Let me say hi as a new member
My name is Rob and I'm a new k-bike owner and a new sidecar owner.
I've owwned various motorcycles over the last 50+ years and BMW airheads over the last 20+, but only recently purchased an '86 K75C with Velorex 700 sidecar.
Trying to get used to driving a sidecar and wrenching on a k-bike all at the same time and needless to say, this leaves me a little overwhelmed some times.
So far, I've swapped out a badly rain damaged instrument cluster and replaced it with an '85 k100 panel on which I also had to replace the odometer gears. I also swapped in a K100 radiator.
I'm still fighting with the cooling fan circuit (doesn't work) and some vapor lock problems, which I think are mostly the result of the fan problems. For the moment, I cobbled up an on/off switch and am using this to try to keep the cooling under control.
Biggest adjustments are getting used to a cooling system and fuel injection and a smallish tank and fuel range. I very much like the bike but occasionally miss the simplicity and range of my other bike, a 1993 airhead R100GSPD.
Looking forward to learning from this group.
