I need help to dissamble the 3 piece bars on my 2008 K1200GT.
Unfortunately, I used the end bar type tiedowns and have bent my right bar.
I have the torx bolt removed but don't see how to remove the bar. Thanks for your time and help, regards, Paul :confused:

1. Remove the back plate cover. Be careful not to break the small plastic tabs at the bottom.

2. Remove the "retaining bolts" (my name for them). Use a 13mm wrench.

3. Unscrew the large torx bolts from the T shape bolts. The included spring will push them apart.

Note: I am not sure how you got the torx bolts off without removing the cover first, so I don't know what will happen for you. Good luck!

Paul,

I realized this morning that you are probably past the stage I showed above. I assume that you are asking about how to remove the reservoirs, grips and switchgear - I can't help there, but hopefully someone else will dive in. It might help if you ask the admins to move your thread to the K12/1300GT forum.

I will leave my response and photos in case they are useful to others. I hope you get your answer soon.
