The 2002+ RS bikes also have electronic cruise. At least some of them do, I thought they all did. My friends does.Yoda said:My 2000 K12RS came with a 180/55 – 17 and a 5.5” wheel. The owner’s also manual confirms the tire requirement in 180/55-17. To the best of my knowledge the signals are not removable. I have seen no mention of it in the manual and have seen no clasps.
Another difference on the GT is the addition of cruise control which is handy for avoiding tickets while freeway droning.
Yes my signal lights look like that. And now that you mention it I think it's possible the dealer may have said something about an optional wide rear tire when I bought it. I'll take a look at my service manual on how to pop off the pods. I'm pretty sure there's no mention of it in the owners' manual.Trout said:The 2002+ RS bikes also have electronic cruise.

My 2001 manual lists the 5.5 and 180 rear as "optional".
Does your fairing look like the one in this picture? If so, the black front signal pods pop off. They must be removed to get to to some of the side panel bolts. If your fairing is not like this one, then your bike is not a 2000.
Never laid down a street bike in my life. Of course I've fallen off dirt bikes about a gazillion times, though.Y2K12RS said:Wow, that means you have NEVER dropped yours? Lucky! Mine have popped off enough through drops or all the work I have done over the years that I had to replace the piece of the pod that contains the baskets for attachment. I now have it down to be able to remove the body panel without removing the pod, as that upper screw is on the inside by the oil cooler. The owners manual does not mention or describe them coming off, just tells you how to replace the bulb on pages 2-44 & 45. I also agree that Black is a GREAT color. So much so that seeing the adv. in the latest Cycle World actually has me considering the new S1000RR............
