just bought a '91 K100rs Arizona bike. It's my first BMW Motorad. 23,000 miles.:pirat:
I'm replacing lots of rubber like intake bushings, fork seals, had the seat cut down a bit and reuphostered for a 5'3" guy.
Did own, with my wife a '98 Z3 Roadster 2.8, the wide one, for 15 years.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the K.

The Z3 has two extra wheels I think........much better to have two wheels each. That RS sounds nice too

If you want a little more height you can also pull the stanchions up a bit, I think its about 10-15mm. Stock rear tyre is a 130/90 but someuse 130/80 and together you have about another 10mm drop in height. You may not know there is a low seat option for the K...I think it will work for your RS.

As far as technical goes don't be afraid to ask questions, someone will have answers.

A -91 RS using 160/60 as standard dimension.............

About the OEM low seat, be shure that you get all the doodads needed for the mounting....
if you go down that road.

Thanks Inge.....right as usual. You must come over here for some Guinness some time, before the visitors from Australia take it all.

160/60 is a lower tyre too.

Is the low seat accessory set up the same for the later 8 valve K75/K100RT/LT and the 16 valve RS?

Yes, 9mm since the -91RS have a 18 inch rim.

Don't see any reason that it should be different, exept the tank cushion on 75/100's since they have different tanks.

Welcome Flyrite,
If your K-bike has lived in Arizona, you may well find yourself ahead of the game. The game being, of course, assuring all the electric gremlins are kept at bay Wink A bike from a dry climate is to be valued!

Thank's for the lowering tips Olaf, Inge K. Didn't think about those things to lower a bike. It's great we can speak a common language (english) I love Guinness!!!!!
Already replaced the ignition switch, it was disentigrating and ready to drop out of the lock portion. The coolant reserve tank rotted at the level indicator after doin some bike scrubbin, hope the water pump isn't eaten up. I see a drop of coolant coming from that front weep hole. I'm going to watch it. I ordered new seals and "o' rings/for the pump so far.
Battery $203.00 from the dealer. After I bought it I found I could order one from a "O Rilley's' auto parts store for 150.00. kind of their brand.

I buy most of my BMW specific parts from Motobins in UK and from what I hear Max BMW in US is about as good as they get for price there.
