Tyre pressure

Look at the sidewall of both tires. There will be a 'MAX PSI' embossed on the tire. It will probably say Max 45 PSI. At 45psi the bike will ride like a rock. At 15psi it will ride really squirrely. Find a psi at which you feel the bike handles well and rides well. One rider may weigh 125 pounds and the next rider may weigh 300 pounds. The best psi for each rider will be different due to weight. Chances are that 30 to 35 psi will do the trick. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

I Have a BMW K1200GT

Hello. Unbelievably the change oil warning light is not resettable without either going to a dealership or owning an expensive "fault code BMW resetting tool". If you do a lot of your own work, the tool may be a good investment. here is a link to purchase one http://www.bimmerzone.com/resettool.htm#2

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.
