Picked up a 87 K-100RS in San Diego last summer while I was living in San Francisco. Have moved back to Toronto now for good and bike is sitting at the border in Buffalo at a friend's place about to be exported and imported to Canada next week. Just in time to store it for the winter...

Bike is in good condition, I did a few things when i got it last year:
- new tires
- new clutch cable
- motor oil oring replacement - had a small leak

Has 2 issues would like to work on this year over winter:
- mirror on right side keeps falling off. Looks like the strange looking fastener 3-point locker is expanded and won't hold it in place on the little ball mount. Tried tightening the mount on the mirror but looks like it's lost it's strenght and I'll likely need a new complete mirror unit
- speedometer sometimes will drop to 0 while riding and not function for a minute, then it starts to work fine and won't do it again for a long while

welcome aboard

the mirror fastening clips can be replaced with new

often the speedo sensor connection under rhs sidecover can be corroded  in addition to wear of the instruments connector  and other little things inside the instruments ...I guess its galvanic corrosion issue   good luck
 lots of entrys to that fix throughout the forum   use the search feature found on the "portal page "

cheers

try a bmw dealer , bobs bmw in the states etc or other suppliers ,  they aren't expensive

or

out here we get a lot of stuff from either motorworks   or motobins in the uk  freight extra of course  so best to order with a number of parts to share out the cost

Welcome back to Canada.
I too would recommend checking the connection behind the right side cover. It was either that or removing and cleaning the hall effect sensor that seems to have cured mine.

For parts Motobins out of the UK seems to be the best for me and shipping is usually cheaper and faster then out of the US these days. The Pound and the Euro also seem to be a more attractive rate at the moment,
