FS: 1998 K1200RS being parted out
Unfortunately, my 98 K1200RS met its untimely demise a few months back when an oncoming driver turned left in front of me and I'm now parting out what's left of the bike.The bike had about 95K miles on it, and I'm located in Gainesville, FL. I don't expect to make a lot off these parts, but I had to buy the entire bike back from the insurance company to get my Staintune exhaust and Sargent seat, and I'm mostly just trying to clear stuff out now and hate to see good parts go to waste. Let me know what you're looking for and I'll see if it's available. Below is a list of a few key items that I feel may be useful to someone.
The entire drivetrain is available, and while I know the mileage is high, it would be good for someone looking to swap in some rebuilds and not have to wait on their parts being rebuilt.
The ABS system was working perfectly, so anything needed from it should be available.
The fuel tank and pump assembly all survived, and it's the newer version with the locking ring rather than bolts to correct the warped flange and leaks.
The rear wheel and tire is still good. I believe the tire is a Metzeler but I'll have to double check that.
The OEM hard side luggage is available and wasn't on the bike at the time of the accident. The previous owner had drilled some holes in the tops for bungee tie downs, and the left case has some damage near the cutout for the exhaust canister, but these can be had very reasonably depending on your location and will include the key for locking them.
As I said, if there is anything else you're looking for, feel free to ask!
