Hi Folks,
Whilst browsing the web I came across an interesting company http://www.motoelekt.com who have some really neat bits of kit for BMW bikes.

First off I bought one of their LED Work Lights http://www.motoelekt.com/LEDwork.htm I think that this is a very well put together work light with a switch to turn the light on and off. The light puts out lots of LED bright white light EXCELLENT for motorcycle camping or dare I say it a breakdown :-( and it comes in a very sturdy pouch that fits in the K Bike tail stowage very neatly.

The next items I bought were Indi-Glo fuses which have an LED across the fusible element so when it blows it glows a really neat idea as the LED does not consume enough to be a hazard where there could be a short circuit downstream of the fault but how neat to just look at the fuse box and KNOW all fuses are intact because none of them are lit up. http://www.motoelekt.com/new.htm

The last item I bought was the really well designed battery vent catch bottle http://www.motoelekt.com/chassis.htm one of the problems with my K-Bike battery is it has a non BMW battery with a non standard vent hose which is connected to a long pipe which ends under the bike. Very rarely enough vapour coalesces with an acidic nature for a drip to fly off and land on the bike creating a small corrosion spot. No longer the little catch bottle which has a curved in side to mount cunningly on the frame tube will stop that.

Lastly they have some very good looking replacement K Bike lead sets which are WAAAY les expensive than the official ones and they look OK. I did not get a set as mine are fine but if I wanted new these would be the ones I would get.

The owner of the company is really helpful and easy to deal with and is quite happy to ship around the world.

I note for older BMW bikes with only half the correct number of cylinders :-) that he has some very neat electrical bits for charging, ignition and lighting.

Regards,
K-BIKE
