Hi there, I just agreed to buy a 85 or maybe 86 model K100 and I'm wondering if some of you gurus can point me toward a good online refrence on this type bike.

TIA

Go to www.IBMWR.org look at the tech files, there are some specific upgrades fo '85 models, and alot of good tech stuff for all K's. Welcome to the Darkside

Ok, will do. Anybody here got some pictures or writeups about installing a good stereo system in a K bike? Should be plenty of room in that fairing. I'm using a Sony minidisc player on my current ride, a Kawasaki Concours, and it works good but I'm not crazy about using earphones. When I get the K100 I think something different is in order.

Randy,

Make a search on MP3 or sound systems or any of those terms and you'll find all kinds of stuff hidden in here. I think there have been a few discussions about that stuff.

You might want to start a thread in gear for the too. Folks will see a new subject and want to check it out.l

Congratulations! You'll really enjoy the K-100. It's a trouble free (mostly anyway) motorbike. All the power one needs,and handles superbly,as another has said,"Welcome to the dark side". Oh yea,lube that spline,and change out the fuel filter, maybe have the valves re- set,and that's about it. Zoom Zoom.:)
And use 20W-50 Royal Purple synthetic motor oil,there is none better.:thumb

you will hate that accursed thing. You will never enjoy it. As your friend, I would recommend you just sign the title over to me for free and never think of it again. No really, trust me.
