Fred, sounds just like what happened to my starter at about the same mileage.
If so, all it needs is lubrication. My starter's been working fine for
probably 30k miles since I did it, so I musn't have screwed it up too much.

Clymer and Haynes say nothing about how to accomplish this, but I documented
my procedure and will send it to you off-list.

p.s. re: New info on R1200S, R1200GS Adventure, K1200GT, F800ST:

I see the R1200S features a "crankshaft running in anti-friction bearings"

ooooh aaaah this must be the 21st century  ;)

WTH is an "electronic immobiliser?" Sounds like a phaser set on stun.
