Finally have an inline 4 again...

Greetings,

Just picked up a 2008 K1200s from a family relative that passed away. The bike has about 7k miles and hasn't been ridden much at all in the last 4 years. He was getting ready to sell it, and as a result was draining fluids to refresh them first.

I am in the middle of assessing the bike, and will then get it roadworthy by doing all the services (myself) and determine an accurate $$ to give my aunt for it. It's my third bike in the garage, along with a 1999 Ducati 996s that I picked up about 10 years ago as well as a 1983 Honda V65 Magna that has been between myself and my dad over the past 20+ years. Last year I did a full resto on the Magna aside from engine teardown.

Excited to get into the K12s and to have an inline 4 to balance out my V2 & V4 motors.

Thanks!

Ps pics coming shortly...

Re: Finally have an inline 4 again...

Looks very nice apart from the fairing scratches but you can fix those without the need for a new fairing panel - it looks to me like the sort of scratches you get when you come to a halt, put you foot down only to find your foot is on loose gravel and down she gently goes.

It would also help a bit if you resize your photos before posting so that they fit on the screen.

Re: Finally have an inline 4 again...

I need to get me a 996 so that we can fully relate. I've already been down the v65 Magna and K12S roads.


Welcome.

I have a feeling that the K will be the most used......just a feeling.
