Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of BMW K1200R Sport:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). In the specific case the fuel economy of BMW K1200R Sport allows you to ride 36.8 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 6.40 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. If we know that BMW K1200R Sport has a fuel tank capacity of 19.0 liters and its fuel economy is 36.8mpg (based on the technical specifications data above) then we can calculate the run it can achieve with a topped up tank and it is 184 miles.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 1157 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. As per the specification table here the displacement volume of the BMW K1200R Sport engine is 1157 cc. It is specified in cubic centimeters (cc) or liters.
- 180 mm ground clearance - this can be defined as the distance between the lowest point of the K1200R Sport's chassis and the level ground surface below it. Variations in ground clearance measures represent a trade-off between practicality and handling of a bike.Bore and stroke of BMW K1200R Sport engine
- Bore and stroke 79x59 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. According to the technical specifications of BMW K1200R Sport its bore is 79 mm and the stroke is 59 mm. If bore is bigger than stroke as it is with this BMW engine then we say that K1200R Sport has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 13:1 of a motorcycle engine is the ratio of the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of the stoke and its volume when the piston is at the top of the stroke. This is actually the relation between the biggest and the smallest capacity of the combustion chamber. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
- Shaft final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of BMW K1200R Sport is shaft.
shaft final drive of  motorcycleShaft drives are well know from their use in automobiles. The same conception applies when they are used on motorcycles - clean look, smooth movement and minimum maintenance required. Shaft drives on the other hand make the bike more expensive and a bit heavier. If we need to go in details then it should be mentioned that a small amount of power is lost with them because of the moving gears involved.
- Liquid cooling: the constant cooling of the motorcycle engine is mandatory for its efficiency and durability. Some of the main advantages of the liquid cooled motorcycles are their better performance in high traffic and speeding and that generally their engines are deigned with higher horsepower.Turn signals of BMW K1200R Sport
- You can easily find out how to replace the BMW K1200R Sport turn signals and quickly do it yourself. Disconnecting the wires of the motorcycle turn signals is not a hassle as usually they are color coded. After locating the bolts that hold them in position you will have to remove them. There should not be any confusion connecting the new BMW K1200R Sport turn signals after they are placed since the wires have been properly marked.UV and dust protection cover for BMW K1200R Sport
When choosing a motorcycle cover the dimensions of the BMW K1200R Sport should be taken into consideration. Some aftermarket accessories can change the overall dimensions of the bike. A larger cover will be needed if the motorcycle has an additional backrest, sissy bar or panniers fitted.
