Posted (edited)

So I am offering up for sale my trusty 2007 BMW R1200 GS.

 

I am the third owner I believe. I bought it in 2015 from another TWT member with about 17K miles on it.

 

This is NOT a garage queen, but it has been taken care of and is ready to go anywhere! There are no outstanding recalls or service bulletins on it that I am aware of. I can provide VIN so dealer can check. After I bought it, I had the rear wheel hub recall done and a new oil sight glass installed because the original was leaking.

 

I've always run Mobile 1 full synthetic in it.

 

I have a clear Texas title in hand in my name.

 

I DO NOT have the stock exhaust, grab rails, seat, or tool kit. The bike did not have the OEM kit when I bought it. So my general tool kit does not go with it, just the bits specific to this bike. I do have the BMW spark plug socket, the funky little tools for removing the oil filler cap, and the spark plug pulling gadget.

 

[edit] I just noticed in some of the pics the rear mud guard/fender thing is shown. That is GONE. Somewhere along the line it just came apart and got caught in the rear wheel. It was destroyed. I took the one on my 05 GS off before that could happen. I am not really sure why they put those on there unless it is some kind of regulatory thing. It is not like it kept the back of the bike from getting all nasty. Anyway, I just want to be clear about that so there is no confusion.

 

The tires are at the end of their life. I have another TKC 80 front about half used and a Shinko 805 rear half used that I will mount if desired. Or, I will just give them to you. I like to start trips with a new set of tires, so these are just tires I removed before my last trip. I usually remount them to use them up once the tires from the trip are gone.

 

Asking price: $7500

 

The big picture (tail bag NOT included, but all mounting brackets included.)

Rear Ohlins: rebuilt by certified Ohlin tech (Motorcycles Unlimited) in 2017, maybe 5K miles ago.

Cool sticker on screen will be removed. That is the screen off an Adventure model GS. Same for the little side deflectors on each side. Also the GSA "beak" on the front fender. The black spot on the left side of the fender behind the beak is the only serious cosmetic blemish on the bike. I wasn't paying attention and got a bit too close with a power washer and it hit a rock chip in the clear coat and stripped it almost instantly. It is purely cosmetic, no damage to the fender. I just haven't bothered to get it painted and it's never gotten worse.

Oil cooler guard, metal, brand unknown. BOTH head lights upgraded to Cyclops LEDs, VERY bright and MUCH better than stock lights!!

I fell down on Cow Creek road on a SLICK water crossing at about 5mph. It scraped the windshield. I replaced the right blinker with a new one.

The metal bar is slightly bent on the right side, kind of hard to see, but it is there, so in the interest of full disclosure...

Handle bars were NOT bent in the drop. The handguards were bent. I replaced them with new guards on both sides.

2" Rox risers make standing while riding VERY nice and comfy! Also, very adjustable.

Foam grip wraps make the grip far more comfy for my hands, work great with the heated grips, easily removed.

The drop on Cow Creek Rd., bent my crash bars. So I replaced them with new SW Motech bars. The bars hit the head guard on the right side and bent it. The bars and guard did their job and the actual head is fine.

The bags are perfectly functional. They do have some scrapes and minor scratches just from being used. They are not dented. The bike key opens them.

The engine guard bars shown here are the ones that put the dent in the head guard and have since been replaced with the SW Motech bars.

These are pics from a trip through New Mexico, Arizona, Southern Utah, and Western Colorado with my daughter, Sarah. She was 11 at the time.

I suspect many of you will instantly know where this was...

I have two tail bags I’ll throw in as well.

 

I think I might have used this once, for a day or so, before I bought the hard top case. Basically brand new.
484838f4-13d5-4dff-b524-c01eae395959-jpe

 

This came with the bike
2d7c26c4-569d-4387-9c3e-258812d626ad-jpe

 

I have the manual that came with the bike and a Haynes service manual.
42fc4cf6-94fd-4483-9a40-55a4bbf3e716-jpe

 

I’ll throw in the feeler gauges for checking valve clearances. That other gadget is for locking the engine at TDC when checking valves.
a32df935-8443-4e34-aac5-f57e156a95d0-jpe

 

I’ll throw in this fantastic oil filter wrench, handmade by our own DesertSkies  on TWT & ADV.
20bf8dcc-2589-4e6a-8791-c1badf08be66-jpe

 

Just had the bike inspected and Texas tags renewed.

If you look in many of the pictures, you will see the PIAA lights mounted to a long round silver bar. It was junk. It wouldn't stay in place and the mounts eventually broke. I replaced it with one of these,

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/denali-auxiliary-light-mount-bmw-r1200gs-adventure

This mounts MUCH better! Also, it pulled the lights in a bit closer to the fender so they don't stick out so far. This makes it less likely they will get hit in a drop.

Here is the old mount,

These two pics show the bike with the new mount,

Make me an offer... The worst that can happen is I might decline. But, I might accept :java:
