Howdy folks,

Like most people, I maintain/service my K100RS as it needs it. By this I mean the usual checks, fluid/filter changes etc. I've read of owners who say "I do all my own servicing apart from the fuel injection. That's best left to the dealer as they have the right equipment".

My 4v has done 58,000 miles, I've had it for just over 11 years and I've never had the FI looked at - and nor does my maintenance receipts show any record of it ever being done.

I cant say I can notice any problems with the way my bike runs apart from always needs a bit of choke on first start up (whatever time of year). Should I be looking at getting this 'checked over', or am I reading to much into it and maybe should just ride the thing?

Howdy,
You got the quarantine fever cause it certainly reads like it?

Unless you're planning on upgrading to the 4-hole fuel injector type, reading to much into it.
Ride on into the serene landscape...

Aah, more reassurance. Love it  cheers 

Cool mate. I wasn't sure if it was an 'interval' thing that I had neglected. Volador hit the nail on the head though. Too much sitting and reading Embarassed 

The speedo reset knob you sent me is working great by the way  Fuel Injection - Setting Up 112350

As long as you keep doing 5,000 miles per year, all you need is do is replace the fuel filter every other year and the fuel lines when they get hard.  The only thing that fuel injection really needs is to be used regularly so the fuel doesn't sit in the tank for more than a month.

The "choke" isn't a choke.  It's a throttle opening to provide a little more air/fuel mixture to help a cold engine to overcome the internal friction caused by cold oil.  Once the engine starts to run, the oil viscosity rapidly drops due to viscous shear so choke can be turned off.

Sounds like its running good.

As said, best left alone.

Don't go for the 4 hole injectors though, they run cleaner simply because they may be newer but they increase fuel consumption. If you do go at them make sure to have a 10 pack of O rings.
