The K1100RS is gone after 7 years, the riding position was really starting to kill my wrists & I couldn't take the crappy potholed/roadworks roads around here on it any more ... major earthquakes ...

Jim: I've installed the CCS-100 cruise on a K1100LT, 3 K1100RSs, a K100RS4V, a K1 and 3 K75s. Not a single one of them has required the use of a vacuum reserve canister.

Well, my cruise control i ...

There's been >6000 officially, but the count to us humans depends on where you are and how deep the quake was - plus we're getting used to them a bit after 8 months, so in some ways you notice them ...

Thanks for the comments Jim & Merlin - still around, still on the RS, sadly still having quakes so for various personal/work reasons the riding has dropped back a fair bit! (Did manage a new timin ...

Thanks for the kind thoughts all... Christchurch will pull through, but there is an awful lot of raw emotion going around down here, and it does get to you; in some cases it's even sadder as the victi ...

It's likely a little current leakage in the transistor that drives the light inside the Motronic unit (remember, the temp light also gets used to count out the fault codes too) ... they probably never ...

I think John & Cathy are in Auckland? (and probably glad to be!)

Family (and KRS) all OK here, but Christchurch is buggered, basically... 6.3 earthquake equates to about 42 kilotons of TNT. Let ...

Suppose it's a bit of a lesson for us all - the K11s aren't getting any younger, powder coat paint doesn't last forever and when steel and alloy meet with water you get an electrolytic corrosion that' ...

Why do K75s have different spark plug leads than a K100? Got me.

Because each coil on a 75 only fires ONE plug... 3 coils (for assymetrical timing), 3 plugs.

4cyl engines use the "wasted s ...

If it helps with the OEM grips, you can replace the grip rubbers themselves too fairly cheaply - you need two sets of aftermarket grips - I think I've got "ProGrips" - because it's the 24mm ...

Don't forget your velcro gloves if you are going to UnZud.

And your sunnies. And your cruise control.

And nothing like a down under Christmas too, a different kind of white-out... this was New Y ...
