Welkom Ian.

An excellent choice in the 75S. Perhaps a photo sometime?

Dave.

I hope you have a red K75S. (They're the fastest.)

WelKome!

In the light spectrum due to it's shorter wave-length.

Noice! That blue colour was always one of my favourites. How do you like those (EBC or Spiegler-modified?) floating discs so far?

I've a hankering to fit 38mm K1200RS throttle bodies, collector & slip-on exhaust, Paralever swingarm/gearbox and later wheels/brakes onto a bare bones K75. I love the sweet purr of the three zylinder engine and feel it would really enter into a new realm with later suspension and brakes. Of course, I'll find one that's struggling to survive so as not to undress a perfectly running model...

I can't compare it to anything. Came with the bike, Got it last year or so. I'm working on getting the Spiegler steel lines on the front, got them on the back. The delay was I got the wrong front brake lines. Spiegler made it right and noted some of the lines are different. Looks like I need to pull the ignition module to get a wrench around that nut in there. Next; fork oil change.


New fuel lines, fuel and air filter
Oil changes, rear diff, xmission, filter.
Plugs
Gaskets and rubber bits.
Spline lube
HyperLites
New aeroscreen (Directs wind right in my face).
New Lastertecs.
New grips.
Rebuilt rear master cylinder.
Rebuilt starter

It's got the bar backs on it already and a Worx rear shock.

I recently installed some new front EBC floaters on my K100 and they don't seem to grab as well as the factory rotors. To be fair though I did not replace the pads which I probably should've.

That looks like a darker blue than mine. Nice bike!

FYI: There should be a sticker under the seat with a 3 digit BMW paint code if you want to find out the name of the color.
