    I ran a Metzeler 880 front and a Michelin Macadam 50 rear. I found this the best tire combination in 37,000mi. of riding the '85 K100RT.
    The Macadam 50 front cups badly in 5,000mi.

    I put a Progressive #420 on my '85 K100RT and found it oversprung and underdamped. Also it is probably the best aftermarket shock for the price.

    Have you looked through the parts fiche at www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com ?
    I agree with Jon. If it's not dripping I would leave it alone. Unless you need a winter project??

    I like a firm ride on my '85 K100RT. I use 370cc.of 15wt. fork oil per leg. That's 10cc. over spec., but still allowable according to my Haynes manual.
