Greetings Everyone,

I recently purchased a 1987 K100RS and I'm glad to finally become a member of this wonderful community.

Best regards!

Hi Al welKome to the forum. That is an 87 Motosport and one of 700 made  and probably fewer than 100 left on the road so don't go messing with it as it will hold value better than the average brick, not that that is saying a hell of a lot.

Thanks RicK!  I'm still a neophyte with the K models, so would you mind sharing how you were able to determine from the picture that it's a Motosport model?

The Motosport stripes just below the mirror. If you go to Two Wheels Better's thread he can tell you all about it if you give him the VIN.

Nice to see another Motosport Al. Mine is '86 (pictured below). I notice there is a little beastie of sorts (?) attached to the frame below the side cover on your bike. Umm.. what is it?

Hi Ben,

It's a nitrogen spring preload canister, which I have now removed to install the OEM spring.
