    Question hard cases

    I recently bought a 1988 K75S. Great motorcycle. I have a line on a pair of used hard cases for it, but I don't know for sure if they will fit my machine. They came off of a K-100. The photographs show the protrusion at the bottom front of each case that appears to fit into the mounting hole directly in front of the passenger footpeg. Can anyone say for certain that these cases will fit my K-75S? My motorcycle already has the hard plastic mounting rails. I just don't know enough about the cases themselves to spend the money through the mail. Is there a part number somewhere on the cases that will pin them down? Help!

    If I'm not mistaken, Kbike bags are Kbike bags for the first gen Kbikes.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Early K-bike bags are really tough to find for any kind of reasonable price- I tried for 3 years and never found any. If I were you I would snap them up- even if they don't fit I would bet that you can turn them around without losing any money besides maybe shipping costs.

    Why don't they make a Nerf Martini Glass?

    There is a lockable latch at the forward bottom part of each case. It locks into the hole on the plastic side rail. I have an 1989 k100lt. I believe that the side cases were the same. You might check with Bob's BMW in Maryland. They carry side cases for all years of 'K' bikes. There catalog is also a good source to have for p/n's..

    Good luck...Dave

    Yes they will fit

    The early K-bikes (K75, K100, K1100, all varieties) will all use the same cases. There were two styles of cases for these bikes. Both styles fit the same mounting hardware.
    2004 R1150RT 145,700 miles
    1991 K100LT 126,700 miles
    1982 R100RT 106,900 miles
    Total 379,300 BMW miles

    ackchooly, there are 3 variations:

    first flat latches with tiny, toy like keys

    second normal latches pointing inward

    third normal latches pointing outward

    The last two can be keyed the same as the ignition

    HTH!
