Hi K Folk

New to owning a Brick...have admired them all my life and now finally have my hands on one after wasting all those years on sports bikes, twins...etc, etc. Live in Australia, just bought myself an old 1987 K100RT with the intention of stripping it down, but don't worry purists, that idea is fading every minute I ride the old girl in all her original glory.

Would still like to play around with one, one day...but just going to get to know my new girl for now...so any and all info is welcome...advice on builds, things a new K owner should know...I know there will be thread for everything, but I am a total BMW newb, so please help me get up to speed.

Thanks for accepting me and I hope to get to know you all

Brett

WelKome, brickhead.

On the portal page is a link saying "You just bought a used K100, so what now?"

Definitely worth a read. Where you go from there depends on time, skills and equipment. The main equipment not covered in many toolkits is Allen/hex keys, mostly 4,5,6 and 8mm. Socket and/or T handle versions are very useful.

My experience in this forum has been very rewarding in multiple ways, and I hope it is for you, too.

Bill

Welkom to the world of K bikes Brett. A fun place to be.

The next couple of gatherings for the Krew are Karuah in mid February and Jindabyne in mid March, both in NSW.

Dave.
