Taking her out before The Quail.
Man that bike looks like icebergs out of the water...
Where's the wife sitting?:huh
Ok, I parlayed my '85 klr into and '86 K75C...
I've been searching, but not locating, how to set the dash clock... I've found about everything else, even how to make it a 24 hour clock, but no setting instructions.
just use a pencil and press the 2 little button's, it's easy,,
That's kind of what I was thinking, but I tried to press one with my swiss army knifes tooth pick, it folded like a cheap suit.
I will try with a couple of pencils. Thanks!
use a blunt pencil though, you dont want to pierce the rubber membrain,, and be gentle,,
Thanks, that's a good tip too.
Theres that dang avatar again
I've always just used the tip of the ignition key to set the clock.
The pencil thing only works if you buy the "Special Tool - Clocking Setting Device" from the dealer - which is a No. 2 pencil with a roundel on it that costs $10.
After my toolmaking on this one, that may be the best advice yet.
I probably way over-achieved on this one, I took a scrap 3" piece of #12 solid electrical wire, stripped back about a inch and blunted the tip with my dremel...
"Würden die deutschen stolz sein."
Sorry all I have is the crappy cell phone pick teaser for now:
Another quick question, if I may, there is a cross member that you may be able to make out in my crappy pic above. It is in front of the clutch lever in this pick and it extends across front of the brake lever? I've been looking for it in my manual, but haven't seen it yet (what a manual for not being a FSM, it's a Clymer, but much better than the one I have for my Suzuki).
Also is the cockpit fairing correct for this bike, it doesn't quite match the pics and diagrams in the manual? It has 2 small weird shaped pieces that bolt on to those holes you see on the fairing.
Your headlight faring is aftermarket.
And where might one find such fairing? Any other info? That looks close to something that might have come from the factory.
It must be a pretty nice one, because you can't tell it's not factory, compared to the other body pieces. Other than it is a different design from a BMW part.
It's does sit nicely. I have no idea who makes it.....SEARCH
Once I get a chance I will see if there are any tags or markings on the inside. I didn't have much luck searching google.
Turn signals are K stock - although it looks like somebody may have angled the bases some to make them horizontal.
Here are a few better pics I snapped after a little maintenance and before a 30 mile shakedown...
Very nice indeed. I think I'm hooked
I still have a lot of catch up maintenance to do. I would guess the best time to change out the final drive oil would be during the dreaded spline maintenance. So I don't have to worry about spilling it?
