List of model year changes?

Hi
Can anyone point me to a list of changes over the years? I have a 2009 K13GT, and I'm curious to know if there are any updates that I might benefit from putting in place.
cheers,
Doug

Re: List of model year changes?

K13GT was two years only and I don't believe there were any changes for the 2010.
There were a couple of recalls and service bulletins, best bet is to contact a dealer with your VIN
and they will let you know what has been done.

Thx. The dealer says the recalls are all up to date, but I'm also curious about any tweaks and refinements that might have not have risen to the level of requiring a recall.

Re: List of model year changes?

Doug, it was relatively refined and trouble free far as I know.

Then they stopped making it.

Re: List of model year changes?

Yes, though I did read through a humungous thread on the K1300S board relating to clutch tweaks and updates, some of them put in place by the factory.

I did not get a good understanding of when these changes happened, or how much of that stuff relates to the GT. I don't have any clutch problems, so I should probably just leave everything alone, but I am curious and would certainly be up for some tinkering over the winter if there was any preventative stuff I might want to do.

cheers,
Doug

Same with my KS...basically trouble free! I just ride it and enjoy.

Re: List of model year changes?

Surely a close look at the parts fiche can turn up differences. I'd pay particular attention to the clutch stack. Other items such as "improvements" to ECU software, would have to be addressed by the dealer.

There were the recalls including rear hub and something else that escapes my mind just now. TSB's likely include the brake master cylinder sponge and what else....? Use the search function to find "TSB".

The NHTSA recall listing website may help.
