The hard seat. That's being taken care of shortly though.

Hi Trevor
If you look the seat from the same point of view of the designer..
Hard seat becomes after the time in a soft seat adapted to you nice lower back (I guess! ) . Soft seat becomes a very soft and uncomfortable seat after time.
IMO is the thought of european designers, similar thing with the car seats, different with american or japanese criteria.

another point is if you have a soft seat you can't move the ass to have a sport ride in corners , remember you need to take corners like a racer because you have a K13R!

More serious... in my experience, after 2 years - 40.000 Km , the OEM seat is more soft and comfortable

I did 325kms yesterday and I had pain in my lower back and bum cheeks. I have a guy doing a custom seat for me this week as soon as the leather I ordered comes in. Should be good to go for the trip to Arizona later this month.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

On the K1300S, for me it is the ergonomics. The handlebar position just does not work for me. It makes my hands very number after about an hour and a half. For others, I am sure it is no problem.

I'd think if it makes your hands numb, it would be something else. Try these first:
Gloves too tight?
Bend at the elbows a little to relieve pressure in the pec area. Common if you're
developed in the upper body.
Or, you're too tense, loosen up the grip.

All good suggestions, and I thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience. However, I have been riding enough years to know the source of the problem. Definitely not a glove issue - I have used the same pair of gloves for many years. Not an upper body issue, or tensing up. It is a matter of pressure on a nerve in my hand due to the positioning of the hand on the grip. (I had a similar issue on my bicycle until I changed the bar position). While I may be able to change my grip for a few minutes and get some temporary relief (e.g., hold the end of the bar rather than the grip itself), the only long term solution is to change the interaction of my hand and the grip. A change of elbow position is too small based on my current reach for the handlebars.

I am ok with changing the bars. I was used to a much more upright position on myh other bike (R65) and expected that I might have to make some ergonomic changes to my new ride.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

A little lighter with lower center of gravity for low speeds would be nice. Once at speed, the weight disappears. And with my new BT30 GT tires, my 2003 K1200GT thinks it's a teenager.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I would quiet down the engine. A lot. My K13S clicks and whistles and squeals like it is about to come apart. Honda was making quieter mc engines in the '80s. Would also sacrifice some horsepower if necessary to get rid of the dreadful braaaap open airbox sound on acceleration. What I really want is an electric powered version that gets the same range and recharges as fast as a fuel refill. My favorite thing in the world is to kill the motor and coast, hear only the wind.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I love quiet engines. I have ridden the Zero and love it. 80 mile range freeway and 120 mile city. It's similar in power to a torquey 700. I hope BMW follows with something more than a scooter.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I'm a newcomer to the world of BMW after trading in a couple of other bikes recently for a 2012 K13S. After a couple of months I'm entirely smitten, particularly with the urge to go fast. Magma red doesn't help, as I've already been bitten twice by japanese law enforcement, once more and I'm through for a while. Maybe I'd change the color to something more neutral. Other than that, the seat pretty much sucks but a new one, hopefully better, is in the mail. For those who complain about clunky transmission all I can say is Quick Shift Assist. Brilliant. I also have an FJR in the garage for longer excursions and cruise control makes a world of difference.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I'm hoping that the '15 GSA will be the perfect bike for me. It seems BMW has been listening
to us. I missed the cruise control of the K1200RS the most. The GSA has it. The '12 GSA was
a little too tall, they're offering a lowered version. The pro shifter was too cool to pass up when
ordering the bike. The fact that you can down shift as well... it's going to take some restraint not
to ride this bike hard in the twisties.
The changes I anticipate making will be bar risers to relieve tension on by shoulders, fender
extension on the front and Mudsling on the rear.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

A factory option of electronic cruise control plus led/xenon headlight would be the cherry on top of this otherwise perfect package

Replacing the front wheel bearings and the ball joints have made a marginal difference. Front shocker is, well, shocking, and needs to be replaced asap.

ps: I'd still like an extra cylinder either side

Tempting ... and tempt they do - I've gotten a K13S a few times as loaners. But the R suits my "here" and "now" commuting bike life. God, its just sooo good getting through heavy traffic

No good about the suspension, but the yanks have been warning us that around 50,000 miles the suspension gets very 2nd hand.
Hope you get it sorted. No going to the dark side.... Or is BMW the dark side....anyway...

Re: What would you change on your bike?

