K 1200 RS/GT
Can the RS/ GT be improved at all? Actually, it can as we’ve found out. One thing for instance is the seating position which many riders felt uncomfortable with. So we developed the adjustable VARIO ERGO handle bar risers and received a lot of praise from customers. In conjunction with our ERGO seats even long tours are now a comfortable and relaxed affair. An absolute sensible part to fit are our additional lights, these superior lights add safety and make night riding much more enjoyable. The demand for additional storage capacity was fulfilled with various luggage systems such as the adjustable tank bag “RSR” and the rear seat bag “RS + GT” which swallows up to 25 litres of volume.

“Vario-Ergo” Handle Bar Riser
Veteran 1200 RS or GT riders are always easily recognisable by their hunched gait. Joking aside, the original handlebar concept of the RS/GT is good, but do dictate a rather forward leaning riding position. Most riders prefer a more upright and comfortable riding position. In order to find the best solution for each rider we have designed our handle bar risers so that an adjustment similar to the original design is possible. The adjustment has three positions and is quite easy to change (similar to original). K 1200 RS: The bars are moved 30 - 42 mm higher and also 20-27 mm towards the rider. K 1200 GT: The bars are moved 27 – 31 higher and 20 – 37 mm towards the rider. With the bar risers fitted the RS/GT has a long range riding comfort comparable with touring bikes. The risers are made of aircraft spec high quality machined aluminium, and are anodised silver. A “K” emblem on each side is included in the kit. Comes complete with all fitting material. TÜV approved.

Cruise Control
This is a simple but effective cruise control solution. On long riding stints the throttle hand can become tired and cramped, with the cruise control installed this becomes less of a problem. The Cruise Control is fitted instead of the right hand side end weight, and simply by turning the adjustment wheel the Cruise control applies pressure onto the twist grip. The adjustment wheel has wide spaced teeth that allow easy turning of it even while wearing a glove, so it can be dialled for exactly the required pressure. To disable, the adjustment wheel is simply turned the other direction and in a matter of seconds the twist grip returns to normal function. Available in three versions: 1) Black coated steel body “Cruise Control” with silver anodised aluminium adjustment wheel. Replaces the right side bar end weight (the left side end weight stays original). 2) Alu Light Weight Kit Silver, consists of a silver anodised light weight aluminium body “Cruise Control” with a blue adjustment wheel, as well as matching silver aluminium left side bar end weight. 3) Alu Light Weight Kit “Polished”, consists of a highly polished, shiny light weight aluminium body “Cruise Control” with a silver adjustment wheel, as well as matching polished aluminium left side bar end weight.

Brake Lever Enlarger
It‘s important to be able to find the rear brake pedal when you need it! The original brake lever tip is a bit too small, the enlarger slips easily over the existing one and increases the overall size of the tip. It substantially increases the size of the rather small original brake pedal and provides a greater margin of safety and level of comfort. The cut serrations provide excellent grip, especially important on wet days. Anodised silver. Once you fit it, you won’t go back…About 6 mm wider and 15 mm longer than original. Pushed on and secured with set screw. For K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8160169

Gear Lever Enlarger
Same as with brake lever, it increases the overall size of the small original lever. Makes changing gears easier and safer (no slipping), especially when wet. Machined from aluminium with grip surface. Silver anodised. Easy to fit. For K 1100/1200 RS + K 1200 GT Part-No.: 8160431

Passenger Footrest Lowering
The footrest lowering set will move the passenger footrest 60 mm lower. The change in footrest position will increase the knee and hip angle, that can make all the difference during those long Autobahn/Motorway trips. Better blood circulation and less cramps will make a full tank ride much more enjoyable. The part is made of silver anodised CNC machined high quality aluminium and comes with all components needed, including a “K” emblem for each side. No modifications to bike needed. TÜV approved. For K 1200 RS + K 1200 GT. Part-No.: 8160135

Z-Screen
The tall Z-Screen screen is 42 mm taller than the original, and with an overall size of more than 50 cm wide and high offers vastly improves weather protection for the K 1200 RS rider. The screen was designed to reduce buffeting, a small air inlet in the lower screen lets air enter behind the screen to reduce turbulence and negative pressure. We have extensively checked this screen during one of our tests, 800 km on the famous German Autobahn mostly in top speed. The test showed that even in these extremely high speeds a relaxed and stress free riding is possible. Also, the effectiveness of the adjustment is even more evident with this larger screen. Available are either the lightly tinted tall screen (51,5 cm tall), or the slightly darker (Shadow) version with a reduced height (35,5 cm) for the sporty rider who does not need a lot of wind protection. Made of scratch resistant Lexan plastic and fits the existing mounting points. The original adjustability is still usable (see “Adjustment Lever” below), and the screen comes with TÜV approval.

