Can anyone advise me. I want to change the pipe on my 1200 GS (back box only), for something with a bit more character, but not too noisy. At the moment it seems like I can only find Remus and Akrapovic. Can anyone advise what they have done, and are they road legal yet giving the bike a bit more character? Also some idea of costs (aluminium is fine)
been looking at buying one of these bikes 2nd hand, but not sure which one to go for. i have never had a bmw before, so not sure what to expect, having heard tales of batterys and engine/drive seals needing replacing at low milages,any body else had problems i should know about i like the look of the 1150 to the 1200's rather plasticy fairing, a dealer i spoke to said the 1200 was far better bike but it was nearly 4 grand more. thanks kevin.

I'm getting a bit miffed at the faults recurring on my GS, so thought worth giving you all a list to open up for suggestions on how get some er, "after sales service" 100 miles - gearbox imploded. Very kindly replaced by BMW. No explanations. Bike still flings itself out of 2nd gear, usually when accellerating round a corner. Battery - temp. gets frosty, make sure you have the AA on speeddial Electrics - where to start. 1. Go off road or over a speed bump, all electrics fail. No ABS, lights, etc etc. 2.

Help! I'm after some feedback on the older model (ie upto 2005) K1200GT, as I'm considering buying a '03/04 model. MCN shows only a review on the new model, and Parker's doesn't include a listing for GTs at all. What should I look out for when buying one (probably from a dealer), and what does it cost to run etc. Any info welcome.
