New 04 K1200GT Owner Question
Hi guys. This is a great spot for specific info and I want to join with a few questions about my new bike. It's my second BMW K bike, but with a 10 year gap between them.
I just bought a used 2004 K1200GT with about 3,000 mile on her. I'm pretty happy with everything except a scratch/scuff that I missed from it being dropped once. Everything else looks like its spanking new. I have two issues that are sound and feel related that I want to confirm are correct.
1. The overall sound is what I remember, but after a decent ride and I stop with the engine still running, I hear all kinds of whistles, hums and such. These are not the typical engine noise and do not really sound like cooling fans and such. Does that make any sence?
2. I also feel an occasional clunk in the front end. Nothing harsh, but I can still feel it every no and again. I did have one fast lot entrance over a small curb that clunked pretty hard and felt strange as well. My mind is playing tricks on me and I keep getting nervous that something is going to fall off and/or send me sailing over the front. I have felt and pulled on the front end parts and can not find any loose parts (like the wheel falling off!).
My closest BMW shop is a 2 hour ride. I live near Cincinnati OH so I can go to Louisvill KY or north with 2 dealer options in Columbus OH. I'm not ready for the 6,000 mile service, but perhaps I need to take it in for a good check.
Anyone have any thoughts.