Adjustment Lever
The K 1200 RS has a screen with two possible positions. Lowering the screen is ok, but raising the screen into the top position requires the rider to get off the bike, and then pull the screen up. So if one is riding on a motorway at night and it suddenly begins to rain it is very hazardous to pull over, dismount, raise the screen and then re-start. Our CNC machined aluminium lever allows raising and lowering the screen quick, fast + without a problem, no need to touch the screen with gloves. The lever is silver anodised, and comes with a “K” emblem. For K 1200 RS (2002 models onwards only). Part-No.: 8010370

RIZOMA Speedster Mirrors
Only RIZOMA can manage to stylistically improve a BMW just with the help of a set of mirrors. The original mirrors are not a match for these lovingly crafted beauties. The mirrors have a standard 130 mm long stem (roughly same length as original), if needed this can be extended to 150 mm with an extension piece (included with stem).

Top Yoke Thermometer
This high quality part is not only an attractive replacement for the original plastic cover in the centre of your top yoke, it provides you with a reading of the temperature that you are riding through. This is especially useful when riding in cold weather because it can give you an idea how close you are to the freezing point and make you aware of the potential for ice on the road. The dial resembles the BMW instrument design and features both Celsius and Fahrenheit scales. Fitting the Thermometer is a simple task, it is glued into position with normal automotive silicone paste. The Thermometer body is made of a silver plated aluminium alloy.
Note: The temperature reading may vary from the actual outer temperature due to its fitted position (direct sun etc).

Tip: Before fitting the enlarger, paint the underside of your original side stand with black paint to prevent further rusting of the blank + scuffed metal.

For K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8500039

Tank + Paint Protection “Venture Shield”
A flexible and indestructible plastic protection foil that was originally designed to protect propeller and rotor blades from stone damage. Speed-of-sound aircraft application to protect your BMW! This almost invisible foil protects the paint from stones, sand, bugs and any other flying object that may cause scuffs, scratches or abrasive marks as well as accidental marks from tools, keys and other day to day objects that might come close to the bike. As any damage to the paint is detrimental to the resale value of a bike it is important to keep it in a good as possible condition, so the investment is worth considering. The foil absorbs most of the impact energy, it makes sense to fit the head light foil as well. It is UV resistant, but lets UV rays shine through so that there are no differences in the colour of the paint between protected and non protected areas of the bike. Each piece is custom made and cut to an exact shape for a perfect fit. The foil clings very well, but can be removed quite easily. Bike can be cleaned as before (even steam cleaned). The kit comes complete with cleaning fluid, tools and everything that is needed and can easily be fitted by anyone with a bit of patience (see fitting pictures in “Accessories” section). Available is a tank set, complete set and a “Universal” foil. The 3 piece Tank Set consists of 2 foils for sides and one for the top of the tank. The Complete Set consists of a tank set plus additional foils for the fairing and head lamp, forks, mudguard and various other small foils (see picture). The “Universal” foil is a single 20 x 30 cm foil, cut and use wherever else needed.

Oil Cooler Grill
The cooler grill protects the delicate oil cooler fins from damage from stones, insects and other flying objects. It is almost impossible to clean a cooler from insects and dirt without bending the cooler fins, and after a while the front of the bike does not look as nice as it should. Fitting the cooler grill not only ensures that the cooler is protected, but after a quick clean with a rough brush the bike always looks nice. The mesh used is made of tough and durable stainless steel and is strongly bonded to the frame. K 1200 RS (form 2001 onwards) + K 1200 GT Part-No.: 8160472

Cleaning Tip:
Anybody who ever looked at a cooler grill after a ride knows how all sorts of wildlife and dirt is stuck onto the cooler protector. Cleaning this mess is fairly easy when our protectors are fitted, ingredients needed are: A paper towel, hot water, one tea bag and a cup: Press a wet paper towel gently against the grill. Then use the hot water + tea bag and make yourself a nice cup of tea. After about 20-30 minutes all the insects will have softened up by the wet towel and will easily come off the grill. Whatever is left can be quickly brushed off. Et voilà!

