    2005 k1200s

    Although I am not new to motorcycles this is my first K1200S. Can anyone give me some insight on issues with this bike ? It has 21K miles on it

    Here's an issue that every single K1200S suffers - Exhaustus Monumentus or ELMS (Extraordinarily Large Muffler Syndrome).

    There's an easy fix which is relatively economical, much more attractive, doesn't increase sound output (much), and saves 8 pounds of dead weight......

    Looks like this.......
