Getting going on upgrading my 94 K75S and just found out the two downtubes each have a different purpose with one sucking and the other blowing so to speak, one downtube does the compression damping while the other does the rebound damping. Have had good results with a DR650 in the past (way different bike but...) and was wondering if anyone hear has experience with this.

I would have thought that having compression damping on one side and rebound damping on the other would give very strange handling. I then had my eyes opened when I bought my new Ducati Supersport last year, it is exactly like that, and a very sweet handling bike it is too.

I've got a set of White Power (still not sure about that name) forks on the latest project bike - comp on on leg and rebound on t'other.

You can upgrade both the suspension and brakes if you swap in a complete K1100 front end. I've done it to several K75s. You need to do the ENTIRE front end though.

If you want to keep the ABS it becomes a bit more complicated though.

Don't think I am up to swapping out the entire front end, thinking new springs and emulators will be more then enough for me skill level, looking at Beemer Boneyard the have nothing right now but the prices for what they have look reasonable.

chris846 White Power is a proper brand name I believe (don't tell any SJWs). What exactly does the bike have? WP valving/springs?