Extenda Fender
The rear section of the front mudguard is not long enough to effectively keep road debris off the exhaust and front of the engine. The mudguard extender solves this problem effectively and elegantly. The updated version of the RS/GT extender is very easy to fit and does not need drilling or modifying of the mudguard. Strong double sided adhesive strips and the bolted clamp are used for a strong connection to the mudguard. Made of tough black plastic. Comes complete with all parts needed. For K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8110197

Carbon Fibre Rear Wheel Hugger
These Ilmberger-made huggers protects the rear shock absorber unit, silencer, collector, rear subframe and lower legs/ feet of the passenger. Water and dirt cannot be blown freely on the passenger feet and legs as well as penetrate deep into the bike‘s systems. Especially the rear shock is protected against premature wear. A must for any owner who loves and wants to and protect his BMW (and the passenger). The hugger is fastened to the swingarm via a curved metal bracket that is bonded directly to the carbon fibre hugger body. This elegant solution shows again that when it comes to carbon fibre applications Ilmberger has the design and quality to produce a very practical but good looking part. Easy to fit, sold with all fitting material needed. K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8160960

RR - Oil Temperature Gauge
This precision temperature gauge replaces the original oil filler plug and lets you keep an eye on the important motor oil temperature. To keep the needle steady the instrument is filled with a damping fluid, the air bubble left is to allow heat expansion. The gauge provides accurate reading, the “Tourenfahrer” motorcycle magazine test results say: “... The accuracy is very good… and is definitely worth it’s cost”. The outer ring provides a solid grip and makes installation and removal easy. For K 1100/1200 RS + K 1200 GT Part-No.: 8154006

The strong magnet fitted to the sump plug traps those knifesharp, abrasive small ferrous particles and therefore reduces the overall wear of the engine. Helps analyse damage and detect possible wear earlier.
Note: It is recommended to be change the copper washer whenever plug is removed (order separately) to avoid annoying oil leaks (also with original plug). So, also whenever changing oil don’t forget to order a new one.

On bikes where there are no fuel taps on the tank this part makes really sense as no fuel is spilled on garage floor! These quick release fuel line connectors have valves that close off the fuel at both ends when they are pulled apart. Fits all 8 mm pipes. Fuel, oil and acid resistant. Comes as a set of male + female connectors inc. “O” rings. Replacement “O”-rings available separately. Note: Some bikes have two separate fuel lines, in this case order 2 sets.

Tank pads effectively protect the tank from scratches and damage. The three-piece kits are each made specifically for the tanks of the RS + GT to provide a good fit. The centre pad ensures no damage to the tank from zippers or belts. Soft, black plastic material, self adhesive. Easy to fit. K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 1250082

Safety Wire
This steel safety wire can safe you a lot of trouble and money. The mirrors of the K 1100 RS are not bolted on to the bike, they use a quick release connection allowing the mirrors to fall off at an impact. This has safety reasons, but sometimes even a small amount of force will cause the expensive mirrors to disconnect and fall onto the road. The sight of a following bus crunching your mirror is not a pretty one and can be avoided by fitting the wire. The plastic coated steel wire is designed to withstand a load of 17 kg, that should ensure the mirror stays on the bike under normal circumstances. For K 1100 RS (Sold as a set of two.) Part-No.: 8600730

Odyssey Pure Lead Battery
This battery is the solution for blinking ABS warning lights and non starting BMW bikes. The extremely strong starting power ensures that the bike will start even in very cold weather. Amazing starting power + extremely long life (can last 8-10 years if treated correctly) + vibration proof. Will hold the charge for months when not in use (needs to be fully charged beforehand) and is totally maintenance free. The special pure lead “Dry” technology made this battery spill-proof, weather proof and reliable.

PC680 “Powerpak” ABS blinking problem
Because the PC680 is much stronger it eliminates the annoying blinking ABS lamps. Background: Only above a certain battery voltage does the ABS function correctly. Conventional batteries often drop below this voltage, especially after night riding or repeated starting actions.

