Hi K Nuts,
            I am looking for some advice on the correct Bagster Tank Cover to buy for my 83 K 100 RS. In the catalogs, it appears to me that there is only one cover made for the early models and that is described as the K100 Basic. K100 RS is not listed specifically until the 1993 model. Was there a change in tank shape between 83 and 93 that would explain this? 

Because its quite expensive and the shipping to Oz is not cheap, i want to make sure I get the right cover first time. Has anyone had experience with Bagster tank cover for this model who could confirm that I am on the right/wrong track if I order the cover for the K100 Basic?
Cheers
Leon

The 93 was a K1100 and the clips attaching it to the lower rear of the tank are different ti make way for the different side covers that the K1100s had.
If it says K100 or K75 then it fits all K100s but the K100 only went to MY92 but definately not 93. Beware that there are many dealers that don't know the subtle differences beyween the K100 and K1100 and K75. Be wary of Safaricycle in US he wouldn't know shit from clay.

I use A bagster tank cover, and i do think its a Nice product, 
However, if you live in a hot climate you should take in to consideration that it traps A Lot of heat in the tank = boiling fuel.

I have a bagster tank cover and tank bag on my K100RS 84 model and it should fit all K100's as the tanks are all the same differing only in the electric connections for 84/85 are different as is the fitment to the bike...but the profile is the same. I am hoping it will fit the K1100 as well so will see soon.

See if you can get a second hand one they do come up every now and then....for example I have a bag and bagster cover from the RossKKo collection but have no idea what it fits.

Nope no numbers on it either. If you happen to be going near here you are welcome to try some on.

Cheers Klompy

Klompy Alex McCarthy was asking about a pair of rear police crash bars a while ago he would be delighted to see those.

Thanks everyone for your helpful feedback on bagster covers. I agree that the dealers probably don't know one model from the next. I am better informed now.

Klompy, I'm in Goulburn and might take you up on your offer to try on a cover. My K is not registered at the moment, so will have to get back to you on that one. A ride to Richmond and a squirt up the Putty Rd is an attractive idea once I do a few minor repairs and she is on club rego. I use the log book scheme.

By the way, have you had problems with the fuel in the tank overheating during summer? My friend Bill from Goulburn has commented that the tank on his K gets skin burning hot.

Cheers and thanks
LeonW
Very Happy

Not since I installed the fuel cooler.   Very Happy  Before that, an actual burn on a northern tablelands ride. 
How are the front brakes, Leon?

Very Happy Hi all !

I own(ed) a K100RT, build 1985. (Sold her last month.)
Bought me a Bagster cover and bag for that bike, many years ago. Last year a K1100LT 1992 joined the stable and the Bagster switched from the K100 to the K11; no problem at all !

Bagster makes quality covers, they protect your tank from getting scratches a.s.o. 
Also: the tank gets a more 'bulky' look due to the (subtle) kneepads that are stitched in the covers.

Fuel needed ? No problem. Unlock the rear clips of the bag and lift it in forward position. The tankcap now can be opened.

My opinion ? Get one a.s.a.p., you'll be satisfied !!

Greetings from the Netherlands ! cheers

Jos.
