      First, I would like to welcome everyone to this K1600 board - covering K1600GT and K1600GTL.

I have in mind a clean and easy to use board – without any advertising or other flipping and rotating images all over.

Main section is probably the Forum, but also find a Gallery (Also for short videos), and the Download section.
Also popular is the K1600 service manual. (You will have to be logged in to see it)

I will always try to keep an updated list of manuals and other important documentation current in the Download section, but please help me out if you find something useful for others out there!

Please put yourself on the Member map, and your country in your profile.
A note on the Member map is that do not put the pin in an exact position where you live – but to the nearest city or place.

Also be aware that I have enabled quite a few languages for the board, and you are able to set this and a lot of other settings after you have registered.   But I will prefer to keep the language used for messages to be English.

If you have a strong feeling for a dedicated section in another language – send me a note!

This site is also available for iPhone and iPod, and will automatically forward you a more suitable version!
And for mobile users – Tapatalk is also fully integrated.

After lurking for quite awhile (and learning much in the process), I thought I'd finally give an intro post and offer what help / information I can.  I've recently moved from mainland USA to Oahu, Hawaii, where the bike has become my daily commuter (...

Recently purchased a 2014 K1600GLT.  From day one, the bike had starting issues.   Once warmed up, and then shut off, the starter bogged heavily for several moments before finally starting the bike.  The best way to describe this is the sound your st...
