Back to Bikes
« on: November 19, 2013, 05:02:31 AM »
Hi all. Just took the plunge and bought a K75. 1987 K with 62k miles on her in very good nick,drives lovely. I'm getting back into motorbikes after an absence of 25 years.Seems to be the perfect machine to do it on. one thing I've noticed is the machine seems very difficult to push around or manouevre backwards so wondering is brake binding a common issue?

Hello, welcome.
I suggest you get it up on it's center stand then spin the wheels to see what's going on.  (have someone push down on the rear of the bike to get the front wheel up.  Probably a brake hanging up which needs to be cleaned up.
