    Did you happen to remove the gas tank?

    They look like the big rubber washers that go on the gas tank bolts. (Maybe I'm thinking on the K12RS/GTs)

    edit; sorry I just looked up on the fiche, my RT tank attaches the same as the GS.

    Bird,

    Nice looking bike. Would you have a better picture of that rear rack. I think my wife
    would like that on her '03 GT.

    It looks a little larger than the BMW she has on hers now. The...

    Definitely an improvement over the "166" so much that I probably will never mess with it again.

    Starts a little "crisper" and throttle response is a bit better.

    No, outstanding buys out there on K12RS/GTs. We picked up my wife's '03 GT a couple months ago w/15K miles for $6,650 and it was in excellent condition w/many accessories. Bought the '04 RS in 2011...

    As NSStephen has so eloquently stated, a K and an R are two different bikes (i.e. apples and oranges).

    I own/ride a 2004 K12RS, and an 2004 R1150RT. Now, the 1150RT is not an R12RT, but they are...

    I'm sure Mr. Glaves will weigh in, but at a minimum, any non-aluminum "fastener" that goes into an aluminum hole and is 6mm or larger, usually gets anti-seize on my bike. I'm no chemist but "two...

    Reminds me of an old joke.

    Girl replies, "I don't know, I've never been bolted"

  16. Anyone have a Recchia Motos top box mount?

    I'm looking for a Recchia Motos mount for my K12RS/GT. Recchia stopped
    making them a year ago due to lack of demand. Don't need the R1150RT
    top box, just the mount.

    Help. :confused:
