About

When the R1200 version of BMW’s GS on/off-road bike appeared in 2004 it wasn’t just an upgrade of the old 1150, it was a new generation of the Munich company’s fabled Boxer twins. Thirty kilograms of weight was shed despite the engine gaining a balance shaft and the chassis was completely revised. Among a host of improvements, perhaps the most revolutionary was the Single Wire System, using technology borrowed from the car world. A year after the first 1200GS was launched the range was extended with the R1200 ST and RT. These models carried on BMW’s tradition of cleverly differentiated sports tourer and full-house tourer, two motorcycles that look quite similar on paper but exhibit very different characters on the road. In another indication that this was an evolution, not a revolution, most of the R1200 range got the upgrade immediately. The GS and the RT tourer plus the GS Adventure all got the new twin-cam heads in 2010. The R1200R roadster, that didn’t appear until 2006, didn’t get the new heads until 2011. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of BMW repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our BMW R1200 repair manual is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your bike.
