Hello to everybody here on the forum

I'am Michael (called short Mich) , living in Leuven, an old university town, about 33 km beside our capital Brussels.

I own an 1986 - K75 S, beside an 1979- Yam XS650, an Suzuki DR 650, 2 vintage French Koehler-Escoffiers from 1934 (2 & 4 stroke, where
the 2stroke is near to the end of restoration and the 4stroke still remains in the barn exit condition), and  further some small stuff , like Puch , Mobylette, honda amigo, etc.

I started driving motorcycle in 1969, first with a BSA 350 , a BSA 650 and then a brand new Yam XS650 (XS2) , updated after some years to a Honda 750 4 cyl , changed then to an Suzuki GSX and restarted at least (after some years of non motordriving) with a K75s.
The best motorbike, for every day, with almost no servicing needs and over the years proved to be the cheapest in costs.  

I made some necessary changes to the bike, as better front brakes (she's equipped with the double pistons brakes from an K1100 RS, a
whitepower gas assisted suspension,(refurnished and adapted to the K75s , by a Whitepower specialist) , Led H4 light (6000/8000K) in the front light, a special fast and proper valve system to change the engine/gearbox oil, without having to screw/unscrew anything. etc

2 Years ago, my brother, driving in front of me, mesured the top speed of the K75s at 212 km/h on his car GPS. Not bad for 30 year old bike with only 75 Hp and 76.500 km on the counter.  (GPS mesures are almost exact)

Here I will finish. See you later

Mich

Welkom Mich, 

If I might add, an excellent choice in the K75S.  

The oil changing valve system sounds interesting and I am sure a few on the forum would love to see some photos sometime.  You would not be an engineer by chance?  

Cheers, Dave.
