K1200GT Upgrade Ideas

I just purchased a 2004 K1200GT. Anyone have any suggestions for upgrades? So far I am considering a back rest, comfort seat, PIAA 1100x lights, and maybe a taller windshield.

Various upgrades

Well, on my K1200RS which I recently purchased. I got some chrome instrument rings to brighten up the dash. add a thermometer .. repadded the seat. Add loud horns..and extra tail lights for more visibility. I adjust the handlebars to the lowest postion after trying it for a while..everything fits now...
So far, those are the only mods i made and am very happy with it

If you spend a penny on anything before you upgrade the shocks, you should be beaten.

So Far.......

I have added the piaa 1100's and a top case from Givi E46. Upgrades the tires to Z6 when it was time and added a Parabellum 25 Screen.

Break !! LEd tail light was also added.

Good Luck

You obviously feel strongly about shocks, but even on a brand new bike?

On another topic has anyone sucessfully mounted the PIAA 1100x AND the fiam horns? I have not studied it critically but it appears that they both are intended to go on the same location.

I thought we were talking about a two year old bike.

Anything that can be rebuilt is better than the showas.

Pirate's Custom Touring Footpegs are very nice and a Avant Guard radar detector mount is a must have.
