage wire. The last issue is the bike sometimes will die at stops. I corrected this by adding a Super Plug.

    You added a Booster Plug AND an AF-XIED? Why no Power Commander?

    I'm kidding.

    To be honest I put the booster plug on first because I already had it off another bike. It solved the stalling problem but not the hesitation on acceleration. I put the AF-XIED on to adjust the fuel/air ratio. That solved the hesitation.

    Power Commander?

    My bike has the throttle lag but never any idle nor hard starting issues when hot. Both ESA shocks replaced by dealer when I bought it. All recalls done and new PR4 GT tires. I need to sell it as it is the 4th bike in rotation. Every time I ride it convinces me to be not aggressive in parting ways with it. Supremely capable machine and comfortable for the Mrs. when I install the top case for her.
