Any way because I had this already opened:

I went and looked and incredibly enough the owner's manual for the 84-89 is still listed, BMW part number 01479798447 at around $30.00 US.

And they are listed here as downloads, but my antivirus is telling me not to trust that site.

Thumbs up Hi -

Welcome to the club - I had an 85 K100RS - probably a littermate to yours. A joy to own and frankly to work on too. Not clear which workshop manual you have, many of us like the Clymer manual.

I now have a 2004 KGT - and love the technology and fear the repairs!!!!

Ride safely!!

Low fuel

G'day gracey,
To answer your question on the fuel light, there is no fuel tap on fuel injected bikes, when the red light glows you have about 35km. worth of fuel reserves. Strongly recommend you don't regularly run it that low. If the speedometer is working, it's not the pickup that is affecting your odometer.
My speedo quit 2 years ago and I didn't even bother to fix it this time. Way too much of a distraction anyway, I know I'm breakin the posted speed limit most of the time, can tell that by the tach and because the mirrors stopped vibrating at 140kph. Only thing I miss is the auto turn signal cancellation.
