OK, on my 2006, Iíve had to replace the plastic fuel connect for a metal one; had to replace transmission w/ a rebuilt one; had a mystery failure of the CAN-BUS socket after the trans swap; AND have now had the servo-assist whizzy ABS module go out, as well as my brake lights at the same time.
Was going to get on Module Masters list to rebuild the ABS, but COVID-19 has that plan up in the air, and Iím just going to bypass the ABS for now.
I say that only so youíll know I can sympathize, before I ask: For all this bikeís flaws, I think itís closer to a sportbike than a tourer, and if youíre going to get a bike thatís ďmore fun,Ē what are you going for? I would think it would have to be either a liter bike, or naked hooligan based on one. The K1200S is unreliable and infuriating, but the one thing itís been for me is the most fun bike Iíve ever owned.