Yeah, I'll probably stick with BMW.

The KTM 1290 Super Adventurer is tempting but starting at $27K and a chain sort of puts me off. Hate to think what a sprocket change would cost ...

Or Honda's new Africa Twin looks tasty. Be interested to see the Australian starting price on that one. Chain too, so ...

I do like a good shaft ....

... Besides, seeing as I've lately invested heavily in the K13R, I'll be trying to get a bit of value for my moola. Also, I want to see this bike tick over the ton

Re: What would you change on your bike?

Rather than respond with a wishlist of things I wish BMW would do in the future, especially since it seems they have abandoned the KS all together, here is my response focusing on what I have changed, as farkelization is within the control of the rider and not dependent on BMW. So far, I am about three quarters of the way through the farkelization process on my K1300S Motorsport. I promised the wife that it would be different than my harley in that I would try to limit accessories to those that add utility or functionality rather than be simply decorative.

Of all the mods I have made so far, my favorites are the Schwabenmax Quick Throttle and Solid Solutions Accelerator Module. These really make the bike fun to ride and snappy with no throttle lag or delay. The quick throttle is a ton of fun because you can tap full throttle with one turn of the wrist, and the Accelerator module, aside from keeping things smooth also had the surprise affect of boosting my MPGs by 2-3 on average.

I also really enjoy the rear lighting I have installed (combination of light buddies with stop alert from Pirates Lair; Skene Designs P3 Lights with Turn Signal Feature; dual LED plate frame from Signal Dynamics. I have noticed a significant difference in how the cars behind me react, both when cruising in traffic as well as when I hit the brakes. They give me a larger cushion generally, and tend to react faster to brake when I brake. This makes me feel safer and more comfortable generally.

Of course, a PDM60 is installed to power everything. So far so good, including the powered SW-MOTECH daypack tank bag. I love having the tank bag, but the power feature does not work yet. They sent me a new part, so I will have to swap it out to see if that fixes my issue. If it does, then I will be a happy camper because I use my cell to listen to music and as a GPS. However, running the GPS eats the battery, so in order to do that effectively, I will have to have it connected to power. The phone is mounted on a tech mount with grip- works great- very solid.

I ordered a set of Clearwater Darla lights. which should arrive Monday. I will install those and the HID headlight I purchased from Pirate at the same time. Between these and the rear end lighting - I feel I have my lighting and visibility (to other drivers) needs adequately covered.

I have also installed the full complement of RG Racing sliders (wish I had done this before the bike fell over and scratched the side plastic, but live and learn).

For touring, I ordered a Kriega US-30 which should arrive next week and have installed the OEM Luggage grid. This will have to hold me over until I can afford to order the OEM panniers which I will do in a few months. I will still use the kreiga with the OEM bags though, I will just have more room.

Lastly, I plan to add some sort of radar detector, and/or laser jammer. Currently, my plan is Escort Max 2, and the Anti-laser priority jammer. These are expensive, so they are at the bottom of the list for now. Other than that, and maybe, one day, a new seat- I plan to spend the rest of my time riding it, and the only things I hope to spend money on besides regular service are tires.

(Although I have made one decorative only purchase - Bestem CF Clutch guard, and plan to make one more- BMW tinted screen... but then I am finished... I swear..... )

Re: What would you change on your bike?

Just got the S1000XR... So, waiting to see what the aftermarket offers in regard to bar risers (isolated), windscreens (more coverage) and seats (different angles, better for my pillion)... Aside from those, nothing... The thing is a an absolute monster.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I still have my K1300r but am now resolved to selling it. I've had it 2 years and done nearly 4000 miles. I've test ridden a few KTMs and they are better bikes in terms of power delivery and excitement but the BMW holds its own when it comes to finish and quality. I just like the KTM engine better and tgeir riding positions are more comfy. I get so sore when I ride the K13. It's a hard ride plus the throttle is heavy. Not sure what to do but selling the bike is the best solution for me.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

I've had my K12S since June. As of now the only thing I'd change is my rattling clutch basket.

WHAT WOULD I CHANGE ON MY BIKE?

OIL, Filter, Air Filter. And switch to a lithium battery.

Re: What would you change on your bike?

Biggest problem here is it is top heavy with heavy front end steering. Which some of that could be solved by less weight.
But as I get older, I really like less weight and ride my R9t when possible.
