Talking Bought a blue 13GT

I finally didi it!

Bought a Blue 2010 K 1300 GT from MAX BMW.
I wont be able to pick it up until September 3 since I am living tomorrow morning for vacations and the bike is in NH and I live in IL.

Safe riding

Congratulations! Of course we don't believe you until you show us pictures!! Have fun on your vacation.

When I bought my GT earlier this year I went on vacation the next week so just thought about riding the whole time until I got back.

Mmmm a list......

Airbox fix....search this site for more details. Yours should have been made correctly or redone already.


Foot lever gear shift may seem loose (movement on shaft), fix by replacing bushing with ball bearing inserts....not a problem but a personal touch

Recall NTSA 10V-488 through '10 models....replace Relay lever on rear strut

Chain Tooth-jump guard #11318526932 fro cam chain...YOU NEED THIS

Keep a watch on your final drive.....again search the forum for details.
Suggest changing oil and greasing splines when you do engine oil changes.

Just read up here on the forum and take the advice...or not. Its your bike.

Its the best and worst bike BMW ever made in my opinion.
There's a reason it only lasted 6 years.
