2012 GTL for sale, Nicest One Yet

Hello. I have zero financial interest in this bike but just stumbled upon it a little while ago. Visit Kissel Motorsports in Tyrone, Pa. for pictures and details. Loaded with high dollar accessories, 4,700 miles, $12,000

I went to that website just to check it out. They have some crazy deals there on relatively low mile GT's and gtl's. For anyone looking to get into a k1600 or even a 1200 they have a ton a smokin' deals on low mileage bikes between 7 and $12k

This is a great dealership. I have purchased multiple bikes from them over the past 5 years. They have a great service department as well.

Buyer beware of any '12 model that hasn't had the pistons replaced...

So true! In fact, I believe even the 2013's were affected. I've steered clear of both years honestly.
There are a couple of 2013's for sale on this board that are BEAUTIFUL! ....yet, the elephant is in the room.

@KHawk , they changed the pistons mid-year 2012, the '13s are good to go.

This seems to be a summery of the 2012 piston situation and resolution.

Until I read this, I didn't know I had a problem. After 7 years and about 40,000 miles, my guess is that by now there would have been a failure or software might have helped to address the issue. BMW is not talking... Since I plan to keep my bike for a few more years, only time will tell.

@DanDiver , software not part of the equation. And there's no way to know if/when a failure may occur. I was at 49K on '12 GT when I replaced the motor. Replacement not associated with piston failure.

Does anyone really know the numbers of failures and years involved or is all the information anecdotal on this forum?
