Picked up a 2007 k1200r sport with 17k miles on it last summer
Have since replaced the heated grips, the fuel sensor, oil /filter, air filter, battery, coolant and spark-plugs.
Wants: muffler, digital speedo, aftermarket seat. Power increase... Restrictor removable?
Needs: tires next season for sure
Last night I was rolling down the highway and clicked the high beams in order to see the dark road... And the engine and all the electrical stopped for 1/2 a second... I released the high beam button and everything started back up... Crash avoided. The brake failure light had come on briefly but I continued on as I was miles from home and assistance.
I noticed that even at highway speed when I depressed the clutch the headlights would dim as the rpms lowered. As I was almost home I slowed for a stop sign with the clutch in and it stalled but restarted. I kept the rpms high for the remainder of the ride home..
My first thought is alternator.. The last thing I need is a repair cost...
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Also any local Manitoban k riders around?
