Hi,

I've just bought a 1986 K100RT. I've wanted one since they first came out in the 80s because my parents' neighbours flew out to Germany and collected theirs directly from the factory then rode in back. I think it must have been one of the first to arrive in the UK.

I rode mine home yesterday in grotty weather and loved it. It has a bit of vibration but rather more pleasing than worrying. Very Happy

Cheers

Si.

Morning from Dorset 177912 Si, sounds as if Christmas came early for you  Morning from Dorset 112350 The K 100s do have a bit of a vibration problem, but to be fair its not that bad, i find it more of a tingle than a discomfort.

Welcome!  As Arlina mentioned, a good tune up, checking valve clearance, new spark plugs and a throttle body balance will help as will good front rubber and a careful wheel balance job.  Checking the steering head bearings won't hurt either.
