Have an opportunity, upgrade (not sure if that's the right word yet) to 2010 K1300R or stay with my 2006 K1200R? similar km's. Any big advantages or disadvantages? Is it worth the extra money?
Thanks.

As I've addressed or looked into some issues with my 2006 K1200R, each time I've read somewhere that it was addressed with the K13R. So my impression is, yes, it is a big upgrade. The issues were (1) shift lever free play (I replaced the plastic bushing with a roller bearing kit) (2) Throttle pull (I believe the K13s went to a push/pull double cable) (3) flat spot at 3500 rpm and (4) Transmission 2nd & 3rd gear jump-outs. Also I believe the 13 is a little bit shorter.

Thanks for the info Stone. I didn't have any of the issues you mentioned, just a clutch noise and rumble and a stuck throttle cable when it got above 27C. It looks like the K1300R will be mine soon, barring any major problems.
Cheers!

My K12r is at 59Kkm. A K13r is prob a $13K cost here in Oz.

That's prob around twice the going price of a K12r.

If I was to do it, I'd get one with lower kms.
