My first thought is what for, the K does that already in the engine management. If you put the details of your bike on your profile that way we can make responses more specific to the year and model of your bike Very Happy

I know that K (mine is jetronic 1983) has a limit at 8650 rpm like any other. But on the net appeared device called Magnum which lift the blocade at 8650, so the engine get 20 percent more rpm. Anybody on the forum tried it?

Lifting the rev limit on a standard K100 won't serve any really productive purpose as the HP and Torque are on the way down from 7000rpm anyway. It may rev higher but it would be far better to kick it up another gear and if in 5th then you may get another 10mph from it but to what purpose.
However on a K75 there would be some gain especially in the lower 3 gears.
