Gday family,

I have recently acquired a 1995 flying brick and look forward to learning as much as possible from everyone on here.
First thing to do is strip the thing back to motor and frame, redo the fork seals and rear shock.
I might put the old girl back together or just run it stripped down. Still undecided what direction I go.

If I do strip it down, Iíll be searching for advise on the wiring and instruments, so any links you already have saved for reference would be lovely, otherwise Iíll be using the search function.

Anyway,
Thanks for reading so far.

Mark

Yeah bud its my first Bimmer bike I've had so far. Always been a Jap bike guy, but had a soft spot for the R series.†
No way id be able to afford an R i wanted and the K has sentimental value being my mates old cop bike.

Hello and herzlich willKommen dabei from the Northern Tablelands in NSW. You'll find the K series to be a robust and reliable motorbicycle, providing much riding pleasure and capable of holding its own in much trendier and lauded company. study

Holmesy I've had Austrian, Czechoslovakian, Italian, Japanese, British and one German motorcycle. You couldn't pry me off it with a 10 foot crowbar. If treated right and serviced they are the most ultra reliable and bomb proof bike I've ever owned. They don't suffer sitting around they need to be ridden, most problems come down to sitting around in a shed and lack of maintenance. I've had mine twenty years and I will die with it.
Regards Martin.

Welcome from the Northern Hemisphere!† It's safe to say you now own one of the best machines that BMW ever made.

These machines are made to be used to travel long distances.† Why some owners modify them into something uncomfortable to go more than a few miles is beyond comprehension. ††

Going through the complete maintenance program on your bike is a great way to get familiar with it.† Once you get into it, you will find that they are fairly straightforward and not terribly difficult to work on.† While the operating system of the bike can be mysterious, many here have extensive experience and stand ready to help.† There is salso a plethora of information here ond at other K bike sites on the interweb.
