Hi All,

I'm after an original Rider's Handbook (AUS Spec) which covers the early (1983 - 1988) K100, K100RS and K100 RT. These books are usually 104 pages long, and have a red front cover depicting the right side of a red petrol tank, and a back cover which depicts the rear 70% of a red petrol tank along with the uppermost portion of the seat. I'm also looking for any other documentation that might have come with these bikes.

Any assistance gratefully welcomed.

Alex.

Hi Olaf, a PDF would be a great start but I'm actually looking for a printed copy for the bike I'm currently restoring.

Give the The BM Shop a call. See the Paris Dakar bike on the Home page? I had me one of them! Marvellous bike!

You may be able to jag a reprinted copy of the Handbook.

Also, check ebay as well.

Anyone have any luck finding a hard copy of the Rider's Manual? I'm still interested in purchasing or trading for one.

Hi Alexander. You could try Motorworks here in the UK. I got an original K100/K1 riders manual from them. Here is the link, these do everything BMW

Hi Alex, are you after the little operators manual, that goes under the seat?

I've got an '88 RT and I've got the manual. I'm a printer so I should be able to knock you up a top notch copy ( i wont cut in the tabbed sections), if you can wait a week or so?

let me know if thats what you're after and when its done I'll whack it in the post to you.



cheers Andyb

Does yours have a print date? Perhaps a year it was issued?

Been trying to think (it's difficult sometimes) when that cover came out, it may have been at the release of the 4v RS in 89. My 90 is like that and a 93 K75 is the same but with a 75 engine.

That would indicate April 1987 print date. I think they must have changed the cover and updated some of Tue contents around that time.

Hi Alex, yeah I rekon that's probably right. Let me know if you still want one.

Another option also may be to give Disc. Motorcycle Wreckers in Coburg a call.....they may well have one. Ph: 03 93504417
