K1200s Stalls

If your K1200S stalls from time to time, then is hard to start, you probably have 1 or more coil packs that need replaced. Had this problem around the 40 -45,000 mile mark. Had 2 coil packs replaced, and have had no issues for the last 5,000 miles.

Just posted a new thread about it.. my bike got the same issue i guess.
Did you have yours changed in the dealer/workshop, or you did it yourself?.. the coils that were replaced are they original BMW or an Aftermarket? (such as BERU-german made)
I'm looking for a set of coils in a decent price on the net. if you have any good experience with a site or a shop that i can contact and work out with a shipment it'll be great !!
I'm living overseas (middle-east..) so any vehicle parts that get imported and worth over 50$ will be charged with almost over 50% extra customs + VAT charges to feed the government parasites
I also have a company in NJ that can get it for me & send it to me overseas

thank you all for trying to help..

Some early K12S air boxes are warped & recalled or up graded as well as firmware for the bike. If you blow a coil - YOU'LL KNOW it - greater smell of gas & lack of power.
Do you have stalling in city / traffic or in hot temps? air box & firmware up grade will help
