    No way I'm up for converting this bike to ABS - thanks for your replies, guys! She's such a clean K75s and I'd have a hard time parting with her right now.

    If you can get the motor to turn over with some penetrating oil, that would be great before removing engine from the frame. 41K on that engine is mid-time - my R60/5 has about 80k and I believe it's...

    Thanks for your replies - the big advantage to the K75 is it's manageable, weight-wise - I believe the RT sits lower to the ground than a new K bike - I love the K1200GT but also don't want to be...

    My concern is being in timbuktu and having the starter relay activate out of the blue. As long as battery is charged, will the relay remain open or is there now the potential for it to get stuck?
