...and on the other hand I regularly ran out of fuel on my K12S with, variously, 6,13, 19 and 21 miles left on the computer...

It seems the black ones have that issue  :-X

It's because they're the fastest colour!

Is your (black) K13S more accurate, Brian?

Seeing as I have only done 47 miles in the three years since I bought it, I have no idea.... ;D

Except my K12S was the fastest blue and white colour scheme  :D

Exactly! The screws are easily found inside the coaming at the base of the mirror stalk and from there it is a doddle.

And then I get some flak occasionally for saying only buy a K with a full dealer service history...

If you don't know how your bike works, take it to someone who does.

To enlarge on what Steve said about the seals, piston seals are designed to 'flex' when the brakes are applied, stretching outward ever so slightly. When you release the pressure, the seals return to their 'normal' shape and position in the groove, taking the piston back with them ever so slightly and if it works, this link shows you in a piccie...

There are tons of images and good videos on the web showing how to do stuff properly, so please, either do it the right way or take it to someone who knows how, we can't afford to lose members to brake failure and make sure that you get the caliper stripped, cleaned and new seals fitted and if the pistons are corroded in the seal 'swept' area after a good clean up, then new pistons are in order too.

Nope! Never had an engine fault light. There was a fault code logged which I cleared occasionally with the GS-911 but apart from that it never knew.

No, you missed my point.

A Power Commander with a zero map installed is like having no PC at all in the circuit. Even with totally standard fuelling and the Llama sensor disconnected, the bikeran as faultlessy as a K12 ever could without a re-map. Mine was disconnected for 22,000 miles (and probably still is) with nary a problem.

I hear Austrian motorcycle cops have their sense of humour removed when they join the force.

If you went via Royal Wootton Bassett down to Calne, did you spot the ENORMOUS motorcycle in a field on the right just before the Bug and Spider roundabout?
