    If Neil_B gets stuck, can he push start his bike to start?

If I can find a dealer that has the upgrade kit then maybe I can have it sent a dealer close to my travel path, but yikes - I don't like the idea of getting stuck before it can be fixed. Can I also assume that the service bulletin wasn't being done under a recall (i.e., parts and labor charges will all be on me IF I can get it done)?
    Hi, it was not a recall, just a service bulletin. The costs will be on you. We've had the hot start issue a few times (K1200S / K1300S since 2007) but they always cranked after a few tries. We have a 2016 now so the "fix" is supposed to already be in this one but it acted weird once on a startup last year. We got a new battery and it hasn't happened since. I can't guarantee that a battery will fix yours but if your battery is a few years old it wouldn't hurt to try.
