How do i fix the speedo cable, and the rear light on my BMW 2003 model K 1200 GT

What is wrong with these parts? The speedo cable should be changed for a new one if broken. Is the bulb in the rear light OK? If so, is there any electricity in the socket? If not, any fuse blown? If not, you have to trace the cable to se if any connection is loose.

On my 03 BMW K1200GT the license plate light has stopped working, Fuse is Good, Light itself tests ok, continuity good, any suggestions where to start?

You can bridge a connection between two of the fuses and it will work. Not ideal though Mine is currently bridged I think it's fuses 1 & 2, the 4AMPs on the left hand side This was only a workaround in order to get a Roadworthy

i think that is normal. as you say,it is a warning light. If everything is ok it should not light up. Should light if trouble is detected. Always lights up when stsarting vehicle,just like car.

Died, Bat light on, oil light on, otherwize no

Your battery is most likely dead. What voltage do you get at the battery as you attempt to start the bike? If it drops to less than 10v, you need to replace the battery. If you still get 12v at the battery, do you get that at the starter as well? If not, could be a loose connection either at the battery (ground cable too) or broken wire in the harness somewhere.

Checking oil level in K1200GT

Check when engine is at operating temp; after turning off the engine wait at least five minutes for the oil to drain back into the sump. Make sure the cycle is upright and the surface is level.READ OFF THE OIL LEVEL AT THE SIGHT GLASS - MAX upper edge of ring mark, MIN lower edge of ring mark (the difference is approx. 0.1 gal / 0.5 liters. To add, remove oil filler plug and pour using a funnel.

My 2003 1200 gt warning

Rene - the manual recommends having the break system checked immediately if the reservoir drops below MIN. It has happened to me once were the warning light was staying on and after carefully riding it down the street in my subdivision the warning light went away.

However if it does not go out after the self diagnostic - there is a possibility the ABS is not functioning and you are only left with a RESIDUAL BRAKING FUNCTION which helps slow the bike but not safe for riding. I would take it to the dealer if the warning stays on and for safety sake -- have it towed.

How does the bmw 2004 k 1200 gt cruse control work

To set the cruise control it is a two step process if it's not on yet. Step one is to turn it on by flicking the (usually) grey cruise button inward (towards the center of the handle bar, step two is to set the cruise control, this step has to be performed while riding above 25MPH, and it's to flick the now fully exposed tab either forward or backword. This should set the cruise control and the indicator on the dash should confirm it.

K1200gt head apparently needs shimms at huge cost accourding to the mechanic it has low compression but it runs beautiful,, no oil loss or tappet noise either, this was at the 100000 Kilometer service

Well, the shim adjustment must be done, the question is are you too late? I presume that you are talking about valve shims, which is how the valves are adjusted. Valves work their way into the head, over time, and this closes the clearance, when you hold the valve slightly open, the valve and seat get damaged.This is the time to fix the low compression cylinder, as it will only deteriorate more from this point. Likely a valve issue...And it appears that is what your mechanic is indication. NO MORE adjustment means that the valve has worked its way into the head too far. Valve job time. Sorry.

Noise from right side of

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

I suspect that it's the timing chain tensioner as well. It really makes noise when worn out. I strongly suggest that during the tensioner replacement, have the timing chain be replaced too. This will prevent future engine breakage.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have a 2004 K1200GT

Yes, there is a 12 V accy. socket on your bike which can be used to charge the battery while it is still in the bike or for powering 12 V gadgets. If memory serves the socket is located on the LHS of the bike.

GPS consume very little power, so you could wire it directly to the battery with a small (3-5A) fuse in the line. Battery is located directly under the seat.

I noticed that the brake

You are correct...you bleed the system from a valve similar to what you find on a brake system, located at the slave cylinder on the bellhousing.However, just like your brakes, the system is not supposed to loose fluid, therefore you need to find the leak and correct it or you will be right back where you started in a couple of hours or days. check master, fluid line and slave for leaks. Good luck with it.
