    K1600 GTL in Lovelock, Nevada

    Hi, Thanks for the GREAT CLUB! I'm a motorcycle enthusiast, mechanic and custom bike builder out here in the middle of nowhere, with long stretches of nice desert freeway to run the bikes like they're supposed to be run. I have over 40 years of riding and racing experience, a complete shop and mostly do hobby work and customs for friends. I'm currently restoring a crashed K48/K1600 GTL and am always looking for K1600 parts like I currently need a MAIN FRAME WITH A GOOD TITLE OR SALVAGE TITLE, AND LOTS OF PARTS, RADIATOR, PLASTICS, FRONT WHEEL, DUOLEVER GOODIES, etc... If you need any K1600 parts, I'll probably have quite a few after this rebuild, but I like the design of the K1600's so much that I'll keep the first one and probably build more. Stay in touch and let me know what you have cash or trade. Who has opinions on the differences between the K1600GT and the GTL. Does 6 inches really make a difference??? Is the GT a better canyon carver/handler? Is the GTL smoother, better over bumps, with two up, etc...? Where do they put the additional 6 inches, in the rear for the passenger? Which parts are unique to the GTL or GT? Hope to chat with you K1600 riders soon! Keep it in the Wind! THANKS!!!

    Sounds like you've got your work cut out for you! GTL owner here. I've got a Z-tech windshield and set of original exhaust cans taken off at about 11k miles if those are any of the bits your missing.

    Good luck,
    Dave
