Hello everyone, 
My name is Ben and I hail from NSW Central Coast. I had the good fortune to have custody  of a new K100 for 3 months when they were first released. The owner was having a knee replacement (joys of Rugby) and needed someone to look after the K. It was an easier ride than my 1974 Ducati 750 sport.  Long story short, I bought a 4/86 K100RS Motorsport in August this year with 45k km. and now on Club Rego. Injectors, fuel pump/filter/pressure regulator were replaced  by vendor. Just learning my way around the bike and have already come across some of the vagaries - sprag clutch issues and lights/blinkers not working (dirty starter motor brushes fixed yesterday ? weird - makes the simplicity of Ducati electrics look good). Have already found a wealth of information from forum members and hope to be able to contribute some of my own in the future.

Cheers Ben

Hi Ya Ben welKome to the Knuthaus. Good to see an RS being kept as an RS and not getting the treatment.

Minimum length of the brushes are 6mm.

{snort} No bloody chance. Ducati is EyeTaliAnn whereas BMW, even thought extremely illogical in places, is well put-togther.


I think.



I have reason to doubt that at times Shocked
