Jim, you are correct.
The K unit is designed for bikes weighing 200 pounds more, with 160+ HP. Yeah, stronger.
Hey Jim- teach school, do/did ya?
I thought you get leaky head on a first date :)

Don't think I can say "a wet head" when people ask me what I'm riding....
Hey if I got any h--- ...
We shall see
Id rather not dump my 660 for a nav iv (v?) to enjoy free wheeling. OTOH maybe I could borrow some BMW software...
Made sense the first time around. Still makes sense now.
Ok, that is a reasonable line of logic. Where I start to wonder is when I read in the press materials words to the effect of "optimized light weight" drive shaft. In other words, how sure are we that this is really the same unit as on the big K16? (if that is what you were saying.)
Look up the part numbers.
I may have missed comments on the new tires, being such a lengthy post. The thread pattern and a closer look a the photos I seem to read Anakee in some and Metzeler in others 120/70 R19 and 170/60 R17 for the new Water Box versus 110/80 R19 and 150/70 of the oil heads.
So that means we get to use the newer tires on our current bikes? any information on this new tires?
Yes, I missed it!
So, got access to that, do ya?
given how i intend to use the bike, Continental Road Attack 2s will be adorning mine.
Given the silliness we experienced last time, has anyone heard about the Heidenau K60 availability for this bike? Will it be in time for the next gen of the WetHead when they change the tire size again?
I just noticed the angles in the new bike's exhaust header. I wonder if this is as efficient as the header on the current 1200s? Or did the engineers have to compromise a bit of flow at the outflow side to get improved efficiencies on the intake side?
I haven't read this entire thread, so my apologies if this is a repeat.
I haven't been on the ball lately, but I promise that the GSpot FAQ will use Wethead without exception.
If you want: Call a vote and watch me not change my mind.
If memory serves me, I believe I read on the spec sheets and used my math skillz to determine the wheels on the New R1200GS for both front and rear are a half-inch wider than the current model.
Conceivably you could squeeze the new tire sizes on our rims, but not likely. I know a 5.5" rear and a 190 do not work, but a 6.0" rear and a 190 will...
Sorry, broken link and this was buried, thought I'd bring it current for those that haven't seen it.
