Product description

Fits these bikes


BMW went in a new direction with the development of its K 1200 S. When it was first presented in 2004, it impressed not only with its 167 h.p. engine but also with its revolutionary technical chassis innovations, such as the unique Duolever front suspension and (as an optional extra) the electronically adjustable chassis “ESA”. The first BMW motorbike with a transversely mounted 4-cylinder in-line engine was a radical departure from the previous traditions of the 80-year-old brand. Nowadays, the K 1200 series has been expanded to 4 different models that meet all the needs of both touring and sports bikers at an impressively high level. When a K 1200 is cared for properly, it can offer years of faithful service. And if, however, gremlins should get up to their tricks: you will find plenty of practical help in this book.

This handbook includes the following chapters:
– 50,000 km endurance test and exhaust test from “Motorrad”, Europe’s most popular bike magazine
– tools: the right tools for use in the hobby or professional workshop and special mechanics’ tips for beginners and advanced tinkerers