Same size as original but with 280 amp. (!) starting power, 680 (!!) peak starting current, (conventional 20 Ah battery has only 120 A and a very good “Gel” battery about 170 A). Size: 6,2 Kg, 185 x 79 x 169 mm The battery is sold ready to go (no initial charging needed) complete with metal adapter. For K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8200003

Additional Light Set
Additional lights are gathering more and more fans, the main reason is safety- “See and be seen”. Properly mounted and adjusted (to avoid blinding oncoming traffic…) they will greatly enhance night vision in every weather condition compared to the sometimes poor original lights. They are best worked in conjunction with the “low” beam (not legal in every country, please check!!). The “Micro Flooter” lamp used for the RS and GT - Sets has a compact square shaped black metal body. Our tests showed that it‘s high tech projector technique (55 watts) produces a powerful light despite the smaller than most size. It produces a soft-light transition at the edge of the light beam, and illuminates the road sides almost like a cornering light (helps to avoid wildlife jumping out of bushes at night). The set mounts inside the fairing and is almost invisible when not on. It consists of a laser cut silver anodised aluminium bracket, 2 lamps, H3 bulbs, relays, switch, wiring, in short everything needed to fit onto the RS or GT. With “E” approval.

Test results
Mounting Test: We tested many lamps, and found that all of them smashed against the mudguard or rubbed against the forks in certain conditions (We test all possible and “extreme” positions such as bottoming out the forks, riding down the side walk with steering on full lock etc.). This is the reason why we use the Micro Flooter, after extensive tests it passed all our testing criteria. Light Test: We conducted extensive lighting tests with original lamps against additional lights. It proved that only with additional lights fitted a perfect light coverage of the road is possible as well as good side light.

The results in detail:
K 1100 RS K 1100 RS
• Original light is inconsistent and patchy, with strong intensity differences. • With the Micro Flooter fitted a very good light carpet (highest increase from all bikes tested). Overall illumination definitely better than with original. • Good side coverage (cornering light) and soft transition on upper edge of beam. • No self – blinding. • No blinding of oncoming traffic. • Our opinion: The K1100 RS should only be used at night with additional lights installed.

Test!
We test all lamps with the use of a light meter, our testing rig and with help of photographs. Many of the lights seen mounted on the rig have good light properties, but cannot be fitted because they are too large or are still in evaluation. Our testing procedure is also a stern test for the Hawker battery, the only one that survives such a “marathon”.

K 1200 GT/RS

• Closes the dark gap on road between head light beam and bike. • Good side coverage (cornering light) and soft transition on upper edge of beam. • No self – blinding and less shadows of front whell left + right side. • No blinding of oncoming traffic. • Our opinion: The RS/GT can now be ridden in a “sporty” manner also at night.

Blue Longlife Performance Air Filters
“Blue” air filters for BMW were specially made for us by Green, a European manufacturer with motor sport experience and excellent production methods. The filters are made to a very high standard to ensure the best airflow and cleaning properties. They enjoy better air flow than many similar filter types, the low pressure manufacturing process ensures that there is very little spillage of the black plastic into the woven cotton sheets (more spillage = less filtering area…). A few facts:
• Deep pleats in the double-layered cotton create a 10-20% increase in filtration surface. This increase allows a greater volume of air to move more freely into your engine cylinders. • Blue uses 2 layers of woven cotton compared to most other brands who use 4 layers of cotton gauze. There are 3 main benefits to woven cotton: it’s thinner, holds oil better, and is stronger. • Blue filter’s rubber mouldings are almost exact around the edges with no wasted surface area. Using this more efficient process the air flow is greater than the same size filter that is mould injected. • Blue Longlife Performance Filters are designed to be oiled. The oil creates a positive (+) magnetic charge with the mesh, which attracts the negatively (-) charged dust particles. The dust and dirt builds around the mesh to form a tunnel. This allows the cotton to remain cleaner for maximum flow. • Normal servicing every 50 000 km or once a year. In very dusty conditions re-oiling or servicing may be needed. • Pleat design: The filters have pleats that are parallel to the width. This makes the filter more rigid and stronger and reduces air leaks. • Stainless steel mesh on both sides • Custom Fitment Tabs (for square filters only). Plastic air-boxes can warp out of shape or even distort from the heat radiated from the engine. These tabs also benefit the filter by centring and aligning it in the airbox, so the filter is evenly sealed. • Easy to fit, just replace the original with Blue Filter • 1 Million km warranty • Warning sticker for air box

A smooth surface and soft flexible rubber base ensures an air tight seal. Deep pleats in the double-layered cotton create a 10-20% increase in filtration surface and improved air flow. Blue Filters are produced using a time-consuming 4-step production process which virtually eliminates rubber seepage into the cotton. Other manufacturers use a mass production fast pressuremoulded injection process, but this process pushes rubber onto the filtering surface which can restrict the airflow by up to 25%.

