Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of BMW K1300GT:
- The fuel economy (fuel consumption) shows either how much fuel the motorcycle is consuming per 100 kilometers or haw many miles you can ride it with a single gallon of fuel. In the average case BMW K1300GT will burn 6.20 liters on every 100km of your trip. That is based on the technical specifications of the motorcycle and may vary depending on several factors as style of riding, temperature, road condition etc. As per the MPG number it will run for 37.9 miles while burning one gallon of fuel. Taken into consideration that it has a 19.0 liters (or 5 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that BMW K1300GT can run 306 kilometers or 190 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 1298 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. The more cubic centimeters the displacement volume the more power the engine generates. The displacement is commonly specified in cc (cubic centimeters) or liters and based on the BMW K1300GT specifications its engine displacement is 1298 cubic centimeters.
- 158 mm or 6.2 inches ground clearance - this is the distance between the ground surface and the lowest part of K1300GT not counting the tyres of course as they are meant to be in contact with the ground. Usually off-road bikes have higher ground clearance while sport bikes have lower ground clearance.BMW K1300GT bore and stroke diagram
- 80x64.3 bore and stroke - bore is indeed the size of the piston presented by its diameter and stroke is the depth of the piston measured from top to bottom. The stroke value actually represents the distance that the piston undergo in one stroke. The technical specification of BMW K1300GT shows that its bore and stroke measures are 80 mm and 64.3 mm. If bore is bigger than stroke as it is with this BMW engine then we say that K1300GT has a short stroke engine.
- 13:1 compression ratio is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of gas in the cylinder when the piston is at the lowest point it is ever gonna go down and the volume of gas when the piston is at its highest point. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Shaft final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. Each of them has proved to be a successful technology for the years it has been used by bike manufacturers. The final drive of BMW K1300GT 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. There are some down points though - they are expensive and heavier than the other two final drive options. Another disadvantage is the lost of power, being it minimum, caused by the moving gears inside them.
- Liquid cooling system: motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled and they both have their advantages. 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.How to replace the BMW K1300GT turn signals
- If you decided to fix the turn signals of your BMW K1300GT yourself there is nothing to worry about as that is indeed an easy DIY task. Reconnecting the motorcycle turn signals cables would not be a problem as these wires are generally color coded. It could be as simple as disconnecting both the male and female ends if box connection is used. After the new BMW K1300GT turn signals are placed on make sure they are connected to the right slots as previously marked.Picture of BMW K1300GT cover
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the BMW K1300GT are important when choosing one. 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.
