Well, the wife and I got our first "real" trip on the 2008 K1200GT this past weekend. A trip to Savannah GA and back.
The bike had about 700 miles when we left. The bike performed well, other than a few "new pilot" errors on some of the gadgets, but fortunately I had the owner's manual along.
Who'd-a-thunk the check mark next to "oil" means the oil checks OK, not "check the oil"?
I guess that's kind of like "brake failure" meaning "everything checked OK"...
Anyhow, I did have one real problem, one well documented on here. After running down a fairly rough section of road, I started having "brake warning" lights, first intermittently, then constant.
Mechanically, I checked the brakes during the trip, and everything seemed to be fine. I assume it is the wear indicator wires.
Just wondering what the best approach is to this. Take it to the dealer as a warranty issue? Attempt to resolve myself (seen some suggestions to short the wires)? Ignore it?
I'm kind of annoyed at ignoring something like that on a new bike, particularly if the dash warning light is used to indicate other brake problems as well.
