Considering switching from GSA to RT Camhead or Wethead - 11/11/17 12:09 PM

I am considering switching from a 2009 GSA to an R1200RT.

I have two bikes selected at this point. A 2012 Camhead and a 2014 Wethead. The mileage is 10K less on the camhead. The accessories are the same on both bikes. The wethead is 3K more. My last RT was a 2009 model.

I am leaning towards the low miles and the 2012. I am interested in any opinions.

Possible the Wethead has some warranty left? If so and you can extend it that’s a big plus. Might also want to check how the shock recall was addressed on it. All things equal the Wethead is a step up in performance but a really nice Camhead with good maintenance history is still an outstanding bike.

Thanks that is a very good suggestion. I just assumed the warranty was up.

Purchased my low miles 12RT used in late 2014. 11K miles later no real issues other than it seems to eat low beam headlight bulbs. Also, make sure the recall on the wonder wheel has been done.
