Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

I'm not usually an accessory pipe kind of guy; but what make is that? Looks very slim, and I like the double tips.

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

Thanks, the exhaust is from a company call xtreme stainless in the UK.
It has a lovely 'note' when the throttle is really opened...

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

Some updated pictures of the latest version of my mighty K, I think it's just perfect for me now
I used to have the engine cowl/belly-pan, then added the Schnitzer headlight faring. Then I decided that the naked was not so naked anymore so reverted back to a more original look with some minor changes.
I have the R&G racing aero crash protectors, Upside down turned Helibars, Bernardo's exhaust mod, front surface mount signals, Acerbis hand guards, instrument relocator, carbon flyshield and a sports seat.
I also opened up the second air intake and removed the throttle actuator.

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

I agree lol! I had this one on the radar for 18months until the previous owner would part with it.
It has just under 10,000km's on it and it's the perfect fit for me.
With the backrest I had one on the K1200r that I owned and worked pretty well, as well as somewhere to put my helmet when at the shops.
I wanted something that would resemble a factory type look, so used the rear luggage rack as a template and made a style of insert, via a good engineering mate in Australia.
He then copied the bottom plate that was made for the backrest part. The only thing that would make it fit even better would to be to machine out the bottom of the plate to match the ridges in the luggage rack.

Amen to that Richard! My riding friends have changed bikes 3 and 4 times since I purchased my K1300R in 2010. 65,000 km and a firm sales offer with cash in hand and couldn't let her go.

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

Same thing with me. Friends of mine have traded a Z1000 for a Multistrada, MT09 for a MT10, R1 for a S1000rr and keep asking me when I'm changing mine and I keep saying I got it right the first time and there's not another bike I could trade up to.

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

Bebe will be 10yrs old next month. 62Kmiles so far(didn't get on many rides last year with Prudence either).

Bebe still puts an ear to ear grin on me each time I roll her off the kickstand. And every time Prudence's forks compress and lose all compliance with the road surface simply by squeezing the front brake lever I take solace I didn't trade Bebe for the R1200R WC.

Re: Let's see YOUR K1300R!

I'm not against buying a new bike...but I honestly can't find anything that can check off all the boxes that my 2012 K1300R does....I even ride it around town all day for work and it's so civilized and yet...well you know....
I bought it new coming up 4 years ago this coming January, 64,000 Kms later and not a complaint. My only complaint would be that bmw stopped making the bike.
