    Here's why I wish my K75 had sixth gear: cruising on the freeway at 72 MPH. The engine is perfectly happy at 5500 RPM for sure, but I'd prefer, say, 4500 RPM, where the engine still has plenty of...

    I took a look at pure-gas.org, and see that there is a BP on the corner of Bridge and Cedar in Chippewa Falls that (supposedly) sells pure premium, probably 91 octane, although the listing says 92.

    Folks recommend the BMW air filter because it has the groove that fits onto the airbox lip. Plus, it's designed to provide the correct air flow, I think the K&N will tend to provide more air. I got...

    Well, in fifth gear, you're not too far above the 6250 RPM torque peak at those speeds, so the bike is quite happy. Yeah, it gets noticeably louder at those speeds, but it's definitely built to ride...

    I bought my '91 no-ABS pre-catalytic converter K75RT on 5/30/08 with 65,000 miles on it for $3300 and it's been a total joy. Yes, I've done some upgrades and repairs - the rear drive gave out at...

    Yup, that's the big trick. :( I ended up crushing the black plastic ring on the water seal when I cranked down with the washers technique. I tried it anyway, leaks like a sieve (which was actually...

    Hiya folks. I need to rebuild my oil/water pump after discovering oil in the cooling system. Fortunately, it was a one-way leak, the engine oil is water-free.
