2006 k1200s Elecronic problems
I bought a used 2006 k1200s specifically because everyone seemed to love that year. Amazing bike for a while.
About a month ago the brake warning light came on. Checked the book says low fluid or pads. checked both theyre fine. Breaks work great. You can hear the servos whine and feel them operate. About the same time i got LAMPF.. i THINK the tiny center bulb is out. Havent had time to change it and cant really tell if its blown
In the last week or so: the clutch slave cylinder went out. .waiting on a SLOW canadian to ship mine. Last night i turned on the bike and headlight didnt come on. I flipped on the high beam and the high beam worked. After about 10 minutes of riding im guessing low beam started working and works fine now. About the same time (this weekend) the fuel guage crapped out to always empty.
I know the clutch slave and fuel sensors are known problems and i only mentioned clutch slave a: to bitch b: in case some of these things are related. Im starting to think theres a short or a computer problem. Brakes are FINE. All these sensor warnings started happening near the same time like a cascade failure. Im replacing that bulb asap and the clutch slave asap but im not paying bmw $$$$$ to tell me i need 5000 in bullshit when its some arcane electronic glitch? ANY ideas??? I just cant believe the bike pretty much started falling apart 6 months after it left the dealership. Frankly at the moment i wish id bought a kawa 1000
