Hi everyone....
Some of the SE Qld riders might remember me and my k100rs that I sold after back surgery a couple of years ago... well I missed that bike (and the back has healed) so today I bought a K1100LT Very Happy.

Unfortunately it looks like it needs a new clutch, so its gonna see some bench time, but at least it'll get a good once over before hitting the road..

I rode home today about 80km's and instantly felt very comfortable and relaxed with the the big k's familiar and predictable handling and power delivery, and as I was hoping, it seems the extra plushness in the rear shock and upright seating position will bee sore back friendly .... I think I'm going like this bike alot.

Anyway I'm sure I will have some questions regarding new clutches etc. in the very near future and hopefully catch up for a ride not too far away.....

it really is great to be a k rider once again.... here's a pic..... cheers Paul

Good man Paul,
Having just put my K1100 back on the road after a long winter and fixing the gearbox grub screw that had come adrift i can appreciate your clutch dilemma.
Before you rush into taking her apart , just make sure the adjustment has been done correctly
You need to get down under and make sure the clutch activation lever and cable slack is done correctly.
Might save you some time

Enjoy the ride, its rather nice :-)

Welcome back Paul,
Apparently, no surgeon will try a K-Pox surgery. Very Happy

K-Pox may go into remission but it's always there.

WelKome back.

Once you get your LT sorted you'll have a great bike.

WelKome back Paul glad to hear the back is good enough to ride again.
I don't think I realized how much I would miss riding until I found myself in that position with my back.

I can certainly relate to your story. I sold a K100RS, later realized how much I missed riding a K-bike, then bought a K1100LT. I'm really, really pleased with the machine cheers

Welcome back, you could try joining K Pox anonymous, or just admit your addiction and live with it.
Regards Martin.
