Howz the K16 quirks doing nowadays?
I had a 2015 GT that left me stranded on the road in 2016.
I waited till 2015 to get a K16 because the maiden 2012 were riddled with quirks. In spite, the fork squeakiness persisted on the 2015 model.
I was in the middle of a Summer long tour, when the squeky fork syndrome began. Unfortunately, mine involved such sticktion that it was not cured with simple dose of silicone (per forum prescription). Mine also made the handlebars wiggle at over 60mph in a manner similar to the beginning of a minor tank-slapping scenario.
I hobbled into a BMW dealership and traded it for an RT.
Recently, I been getting in the mood for a K16
Now I read of CPU problems, more water pump, parking under hot Sun cause 'no-start' problems.
hey! You don't have to convince me of the great fun to be had with K16 ...at the same time, I am not a devotee of it this model either. I need a bike that is dependable and can go for at least three months on the road without breaking down. I am not into quirkie bikes.
What is going on with the K16 nowadays?...particularly, have they improved in reliability?
...If it wasn't for a Supernova, I wouldn't even be here...
