    The early hard-sided filter was very difficult to R&R. Later ones have a shorter lip on the left side. Once the clips have been popped off the filter slides in fairly easily.

    You could add a rear disc brake to an R80 as long as the mie is pre-monolever. Most people have found that the rear disc doesn't work as well as the drum.

    The improved control unit has the numbers 166 at the end of its label.

    If you start the bike and leave the throttle alone for a few seconds, will it continue to run, or does it stall?

    That port is as it left the factory. BMW was still using it for a check valve. The tank will work on a K1, but not a K1100RS.

    I'm a bit late, but the K1's throttle tube is very different than the K75. You can change the grips-even on heated grips-with some careful work.

    Good call. That's a K100 or K1100 tank. The only K75 it will fit is the K75RT.
