    I will be talking with Mr. Ted as I am going to need some fund raising activities to further accessorize this new acquisition, e.g. heated grips, bar risers, mud flap extenders, to name but a few.

    Future Items for sale

    Where do I post parts for sale?

    I think there is a restriction on posting or advertising items on DIY dedicated threads; wouldn't want to get on the moderators' bad side.

    Here's the Barbacks that you want. They are specifically made for early K-bikes. They have the mount for the dash pad. Since your bike is a later model S (built after 9/91), you will NOT need the different brake hose (even though it says you do).

    So who is the actual manufacturer for these Barbacks?

    A&S has them specifically made for early Ks by a local machine shop.

    I haven't seen any other brand that fits perfectly AND has the threaded bosses for the dash pad.

    93 k75s barbacks

    Well then there is a price to pay for a well designed and properly fitting aftermarket accessory. Thanks, that's all I needed to convince me. I just thought they were on the slightly pricey side.

    If Ted "changes his mind" kindly let me know. I'll happily take his place as rightful owner of so called "bulb kit."

    Just called A&S for a shipping charge estimate to Montreal, Canada (while watching the Canadiens leading the Bruins) and they're going to charge me $30 bucks for shipping.

    Man o man, that's a lot of money for shipping. I need a friend on the border in Vermont or New York.

    93 k75s seat change - part remaining

    So I completed the switch from my low seat to the normal height seat on my 93 K75S. I have a couple of parts left which the former owner had tossed into the bag with the other parts when he originally converted the bike to the lower seat version.

    Now, I am wondering where these parts actually fit. Here is a picture of the little critters. Thanks again for your assistance.

    The strap is a reusable wire tie for tying wires and cables to the frame. Mostly used under the gas tank.

    The plastic cap is a cover for the nuts on the bottom of your mirrors or for the nuts inside the tail section on the floor of the trunk so that stuff in the trunk doesn't get scraped.
