Some time ago, I install in my K one of these Pichler fairings.









Now waiting restoration and painting Nero Dark.
Headlamp is a reference used in quite a few Japanese car (suzuki, Daihatsu.....)

I guess once you have the mold there's no use in breaking it, huh?

I really like those Pischler fairings on the K75. Makes for a very nice sport touring machine.
Yea. Current owner of both bought them a while back as a package deal and only wants one so he's selling the pickled K75.

Ski boots provide much rash protection on pavement?

It's a good thing that I wear a size 10. I don't think that a 10.5 would fit in a city case.

Checked for play in the Final Drive last week and there it was.

With it apart, there was nothing obvious,



Cleaned-up everything,



New seal and then slipped-on the new bearing,



Nailed it all back together and went for a nice little test-ride.



I'm a bit pissed-off with BMW and Final-Drive bearing issues. I'd have thought it would last more than 22 years and 99,000 miles!

I hate to say it, fellas, but I had a very happy day last Saturday. My K75S went to its new home. Good riddance!!

All humor aside, I do appreciate all the knowledge in this thread for the flying brick. Keep the oily side down.

Just did 3,000+ miles from Wisconsin to Seattle via Denver, Steamboat, The Tetons, Yellowstone, Beartooth Pass and The North Cascades Highway. I was on the K75S and my buddy was on the K1100RS. Sweet ride....

Nice Pics. How many miles did you average in a day?

Day 1: Late start but slabbed 364 miles
Day 2: Slabbed 712 miles from Des Moines through f'n rainstorm in Denver to Iderhoe Springs
Day 3: 364 miles to campground at Flaming Gorge
Day 4: 367 miles through Tetons and some of Jellystone. Park campgrounds were full but we found a Forest Service campground 3 miles west of W. Jellystone
Day 5: More of Jellystone, Beartooth Pass, some I-90 slab and then 2-laner to Great Falls - 428 miles
Day 6: Great Falls to Glacier, Going to the Sun and then on to some campground on Hwy 2 - 404 miles
Day 7: Campground to Omak, North Cascades Hwy and on to Seattle - 515 miles

So I guess our average was 451 miles per day. He and I (and his gal occasionally) have done lots of day riding together in SoCal and pretty much travel at the same bullshit to riding ratio.
