I had a 2012 K1300S HP. Great bike love it. But it was to cramped for me at 6’5” 270 lbs. The BMW is only quick shift up, you have to blip it going down.
I really loved the bike. It rode as smooth as glsss. You are going to love this machine
Shift assist is upshift only. No shift assist going down the box. The owners manual is available online. Shift assist is described on page 73.
My 2012 model was that same color. Great bikes!
Doesn't the owner of the bike know if his bike has shift-assist? Can you use the VIN to identify for sure if the bike does or doesn't have shift assist? The K13 was a great bike and a completely enjoyed riding my 2009 Lava Orange K13S.
If it has shift assist it will look like this.
The only issue I ever had was that if the bike sat out in the sun and the switchgear got real hot it wouldn't start. This was due to a faulty starter switch and my right side switchgear was replaced at no charge. I think there was a service bulletin for that. Picture of the problem.
Have a dealer run the VIN to check for anything that should already be taken care of.
Watch your speed.
It has a relatively long wheelbase so it s not so prone to wheelies - more like lots of back tire wheel spin!
ASC is there to prevent wheelies so, if that's your intended usage, you'll have to disable ASC each and every time you turn the ignition on...
Yes you will have to disable ABS/MTC unit. Otherwise it will start to lift and then reduce power to bring the front down.
I have ridden bikes for years and maybe it’s just me but I prefer two wheels on the road. Maybe brief bumps off road to help clear a obstacle.
Yes ASC is the MTC
I could just never get the balls to do it. Maybe that why I am 67 yrs old. :)
