Hi all,

new member saying 'hallo' from the Netherlands.

I got my K100 last year from my dad. 1984 K100 RS.
Although super comfortable, the looks of the original K100 bike didn;t really appeal to me. So I stripped it and changed it into this:



Next project is replacing the stock instrument cluster. I bought the cheap China gauge, which is causing some headaches, so hoping to find the million dollar 'why-is-it-not-working'-answer on these forums Smile

Who am I?

Welcome along MMo

Plenty of people hereabouts have exchanged the functional but clunky looking instrument cluster...and many have found problems with doing it!. Try typing your aftermarket speedo details into the search function on the forum page. The original cluster was designed to blend into the fairing - so no surprise that it looks wrong when you take all that cover away.

Hope your dad didn't mind you modifying his old bike! Looks sleek but a lot less comfortable and you've found an interesting way to "upgrade" the luggage.

Enjoy
