    Mushy suspension

    I sold my '05 K1200S and purchased a '06 K1200GT in favor of the more upright riding position due to chronic neck pain. The bike I bought seems to have a very soft suspension, regardless of the ESA position. I feel the suspension move from the rider, rider with bags and rider/passenger settings, but it doesn't seem to tighten up in the sport mode. Is this just a differance from the "S" to "GT", or should I be looking at a service?

    Seeing no other replies after a couple days....I am guessing that somehow your damping control circuit is shot. You should have a noticable difference between Sport, normal and Comfort settings in any spring preload position. Sounds like you need to track down a fuse or whatever we have now days, or more likely, a trip to the dealer?

    No fuses on the bike

    If you got a GS-911 you could check codes else you'll need the dealer to look at
