A couple additional comments on th 04 KGT and KRS. The bike has good adjustability on the ergos: 2 seat positions, 2 footpeg positions and several bar positions. Anyone 5'10" or taller seems to be fine, but there are always exceptions. Excellent wind management without overdoing it or making you look through plastic. Super smooth engine that will cruise at any speed you care to (dare to) go. Heavy but not offensive. Tires make a big difference to feel. Continental Road Attack gives the front end nice responsive turn in. Michelin Pilot Road 2 makes the bike feel a little dead, but great on the interstate and great in the rain. I did a wet track day on the Road Attacks and had front-end understeer (push), which I have never experienced on a sport bike. I assume this is characteristic of long wheelbase and weight, but I have heard stories if guys losing the front-end in very sprited riding so remember that the brick era K12 is not a GSX-R. Great 2-up. M/C of choice for a 2-up day trip. Transcontinental comfort and capacity solo. Maintenance can be expensive: $300 for an annual brake flush. The other stuff you can do at home. There was a fed recall on the fuel tank quick connectors, and several people recommend swapping the plastic connectors for the metal ones. Some people report oil seal leaks between the engine and the gearbox. When this happens the clutch gets wet and starts to slip. After a few hundred miles, you wont be able to go up a steep hill. An extended warranty that covers this repair might be a smart buy. For $7-$9k, I can't think of a better way to spend a bike budget. These bikes still feel brand new at 20k miles. Add Wilbers shocks, and maybe some lighting and you have a fantastic sport tourer. I know of several guys who have gone to the new generation K1200GT or S, but refused to part with the brick, because the bike is too good to give away for the price they fetch. Final thought. Don't dink with any aftermarket GPS mounting solutions. Go to the dealer and ask for the factory mount. It is $35. It is a beautifully designed water jet cut peice of stainless that fits precisely on top of the triple tree and possitions your Zumo (or whatever) perfectly. Easy switched power is available at the parking light in the headlight shell. Hope you go ahead with the purchase!
