Considering a 2007 K1200GT

I have been looking for either a K1200 GT or K1200 LT for a couple of months. I have found a 2007 in both models with low miles. I do ride two up often and like the sporty feel of the GT. Are there any issues or common problems with these bikes that I should look out for. Any insight in greatly appreciated. I currently ride a Kawasaki Nomad 1600 and the bike is great for two up it just doesn't provide that fun factor on the twisties.

For information on the LT our sister site is an incredible resource. Read the FAQ section and it'll get you started.

Gt Klt

I had a KLT and really miss it. If you are going to ride two up most of the time then get the KLT. When I had mine I tore up the mountains here in North Carolina. That bike is absolutely amazing and very much at home in the mountains/twisties. Once you get her moving you never even notice it's weight. Your passenger will really appreciate the rear seat, trust me. If your passenger is not comfortable, you are in for a long day.....week.....year, however long it takes her to make you buy another bike she's happy with. Besides, i have it from a good source the '07 KGT's had brake issues, the kind that cost allot of money if it's not under warranty. The '08 and up are good for the KGT. You'll love the electric/pneumatic center stand of the KLT. Good Luck
P.S. Purchase good suspension for the KLT, it's worth every penny.
