K100 RS fork questions
Hello, all. Changed fork oil and a leaky seal over the weekend ('91 K100 RS), couple of questions.
The manual refers to two different types of forks, each requiring their own quantity of oil. How do I know if I have "sport suspension" or not? Rear shock is a Koni.
I was not able to remove the spring from the fork I opened up. On other bikes (non-BMW) I have worked on they have simply lifted out. Hoping there is not a piece missing under the spring causing it to ride down onto something down there. On assembly, there was tension on the cap, as I had to push it down firmly to start the threads.
Also, after repairing both the front brake switch and the ABS rocker switch, I cannot clear the light with the directions I found (grounding middle connection while holding switch for 8 to 10 seconds) I am now able to change the flashing to a steady glow, however.
Finding quite a few loose ends on this bike, all from the previous owner's "ingenuity".
