First post on this board I have K1200RS

Hey guys

I'm new to this board but not new to BMWs. My fist BMW was a 2000 K1200LT that I had for about three years. It had 56,000 on it when I bought it and I put 9,000 miles on it and never had any issues with it at all. I really loved the bike but it got too heavy for me at parking lot speeds (I'll be 70 years old in September). So I got rid of it and I just picked up a 2002 K1200RS with only 5205 miles on it. I bought it from a Dealer and I was able to check out all work that was done on it by them for the last 1/2 dozen years. I took it for a ride and fell in love all over again. The K1200LT would run the twisties about as fast as I wanted to go on something that heavy (860Lbs wet). I absolutely loved the bike! The K1200RS is 200Lbs lighter when wet and has a 3" or 4" shorter wheel base.
It has cruise control, ABS brakes, and heated grips and everything works just fine. I will be taking it to the "Tail of the Dragon" in October for a week of amazing twisties! I have been reading some posts concerning bikes this old and was wondering about the plastic quick disconnect problems. I assume that they are plastic and don't know how to tell without removing the Tupperware. I don't even know which side they are on (shifter or foot brake). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to learning a lot on this board. Oh I also have a seat and smugglers truck for a 2000 K1200LT I need to sell and don't know where to post them I hope someone will point me in the right direction.

Re: First post on this board I have K1200RS

Fuel connects are on the right side and should be visible from the fairing opening...if not already, replace the black plastic ones with stainless steel....and that's how you will be able to tell them apart....black vs silver.

You can see the OEM black plastic fuel disconnects in this picture at the bottom center of the tank.
Like Flyboy mentioned, they are visible through the fairing opening on the right side.







This picture is a little fuzzy but you can see the chromed replacement quick disconnects.

Welcome Randell. The K12RS is a fine machine! Sold mine to my son's friend with 158K on the clock. It now has over 165K and runs like new. I still smile when I think of it!

Re: First post on this board I have K1200RS

Also order up a set of Spiegler brake lines to replace your rubber lines. They are old now and subject to failure out of the blue. The tend to split the internal liner and it forms a check valve not letting the fluid back, thus locking the brake.
But, all the jobs are worth it because you now own a special and wonderful bike. A locomotive of motorcycles. The 2002 bike has a interesting ABS system, do some reading.
