Only one rotor on the front? That must take FOREVER to stop.

it felt to me it was over-braked on the front, so i sold the disc & caliper, stop's fine for me, think twin disc's on a lot of bike's are a fashion statement anyway,

OVER-braked? Wow. I've always thought they were UNDER-braked. (and under-forked too) That's why I put a K1100 front end on my K75 - to get 4 pot calipers and a 20mm master cylinder.

But hey, to each their own and whatever works for you on your bike.

Nice to know it's not just me. I'm going to hell for it. But, oh well.

May want to post a photo of your bike for suggestions. You may be able to buy brackets that attach to forks. Measure exterior MM of your forks and search.

I mean this affectionately, this is the worst looking K75 I've ever seen, I'd ride the piss out of it, good job! Can just imagine how much worse the already crappy gear box feels with the linkages, that things got more false nuetrals than gears.
