I think it's universal that the K, in today's world, has found it's place as one of the best utility and most reliable motorcycles ever built. Few appreciated or praised it's attributes 25 years ago. This thread has attempted to highlight the K for it's unique beauty and distinctive character. We all agree, it's a great motorcycle.

Took my recently acquired $500 93 K1100RS on the Bainbridge ferry on Tuesday. There were a couple of other classic Ks on the boat.

Yeehaw...

I am a somewhat regretful ex-owner of two K75S and having once ridden a K100 I have a question about the K1100RS 4 valve. The 75's; ultra smooth. The K100 not smooth, very buzzy/viby at 55-75 mph. however it smoothed out nicely at take your license away speeds. How would the the 1100 4 valve compare between the two? Not interested in the k1200/1300 engine/bike. It seems if the 1100 was smooth it would be an awesome tour sport bike.

Having owned a few four cylinder K's (including one 16v) and having ridden both 8v K100's and 16v K1100's at work, I'd say that some are better than others.

There's an opinion that it depends on how they are treated when new. I'm not certain. I am certain that I've ridden smooth 4 cylinder K's and some that were not (discounting the fact that the 1100's had extra damping in the footpeg mountings and handlebars in an attempt to isolate some vibration).

My experience is that K75's are smooth by design and four cylinder models, if smooth, by something else.

Having said all that, I've never ridden a K whose vibes were anything more than mildly intrusive. I've either been lucky or I'm an insensitive bastard.

The key to a smooth K1100 (or any K) is keeping the throttle bodies synched and some fairly fresh spark plugs.

As they are getting on in years, some Ks will develop air leaks in the boots between the throttle bodies and the cylinder head. If you have air leaks then you'll never be able to get one properly synched and as smooth as it could be. Those boots are fairly easy to replace though.

That said, a 4 cyl K will never be as smooth as the well-balanced K75 triple.

I do back to back 12+ hour days on 4 valve Ks and vibes are not an issue on a properly tuned K. I've had a total of 7 four valve Ks (still own four of those) and have been able to get/keep all of them running smoothly.

(Note that I also have a K75 because it's smoother and lighter.)

I put 25k miles on mine in 2 years and only washed it when it rained!

I love all these heavily modified Ks. Makes me wish I still had mine and the ability to do something so cool with it.

The clutch. He had it somewhat apart and from the way the wiring was I think he started to have a go at it a couple of years ago,gave up and then tried to put it back together not really knowing what he was doing because a bunch of the wiring was somewhat random.

It's also got that chopped RS fairing with some sort of custom windscreen.

I found it on Craig's List about two hours after he listed it and called him right up at noon on Friday. He told me he was showing it the next morning. I asked him enough questions to determine it was worth that as a parts bike worst case and told him I'd be at his door ASAP with $500 cash to trade for the (non-salvage) title.

In speaking with him I learned that he really wanted a Can-Am but the fiance said you've go to dump the RS first. He explained the price to me: "I want to make sure that whoever gets it knows they're getting their money's worth, even as a parts bike." When I showed up with a trailer to pick it up Saturday morning he and his gal said they'd had 25-30 calls on it already.

I spent a lot time giving it a new clutch, fork seals, new rubber, a thorough once-over and did a ton of mods to it while I was at it. Fortunately the ABS brain only required a single reset.

My original plan was to flip it but I could tell working on it that it had been well-maintained and it kind of grew on me so I decided to keep it for a while.

The best part of that price was that the title transfer and first year registration only cost me $128.

I will have the pleasure of owning a Larry bike with Duck, just across the bridge, showing me how to wrench on her while suggesting repainting with Rhino Liner. It's a freakishly complex world...... but I like it.

Just got word, Larry has just returned from successful overseas trip.....final stage of build is on

Picked up a used Yoshi Pipe and cut it down... Bolted it to the bike and made a mid pipe out of 1 1/2 muffler pipe.

And of course some muffler wrap....




Crappy picture but I took the luggage rack off today and hit it with some paint stripper ... Sanded the remainder... (crappy picture)


I may paint it a different color or leave it aluminum I havent decided yet... But for now I think it looks pretty cool polished..

No offense GH, but I just do not understand unfunctionalizing a bike. I kinda get the rat thing, though it isn't for me, but why take a functional bike and make it less so? Example, some of those seats look like nothing short of torture devices if used for more than 10 minutes at a time.

Don't get me wrong, I really love customs, but some of what you are posting looks like a serious amount of effort in making a bike as ugly as possible!

Paint bucket for the headlight shell wins the rat-award. Previous to this was the bike that had a plastic bag held on with a rubber band over the headlight shell. In San Francisco there used to be a yearly rat bike show, with awards, but I don't know if it exists anymore

These are pretty good: http://www.realmengineering.com/page15.html

If you order from them be sure to tell them what your normal riding load will be (rider/passenger/luggage)so they spring it properly. Otherwise it'll be spring for 2-up fully loaded.


More expensive but very good: http://www.worksperformance.com/html/bmw.html

Ironic coming from you. You've posted the most creative, outside the box Ks and 3 holes have thrown you..........

My guess he was just testing a new hole drill set he got as a gift....shame he didn't line those holes up before drilling. Part of the creativity I suspect.

They are "speed holes", they make it go faster.

here's a nice candidate on Ebay, minus the lowers...which i prefer:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/?cmd=...AMESINDXX%3AIT

This eBay K is in my the hood. Must resist though. Duck has sent a few my way but
...can't do it. Larry is hopefully enjoying some quality time with family and getting back to it. Not sure what the final touches might be, but sure thing .....I won't have anything to worry about. Should be a typical SpecialK...Over the Top.

Two grand is way too much for that bike. No fairing lowers, no battery covers and missing the battery hold-downs = rat bike.

JMHO.

It does have "tires pressurized" though.

When I went to look at my '86 K75C I was a little disappointed it was Black. But since then the black has grown on me and looking at all the colors I believe this is my favorite of all to replace the black - at least in photos.

At first looks this looks like two GS's but looking closer the rear one looks like an 80s K100

I agree; sure don't mind seeing these again...and again. Nice to be reminded of what's possible---with a bit of modification these bricks become timeless!

Found it....but your going to need a little assistance with translation. Maybe we can get a little help from one of the inmates. Awesome bikes.

http://www.schoenwetterfahrer.de/bmw_k100.htm

Just a update on the SpecialK build. Larry is tightning things up. Is going to get some oil in her tomorrow and get those new gaskets all broken in. He's gone stealth on me concerning details. He appreciates the calm approach to the build (I have no idea what he's talking about)
I have both a set of OEM city bags with kit and a new HB rack kit for top case and saddles for another option. We'll decide what's best based on final details and sell or reuse the rest. Custom headlight/guage set up is a peice of art. All I can say is I'm very happy Larry is back doing what he loves with such integrity. He's threaten to buy it back from me but I'm sure he'll be happy to open up space for the next build.
