Hi, I am going to try out an RS fairing on my 86 K100RT.
Anyone done it? any pitfalls?
On potential I see is the speedo cluster, will it fit in the RS fairing with out changing the mount?

You'll need the bracket for the RS that attaches the cluster to the upper fork tree.

On the RT the cluster is fixed position. On the RS it moves with the handlebars.

Have you run the moto's identification number through a VIN checker to determine what you actually have? Yours seems like a hybrid already.

K100RT/LT's had clusters attached to the handlebars, K1100LT had fixed clusters.

I have 83 RS and 84RT. Cluster moves with handlebars on both BUT the mount plates differ and you may need one. I bought a cluster off an 84RS for my RT and it came with the mount plate. They were different  BUT they had the same part no cast into them. As I have both had a quick look and the angles seem different, RT one is at a higher angle. Clusters themselves are the same.

Hi, I received some fairings and parts ,so I've begun. 
 I found today that if a headlight bulb burns out on the road, it would be a bummer. 
very tough to get at.

What makes you think that?  It's really not all that hard.

The only problem I encountered when swapping over my globe on my 75s which probably has similar access was trying not to touch the bulb. Oil from your fingers will cause the globe to burn out prematurely I ended up using a pair of nitrile gloves.
Regards Martin.

I am thinking you have to take  a lot of the fairing trim off to get your hand in and access the bulb. 
 we put the bulb in as we slid the rs fairing back, seem like there is only 2" between the back of the bulb and the main fairing mount . so as I said I think it would be a struggle if you were on the road.


In other news , does anyone know what size connector is used for the light connection in the rs mirrors?
