Need maintenance info in '00 K12RS

Greetings, I just traded my '03 Dakar for an '00 K12RS, but did not get any of the manuals with it. Would someone be so kind to list the recommended fluids and capacities for me?

If anyone would be willing to scan their manual and send it to me, it would be greatly appreciated.

My email is [email protected]

Thanks.

Here is something to tide you over until you get a manual for it.

Have you checked the manuals aren't in the hidden compartment on the underside of the seat base?

Thumbs up great site for K12RS info

You need to bookmark Scot Marburger's web site on the K1200RS:

http://www.gunsmoke.com/motorcycling/k1200rs/index.html

It has great advice on removing the tupperware, adding accessories, etc.
