Well, my K1200 RS with 4800 miles fell over today, and in addition to cracking fairing, breaking mirror, and bending brake lever, it won't start!!!!!!!
I think the starter switch took the brunt of the impact as it fell against some railroad ties. The switch is stuck in the down position.
Can anyone give me some help as to how I can remedy this problem? Either to determine if this is in fact the problem and what I need to do to fix it (buy another switch, preferably used), or help in determining if it's something else.
It appears that the rest of the electrical system is working properly, brakes engage when I turn the kill switch to the ready position.
Oh, can anyone help me determine the total cost of this little mishap?
- small crack in right side fairing piece
- bent brake lever--lower
- smashed rearview mirror (housing is okay)
- broken starter switch? (unsure of this)
I'm hoping to do this myself--
Thanks again, I know you feel my pain.
If anyone has any of these parts used, I'd love to buy them--the color is a royal blue--it's a 2003.
