Hi Everyone. I just purchased a 1991 BMW K1 with 7k miles in dark grey metallic. Rode from Atlanta area down to Lauderdale where I will store the bike. Couldn’t believe how much heat was coming out of the fairing. While I had read this I could believe it blistered my leg through my jeans while riding on the interstate!!! Lol. Figured I would see if anyone else had similar issues with this bike so here I am Smile I also have 3 R65’s a 1994 K1100RS (same color as K1) and a 08 K1200 S as far as bmws go.

Welcome! Post some photos of your fleet when you're able.

Go to the Tech pages in the site's Portal and look for the Heat Management document. It seems like a johnny blanket would help you, among other measures.

So still being run in?  I remember running mine in and the care I took with it.  

Currently mine is in the shed awaiting maintenance but it will one day be back on the road as it is such a fun bike to ride.  Over the years it has probably seen about half of Oz.
