Hi,

Going to buy a K1200RS this weekend. ( Finally got the payment from the van driver that wrecked my K1100RS. )

Looking for a bit of advice on what to look for in a RS. I know to check tyres, brakes, service history etc but is there any niggles specific to the RS I should be looking for?

Cheers

Depending on what year you are looking at:
timing cover leak
fork seals leak
ecu glitch at 5500 rpm/closed throttle

Also, look at the "Community Archives" forum, go to the "Technical" section and look at items people have complained about.

Good luck, it really is an awesome bike.

Service history would be helpful too!
