Need some help from any K1200S owners in the group.
Well today was supposed to be my first local ( here in Sacramento, River City Beemer's) club Saturday meeting attendance, yep a newbie, and was very excited, to meet all the folks.
Well I got up, had me some coffee, got all suited up and went out to ride to meet all the folks. I started the bike, and it started just fine, purred like a kitten, then as I was pulling to my gate to exit where I live, it started running rough, and not even out of the gate, it died. Would not restart unless I had the throttle turned a little giving it gas, and it ran rough, honestly like missing on a cylinder.
Well I pushed it back to my garage and put up onto center stand, did through inspection. As a note, I live in Elk Grove, commute to San Ramon, 3 times a week min, and I had ridden back from there the night before, and had absolutely no problems, got home, let it cool and washed it for the next morning, that was it, it sat the night.
Well I could not flat out see anything wrong, and the oil was between the min and max, although, lower than mid way, but not very low, I let it sit came inside, waited to call A&S, then went outside to look again, had a tow coming, well I added a little more oil, and started, started just fine, purred like a kitten, I left on the stand and just observed, within maybe a minute, less than two, she started running all rough again and died.
I tried to start, ran rough, would not hold an idle, and I noticed, smoke, near the oil filter, maybe just below the filter, no lots, but enough,, but as it ran, there was a bit more, and I also noticed some oil soot at the end of the exhaust, oh hell, burning oil???? First thing shot through my head was cracked ring.
So it is now at A&S (my local shop), my service appointment for 52K checkup and full service was to be Friday the 14th, now it is there early and missed the chance to meet all the folks and possibly ride, but good thing it did not do this too me out there or worse on a ride.
So my question, any K1200 or K1300 owners ever experience anything like this??????
Sure does suck.....
