The project continues...
Found out why the handle bars were lop sided...
Handlebar risers & forks !! 20191012
Handlebar risers & forks !! 20191013

So I assume the smaller one is off a K75 and larger one  K100 ?
The rubber isolation mounts don;t look too worse for wear but the pair on the smaller riser's side were quite deformed..
The fasteners were pretty stiff and must have been made out of chocolate the way they were chewed up getting them removed...
Luckily I didn;t need any heat, just some brute force (spanners extending the allen key lengths)...

But as one fork is leaking I was going to replace the seals with the forks being removed whilst I sort out the head race bearings
Looking at the fork thread earlier, using heat to break the loctite and special tools to compress the fork caps, would it be better to get a shop to do it ?  Any specialists in the UK ?.

K75s don't have handlebar isolation mounts.  They are solidly mounted to the upper fork tree. (Because the motor runs so smoothly.)

If you want to extend the life of your seals pack heavy silicone grease between the seal and the dust cover. I change the grease every 12-24 months more often in dusty conditions. It wouldn't hurt to run a Seal Mate around the seal when changing the grease. My seals are now 20 years old.
Regards Martin.
