Other than checking with VIN for factory options when delivered, you have another fairly easy check for K1200RS (any years):
- between airbox and trottle-bodies, the 100 HP restricted version have different rubber intake stubs. The full 130HP have the wider / larger intake stubs - the 100HP have restricted diameter tubes (See attached photo...)
This is much easier to check with left fairing removed - almost impossible to see these intake tubes otherwise.
In additon to restricted intake tubes, the 100HP version has a Yellow Relay in electrical junction box under fuel-tank. Internally this Relay is basically just a jumper wire to activate a different fuel map in Motronic ECU. Of course this is NOT easy to check quickly compare to the 4 rubber intake stubs.
So, I think if you reverse the intake rubbers to the USA ones, and pull the Yellow jumper relay you may see some serious results! good luck. When you change out the intake rubbers be sure the clamps do not interfere with the fuel rack rotation. Please come back to us with your thoughts and actions/results.

Thank you very much for your support.
Based in Ethiopia, getting parts is quite hard, but I'll try and let you know.
I also got a BMW F650GS Dakar. The former owner couldn't start it and sold it to me. Tried to start it and noticed at the exhaust, there's a suction. I think the exhaust valve is stuck open or I don't know if these models have a decompression system which I don't know how it could operate, but the exhaust is pulling and pushing.