Remove the catalytic converter?
No problem. This system allows the existing Lambda (oxygen) sensor to be fitted. For the sensor it does not matter if the “cat” is removed as long as it can measure the oxygen and pass the information to the “Motronik” unit. The removal of the cat also allows the use of low quality petrol + usually “leaded” petrol.

Performance Controller
Modern motorcycles with computerised fuel injection are limited in their ability to adjust for changing conditions. This clever electronic device allows the rider to adjust the amount of fuel delivered at any riding situation in order to optimise the response and performance wherever the potential for improvement exists. Inherent lean mixtures, sluggish response and slow transition from cruise to rapid acceleration and the dreaded surging can all be dialled out. When fitting performance parts such as free flowing air filters, larger air ducts, sport collectors, open exhausts, camshafts and any other tuning measure require the addition of fuel in order to really benefit from them. Changing fuel octane rates or fuel qualities as well as high altitudes all require different fuel amounts (with old bikes you would change the main jets, raise the needle etc to achieve this), the Performance Controller lets you adjust for the best performance for all those eventualities. As the Performance Controller only adds fuel there is no danger of damage to the engine. Features 6 adjustment ranges, with tree large adjustment buttons (can be adjusted with gloves on) and a waterproof casing. The Performance Controller is easily plugged into the existing wiring loom using simple connectors (no cutting or modifying loom) and manages to get more out of the bike even with base settings dialled in. The extremely compact case (84 x 50 x 10 mm) is easily stowed away on the bike. Includes a 30 day return option, enough time to be convinced of the qualities of this system!
Note: The PerformanceController cannot be used together with any chip-tuning

How does it work?
Modern engines have to be able to pass stringent emissions test for different countries, therefore the works settings represent a compromise. The PerformanceController optimises the settings using the good base provided by the original injection mapping by adding fuel to a number of riding situations. The 8 coloured LED’s at the front show in what mode you are presently in (tick-over, acceleration, cruise etc) and with the help of the 3 buttons at the front the fuel mixture can be adjusted. Basically, the PerformanceController allows the rider to use the classic adjustments of a carburettor for the modern fuel injected bike, but with the comfort of pushing electronic buttons. And the best thing is: the PerformanceController does not require any permanent modifications to the bike or bike electronics, removed in a matter of minutes and the bike is back to standard.
Tip: A demo showing how simple the adjustment of the Performance controller is can be found on our www.wunderlich.de website under the part number.

The PerformanceController for the K 1200 RS + GT is currently in development, ask your dealer for details. K 1100 RS K 1200 RS + GT Part-No.: 8530117 Part-No.: 8530115

BRAKING Wave Discs
BRAKING are the pioneers of the ever popular wave brake disc technology and are therefore always a step ahead. The wave disc has several technical advantages compared to a normal one, and has the added benefit that is also looks great! All BRAKING discs are made of a special patented high-carbon content rust free steel. This “Karbonit”-steel offers a high coefficient of friction for best deceleration properties. The shape of the disc is achieved by precision Cad/Cam laser cutting processes which ensures the best tolerances. All non contact surfaces are blackened using an electrophoresis process. All BRAKING discs are ABE approved. Sold as a single disc. The advantages of the wave discs are:
• • • • • • •

The wave form aids self-cleaning of disc and pad. Lighter than original, reduced unsprung weight. Lighter disc = less gyroscopic effect = better handling. Strong braking action with good braking “feel”. Even wear of pad. The upper disc looses more heat (larger surface) The outer “teeth” can expand (grow) outwards when hot, therefore not causing the disc to warp. • The constant change of contact area between disc and pad reduces the “grabbing” effect.

Note: When changing discs it is strongly recommended to change the brake pads as well. Also, make sure to fit + secure the disc bolts with thread locking fluid! K 1100 RS front* Part-No.: 8130076
*For the K 1100 RS we offer only a standard (not wave) replacement BRAKING brake disc.

K 1200 RS front** Part-No.: 8130052
**Note: 1200 GT discs are in preparation, ask your dealer for details

Best deceleration and longevity. The braking systems of the BMW require a pad that will ensure best braking action in all weather conditions or braking situations. These pads provide good braking “feel” even in wet weather and provide good feedback. For the front we recommend the high quality sintered material, these have excellent progressive braking properties, withstand high temperatures and are hard wearing. For the rear we recommend the use of the semi-metal pads. They reduce blocking of the rear wheel and provide good feed back. These pads are first choice when using original discs, but of course they are perfectly matched for the BRAKING Wave Discs. ABE approved.
Sold as a pair for each single disc.
