Hi Guys,

Can someone confirm that there is a difference between the K100 and K100RS radiator shroud and side covers?
Bought my RS as insurance write off and has no cowl

Cheers

Craig

The naked K100 radiator cover is very different from the RS one.

That looks like it comes from the basic bike, not the RS. Parts like that are very rare now and are getting very expensive.

Looking at Craig's avatar it looks like he has the RS fairing off it and therefore I can't see any reason that he could not fit the naked K type shroud and side pieces that were in the link. That was a very lucky buyer who got it for NZ$75.

I was lucky enough to get a full set in similar good condition from the USA that arrived today for US$95 and thought I did well.

As Duck said the shroud that would normally fit with the RS fairing is a different animal so if Craig was wanting to fit an RS fairing again he would have to search for the appropriate bit.

Cheers

H Gaz,

Only now realise the RS had the faring on which was never with the bike, as I said it was insurance write off... I do like the look of the naked K100 shroud and was hoping that it would fit, glad to hear that they may do so even if there is a bit of modifying to be done.

Missed auction by a couple of hours!!

Cheers

I've been after a radiator cowl set for my naked RT for some time now and while I was in Perth last May a guy I met gave me the wings. They aren't in great condition but they should scrub up ok.
I'm hoping you've still got that grill for me Gaz?? Cheers

Craig that looks an interesting bike you've got there. You have the later 3 spoke wheel on the front and RS belly pan - any chance of some photos from different angles around the bike?
That exhaust looks non standard also.

Cheers

Sure thing Gaz,

Had it for a couple of years,but circumstances prevented me from doing much with it - de-reg from insurance write off. Guy I bought from kept riding it and cops kept nabbing him, he didn't have time to sort out legally.
Not sure who built as it is, but not quite to my style. Its been fitted with one of those MX type headlight units. Exhaust is pretty good job, aftermarket and the pipe from four into one has been modified to take it, pretty loud and have had the decibel limit checked on it, its just on the limit....maybe too close for compliance!

Big trouble trying to get ABS to work. Even sent to Toshi, still can't get to work. Only managed once for two days after many, many resets, then stopped again. Have had the chassis checked by the engineer and singed off as straight (for a fee of course!) He said that if I remove the ABS he can also certify the job.. for another little fee!

Fancy doing the cafe bit to it (sorry purists), trying to source what I need before I start...got to hold myself back from tearing into it:)

Will sort some more pics out this weekend.

Comments\suggestions always welcome

Great forum!

Cheers
