Hi Everyone - 

I've recently acquired a '93 K75 with 13K miles. It needs a bit of deferred maintenance, the previous owner put 2500 miles on it in 10 years. The tires are 16 years old but it seems everything else is original. Needs a few more rubber pieces here and there. I've had many air cooled bikes and a few K100's, this is my first K75. 

I'm looking for a set of 'C' handlebars, a seat lock, and the 22 liter top case mount plate.

Does anyone know if they make radial tires for the  'Y' spoke wheels?
Does anyone have a recommendation for a throttle body/carb. balancing tool? The ones on Amazon get some pretty bad reviews.

Carbtune Pro (what I use) gets a 4.6 on Amazon.  Since it's only three cylinders a TwinMax will work on a K75 pretty well. (And your R bikes.)

Note that you can also buy direct with US shipping from the UK.  (Although the pound had a bit of a surge today based on election results.)

Welcome!!!  No need for expensive carb balancing machinery.  I've been using a couple bottles with some tubing and ATF for about five years now with excellent results.  Total coat was under $20, and I got to drink two bottles of overpriced iced tea.New Member from NC USA Thrott11

The surrounding enclosure isn't necessary.  It was the result of the intersection of some scrap wood and a couple bottles of malt beverage on a very boring winter evening.
