Trying to Purchase 2005 K1200S

Any thing specific I should look at. One owner that has all of the recalls done. I am trying to purchase from a dealer that has it on consignment. Waiting to hear back on my offer. Only has 4,000 miles.

ABS servos, with the low miles I would wonder if the brake fluid has been flushed

Yes, the brake system should have been flushed every 1 to 2 years regardless of miles. These modulators can't be rebuilt and they're expensive to replace.

I just bought a 2005 S which I scoured for because I really wanted the yellow paint scheme which was only done in 2005. However I only would buy a low mileage bike. I also wanted the sport bags to use for touring. It was a long search but I recently found one with 7100 miles, bags and even a nav unit and new front Rubber. Paid $7800. I immediately took to dealer for oil change and found out recalls had to be done. Was done in one day although it cost me $200 for the chain guide which was not covered under warranty. But I absolutely love bike and can't wait to take it on a trip.

Interesting, chain guide or the chain jump guard?

If they replaced a chain guide would you mind posting the service invoice, I had heard there is a revised guide. If they charged you to install the chain jump guard you should ask for a refund, this a BMW covered item regardless of the mileage.

Maybe they replaced the chain tensioner? That might make more sense
