Hello all,
Just sent our K1200RS down the road and replaced it with a 2004 K1200GT. The RS had an RhineWest chip installed by the PO, and ran beautifully with 87k on the clock when she left.
The GT (24k on the odo) has the horrible idle problem when cold, but it does have the 166 MCU in it. Would anyone have a bin dump of a 296 EEPROM I could try to see if it cleans the idle up when she's cold?

Going to try that first before going with a Z tech chip - as it appears they are the only company making chips for these bikes still?
The bike has a Two Brothers exhaust on it, which is not my taste in either the looks or sound department. I'm understanding there might still be a little idle issue when cold due to the exhaust backpressure difference, but if it works, it will save me $170.
I almost swapped the exhaust off the RS, but it sold quicker than I thought it would (like in a couple of hours). I really miss the quiet exhaust and that beautiful stainless finish of the factory exhaust.

Thanks
-Tom

I bought a used Remus for my 04 GT and have had no idleing problems, Cold Starts takes about 30 seconds before all problems go away Love the sound of the Remus .
