    Can't find the 18" H

    Alternate method....no mud guard removal required

    1995 K75RT... I use the "lazy" way and put the center stand on a 2x8 board to raise the bike a little higher. It allows you to squeak the rear wheel off without bothering with the mud guard removal....

    Is this the same tank you had repainted in a much earlier post? If so, could the blockage have originated during the prep/paint process?

    When I got my bike, I wondered about the play in the side stand. I didn't bother measuring it, but it seemed like an inch at the end of the side stand, which would only accentuate how much the bike...

    K75RT works for me

    Purchased my 95 K75RT in late 2009 ;) Only bike I have had so I can't give comparisons to other models. Regarding the issue of excess heat, that was an issue for only about 7-10 days while putting...

    ...adding my 2 cents

    95 K75RT. Over 70 mph, I get 45 - 47 mpg. Under 65 mph, 48 - 50 mpg. Below 45 mph, usually gives 50 - 51 mpg. These results have been pretty consistent over 30,000 miles during the past two...
