1994 K75 in Arlington
« on: September 01, 2018, 03:43:39 PM »
I bought this one from another Virginia rider. It's well kept and set up. I have done oil changes on the motor, trans and the final drive. The Rifle fairing does a lot of protecting. Hopefully, the humidity will go down, making rides more comfortable here.
  Things to do: replace the clutch cable. Pump in fresh brake fluid. Check the plugs.
Cheers,
Bill

Nice ride, nice color. Might want to replace those brake lines at some point.

Wilkommen!

Nice looking bike, how many miles?

Along with the the fluid changes be sure to do a spline lube if you don't know when/if it has been done.

Very nice looking K75.  Do you know what kind of seat it has?  Looks like a low seat, but doesn't have that big rubber thing on the back of the tank.

Based on some of the problems I've seen others have, you might want to pull the starter apart and check the brushes along with cleaning the carbon dust out of the commutator.  Another job to forestall electrical whack would be to go into the ignition switch and clean it out as well.  These two items are responsible for a good share of strange electrical whack that can be very hard to diagnose.

.... and you have the valued tailbox.

ICONIC tailbox!  It's valuable because it is ICONIC!  Also, you replacing the clutch cable because it's fraying or just preventive maintenance? If it's not in bad shape consider just routing the new one next to the old one and not hooking it up.  When and if the old one fails it's quick and simple to switch them out.  And lube that little barrel on the clutch cable hand lever end!

Yes, that's it! ICONIC. Apologies as I get ramped up on the Brick lingo and Cheezguistics of this forum. :)

my tendency is not to wait for the old one to die...i would put the new one in now...and keep the OLD one as a spare.  decrease the chance of replacement on the road..
