That's a nice looking bike there. I noticed in one of the piccies you have the cooling fan mounted on a 2-core rad. Is that what you are running in the bike? I'd give anything to find a good 3-core for my K100RS. I'll see a unicorn first!

Looks the part and should have the legendary K reliability all that's left is bringing home the bacon and as I know all to well that's the hard part.
All the best with your endeavor.

The silly "Air filter" will choke the engine when revving up.
The genuine element is perfect and absolutely not restrictive, why did you replace it by a smaller one? Consider that you need the same surface of filter once unfold.

Same thing about the exhaust; absorption exhaust give a loss of power at low and middle rpm, for maybe a 1 HP gain at the red line. A good choice to make noise, not to make podiums.
