Need help with K75 gauge and headlight (pictures)
« on: May 12, 2017, 02:56:22 PM »

Hey everyone. I could really use some help here. I've been searching all over looking for the correct brackets I need.




I purchased this '90 K75s last month and am resurrecting it from almost 20 years of storage and neglect. It's come a long way. I've so far done:




New tires.
New battery.
Oil change with 15w20 Mobil 1 and new filter.
New 80w90 trans fluid.
Flushed brake fluid.
Splines (this weekend with Honda Moly60. + final drive oil.
New (from fellow Motobricker) Corbin Rumble seat.
Dissasembled, cleaned and lubed throttle linkage.
New grips.
New Fuel hoses (inside and out).
New fuel filter.
New vacuum hose and clamps
New air filter.
New plugs.
Radiator flush, with Prestone extended life (orange)
Misc parts. (electronics cover, tank grommets, valve cover trim panel, crankcase breather, roundels, vacuum caps, switch covers)


I've attached a couple pics. The first is the bike as it was pulled from the PO's garage, the 2nd is as it is now.



As you can see there's a fairly good size hole on the right fairing. There's also a crack in the belly pan and small dent in the right tank.




My goal here is to fix and refinish the plastics, but due to $$, it's going to take a couple months. I'll have to get a compressor, paint gun kit and bone up on some fiberglass repair.
In the meantime I'm going to leave the plastics off and ride it naked.




I could really use your guys help in finding the correct part #'s to mount the gauge cluster and a headlight to the forks. I'd like to go with a flat black 7" or 8" headlight. I'll mount the after market turn signals also. (they're currently mounted through the 75s fairing support bracket)




I've been searching through the forums and can see there's a ton of different ways to do this, but I'd really like to find the oem bmw brackets that were used on the non fairing K75 bikes. Help?




I'd really appreciate any thoughts or advice. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I should have been clearer. I saw that diagram on maxbmw, but I'm looking for the bracket without the surround panel..like this:





Also, sorry I didn't know to use bbcode earlier..got that figured out.

Plus the backing plate (part#1) from the image you posted?

The first diagram is the K75C setup. The second diagram is the K75 standard setup. My bike has that. It is the less complex of the two.

This was a 1992 K75 RT. I converted it to a stock K75.
