    2012 Quick reference guide
    « on: 2018-07-26 02:17:37 »
    Hello to the forum.
    Just purchased a 2012 K 1600, have all of the manual save for the quick redfernce guide that is mentioned in the rider's manual on page 44.
    Is this a critical reference guide or can I get all that I would to know by just taking time to figure out the myriad functions of the left hand grip and the multi controller?
    Noodled about the web (a waste of time) hoping to be able to locate one and order it to no avail.
    Fwiw, I have owned and ridden a lot of motorcycles, but this six cylinder wonder has given me one d-yn-o-m-i-t-e WOW factor.

      Congrats and welcome.I never even knew there is a quick reference guide; never missed it.Everything there is to know is in the manual.If you want to make use of all the bells and whistles the bike has to offer, I'm afraid you do have to read the manual.Crucial is the part on how to check the oil level as that is different from any biuke I know.

        Ditto on the "how to check the oil level"  The k1600 is different then all the other bikes on the market.

              Thanks Steve.med
              That's the sort of thing I was looking for. Not a "true" manual in the overall sense, but a quickie guide to all available functions.
              Tnx again,
