    Mac,
    To answer your original question, Yes, I've used the bumper paint on smooth, "K-bike" type bags. It worked great.
    As mentioned, clean them very well, then clean them again. I've used a paint...
  2. Race removal

    I've read, the ticket to remove the race only is to cut with a Dremel as far through the race as possible, without hitting the stem.
    Then use a chisel at a angle to give the cut a sharp rap, and...

    K75/ k100

    I've had 3 K75's, two S's and a RT. My next door neighbor and riding buddy has had a equal number of K100's which I have ridden many times.

    Not that I've ridden a bazillion bikes but the K75 is...

    Now don't I feel silly. I'm on my 3rd K75 and I never noticed a damping adjustment screw.
    I'm looking the moment I get home from work.

    NC Stephen,
    I did replace the tires as soon as I got the bike about 2 years ago. Does anyone have any experience with the Bridgestone "Battle Axe" as far as their propensity to induce any head shake...
  6. K75S Head Shake/ Fork Wobble

    This issue described at the beginning of this thread was, "front of the bike starts to float back and forth".

    What I am experiencing I would definitely call a "fork wobble" or what I have heard...

    By the way, I did try spacing the S w/s out as described in the first post, and in my case, [C bars, and being 5'6"] It seemed to just move the buffeting, but did not really eliminate it.

    A few years ago, I made myself just nuts with windshield height and buffetting issues.

    K75S Loose Headlamp

    Good afternoon,

    I managed to snag a very low miles K75S last year for a amazing price. Did all the fluid changes, tires, etc... and has been as nice as I remembered from my prior "S".

    Jon-Lars,

    I first thought they were Voodoo, but I've now been using them for 5-6 years in a number of bikes, tubed and tubeless.

    The advantage I see is:

    If it were me, and if the R90 is nice, I think I would get rid of the fairing and try the R90 like that for a bit.
    That way, you have the RT for cooler days [or months] and the R90 when it's hot,...

    That's what I was hoping to hear. I think I'll live with it until I catch up w/some other m/c related projects.

    L.B.,
    It is most noticable from 1200-1500 up to maybe 2500 rpm, then seems to stop almost abruptly, but I'd probably need to ride again to double check.

    I have a +3" clearview on my K75RT. Had it 3-4 years and no problems, but I've not had a Parabellum on this bike so I cannot offer a comparison. I recall the cost of the Clearview was reasonable.

    So my take is, if it's not the alt., it's probably the "anti-rattle spring", [great name] which is irritating, but won't leave me on the side of the road? Bike is at 44,000 by the way.

    L.B.,
    Maybe I'm being dense here, [a distinct possibility]. So the K75 does not have the cush drive at all, and so no rivets to come loose?
    I guess if this is so it's a bit of a relief, but now I...

    With that amount of pressure, I'm surprised one of the lines going to the filter didn't blow off or a hose split first.
    Guess hose clamps are wonderous things.
