Hi all -

New member here, greetings from Edmonds, Washington, USA.

Although I'm new to this forum, I've been a K owner for many years. Started in 1992 with a 1990 K75s (much seller's remorse), followed by a 1996 K11RS (new son, no time to ride, so sold - more remorse).

I now have a 1985 K100RS which, unfortunately, is not currently running. I'm looking for a L-Jetronic fuel injection module and will be posting in the tech and parts areas of the forum.

I really like the old bricks and hope I can get my K100 back on the road again. Something about the uniqueness of these bikes works with me (when they work).

Hi Tony. WelKome to our Korner of the world. Sounds like you are a well seasoned K-biker. Pity you sold the K75.
I have an L-Jet for sale if you need it. Not sure what the postage from OZ to US would be but if you can't find anything local give me a PM. Unless its missing, its pretty rare that they malfunction. Put a post up in the 'Technical/Repair' forum.

Cheers

Thanks for the offer, I do want to try some troubleshooting first (when I can find the time).

Yes, when I sold the k75s I thought I wanted a bigger bike with more Hp (you know the saying, there is no replacement for displacement).
Little did I realize the good handling qualities of the 750 and that she really did all that I asked of her.
