    87 K75S radiator fan

    The Winter maintenance on my K75S has been like any project I've done on my home; starting a single simple job grows into multiple jobs of increasing difficulty and cost.

    The quick answer is it won't be very stable. I do have one I used for a previous bike and with wood blocks it can be used for some tasks like lifting the front wheel to remove it. If I didn't already...

    I've had that problem with my warning light staying on when all the bulbs appeared to be good but I kept overlooking the license plate bulb :doh. Once that was replaced everything was fine.
  9. Rear brake reservoir

    Lee or Paul

    I have read that the original rectangular rear reservoir is subject to deterioration & cracking but as a replacement is there any advantage of one vs the other?

    I like the results of your panectomy, (the whole bike too). Got me to thinking about doing something with mine. While I don't mind the appearance of the pan it's kind of a PITA to reinstall after an...

    K75S vs K1100RS

    Would you sell a K75S to get a K1100RS?

    I recently had a test ride on a K1100RS, what a ride! Huge grin factor. Lots of power available any time, just twist.
