    Very sorry - that is going to be expensive.

    New body work? Yes, you can count on it. The new RT will be the most dramatic change to the line since the introduction of the 1200's.

    Go to a local BMW auto dealership. That is where I purchased touch up for my K12GT. The auto dealers sell it in the two pack kit just like the motorcycle dealers use to.

    Swap out the cable from the battery to the starter with a heavier one, but I'd check your connections first. It may be a loose connection to the starter or a loose earth connection.
