It has been a long time since I have been on this site. But, I have always liked it. I have had a dream, since 2005, to own a K1200R. I had originally acquired a K1200LT and then an R1200RT, which I have owned since '08 and have put roughly 80,000 miles on it. I figured it was time to stop riding it so much or I would have an increase in my maintenance cost. So, I set my sights on buying another bike. And what did I choose, you may ask? Well that is obvious, right?
Yes, I found an obscene deal on an '07 K1200R Sport. I could actually afford it !!! Got it. It is in great shape with 37K on it. Runs well, recently had the 36K service done at BMW of Denver. I actually rode that bike for the first time yesterday. Yes, I am in love !!!
Now to my issue. The only thing I found wrong with it, was that the headlamp warning was on. So, after I bought it, I found out that the owner previous to the owner before me did a botched up job of putting an HID kit on the bike. The lowbeam bulb had blown. When I got in there, I found a rats nest of wires and then began to dismantle the rats nest. I had no choice but to cut wires and remove the existing bulb. So, I figured, once the H7 gets installed again, the code would go out NOT. !!!!!! So, we removed the high beam bulb, etc. Then, while attempting to install another H7 bulb for the high beam, the bulb suspension spring came out from behind the screw that holds it. So, now I have no high beam (no big deal as long as I am not riding at night). I attempted to loosen that philips head screw that holds it in place. Because there is so little clearance, it is virtually impossible to put that spring back in (at least it didn't break as it did on my RT). So, now, I must dismantle the fairing to get to where I can actually work on this thing. But, I need instructions on how to do that.
Can someone please provide me with or direct me to a place where I can find those instructions? My only option is to bring it to someone and have it done.
Since I do not know how to dismantle the fairing, I didn't want to open a larger can of worms. So, I have done the following:
1) Taped all the wires so nothing would short
2) closed up the high beam door so that there were no wires exposed.
3) Nothing else yet.
I know plenty about working on my '05 RT, but this is new to me.
Thank you for your help. If you would like to contact me directly, I can always be reached at [email protected]
