Hi Thumper, i have some pics here for you of what i was talking about. Not the best pics but gives you the idea.




I have seen on here somewhere a pic of someone elses K done like this.
Sorry bout the pics but i was still recovering from dropping a screw down the injector hole.

Now Blakey you'll just have to keep an open mind on the exhaust side of things.

Will you be bolting those to the ends of the carburetors you fit after you remove the stock fuel injection?

Going to be putting them on to the side of the air box. I will be keeping stock fueling for the minute
The plan was to remove the air tube and run the stack there...But one would look crap so am bolting all four on (Three are just for looks) shhhhh

LOVE this bike, great job! I'm building a K75.  You obviously have way more experience than I do - how did you solve the electrical issues caused by removing the stock instrument panel?  I get no response at all electrically, anywhere.

Never had any issue removing stock clocks
All wiring is hid in side headlight

Have you checked the fuse box?

Am about to use k-75 wheels in my k100

1) Did you mount the side stand on the opposite side? Very cool.  Never understood why BMW engineers would want this bike to lean over with the crankcase dripping into the heads...

2) I cant start my bike, it seems, without the instrument panel.  And I have no clutch cable at the moment so I hope that is the extent of the issue.  (Apparently not having the clocks there are required connections in there for gear indicator, etc)

Have you pulled the clutch wire out?
If yes then put it back in! If not then trace the wire for any breaks

Never had any props starting mine with out clocks tho

Yes I've used honda vtr firestorm stand (gives it better lean stance also)

The clutch cable broke, so at the moment there is no cable at all.  I didn't think this would matter as I can still put the bike in neutral and it would start (my last K bike would)

I just made in introductory thread, there I described how this bike came with an alarm system which I quickly hacked up and tossed - but maybe I cut something I shouldn't have...

You can't just unplug most alarm systems as they usually have an immobilizer fitted and if you just remove that relay there is no chance of it starting. It would probably the live wire to the ICU from the ignition switch.
