    2005 k1200 gt engine failure

    bike with 67k on the odometer, replaced fuel pump and fuel filter, air filter 2 months ago, now this!
    I was riding at 70/80 when I smell of rubber burning or shrediing just before engine shakes right to left and dies for good.
    Any theory or indication to help me in the search and repair is much appreciated.
    Thank you,
    DOM

    DOM,


    Check oil to see if it is milky or frothy.

    Check coolant for same.

    Do compression check.

    Report back, then we can do some troubleshooting.





    LONG MAY YOUR BRICK FLY!

    Could be one, or more, of the rubber inlet tube(s) disintegrated and pieces got sucked in the engine......

    Are all the external plastic bits present and accounted for?
    Does the engine crank? Can it be manually cranked over?
    Pull the plugs and have a look inside with a scope.

    Just first thoughts. Let us know what you find please.
