Question New to this website

I'm looking for a used 2010 R1200GS. What problems should I look for and what should this bike cost ? Thanks for any help.

Search the model you want on Cycle Trader, Craig List, etc. for a baseline on prices.

Spend time on this forum learning about potential problems with certain model years or BMW MOA Hex Head Cam Head section for more on those vintage bikes.

If you find one you like, look for comprehensive service records, good. No records, bad.

I must put off the search

I must put off the search for a while. Some family problems have occured and I must take care of those first. I do appreciate all the suggestions.

I have a 2010. The bike has just gone 55000km and has had zero inherent issues. They can have a tendency to overheat in gridlock traffic, but I've only struck this twice in our Australian summers so I'm talking 35įC plus. As with any bike, regular maintenance will reward the owner.
In general, you would want to know what the final drive splines are like, although this is less likely to be an issue with paralever models.
These bikes are solid and I can definitely recommend.
