K1200R starting issues
I apologize for making this my first post. I suppose it took mechanical trouble to get me to register:
Yesterday, leaving for work, my bike didn't immediately start up when I pushed the starter button. It fired up on the second try, after double checking the kickstand and pulling in the clutch lever, I chalked it up to operator error, and rode to work. I went out to lunch and the bike had similar issues. I decided that I'd try to get the bike into my local dealer today but this morning the bike completely refused to start. So I removed my gear, got ready to drive the car to work, and for the heck of it, tried to start the bike again. It still didn't want to start... until I decided to put the transmission in neutral. Then it started right up. Starting the bike in first gear with the clutch in and kickstand up has never been an issue for me. Anyone hear about anything similar happening to their K bikes? I decided to leave the bike home this morning. I'll try to get it to my dealer tomorrow. It's still under warranty with only 14,000 miles, but I figured I'd post up the trouble anyway.
Thanks in advance,
