Best Gear to Jump Start K1200 GT
I had to jump start my bike yesterday and tried 3rd gear, and it seemed pretty abrupt. I know the gearing is pretty wide, so could people advise what is a good gear to best jump start a K1200 that needs to be jump started because of a low battery. Mind you, I am talking about a low battery - not a dead battery and I am assuming that the computer is alive with juice. I'm specifically talking about is 3 gear better than 4th, or 5th, etc. If its too low, the bike skids when the clutch is popped.
