Cool2 k75 rear wheel frustration..!!

Hi there Muddy3, I stumbled across your thread and hopefully you can enlighten me somewhat. I need to resolve the same issue that you have already done. Had my project bike for some time now but only started to look into the rear wheel issue earlier this year. Work is draining all my time at present but I need to push forward now. To keep the rear disc and drive from my k75 doner bike which rear wheel or hub will fit straight on with or without machining.?? I have read many many threads on this issue but it still leaves me spinning, which hub is on your bike..?? Could you also tell me what calliper and rotor were fitted by Woody etc..??
Thanks in advance, Mez/UK

Rear wheel woes.

Apologies for hijacking the thread on my first post, poor form I know

Hi Mez, .I am starting the same conversion, but its early days yet. I have gone for GS1150 rear wheel, looks a little wide and there could be problems with the caliper hitting the spokes. I will have a little play this weekend.

I also have some DRZ 400 front forks, and going to look at a K1100 paralever final drive set up tomorrow night, that is in a poor state.

I will start a thread on SAR, when I'm ready.

Mike

K75 rear wheel frustration..!!

Hi Mike, I've just bid on a 1150 rear wheel so fingers crossed...!!! I had an email back from Zach at woody's wheels and the 1150 wheel will fit with some machining etc... the 1150 disc, calliper and carrier has to be used also. The rim will have to be relaced and offset or the wheel itself spaced. Would be great to share a thread with you mate for comparisons etc etc... Keep me upto date ok..

K75GS rear wheel

Sorry guys for the slow reply. I've been out of town shooting speed goats in Wyo. for the last week.

flipflopdog has it exactly correct...the parts are all 1150 with the wheel re-laced w/ offset.

The Shiver forks are fine although I've gone with KYB forks from a YZ450F reworked by RG3 for my next project. The new project is a fleebay/homebuilt version of a HPN boxer. Rolling chassis is done, need engine and 11 gallon HPN tank...photos to follow!

Nice build!

Can you tell us what you did for a seat?

I looked at the Baja Designs Driving lights thinking I could do 1 for a more traditional look,.............but...........looks like these do not come in a dual filament HI/LO configuration. Wondering if that kind of a bulb/socket could be fitted?

Yes, Boatman does a conversion ring. Here's the result.

And how about the seat. A modified OE saddle? or something you fabbed up. Thinking I see a tag on the left side,....possibly a Corbin tag?

I know nothing about fork exchanges. Can you educate us a bit on what criteria you used for selecting a fork/wheel assembly,...........or.....can any dirt bike fork and wheel assembly be adapted? If so, how is a non-bolt on fork assembly modified to fit the K75?

Do you mod the new fork assembly triple clamp to fit the K75,....or somehow shim the new forks to fit the BMW triple clamp?? (assuming the new fork tubes are smaller in diameter).

Brian

Here's one from Quebec , Canada.

2 configurations, two-up or Adventure with a modified 30 liter gas tank. It takes 45 minutes to do the switch over . Tank, seat, tail part & rack, bags are modular sections for quick on and off.

TWO-UP
