The computer is operated simply and conveniently via the ?BC? button on the right adjuster. The following functions are available: Distance before refueling - Average speed -Average fuel consumption - Oil level warning - Outside temperature with black ice warning at 37 degrees Farenheit
  • Handlebar Adjustment: The height of the entire handlebar including the instrument clusters can be adjusted easily and without difficulty. The handlebar can be adjusted in four stages by a total of 40 mm towards the rider?s upper body without the need for spacers or other components. This enables rapid and uncomplicated alignment to the rider and riding style, as well as optimal ergonomics in every respect.
  • Low Rider's Seat: The Low rider?s seat is between 31.5 - 32.3 inches and the standard is 32.3 - 33.0 inches. Shorter riders too can sit astride the K 1200 GT safely and without discomfort if the low dualseat is fitted. It is 3/4 inch lower than the standard seat and can thus be adjusted to a seat height of 31.5 inches or 32.3 inches. The total inner leg lengths are 69.3 inches or 70.9 inches respectively.
  • EVO Paralever: The BMW Motorrad EVO Para-lever combines the two functions of rear wheel location and power transmission. The significantly more compact and lighter EVO Paralever compensates load reversals yet more effectively, offers greater ground clearance and is impressive in its design. The suspension strut is con-nected via a progressive linkage to the rear wheel location, thereby providing significant advantages for the initial response and the progressive action of the suspension strut. In the standard configuration the spring preload can be hydraulically adjusted via an extendable handwheel.
