Looks like it's a Parabellum Scout.

The /2 standards (91+) had a rear disc.

At first I was like Extra gauge, goofy paint, really bad graphics, price...

Then I was like Whoa, turbo!

Wow

Hopefully it goes fast enough so that nobody has to look at it for very long.

Electric ... 2 - 3 psi boost. Low pressure supercharger would be a closer description. But seeing as how the pressure enters before the filter ... how many leaks does the standard airbox now have ?

The seats a Hannigan, the fairing is a Parabellum Scout.
And yes, she looks wonderful in green. Original paint job was blue but I'm happy the PO painted it green. Still trying to get the Fox twin clicker adjusted correctly. Being short + hannigan seat + aftermarket suspension = waddle parking

Serious question though: are the front forks supposed to be recessed into the top triple tree a little? She handles fine and eats up the occasional pothole like a champ, but i cant find any information as to why the front forks would be recessed into the triple tree.... only about 1/8" recessed... any idea?

Yeah, that seems like a funky (read: bad) design.
That's much closer to a ram air system...
But hey.... that might not necessarily be a bad thing for a brick?
Usually its a bad idea without tuning since a ram air duct causes a hyper-lean condition. This causes a drop in power but better mileage, BUT without an O2 sensor the fuel delivery remains the same increasing horsepower due to more complete combustion. (albeit minutely generally). All in all the bike should have a scoop, not a "turbo".

On every K bike I've ever owned the tops of the forks have always been more or less flush with the top of the upper triple tree or maybe just a hair above. I've heard of people with shorter inseams dropping the triple trees down the forks a bit but have never heard of, and can't imagine why, someone would go the other way - especially since it would be a great way to trap puddles of rain to induce corrosion in the tops of the forks.

Thanks for the info, and yes water does occasionally get trapped in the recession. I'm going to call my local BMW shop and tell them whats up.
I'm short and i'm tire of going tippy toed through parking lots, hopefully fixing this will help a bit. Shouldn't be too hard to shimmy the forks up a tad, i just want to know the exact measurement of how far (not covered in a hanes manual) To the phone i go! Thanks.

It's not rocket surgery to put them back where they should be. Very easy to do yourself.

Jack up the front end under the oil sump.

Loosen the pinch bolts in the upper and lower fork trees.

Twist/rotate the upper fork tubes while pulling up on them until the tops of the forks are flush with the top of the upper fork tree.

Re-tighten pinch bolts.

Got a new to me 86 k100, and was having fun for a few rides, until the clutch cable snapped today...

I ordered the part already, does anyone know if a mechanical dufus can do the job at home?

Tie a piece of wire to the rear end of the old one, pull it out from the front and then use the wire to pull the new one through.

got my K1200RS ('Klaudia') back together enough yesterday to fire her up let her run for a few minutes. I still have to put the bodywork and luggage rails back on, but I've been missing riding her.
