    I had a Fox on my one of my early K's, probably the '93 1100. It was not the remote reservoir as I recall, but could have been. The Wilbers I have on my K1200RS has the same idea with a Long hose. ...

    Seeing your photo and noticing you do not seem to have a Tele-Fix fork brace or similar, Lee's comment was exactly what I thought of. I had my '85 RS in for tires at the dealer, picked it up and...

    The debris does not look too bad, maybe a tad larger than I would prefer to see. If you have had this bike since new, how does this compare to your past 'collections'? Paul or Don may have a more...

    You note that the bike is new to you. Have you checked with the local dealer to determine if all the factory updates/bulletins/recalls were carried out? My understanding is that several early...

    Is it truely RPM related, only? Does it matter what gear? I would think I would pass through 4,000 rpm in many gears heading up to a 70 mph cruising speed, and this would be quite annoying and...

    My understanding is that YES, there is a threadlock, equal to Red as I recall. Heat, impact wrench, etc. And still some have ended up stripping and having to drill. Good luck.

    Just guessing here, that they feel it is easier or S.O.P to drain a unit before removing it. It is sealed and should be fine. I do not recall if there is an air vent atop it or not, but I do not...

    As I recall, the switch on my K12 actually has the 'accessory' position to the far left, but in no case should the Turn Signal be on at this time in a steady burn (if it is flashing, I assume you hit...

    As 98Lee says, '85's are all a little, or more likely a LOT, buzzy. Sort of the nature of the '85. Mine seemed to be one of the smoother ones and still it was quite buzzy compared to my '03 1100RS...
