Just heard from the dealer

Dealer has just called to say that my new CGM K12GT SE will be ready for me to collect from Wednesday onwards next week. Due to work commitments I will not be able to collect until Friday 29th. It's going to be a long 8 days

I wonder if it will come with 7.0 installed?

I did notice at the dealers over the weekend that new GTs being delivered have a different arrangement for the gauges. On the bikes being delivered now the gauges have a flat cover over the top as per the R1200 whereas the bike I test rode had "recessed" gauges if that makes any sense (by gauges I mean speedo, rev counter etc)

Is anyone else seeing this new arrangement on newly delivered bikes.

Also had a look at the final drive and could see no sign of an additional drain plug to aid oil changes.

Regards
Steve

You mean this:


versus this:



It only means that your dash isn't fully assembled yet....


Found this out last week with help of Greg.

OK, I understand now, thanks for the clarification. I was a bit disappointed with the "new look" but not any more
